This pretty country cottage has recently been completely refurbished to provide a delightful holiday cottage in a peaceful rural setting. Beamed ceilings, flagstone floors and a feature inglenook fireplace inset with a wood burning stove (available from January 2016) add to the charm and character of this former farmworkers cottage. A newly fitted and well-equipped kitchen includes a large picture window with lovely views over the surrounding fields. There are two double bedrooms upstairs, both with pleasant views. The larger of the two bedrooms includes access to a 3ft folding bed to allow some flexibility in terms of sleeping arrangements for up to four guests (please request when booking if required). The attractive family shower room features an interesting Moroccan sink. There is a sunny, mature garden at the front of the cottage, and guests are also welcome to use a field, just opposite the cottage, for picnics. Occasionally the owners are able to offer fresh, seasonal produce from their garden to purchase.
Located along a farm track in the small West Dorset hamlet of Waytown, about 5 miles from the coastal fishing harbour of West Bay and just a 10 minute walk from the original River Cottage where Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall`s TV career was first launched. The cottage is set in a small terrace of four former farm cottages in exceptionally beautiful and peaceful countryside. On a clear night the lack of light pollution makes it the perfect spot for star-gazing. The hamlet has a traditional country pub (about a 5 minute walk by footpath from the cottage) and is a haven for walkers with a network of footpaths covering the surrounding countryside. It`s just a short drive to the sea and within easy reach of the West Dorset and East Devon coastline, famous for its Jurassic fossils. There are many quiet villages to be discovered in the surrounding countryside and the bustling West Dorset market town of Bridport with its shops and cafes is just a short drive away.
