Once the coach house to the neighbouring pub this stylish property enjoys a rural village location in the mid-Dorset countryside. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors this is a fantastic location thanks to its location on the edge of the Dorset Area of Natural Beauty and there are many miles of enjoyable walks to be had in the area including the bracing but rewarding Giants Walk up to the huge chalk figure carved in the hillside at Cerne Abbas. Nine miles to the south of the property the town of Dorchester has a number of attractions of interest to visitors including a Tutankhamun museum a teddy bear museum and a dinosaur museum.
This quaint cottage is an ideal place for a restful break away from the stresses of daily life and as soon as guests step inside the lounge/diner they will be able to immediately make themselves at home in the cosy surroundings. The beamed ceiling adds to the authentic feel of the cottage and the comfortable leather sofas are great for curling up in front of the warming wood burner and listening to some music on the iPod dock or relaxing in front of a film on the TV/DVD. The dining table which seats four is situated next to the kitchen area where there is a Range-style oven hob microwave fridge with small freezer compartment and dishwasher.
The washer/dryer is located separately in a utility cupboard. Also downstairs is the wet room which offers a shower and WC. Upstairs there are two bedrooms both of which have some reduced-head height due to the sloping cottage-style ceilings.
The first bedroom is a double room which has a seating area with a sofa and plenty of room to set up a cot whilst the second bedroom is an L-shaped twin room. One fantastic additional feature of the property are the speakers in most rooms which are linked up to stereo in the lounge allowing guests to enjoy music from all over the house. Outside there is a small seating area for guests to enjoy and they also have use of the neighbouring pub garden which has a play area for children aged under-eight.
