About the property

Cottage in Chedington, Nr. Beaminster, West Dorset, England

Court Cottage is an attractive, detached stone house surrounded by a lovely, well developed garden in the secluded, picturesque (dog friendly) small village of Chedington, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cottage, tastefully restored into a convenient, comfortable, modern dwelling, overlooks a handsome neo-Gothic style stately home which, with its turrets & bell-tower, imparts a romantic atmosphere to the village, beyond which stretch beautiful views of the rolling Dorset countryside. Chedington nestles beside a dramatic, National Trust-protected ridge of beech trees which in spring is carpeted with bluebells. In addition to numerous foot & bridle paths in surrounding areas, the cottage is well situated to cater to a range of interests - 20 minutes from Dorset's World Heritage Jurassic coast; 10 minutes from Beaminster's excellent restaurants & shops & a 3 minute walk up the lane to the historic, popular Winyards Gap pub which boasts a much respected kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a wonderful week in Court Cottage. It feels more like a home than a holiday rental. The cottage is comfortable and homely, well equipped and the gardens are gorgeous.
