  • “A few things about East Cottage.”

    * The downstairs shower does not drain and needs attention * The washing machine does not drain on a coloured wash and needs attention * There was no detergent for the washing machine, only 2 dishwasher tablets and no general cleaning materials. Given the cost of the property this is poor. At least guests should be informed so they can come prepared * No information was provided about where clean towels/sheets were to be accessed for second week, thus requiring a phone call

The property

Weymouth 5 miles.

This pretty local stone, semi-detached cottage is set in the coastal village of Langton Herring, Dorset.

It's located just five miles from the seaside town of Weymouth and boasts stunning views across the village, country fields and over to Chesil Beach, giving the impression of a truly magical location.

With spacious ground-floor accommodation, including two ground-floor bedrooms, you really will find this a house that suits all members of the family.

Enter through the front door and you will find a welcoming hallway, and from there a large open-plan sitting and dining area with a woodburning stove, perfect for relaxing and spending time together after a day’s exploring in Dorset.

Step up through double doors into the conservatory where you will find pretty views over the delightful cottage garden, and additional doors to the garden.

The kitchen has all the appliances you need to cook up a tasty meal for the whole family.

The two ground-floor bedrooms can be accessed via the conservatory, where you will find a comfortable twin to the front and a well-presented double to the rear with a TV, both with en-suite shower rooms, perfect for relaxing and unwinding.

Upstairs, you will find a comfortable double with great views over the countryside, and a large family room with bunk beds and a single bed, with gorgeous views over the rear garden and beyond.

The large family bathroom is perfect for washing away sandy days at the beach and relaxing.

Before retiring for the day, why not sit out in the attractive cottage garden with a lovely glass of wine, a nice book and relax in the evening sun.

East Cottage is ideally located for country walks and adventures on the South West Coast Path, or observing all the wildlife on the local nature reserve, Langton Herring is a rural idyll.

Just 5 miles along the stunning coast road, you will find a picture-postcard village of Abbotsbury, with its main street full of picturesque cottages, tea rooms and local artist's shops, a joy to explore.

You will also find the famous Swannery, home to 600 mute swans and the site of an 11th-century monastery.

East Cottage is perfectly located for exploring the Jurassic Coast and surrounding hills, and is ideal for a group of friends or a large family to holiday together near the coast of Dorset.
