Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Situated along a country lane on the edge of the picturesque village of Upwey, Cobblestone House has been skilfully refurbished by its current owners to offer highly desirable, family accommodation.
Dating back to the 1500's, when it served as the Granary for the nearby Friary, Cobblestone House combines original features – the ancient timber structure and huge cruck beams are particularly impressive – with light, stylishly furnished living spaces, decorated in a subtle, Farrow and Ball palette.
Cobblestone House offers excellent facilities, including a state-of-the-art, 'Neptune' kitchen with dining area, a big sitting room with inglenook and a superb, double-height, master bedroom. An outbuilding provides a really useful, extra sitting/TV room/kids' den with single garage and bike storage below.

About this location
The Dorset region
The surrounding area has something for everyone; keen walkers and cyclists will find footpaths and suitable cycle routes on the doorstep, while for those keen on watersports, Weymouth, with its long sandy beach and marina incorporating the Olympic sailing centre, is just three miles away. A unique stretch of Dorset's Jurassic coastline is within easy driving distance - Durdle Door, Sandbanks, Studland Bay and Poole Harbour to the east and the Chesil Beach, the Fleet Lagoon, Abbotsbury Swannery and Sub-tropical Gardens to the west. The county town of Dorchester (Dinosaur Museum & multiplex cinema) is 3 miles.
Upwey itself is a charming village nestling beneath South Dorset chalk downland with mainline station to London (Waterloo), several pubs, a 13th century church, art gallery and the well-known Wishing Well tea rooms and water garden.
