About Philip Morgan

The property is owned by Phil and Jackie. Jackie is employed full time by a charity in Bournemouth so the day to day running of both properties is done by Phil.

Phil was a Policeman in London and Dorset retiring in 2003.

They purchased the property in 2015 having lived most of their lives in Poole and Christchurch as they wanted to move to a more rural location.

Phil will be around a lot of the time to deal with any queries you may have but will be unobtrusive and has instructions to leave you alone as he does love to talk.

Philip Morgan purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Philip Morgan chose Purbeck

Phil and Jackie purchased this property in 2015. They first looked over the property in the summer of 2014 and fell in love with it at first sight. The gardens are a delight to behold.

They both love Dorset and although well travelled they consider this area one of the most beautiful in the country. The Dorset countryside and coastline must be one of the best in England.

The property to let is joined to the owners property but has its own private access and driveway.

The previous owners use to let the property on Owners Direct and after careful consideration Phil and Jackie have decided to do the same.

Although very rural with its peace and quiet it is only a short drive to the towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Weymouth and there vibrant communities.

What makes this bungalow unique

Lilac Lea is a very comfortable large one bedroomed property. Situated in a rural area but just a short distance from the village of Bere Regis with the Wareham forest on its doorstep and the Purbeck Hills and South West Costal Path just a short drive away.

Deer are often seen in the fields opposite the property and birdlife is abundant.

2015 is the first year that a pair of House Martins have built their nest in the apex roof of Lilac lea. The local Robins will feed out of your hands when they get used to you.

A beach hut at Middle Beach, Studland is also available for your use during your stay at no extra cost.

Excellent bungalow, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Warm cosy and welcoming bungalow. Large variety of books, dvd's and information leaflets on area's of interest and attractions. Couldn't fault anything home from home thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Excellent location to explore Dorset. Really nice touch was the fresh items and milk left in the fridge to make a lovely cooked breakfast.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a very nice 10 day stay in this well equipped and nicely kept cottage. Very welcoming owner, very nice to find breakfast in the fridge, a nice touch. The owner was always available if we had any questions. So nice to find such a comfortable place to stay at a very reasonable price, great for visiting all the attractions in the area. We hope to stay again when we visit from Canada, would recommend this cottage in a nice peaceful area to anybody who would like to walk the country side or visit the Jurassic coast line.
