    “It's interesting that the photos don't show the property as it actually is, balconies are railed and only access to ground is from the middle pod whereas access to the ground from the bedrooms (especially the hot tub end) would have been desirable.”

    Definitely a soap/shower gel/ shampoo holder is required in the bathrooms. Whilst the bath towels were lovely for size there wasn't one provided for the toilet or the kitchen - if towels are provided then they shoud be provided for all locations in the property.

Whilst the above is negative we all enjoyed ourselves and found the property spacious and comfortable. The car parking surface is not good for traction.

The property

An absolutely stunning, unique and award-winning contemporary designed oak and glass property, set on an elevated site overlooking the quaint main street, with views towards the conservation area of the small, rural West Dorset town of Beaminster.

This eco-friendly contemporary property has been imaginatively created around five ancient oak trees, featuring three English oak and glass fronted pods which are interconnected by glass walkways, with the oak trees growing through the attractive decked terraces!

Inside, the spacious, impressive and contemporary open plan social space provides an outstanding place for relaxing, dining and cooking, having a bespoke kitchen with granite worktops and island featuring an array of integrated appliances, and equipped with everything you need to conjure up exceptional cuisine during your stay, whilst on sunny days open up the bi-fold doors, sit out, and enjoy refreshments on the oak decked terrace.

When bedtime comes around, there is no need to argue about who gets the master room, as all four of the bright bedrooms conveniently boast en-suite facilities.

You are in for a treat outside this fantastic property, as you can enjoy the use of your own private hot tub, where you can unwind in the bubbles after a hectic day out.

The characterful town centre, full of mellow ham-stone cottages, is just a short stroll, where you can experience local hospitality in one of the friendly pubs and shops.

For an interesting day out, take the short drive to the nearby town of Bridport, where the weekly markets provides a selection of stalls selling everything from home-produced food to antiques, or venture a little further to the picturesque harbour at West Bay, used as the setting for TV's Broadchurch drama, where you can take a fishing trip, or simply just take in the magnificent views across Lyme Bay, whilst treating yourself to the local fish and chips.

This sensational property is sure to give you the most amazing, unforgettable all-year-round holiday experience, ensuring that you’ll be back.
