The property

Situated within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Beauty, in the quiet village of Toller Porcorum, this first floor flat boasts an elevated position, overlooking open countryside.

Ideal for those seeking a refreshing break, in a charming location, this cottage was formerly a school and retains some of its traditional character inside.

The open-plan living room enjoys the best views in the house, with a beautiful arched window overlooking the playing field, backed by green trees.

Sit here with a heart-warming beverage and enjoy the light-filled space.

Low exposed beams add character, whilst the kitchen offers a classic setup with ample fixtures getting you through your stay.

Catch your rest in one of two bedrooms comprising a double and a twin, served by a brightly coloured bathroom.

The kids will love the playing field outside, while you relax and enjoy a refreshing drink at one of the picnic benches.

The village itself may be small, however just a couple of miles away are the delights of Maiden Newton, where you will find shops, pubs and the Hog Cliff National Nature Reserve.

Bridport is an attractive market town with wide streets and alleyways between the houses, where you will find more shops, pubs and restaurants.

Take a day out to explore the dramatic, sandstone cliffs at West Bay, known as the golden gateway to the Jurassic Coast.

Discover the vibrant town of Dorchester, with its wide selection of local amenities, Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England and the County Museum, which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy.

A delightful base for exploring the whole of West Dorset!
