Surrounded by rolling countryside, the picturesque village of Symondsbury is the ideal base for days spent enjoying long walks or riding. The village itself has a vibrant centre, complete with pub, galleries and tea rooms and being situated near to the market town of Bridport, there is plenty to do here. Bridport has a varied selection of shops selling both essential supplies and vintage treasures, or head on to West Bay where you can watch the boats moving about the harbour or let off some steam on the beach. With good road links nearby, you can easily explore the many attractions lining the Jurassic Coast and admire the stunning scenery as you travel. A shared driveway leads to this detached cottage.
The main entrance can be found to the front of the property, accessed via a sloping gravel path that winds through the garden. Once inside you are met with an entrance hall giving access to the utility room, complete with washing machine, tumble dryer and WC, before heading into the inviting lounge. Full of character features, this welcoming room has an inglenook with a wood burner and TV for those chilly winter evenings in. Next, you will come to the charming country style kitchen/diner. This well-equipped space has an electric range style oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. When the day is done, take the winding stairs from the entrance hall to the first floor where you can choose from the four lovely bedrooms: a super king-size zip and link (which can be arranged as a twin on request), two king-size bedrooms (one with a TV,) and a single bedroom. Completing this floor is the stylish bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC, and a separate shower room.
Heading outside brings you into the pretty garden which sits mostly to the front and is staged across multiple levels. Immediately outside of the kitchen area, you will find a wonderful decked area with stunning views and the chance of spotting some of the resident wildlife, including woodpeckers.
