Escape to a peaceful pocket of Dorset with this charming home-from-home that’s full of original features.
Situated in a row of cottages on a no through lane, this property is perfect for those in search of some peace and quiet. At the end of the lane, a bridleway leads to the privately-owned pebble and shingle beach at Seatown, popular among fossil collectors, fishermen and families alike.

A 4-mile drive east will bring you to West Bay, a bustling seaside resort also known as the golden gateway to the Jurassic Coast.
