New to our collection for 2017. Surrounded by fields often visited by resident livestock, this detached character property overlooks a natural pond and is full of charm. With stone floors, inglenook fireplace, wood-panelling and low ceilings the property retains much of its original charm and style.

The picturesque village of Frome St Quintin is the ideal base for families and couples to explore the Jurassic coast and rural landscape of West Dorset. For lovers of the outdoors the location is perfect for long walks with stops in one of many country pubs. Visit the county town of Dorchester, a must for history lovers with two of Thomas Hardy’s former homes, the county museum and military keep. Take a day out to Weymouth with its sandy beach, historic Brewers Quay and many independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Slightly further afield are Athelhampton House, Abbotsbury gardens and swannery, Haynes Motor Museum, Cerne Abbas Giant, Fleet Air Arm Museum, National Trust properties, West Bay (of TV Broadchurch fame) and the market towns of Sherborne and Beaminster.

The accommodation offers TWO bedrooms: each accessed via separate steep, cottage-style stairs. 1 king-size, with adjacent shower room and WC and 1 twin, with separate WC. Lounge: with wood burner (first basket of logs included). Snug: with Smart TV and selection of books and games.

Regret no smoking. 2 dogs welcome, dogs are to be kept on leads at all times. Additional info: restricted head height due to low ceilings and doorways. Strictly no BBQ’s allowed due to the thatch. The owner advises there will occasionally be farm animals around the outside of the enclosed garden and on the vehicle track. Location: beach 11 miles, pub and shop 2 miles.
