Sitting elevated in the Dorset downs in a majestic position overlooking the Frome Valley. A quirky layout gives for a unique stay with large open areas, snooker room, tower, open fireplaces all with magnificent views.
Sitting amid a small coppice, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, find many ways to spend your days here. Boasting far-reaching views towards the glittering ocean, over the majestic Hardy’s monument, this home exudes country house charm and plenty of character. Sleeping eight over four bedrooms, this lodge is the perfect destination for groups of family and friends and has lots to keep you all entertained. Chalk up your cue and get competitive on the three-quarter-sized snooker table or cosy up in the Admiral’s Well before climbing spiral stairs up to the top of the tower which commands fantastic views.
Follow the private farm track to reach your destination (level and firm but not tarmacked) and marvel at the splendour of this former shooting lodge. The charm and character only continues inside with flagstone flooring, exposed stone walls and decorative antlers throughout. Perfect for large parties, the fresh, bright kitchen has all you need to feed eight hungry guests, with ample space to designate more than one chef, and two fridges to fill. After fun-filled days together you’ll want to enjoy a communal dinner and raise a glass! The long dining table comfortably seats eight guests and has a gorgeous cabin-style feel, whilst the outdoor furniture is the place to be in summer when the days are long and warm. Take a tipple outside and toast to your fabulous location or invite fellow guests to meet you in the snooker room for a lively evening. With a handful of places to unwind, curl up at the bottom of the tower in the Admiral’s Well, or put your feet up on one of the sofas sitting beneath a spectacular chandelier with 42 oil-filled candles and antlers. Command one of the ground-floor king-size bedrooms and relish in their charming style - with either the free-standing bathtub for lazy soaks, or the en-suite shower room, these rooms are lovely places in which to rise and shine. On the first floor, the final king-size room has a striking internal balcony overlooking the snooker room where little ones will need to take care. The final bedroom is perfect for younger guests and fun-filled sleepover and storytimes. There is ample off-road parking available.
