A stunning 19th-century former gardener’s cottage nestled within a private estate offering a wonderful base to explore the beauty of the Jurassic Coastline and picturesque countryside of West Dorset.
Make the most of your peaceful surroundings whilst being perfectly situated to explore many of the nearby attractions. Head down the steep cliff path to the estates' beautiful private beach, sitting less than a mile away or venture just 3.5 miles from the cottage to arrive in the picture-perfect coastal town of Lyme Regis. Here you will find a museum and art gallery alongside an abundance of quaint shops and eateries. From here, you can continue along the coast to uncover the fossil-rich cliff sides and sandy beaches. If you’d prefer to venture inland, you are just 13 miles away from the very heart of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Upon entry into the hall, you’ll discover a welcoming open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area offering bags of character, with many of the cottage’s original features retained including vaulted ceilings and floorboards. The colourful lounge is home to ample seating, SkyTV and a Bluetooth sound system, so you can unwind in comfort following a day of sightseeing. The well-equipped kitchen comes complete with all the amenities you’ll need to cook up a storm including a dishwasher, before sitting down in the cosy dining area to enjoy homecooked meals. Across the hall sits a restful double bedroom, complete with soft furnishings for a peaceful night’s sleep and a door to the terrace. Next door is the spacious bathroom boasting a bathtub with shower overhead.
There’s much to be enjoyed outside also. From the pretty terrace, make your way up the 11 steps to reach the well-maintained walled garden complete with patio seating area. Fire up the BBQ and enjoy afternoons in the sun during the summer months or throw down a picnic blanket and lose yourself in a good book. Furthermore, guests of the estate have access to a private beach located 1 mile away; a real treat to be appreciated. The cottage offers off-road parking.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
