The property

Poppy Cottage is a simply delightful abode settled into the town of Beaminster.

With close by amenities and welcoming interiors, this property is an ideal base for a family, friends, and their four-legged companions, looking for a getaway to Dorset.

Park off-road and be welcomed into this simply stunning, stone-built cottage, discovering a light and airy kitchen/diner with a good selection of amenities to cater to your culinary needs, as well as dining seating for hearty breakfasts.

The living/dining room is a pretty space with characterful wooden beams, dining seating, and the added ambience of a woodburning stove, encouraging guests to recline with a good book as they reflect on the day's adventures.

Freshen up in either of the two sleek shower rooms, before catching your rest in one of the four well-presented bedrooms, choosing between two doubles, a twin, and a single.

When the sun is shining, make the most of the enclosed garden by dining alfresco, or relax in the warmth of the conservatory.

Beaminster rests in the beautiful scenery of the Dorset National Landscape, offering a selection of eateries, pubs, a convenience store, and many close by walks and attractions.

Options include Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve, Mapperton House Gardens & Wildlands, Beaminster Museum, and Coney's Castle.

The town is also close to many walks through the East Devon National Landscape and the Blackdown Hills AONB, making this an ideal spot for hiking and birdwatching.

For a day at the seaside, head over to Lyme Regis, where there are many eateries, watersports, and stunning beaches where guests can hunt for fossils, as well as independent shops to be browsed at your leisure.

Charmouth is also well worth a visit, allowing guests to learn more about the local area at the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, before heading to the beach to fossil hunt.

There is simply so much to be explored with a stay at the beautiful Poppy Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
