Tucked away at the end of a private lane, you can look forward to idyllic countryside views, an indulgent hot tub and a variety of walking, cycling and horse riding trails from the doorstep. The picturesque village of Symondsbury with its friendly local pub is just a mile and half away and the golden sand of the Jurassic Coast is a three-mile drive. Bridport, there is a larger selection of shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a lively arts scene and vintage and farmers markets. The nearby fishing village of West Bay is also only three miles away with its pretty harbour and beach.

Enter into the light and bright property, offering a clean and crisp feel throughout. On chilly winter evenings light the wood burner in the lounge, sink into the sofa in front of its warm glow and watch the sunset over the rolling countryside through the large bay window. This is the perfect spot to cosy up with a movie on the TV, while the kids entertain themselves with the TV and games in the snug. The well-equipped kitchen with Range oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, is just the place to rustle up a hearty supper for all the family, which can be laid out for all to enjoy on the large table in the dining room as the wood burner crackles in the background. There are three bedrooms in the main property, two super king-size zip and links (which can be made into a twin on request), one with en suite shower and WC and a double bedroom. There is a family bathroom completing this property with a bath, shower and WC.

Heading outside there is a separate log cabin in the garden, providing an extra super king-size zip and link bedroom (which can be made into a twin on request) and an en suite shower and WC. There is a comfortable lounge area with a TV and has its own veranda and outside seating area to make the most of the views and local wildlife. The garden for the property and lodge has raised decking area that is wonderfully secluded and enjoy glorious vistas as far as the eye can see over the surrounding fields and woodland. The bubbling hot tub is a welcome spot to make a toast as the sun sets, while the BBQ sizzles and the younger members of the party have fun on the trampoline. There is ample off-road parking available at the property.
