The Details...

Kick back at this charming cottage in the heart of the Dorset countryside, with the seaside, village life and the Jurassic coast all on your doorstep.

The outstanding feature of this holiday cottage is its location. It sits in the middle of 75 acres of stunning private conservation land that you are free to explore. The land is made up of traditional wildflower meadows, streams, wildlife ponds and areas of woodland. Its inhabited with plentiful and diverse wildlife including the rarest bat in the UK. Recognised as an important bird migration and breeding area, swallows romance the fields in summer, buzzards circle above and as night falls the distinctive call of tawny owls is heard.

?Inside the cottage, you'll find a cosy living room (with the resident guinea fowl often peering in through the window!), with a log burner and chopped wood ready to go. There is free Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player with selection of films for all ages, plus plenty of board games. The kitchen is fully equipped, and boasts an oil-fired AGA for proper country living, and the dining area offers views across the fields and to the sea beyond. There is also access to a washing machine and a freezer. Upstairs, you'll find a spacious room with a double bed, and a second bedroom with comfortable, twin beds and fantastic views down to the sea. The bathroom has a shower cubicle, heated towel rail, washbasin and toilet and comes with complimentary White Company toiletries.

Everything you need to stay with a baby, including a babysitter, can be brought to the cottage via prior arrangement.??Outside you'll find a peaceful garden area with picnic table and chairs, surrounded by rambling roses, wisteria and honeysuckle that has beautiful views over the fields and to the sea beyond. In summer pick figs from the tree to enjoy with your wine. Children will love the pygmy goats and are given the opportunity to take over feeding them for the week as well as collecting eggs from the beautiful rainbow flock of chickens. There is a stream challenge to take on, tyre swing and fallen tree climbing frame to explore as well as the wildlife ponds, and bluebell wood, when in season. In the evening why not take an outdoor adventure with the bats and owls, or book one of the campfire experiences on offer?

?The area has so much to do, from the historic harbour town of Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb and fossil-packed beaches and cliffs, to Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's famous River Cottage, which is only a 10 minute drive away.
