A thatched cottage with contemporary interiors, this home from home is just right for those looking to indulge in a solo break or romantic getaway.
As pretty as a picture, this two-person, one-dog thatched cottage is the perfect base for well-deserved solo breaks and romantic escapes. Tucked away in the village of Wool just across the road from the Dorset Flapjack Company (yes, honestly) and less than 0.5 miles from a handful of dog-friendly eateries, you can enjoy comfort and convenience in abundance. Get to know the area and branch out into the countryside and beyond to the coast, enjoying a one-off holiday that’ll soon become a yearly tradition!
Make a furrytale entrance and step over the little wooden bridge that traverses a shallow stream and along the shared garden pathway. Having dusted off paws and pulled off boots in the flagstone hallway, the property is all yours to explore. To kick back after a long journey or day on your feet, the comfortable lounge/diner will tempt you in with cosy seating, warming coal-effect electric fire and a TV/DVD for easy entertainment. Of course, your stomachs may have other thoughts, in which case the well-equipped kitchen will have all the answers. Rustle up some plates of fodder, slipping your happy hound a treat or two, and plate up around the dining table or around the private rear garden’s outdoor table for al fresco feasts. Upstairs, a bathroom with bath and overhead shower and a bedroom (with slightly reduced head height in the eaves) await.
Situated in a picturesque, community-spirited village, you will enjoy wandering around the lanes in the morning saying hello to new friends. While it could be easy to stay nearby, you should definitely make a trip to the iconic Lulworth Cove (5 miles) and Durdle Door (5.5 miles). For energetic canine chums, the South West Coast Path will be a dream, as will a walk around Lulworth Castle’s dog-friendly grounds (5 miles).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
