The Experience

The living area has a fireplace with a cosy wood burning stove and two over-size leather snuggler chairs.

It has a bespoke kitchen/dining/sitting area fully equipped with double oven, hob, dishwasher, washer/dryer and pod coffee maker.

The bedroom area has a super-king size, handmade Vispring bed with Egyptian cotton linen and down duvet.

The bed can be separated to two singles upon request. From the bedroom there is a generous bathroom with a bath and a large open walk-in shower.

The village pub is just a minute away from the cottage, and a five minute drive away or two mile walk sees you at Hardy’s Monument with stunning views across beautiful Dorset countryside and out to Weymouth Bay.

Nearby Iron Age Maiden Castle Hillfort offers excellent walking opportunities, and the towns of Dorchester and Weymouth are a short drive away with plenty of shops, museums, restaurants and cinemas to visit.
