Property code: 76544

Escape to Dorset and make this fantastic home your base. Sitting 29 miles north of Lulworth Cove, enjoy days on the Jurassic Coast hunting out fossils, swimming in the sea and marvelling at magnificent sights such as Durdle Door. With many beauty spots and well-trodden trails close to home, spend hours exploring in the great outdoors before returning for competitive games nights on the table football table, relaxing evenings in the hot tub and sociable BBQ dinners or three-course feasts. Sleeping eight guests over four bedrooms, and one of your dogs, this gorgeous, characterful home is the perfect destination for getaways with family and friends.

 

With parking for four cars, pull up at this charming abode and unload your bags with ease. Make your way inside and head straight for the kitchen/diner so you can stack the cupboards with provisions and put the kettle on for a welcoming brew. Bright, airy and with splashes of cool blue, the kitchen has all the space you need to cook up a storm. The large American-style fridge/freezer is great for storing leftovers which can be rustled up and popped into tomorrow’s picnic, and the dishwasher is a real helping hand when clearing up after eight hungry guests. Pile the table high with serving dishes and plates or dine alfresco amongst the pretty herbaceous borders and views across the surrounding pastures. Top off your dinner with a soak in the hot tub or stay dry and challenge guests to a game of table football. After days out and about, leave boots in the utility room and light the wood burners in the lounge and the snug, giving you the option to stay sociable and chat about your adventures, or to sneak a moment of peace and quiet with a good book or a magazine. There is also a quiet reading spot on the galleried landing which leads to the four pretty bedrooms, one of which is treated to an en-suite with a roll-top bath. Take care of the sloping ceilings in bedrooms which sit in the eaves of the house.
