Leightir cottage is peacefully situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty located in the quiet hamlet of Fishpond, a short drive inland from the pretty and unspoilt Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis. The cottage provides comfortable holiday accommodation for families or couples looking for a rural location close to the coast. The cottage and garden enjoy wonderful far-reaching views across the Marshwood Vale towards the sea. The pretty garden, with a babbling stream running through it, enjoys sun throughout the day. An open fireplace in the lounge also makes this cottage the perfect choice for a cosy out-of-season break. This property will comfortably accommodate up to five guests in three bedrooms, one of which can be made up as a twin or double room to allow for maximum flexibility.
Please note: As the garden features 2 streams young children will need to be supervised when playing outside.
The countryside surrounding the cottage is a haven for walkers with National Trust land at Lambert's Castle, Coney Castle and ancient Charmouth woods very close by. The owners provide lots of information in the cottage about local walks and amenities like horse riding in the immediate area. Those wishing to explore the area by car, will find that this property makes an excellent base from which to tour the whole of the Jurassic coast, running from West Dorset to East Devon. Leightir is surrounded by National Trust farmland and is notable for its atmosphere of peace & tranquillity.
