Pleasant Spot is a remote 4-bed holiday cottage in a beautiful village ideally placed for easy access to Dorchester and the Jurassic Coast. It’s the perfect spot for a relaxed family holiday. It is perfect for a peaceful retreat located on the southern edges of the beautiful Blackmore Vale where many walking and cycling routes can be found leading from the door allowing you to take in the picturesque landscape that this area is renowned for.
The house is situated just outside the village overlooking the Blackmore Vale meadows and lush landscapes, located in its private land on a gentle hillside with great views. The property is accessed via a secure yard shared but separate from our stables where you will hear the tiptoeing of horses coming in for their evening meal. There are two farm cats, Middy and Shumba; they live in the feed barn in the yard but are not keen on dogs.
From the yard parking area next to the cottage, you enter a fenced patio that leads to the main cottage entrance door and lobby area. The original part of the cottage is believed to date from the late 1700s. Although extended in recent time, the calming colours, character, and charm of this traditional cottage is sure to make you feel right at home, with low ceilings and original beams be admired throughout.
The older part of the house has a cosy, snug study/ lounge with Smart TV and open fireplace; this leads up a steep staircase to two bedrooms, double and a single with fabulous views. On the ground floor, you will find a WC and Bath.
Just off of the entrance lobby is a large stunning lounge with a Smart TV and an abundance of character features, including a large open fireplace and two sets of double doors which open onto the south-facing patio area.
There is a large open and spacious country kitchen; this delightful room is an inviting space for the whole family to enjoy and is well-equipped with an AGA electric oven with gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.
A staircase from the kitchen leads you to the landing on the first floor, where you will find a charming king-size bedroom with a beautiful en suite bathroom where you can take a soak in the freestanding slipper bath, with a separate shower and WC. Adjacent to a further double bedroom furnished with care and overlooking the Blackmore vale meadows.
You will find a country garden with a table and chairs heading outside the kitchen. It’s the perfect space to enjoy a meal or perhaps drinks in the evening. A small orchard and a summer house are leading on from here, sure to keep all the family entertained, with a TV and pool table. Alternatively, get fit in the gym and relax in secret spots with a beer or gin and tonic looking over the meadows.
The property is situated in its land, but we advise that no dogs can run free on this land due to the horses and cannot take any responsibility.
This is a holiday cottage, so you have access to all of the house, including a large enclosed garden, ideal for children and dogs. The adjacent fields will have horses in, so it is recommended that you keep your dogs on a lead.
