Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Far from the madding crowds, set down its own private leafy driveway nestled in 8 acres of fields and woodland. The old cottage dates back to the early Victorian age and is full of charm and character. It has an open fire, oil fired central heating, and has a warm home from home feel. The cottage has a large 5' bed, and romantic eves with skylights to gaze upon the stars. A large deep bath with shower attachment is on the ground floor, with a small toilet/wash basin upstairs. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer and washing machine available.
There is a gravelled area in front of the cottage, with table/bench to sit an watch the pet sheep grazing in the paddock, or have your breakfast and watch the birds and wildlife.
Peace and tranquillity, situated on the edge of the picturesque villageof Langton Herring, just the place to unwind.
Walking distance to the famous Chesil beach, but only 3 miles from Weymouth and 7 miles from Dorchester.
The cottage is completely self contained with plenty of parking. Weekly rentals or short breaks in the winter, also bed and breakfast
Dogs are not allowed, but a very good kennels a short distance down the road caters for overnight pets.
Plenty of walks to take in the stunning views of Abbotsbury and surrounding areas along the coastal path. The Elm Tree public house is a short walk into the village, next door to the Norman church of St. Peter. The Fleet Lagoon famous for the Abbotsbury Swannery, and subtropical gardens is approximately 1 mile down a country bridleway.
Horse owners can bring their horses with them (price on request) and enjoy the many bridleways leading off the property.
The fresh smell of the sea, and the waves crashing on the beach (when the wind is in the right direction) add to the atmosphere of this unique little gem. You will want to come back here
