Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The Victorian farmhouse at Eastwater Farm lies in a hidden valley beneath Eggardon Hill (827 feet), a short walk from the small, unspoilt village of Powerstock, with its stone cottages and Norman church.
Eastwater Farmhouse stands on its own surrounded by farmland on which the owners' beef and dairy cattle graze. It affords complete privacy to its visitors yet it is only a short stroll to the village pub. Refurbished to a good standard, it retains some of its original character and provides a very comfortable, welcoming base from which to explore this beautiful area.

The Dorset region
Not surprisingly this part of south west Dorset is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; the surrounding countryside with its myriad of narrow country lanes, has steep sided valleys and offers far-reaching views from the hill tops to a beautiful stretch of the West Dorset World Heritage "Jurassic" coastline. There is a good sandy beach at Charmouth (10 miles) while Lyme Regis has rockpools to delight children and has long been popular with fossil collectors. West Bay (5 miles) is good for sea fishing off the pier and beach. There are numerous footpaths - inland & coastal - and several iron age forts (including Maiden Castle) to explore. For shopping, Bridport is 4 miles away and the county town of Dorchester is about 10 miles.

"Beautiful location and quaint home, but lacking amenities"
The home is beautiful and the area is gorgeous. We booked our stay based on the photos we saw online. Beyond that, I wish I could say it was worth what we paid. It wasn't. Here are the reason… More
Thank you for your comments about Eastwater Farmhouse. We're glad you liked the location and the house itself.
This property is not advertised as providing WiFi as part of the facilities, which are listed in the property specification on our website. Not all properties offer WiFi so it is unreasonable to assume that this would automatically be available. If this was important you could have carried out a search for cottages providing WiFi on our website or called us to check this before booking. The 'phone is clearly advertised as being available for incoming calls only.
As regards towels, a bath and hand towel are provided for each guest. A few owners provide flannels but we find that most guests prefer to take their own.
We are sorry you had difficulty in contacting the owner. She lives in the village and although she is often out working on her farm, she is normally quick to respond to messages. We apologise for any inconvenience in this respect.
