Originally part of the Trigon Estate, this bright, spacious and inviting holiday home dates back to the 19th century and has been lovingly updated to provide cosy and comfortable accommodation for a family or small group of friends. With ample space for up to six guests and set on the outskirts of Wareham (3.5 miles), this is a lovely base for exploring the Purbeck Hills, Jurassic Coast and Dorset's wonderful sandy beaches.

The cottage is accessed via an unmade track and gravel driveway, with a step leading into the house. The lounge extends the length of the building and is a wonderful space for relaxation. You can unwind in front of the warming wood burner and catch up with a good book or movie. There's also a cosy snug providing space for children to play. The stylish kitchen/diner is well-equipped and is perfect for preparing and sharing your favourite meals. There are three charmingly decorated first-floor bedrooms: one king-size, a double and a twin room with a cot. The south-facing garden has a large lawn – perfect for ball games – as well as outdoor furniture so you can enjoy a BBQ or drinks. Part of the garden is wild, with the occasional stinging nettle, and the garden is not enclosed. The cottage is set within a plot of half an acre overlooking the forest, with chances to glimpse deer, foxes and badgers.

Situated on the fringes of Wareham Forest, there are numerous walking and cycling routes to discover nearby. The historic walled town of Wareham (4.5 miles) has some excellent pubs and restaurants, and you can hire boats and kayaks to explore the river. Local attractions include the Tank Museum (10 miles), Monkey World (8.5 miles), the picturesque village of Corfe Castle (8 miles) and the Victorian seaside town of Swanage (13.5 miles).

This property is beautiful inside and out. The garden was a huge hit with the kids and dog. The rooms are a lovely size, the beds were nice and comfy. It was so quiet at nighttime, and peaceful during the day. Everything you need is in this house from bed guards to stair gates. Its a fantastic location, most places are around 15-30 minutes away. YoRead moreu wouldn't be disappointed if you stayed here. We will definitely come back in the future. One of the best holidays we have ever had. Hide

We had a fabulous week at East Cottage. The location was excellent and lots nearby to do. The cottage had everything we needed. The 3 pre schoolers in our party loved the toys inside and outside the house and the garden. We would highly recommend it. Really quiet location and saw several deer and a buzzard whilst there.

Lovely secluded house that is great for dogs and kids a like, especially we would say under 5s with the amenities the owners provide. Great base to explore Dorset from, with lots of beach and forest walks in short and day trip distance from the house. All the facilities you could wish for to have a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Lovely setting and cottage very comfortable. Good size bedrooms. Downstairs shower too small and not suitable for tall people. Very rural with fantastic wildlife. Garden fencing almost non existent so not suitable for dogs that like to wander.

Loved the cottage..for wildlife enthusiasts it was perfect...the garden and surrounding fields and woods were full of butterflies, birds and animals. Great area too; Wareham is a hidden gem and none of the Dorset highlights is too far away. The cottage was decorated in a way that we all felt comfortable with...felt we could really relax and our litRead moretle dog was in his element. Hide

We spent a very pleasant week at East Cottage, although it is a little more remote than we expected. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Our young puppy needed to be kept on a lead as the garden is open to the adjacent woods and fields. We were fortunate to have good weather and so spent time making good use of the garden.

And relax! Fantastic clean, light and comfortable cottage in the most amazing location. No noise or light pollution and lots of nature - take your binoculars! Great location for visiting all of east Dorset. Had some wonderful walks in nearby Wareham and Puddletown Forests with the dogs and also explored the coast which is gorgeous. Lots of restauraRead morent choices in Wareham. The Italian Kitchen was outstanding and would also recommend the Salt Pig. Hopefully well be back soon. Hide
