Surrounded by fields of cows and sheep, this charming cottage has been tastefully decorated inside to compliment its many original features.
This pretty thatched cottage is beautifully situated on a 400 acre farm in rolling Purbeck countryside. The farm is home to cows, sheep, free range chickens and ducks on the duck pond. The cottage enjoys a delightful location, well away from busy roads and surrounded by gardens and fields. This is a wonderful walking and cycling area and visitors are welcome to explore the farm and join footpaths leading to the nearby River Frome. Purbeck is renowned for its Jurassic coastline and dramatic coastal path. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are only ten minutes drive away. At Lulworth swimming, fishing trips, diving, rib rides and the Fossil Forest can be enjoyed and there is an area of coastal path extending westwards to Weymouth and to Studland in the east. The Saxon town of Wareham is within a ten-minute drive and here, there are a variety of shops, and visitors can enjoy boating on the river. The sandy beaches of Studland and Swanage are within a 20-minute drive. Studland offers miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and Swanage has the facilities of a seaside resort including boating, fishing, diving, amusements and the added attraction of Swanage Steam Railway.
