  • Ground floor annexe located on a private estate near the village of Broadmayne

  • Dine alfresco in the peace and tranquillity of the patio and garden
Property code: DC026

Reached via a private lane, this beautiful bolthole for two is perfect for romantic getaways and solo adventures exploring Dorset’s rolling countryside and world-famous Jurassic Coast.

4 miles from the coast and 4.5 miles from Dorchester, you can choose between town strolls or coastal vibes as you tear yourself away from your private abode. Providing the best of both worlds, the seaside town of Weymouth is only 8 miles away and definitely worth a visit. Wander along the shoreline with a melt-in-your-mouth ice cream and listen to the gentle lap of waves against the shore. Once you’ve had your fill, head 8 miles in the other direction to Durdle Door and snap a photo of the iconic limestone arch.

A homely annexe in the east wing of an original Victorian mansion, this property has comfort and class in abundance. Make your way up the lane and cross the terrace. Opening the front door, you are met with a surprisingly spacious living area, stylishly designed in an open-play layout. Overlooked by a vaulted ceiling with open beams, the space also has a feature brick wall – now the home of a TV and coal-effect electric fire. After a long journey, the property’s big, plump sofa will be an irresistible perch as you sit and take in your surroundings. Turn on the music system for some background music or simply listen to the birdsong through the large windows all around the living area. When you are ready, make your way over to the kitchen, just behind the lounge. Here a well-equipped space provides everything you could need for your holiday, including an oven with an electric hob and a fridge with an icebox. For extra convenience, a washing machine is provided – a useful addition for washing post-walk trousers. Down a short corridor you will find the property’s bedroom featuring a 5ft double bed, and the bathroom with jacuzzi bath with overhead shower.

Outside, you have the choice of two gardens for sun throughout the day. To the side of the annexe is a garden with terrace, lawn and pretty plants, and to the rear is a south-facing terrace that acts as a real suntrap in the summer months. There is off-road parking for 1 car available.

We enjoyed our stay in Buzzards Beau. A very well decorated and stylish cottage in a quiet location. Luckily the weather was very good when we stayed and was not far from places of interest. Lulworth cove and Durdle door are a must to visit, also Abbotsbury sub tropical gardens and the Swannery.

This cottage is wonderful. Tucked away and quiet it is just the spot for a "getaway from it all". We found every thing in the cottage as described and more. Central for all the locations a visitor would want to visit, the cottage lends itself to a tow or more week break. We wanted to stay longer --- what more can you say!
