House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
If you enjoy historical properties, you will love Hole House. The owners have purposely not updated certain areas of the property as this would increase the holiday letting price quite considerably, they want people to enjoy this property as it is – affordable!!! The fascinating Tudor residence with its wealth of original features is perfect for families or couples seeking a special venue. The house is furnished in keeping with its period, with all modern conveniences in the kitchen, plenty of cloakrooms and lots of space for just relaxing. The gardens are particularly delightful and well tended. Worth a special mention is the duck pond whose residents enjoy being fed by younger visitors, the woodlands for wildlife enthusiasts. There are level lawns, perfect for relaxing or sunbathing and there is even a (challenging) footpath walk to the village. A unique holiday will be experienced at Hole House, which is the Owner's pride and joy for this reason, guest numbers are strictly limited to eight.

The West Country region
The Dorset and East Devon Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, features many natural landmarks including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle door, and extends over 95 miles from Exmouth to Christchurch, offering a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the UK.
It is the only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in England, ranking the Jurassic Coast alongside the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef as one of the natural wonders of the world.
