The separate living room is spacious and has double doors which can be opened or closed leading to the kitchen diner. From the kitchen you can go out into the secure lawned garden where we have a hot tub. There is a wonderful local pub in the village that many of our guests who have dined there have raved about and many more within easy reach; the next village, a mile away has a general shop and post office, a petrol station and garage and even a tennis court to rent. Most guests arrange a supermarket delivery but there are plenty of supermarkets within easy driving distance. The nearest beach with a cafe is 5 miles away, and Dorchester (4 miles away) is the county town with supermarkets, shopping, cinemas and a number of restaurants. Weymouth (7 miles away) is a large tourist resort with beaches and water sports available There is a Wood burning stove. Large garden. Changeover day Saturday. Flat wall-mounted TV with Freeview. Broadband and phone. Large garden. If you or your group would enjoy a spa treatment in the comfort of the cottage, My Personal Sanctuary offer a wide range of luxury Spa treatments for all the family to enjoy; they will bring everything they need and set up in the cottage.
