The charming village of Netherbury is set within a picturesque valley backed by verdant rolling hills. Set out on foot to explore the many footpaths through the surrounding countryside, stopping off for a drink or hearty meal at a local pub on the way. Just 2 miles away is the small town of Beaminster which offers a good range of local amenities, or head 3.5 miles south to popular Bridport, which is known as the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. This vibrant town has a weekly market, a great selection of independent shops, coffee shops and restaurants, as well as a thriving selection of boutiques selling antiques and vintage curios, should you wish to seek out some treasures. Heading a mile further south from Bridport will bring you to the popular coastal resort of West Bay. The swathes of pebble beach offer spectacular views over Golden Cap and wonderful walks along the South West Coast Path. Boat trips also run from the working harbour around the coast to Lyme Regis. This pretty town is well worth a visit and is home to charming cobbled streets, ice-cream coloured houses and plenty of galleries to browse.

Just next door is a spacious lounge/diner, which has a TV/DVD and electric effect wood burner. Leading on from here is an attractive sunroom with seating that overlooks the courtyard garden. Heading back into the entrance hall you will find a flight of stairs rising to the first floor. There are three bedrooms to choose from, the first is a double with en-suite shower room and WC.
