Description from owner


Quintessentially English thatched cottage in the heart of Purbecks and Thomas Hardy country set in a street so unspoilt it is used in period dramas.. 10 minutes from the Jurassic Coast and 10 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of Studland bay & Swanage. Romantic, cosy and with views of the ancient Castle the cottage is steeped in history & even features in the AA guide. Decorated in a rustic style, this Cottage combines style & comfort. Centrally heated & well appointed, the cottage is the perfect hideaway with a lovely garden (including patio seating area). A short walk from 4 pubs, tearooms and the Village shop yet tranquil and private. Stunning walks and the Purbeck way are literally on the doorstep.
The second bedroom is arranged with two single beds. Ideal for children but can be used by adults but recommend you view the pictures to see the bed arrangement.

“Lovely cottage in perfect location”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2017

Just returned from a week in Hill View Cottage. Can't fault it. Cosy and very comfortable. Took our terrier with us and he loved the dog proof garden! The cottage is perfectly located in the village and the ideal base for a week. We didn't need to drive far at all to find lots of places to visit and paths to walk. The parking space in nearby car park was great too. Thank you!!
