The property

Settled in the charming small village of Puncknowle, lying not far from the shores of the Dorset coast, is this incredible 300-year-old cottage, Burwell Cottage, complete with a picture-perfect thatched roof.

Enjoying original characteristics, including exposed beams, feature fireplaces and historic charm, Burwell Cottage is an ideal dwelling for a group of six seeking a peaceful stay in Dorset.

After a day of exploring the coast settle into the lofty living space where a huge feature inglenook rests before the plush seating, relax here before the Freeview TV or sit around the rustic dining table to the rear of the room for board games or activity planning.

Discover the lovely country kitchen, home to an excellent Smeg range cooker along with a host of appliances, with a breakfast table in here to sit at with your morning coffee.

Spend time out in the delightful courtyard garden with furniture, and let your dog stretch their legs.

A cloakroom lies on the ground floor, while the bathroom can be found on the first floor, a cleverly designed wet room with a rainfall shower and a freestanding bath, all of excellent quality.

Completing the property are the three bedrooms, including two king-size bedrooms, one with a grand sleigh bed, and a bunk room, with a top bunk suitable for children under 11.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful abode, venture to the local pub, The Crown Inn for a traditional setting in which to enjoy a well-deserved beverage and some delicious pub grub, making a wonderful way to end each day.

For some wholesome Italian food, be sure to visit The Parlour Restaurant at Bredy Farm, situated in the heart of the picturesque Bride Valley.

For the last-minute essentials, venture towards Burton Bradstock, where you will find Modbury Farm Shop along the way, or pay a visit to Tamarisk Farm in West Bexington, where there are also two more pubs and access to the wonderful Chesil Beach.

Whilst in Burton Bradstock, be sure to dine at the famous Hive Beach Café, an opportunity to enjoy delicious seafood whilst soaking up the inspiring coastal setting, or perhaps book a table at The Club House, also in Burton Bradstock to catch a glimpse of the sun setting over the beautiful beach one summer’s evening.

A little further along the coast is the Fleet Lagoon, home to Abbotsbury Swannery, one of Dorset's most popular attractions, where you can wander through a nesting colony of beautiful mute swans.

Delight in exploring the 18th century Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens with rare plants and enjoy a bite to eat in the on-site restaurant.

Weymouth has a host of attractions for all ages, from the fantastic Sandworld attraction with huge sand sculptures, to the SEA LIFE Centre with amazing creatures, to the picture-perfect Weymouth Beach with its vibrant beach huts and deckchairs, and of course plenty of restaurants, bars and eateries.

Along with the Isle of Portland, walks and cycling in the Dorset AONB and the stunning coastal locations, an escape to Burwell Cottages is sure to be an unforgettable adventure to Dorset.
