Located in a small village in West Dorset, this property boasts great access to a diverse range of scenes. Head 5 miles away to West Bay and stroll along the beach. Once you’ve walked all you can walk, drive a couple of miles further down the coast and treat yourself to a hot chocolate at a beachside cafe. For an insight into local history and unmissable views, visit Eggardon Hill, 3.5 miles away, the site of an Iron Age hill fort. Closer to home, a popular dog-friendly pub is only 400 metres away from your front door.
A little pathway through a private garden takes you to the front of the cottage. Step into the porch and shake off your coats and boots before heading into the lounge. A spacious, welcoming room, the lounge is kitted out with two comfortable armchairs and a sofa so you can find your perfect spot. In winter, a wood burner provides extra atmosphere and warmth as you unwind with your favourite book. The lounge is also equipped with a TV and DVD player, so you can catch up on your favourite soap or watch a film. Passing through the lounge, a step up will take you into the kitchen. With a dining table for two and plenty of space for cooking or chatting with a glass of wine, you will immediately make yourself at home. Well-provisioned with everything you could need for your stay, there is an oven with a hob, microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle for you to use, and in the adjoining utility room, a dishwasher, washing machine and freezer. Heading back to the lounge, the bathroom can also be found on the ground floor. Separated into two rooms, the first has a bath with a shower over the bath and the second has a WC. Steep cottage-style stairs lead upstairs, you will find the bedroom. Here, neutral tones are complemented with open beams and pretty details to create a relaxing space. Featuring a slightly reduced head height set in the eaves, the bedroom has a double bed for you to sink into for a cosy night’s sleep.
Walking out through the utility room you will reach the property’s rear garden. Sit back with a cup of tea around the outside table and listen to the gentle gurgle of the stream running through the garden.
