The Details...

The Cider House is a perfect bolthole for couples or families looking for a memorable rural getaway. Set on a 14 acre farm, next to the owners' Grade 2 listed thatched farmhouse, there is plenty of gorgeous countryside to explore. Grab one of the OS maps provided and head out on walks straight from the door! Or, for the less active, grab a book and relax in front of the feature wood burning stove. The open plan layout is a great social space - and there’s plenty to keep you entertained, from board games, to a well stocked DVD collection.

Inside, natural wood sits effortlessly alongside moody dark grey paintwork and bright pops of colour - it’s a masterclass in chic simplicity. The kitchen, with its double Belfast sink, is beautifully finished. The owners obviously take pride in the finer details, taking extra effort to supply all the extras that make this kitchen a total joy to cook in. Good pans, sharp knives, weighing scales - there’s even a pestle and mortar.

The contemporary feel continues into the bedrooms with gorgeous linens and sumptuously comfortable mattresses. The mezzanine bedroom, above the living space, can be set up as two singles or as a super-king size bed, so there’s plenty of space to laze around in.

The master bedroom leads through into a sleek family bathroom. Enjoy a long soak in the large flat-bottomed bath and indulge in The Faith in Nature toiletries - a lovely extra touch.

Outside there is all you need for a relaxing summer’s evening, with a fabulous BBQ area and plenty of seating - it might be a good time to open a bottle of something fizzy.

And this cottage is not only super stylish, it’s also earned environmental points too. Wherever possible, the conscientious owners have repurposed and reused existing materials throughout the renovation. It’s even got a wood pellet boiler.

There’s plenty to do in the local area, with the bustling market town of Bridport just down the road. A vibrant, artistic hub with some great eateries (not to mention a fantastic local brewery!). And with easy access to the Jurassic Coast you can walk, swim or search for fossils to your heart’s content!
