Description from owner

Description

The Courtyard lies within the grounds of Clyffe Manor House in the village of Tincleton. Whilst originally built in the 1840s it cleverly combines period features with modern day living to ensure your holiday is both one of relaxation and comfort. French doors lead directly onto a private patio and extensive shared gardens beyond with woodland walks starting just two minutes from the front door. The cottage is in the heart of West Dorset and is, therefore, in the ideal location to explore this historic and beautiful county. Alternatively, with The Courtyard's 1½ feet thick walls and clearview wood burner, you can shield yourself from the elements and curl up on the over-sized sofa with a good book. There literally is something for everyone.

Further details

A welcome pack is provided on arrival.

Further details indoors

Facilities include a luxurious kitchen with slate floors, solid beech cabinets and granite surfaces with a good selection of crockery,

“Comfy in the Courtyard”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2012

Courtyard Cottage was a good rental from the start. We stayed there during the Easter holidays - myself, my partner, and two of our children: 15, and 7 years old. Correspondence with Hattie, the owner, via email, was always very quick, and any queries that I had before out visit were speedily answered. Courtyard Cottage is located in the heart of Dorset. It is situated in a group of buildings attached to a large manor house. The main building has been lots of things in its history, including a school, and I would imagine that these smaller dwellings attached to it were probably servants quarters. Courtyard Cottage overlooks a small courtyard (surprise!), which is surrounded by about 8 other cottages, some lets, some residential. Once inside, the cottage was traditional but with all the mod cons that you could wish for, including wifi, which meant a happy teen! It was also spotlessly clean. There is a well equipped kitchen, and lovely lounge diner, a downstairs bathroom, and two well sized bedroom upstairs. The lounge has patio doors that open onto the most marvellous shared garden. Don't be put off by the shared aspect. You have your own little patio, then there is a formal section, then an long expanse of lawn and trees, with a fantastic view at the bottom onto farmland. Big enough for a good game of cricket! During our stay we didn't see anyone else in the grade, so it felt like all ours! The cottage is ideally situated for exploring Dorset. We had a lovely week at the Courtyard and would happily return again.

“Wonderful!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2012

Our second stay at the Courtyard, myself, husband and young daughter. It is a very special place-several times over our two week stay, we just spent the day in the magical garden, playing games and reading and picnicking. The location is amazing, yet only a few minutes drive from Dorcester, and a short hop from the Isle of Purbeck and the NT beach at Studland Bay. It is very well equipped and exceedingly comfortable. A real gem! *i am disabled with mobility problems. There are stairs to the bedrooms, with the bathroom on the ground floor. I found the stairs easier to manage than my stairs at home, as they are relatively shallow, but it depends on the nature of the individual's disability, I suppose.
