About the Owner
About The Owner
Owned by a family passionate about beautiful properties and stunning outdoor spaces.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999
Why The Owner chose Dorset
The property appealed as it had land and is remote. We still farm in Somerset and this was a good addition to the farming venture.
We prefer the hamstone colours locally to the blue liass stone of Somerset and have found ourselves in a very friendly and socially inclusive location.
Wonderful views of the sea a short walk away and typical Hardy country active with all country pursuits.
What makes this cottage unique
Plenty to occupy an active family from sport to culture, friendships and entertainment. Good access to amenities of all types and styles but retaining the benefits of remoteness. The region believes in good standards of quality and care.
Space is the one criterion we sought and what we have is more than sufficient with 15 acres to walk dogs etc.
