Grade II listed cottage offering a delightful holiday retreat for guests, featuring period details alongside architect-designed contemporary fixtures, situated just 3.5 miles from the seaside town of Swanage.
This property is situated in a quiet countryside location on Dorset’s Isle of Purbeck, within a few miles of the coast at Swanage to the east and Dancing Ledge to the south. Each of these offer very different seaside experiences, with Swanage boasting a wide sandy beach next to which visitors will find a swathe of cafes, kiosks, beach shops, and deckchair hire. Dancing Ledge, meanwhile, is part of the breathtaking rugged coastline of the Jurassic Coast, famed for its fossil-rich beaches, this whole area is renowned for its breath-taking walks with magnificent seascapes. To the north of the village, Corfe Castle is a popular day trip, as are Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World.
The front door of this 18th century cottage opens directly into the charming lounge, a wonderfully cosy room with a comfortable sofa, a window seat, an open fire, and a Netflix-enabled TV. Next to the lounge, the kitchen/diner has been thoughtfully updated in a contemporary style and features bi-fold doors which allow guests to extend the space out into the garden. Everything is provided to allow guests to make all their favourite meals, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. A hallway leads to the bunk bedroom, a restful room with a beamed ceiling and cottage-style window, across the hall from which the chic and stylish bathroom is fully-tiled and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. The staircase which leads to the first floor is an interesting and unusual feature which has been salvaged from a ship and has a rope handrail. Once upstairs, guests will find the remaining a bedroom: a pretty twin room which has a chest of drawers and wardrobe.
Outside, the property benefits from a pleasant garden to the rear of the property which comprises a terraced patio with garden furniture and a BBQ, as well as a lawn. There is off-road parking for one car to the side of the property.
