Set in an enviable location on the Isle of Purbeck in the rural Dorset hamlet of Acton, this characterful property makes an ideal base for family holidays exploring all that the coast and countryside has to offer
This 19th century Purbeck stone cottage makes a wonderful base for exploring the Purbeck Hills. Set in a charming Dorset hamlet accessed via an unmade road, this cosy and welcoming retreat offers relaxing accommodation for eight guests. An ideal holiday home for a large family or a group of friends, the property enjoys fantastic panoramic countryside views.
The light and refreshing lounge is a lovely space to relax in at the end of the day, with a wood burner and TV/DVD so you can snuggle up and watch a favourite movie. A step leads up into the elegant dining room which is a perfect spot for a family meal which you can prepare in the stylish kitchen. There's also a snug with TV for anyone needing to get away from the crowd. A steep staircase leads to the first floor which features a bright twin room and an inviting double bedroom. Steep, narrow cottage-style stairs lead to the second floor with two cosy bedrooms set into the eaves: a charming nautical-themed twin, and a relaxing king-size room with en-suite shower room. The generous garden is enclosed by a low stone wall (care should be taken with children and pets) and features a large lawn with mature shrubs and outdoor furniture so you can sit back and admire the stunning views. Please note, the property does have some changes of level and restricted head-height and is adjacent to the owner's home with privacy assured.
