  • Perfect hideaway for both relaxation-seekers and sports-enthusiasts alike 
  • Soak up the fresh sea air in this peaceful location tucked away down a private farm lane
  • Ideal for beach lovers with direct walks from your front door to the nearest beach
Property code: DC087

Enjoying a peaceful countryside location in the picturesque village of Chideock, this lovely barn conversion boasts space, comfort and is in a great location being sandwiched between country and coast.

With a footpath across the fields to the South West Coast Path and Seatown beach, this property enjoys excellent access to local amenities and beauty spots. Walk under a mile to the nearby shingle beach and inhale revitalising lungfuls of salty, sea air. No trip to the area would be complete without visiting the stunning Golden Cap, 2 miles away. Only 0.5 miles inland, the local thatched pub is worth a visit, too, for a drink in the sunny beer garden or hot meal by the fire. For the best of culture and coast, drive 7.5 miles to Lyme Regis, the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, to wander past colourful beach huts and visit the town’s many beaches.

The middle property in a row of three, this delightful barn conversion is set amongst former farm buildings and boasts delightful countryside views towards the coastline. Providing ample space, privacy and style, every aspect of the property’s interior has been carefully thought out. Step into the entrance hall and kick off your shoes. A small WC is located off the hallway, before you step through to the light and airy open-plan living area. A delightful open space, the lounge/kitchen/diner manages to have both a warm, cosy feel as well as plenty of room to spread out. Melt into one of the lounge’s cosy sofas and turn on the Smart TV or look out through the French doors onto the gravel terrace outside. In the winter, an electric effect wood burner provides a welcome addition, throwing a radiant glow across the room. Backing onto the lounge is the kitchen; a stylish, well-provisioned space which has everything you could need for your stay, including a breakfast bar and more. Amongst the many utensils and appliances, you will find an oven with electric hob, a fridge, a freezer, a microwave, a toaster and a kettle. A dishwasher is even provided for post-meal harmony. To complete the living area, a dining table sits to one side of the room, basking in light from the windows. Upstairs, many of the rooms enjoy fantastic countryside views. Home to three bedrooms, your guests can take their pick from a king-size bedroom which has TV/DVD, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom with a pull-out bed stored below (on request at time of booking). Also upstairs is the family bathroom, including a bath with a shower overhead, WC and a heated towel rail.

Stepping outside, there is a fenced gravel garden to the rear where you can make use of a sunny terrace and a BBQ. You can also feel free to explore the shared recreational lawns close by. Making life a little easier for groups, there is also dedicated parking available for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Stunning location and very spacious and altogether nice holiday cottage. Shame that the maintenance is not good and the cleaners not very vigilant.

Reviewed by Mr C Stickley 30th April 2019

We enjoyed our stay at Larch Cottage, it is situated in an excellent position for walks to Seatown Beach and the surrounding countryside. However, the picnic table in the back garden needs attention, it needs re-varnishing and strengthening because it wasn't level. The BBQ could do with replacing because it was corroded.In the kitchen the grill witRead moreh the cooker didn't work(we left a note for the caretaker). Hide
