Whispering Pines is a delightful cottage set in the tranquil Tamarisk Wayside Gardens nestled close to two other holiday cottages, with each offering their own private garden space.
Surrounded by stunning countryside, and with panoramic sea views of the Jurassic Coast, it is an ideal base for exploring all that West Dorset has to offer.
It is a stone cottage bungalow with the accommodation laid out on one level.
There is an open planned living room with kitchen, dining and sitting areas.
The bedrooms are comfortable and homely and perfect for peaceful sleeping in this tranquil location.
From the sitting room, guests can open the patio doors and enjoy the grassed lawn area where you can relax, share a picnic or play some games with the family.
The property happily welcomes two well-behaved dogs.
In chilly weather the cottage is perfect for snuggling up in the lounge, in front of the log burner whilst you read a book or enjoy a warming hot chocolate.
The setting of the cottage is delightful, with pretty gardens overlooking the South West coast and the surrounding West Bexington countryside.
The stunning landscape will tempt you to explore further for sure, and the World Heritage coastline will always beckon visitors.
Only a few minutes’ drive away is the market town of Bridport (6 miles) with its array of quaint shops and lovely streets, and with a popular market offering local fresh produce and interesting stalls.
When venturing further on foot, or by bike or car, you will reach beautiful village of West Bay with its cute harbour and stunning cliffs.
A short drive further you will reach the tallest point on the South coast – Golden cap, which sits tall and proud and offers outstanding views for miles around.
Lyme Regis and Charmouth are both nearby and very much a fossil hunters paradise.
The coastal town of Weymouth has an award-winning sandy beach and is an hour’s drive away, with many attractions for adults and children alike.
Nothe Fort and Gardens offer fantastic views of the rugged Isle of Portland and also the iconic Lulworth cove, and a stroll down to the harbour will find a perfect location for crabbing and watching the boats sail by.
Whispering Pines is cute and full of charm, and ideal for families and friends looking for a quiet haven.

About the location
Abbotsbury 3 miles; Bridport 6 miles.
Lying next to the sea and Chesil Beach, equidistant between Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury, is the small village of West Bexington. This is a stunning area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as an area of Special Scientific Interest - pebbled Chesil Beach, which extends for 14 miles, from Burton Bradstock to the Portland peninsula, is part of the Jurassic Coast and now a World Heritage Site. Fishermen and walkers are well provided for, as a great variety of fish can be caught at any time of year, and the South West Coastal Path runs right alongside the beach. Only confident swimmers should attept to swim here, but Weymouth, offering lovely, gently shelving sands, is only a short drive away. There's lots to see and do within easy reach of the village. No journey to this area would be complete without a visit to picturesque Abbotsbury, 3 miles, with its Swannery, Tithe Barn and Sub Tropical Gardens, with Dorchester, Bridport, and Lyme Regis all within easy reach.
