The conversion of this old coach house has created accommodation of a high standard whilst retaining many original features. The Cottage was awarded a Visit Britain FOUR STAR, GOLD accreditation in recognition of the very high standards that it offers. Every effort has been made to provide the very best in quality from the very comfortable beds with the finest cotton linen through to equipment that wont let you down. Having stayed in many self catering cottages over the years, we know how annoying it is to have a blunt knives, non-stick pans that are anything but and beds that are so uncomfortable - you would rather sleep on the floor - you won't find any of that here. There is a small courtyard garden with Weber bbq and patio dining table/chairs with parasol. From the garden you enter the Conservatory with tiled floor, comfortable seats and space for coats & boots; down two steps into Kitchen/Dining Room with underfloor heating and Free View TV. There are 2 Bedrooms: a double with kingsize bed and ensuite: bath with shower over and a twin (can make a 6ft double) with ensuite shower wet-room. Upstairs: Light and spacious Sitting Room with oak floor, rugs, comfortable seating and footstool big enough to share. SKY+HD box (Entertainment Extra, MOVIES and Sport) TV, DVD and CD player/Radio and logburner. Full central heating with thermostatically controlled radiators and constant hot water.Village shop/Post Office for newspapers/bread and essentials is a 3 minute walk away.

The Dorset region

Dorset is a county of outstanding natural beauty and boasts a significant amount of magnificent scenery. There are rolling hills with picturesque villages and a coastline with fishing villages and sandy beaches that have been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO - one of only 4 naturally occuring sites in the United Kingdom. It is an area rich in fossils from the Jurassic period.

There are many ancient Iron Age hill forts ie. Maiden Castle (the largest pre-roman fortress in Britain), stone circles and earth barrows ie. The Five Marys (a five minute walk away!). The County is mainly rural and does not have many large towns other than Bournemouth and Poole. Small towns include the County town of Dorchester, Sherborne, the seaside town of Weymouth (venue for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Competition. Much of Dorset is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Lulworth Cove

The village of Winfrith Newburgh is truly central to so many attractions. The specatular Jurassic coastline can be explored via the South west coast path which can be joined only a couple of miles away at Lulworth Cove (famous for geological importance and its natural horseshoe shaped harbour) or Durdle Door (famous for its beautiful beach and natural Stone Arch). Clouds Hill (the rural retreat of Lawrence of Arabia) and Max Gate (home to Thomas Hardy) are on the outskirts of Dorchester. The Tank Museum (the world's best collection of tanks and live action displays) and Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre (setting for Channel 5's Monkey Life programme) are both within 5 miles.
