The Courtyard lies within the grounds of Clyffe Manor House in the village of Tincleton. Whilst originally built in the 1840s it cleverly combines period features with modern day living to ensure your holiday is both one of relaxation and comfort. French doors lead directly onto a private patio and extensive shared gardens beyond with woodland walks starting just two minutes from the front door. The cottage is in the heart of West Dorset and is, therefore, in the ideal location to explore this historic and beautiful county. Alternatively, with The Courtyard's 1½ feet thick walls and clearview wood burner, you can shield yourself from the elements and curl up on the over-sized sofa with a good book. There literally is something for everyone.
