This is an idyllic country cottage situated close to a quiet and picturesque town and is perfect for a family seeking a quiet retreat within a few miles of the glorious Dorset coastline.

The cottage is situated just half a mile from the picturesque town of Beaminster, where you will find a variety of fantastic places to eat and drink. Nearby attractions include the Beaminster Museum, Pilsdon Pen (6 miles), Lewesdon Hill (4 miles) and the Jacobean Mapperton House and Gardens (2.5 miles). Heading towards the coast you can explore the bustling market town of Bridport (6.5 miles). Dorset’s Jurassic Coast has miles of glorious beaches, with West Bay (8 miles), Charmouth Beach (11.5 miles) and Chesil Beach (21 miles) all easily accessible. Enjoying a fantastic location in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the cottage is ideal for visiting Yeovil, Cerne Abbas and Lyme Regis (all within 15 miles).

Approached via a flagstone path and a couple of steps, this beautiful detached stone cottage retains plenty of original features including exposed ceiling beams and a feature fireplace in the welcoming lounge/diner. The spacious and tastefully furnished lounge also features a wood burner and plenty of comfortable seating allowing you to snuggle up with a movie on the TV/DVD, listen to music via the iPod dock or read a good book. There’s a delightful dining area, perfect for an evening meal. Moving into the kitchen, there’s another dining area, ideal for a snack or breakfast. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. The dryer is housed in the shed. Exploring the ground floor further, there’s also a delightful conservatory looking out towards the garden. Heading up the winding staircase you will find three bright and cosy bedrooms. There’s a double room, one twin room and a single room. There is also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. Please note there are some low doorways.

Outside, and reached via some steps, you will find a charming back garden with a lawn, trees, shrubs, terrace and outdoor furniture, making this an ideal spot to sit back and relax with a BBQ or a drink in the evening. A stream bed runs beside the house – it is almost dry during summer but parents should take care with young children. A footpath leads to two more houses and then into the farmland.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20 for up to 7 nights, £40 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20 for every week or part week thereafter.
