Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 2. Regret no pets.

A 1920's style cottage of great character and charm, 1 1/2 miles from the sea in West Dorset with views to Lyme Bay at Charmouth and Lyme Regis. One double bedroom, ensuite bathroom, kitchen and dining/sitting room, open fireplaces, Digital TV, DVD, and video, bookshelves, heating, private south facing garden, with access to a conservatory adjoining a large terrace and a 12 meter swimming pool, private entrance and parking. We now have free good quality WIFI internet available in the cottage suitable for all laptops

Upstairs there is a comfortable bedroom with a king-size double bed (or two singles), storage heater, an open fireplace, and a bay window which overlooks the garden. This is ensuite with a substantial bathroom and WC. A large oak door opens out onto a veranda (seen in the upper part of the photograph) from which there are fine views over the lower or Evening Terrace, swimming pool, and the formal gardens (which cover 2 1/2 acres), to Lyme Bay in the distance. Adjoining the Evening Terrace is an old fashioned Conservatory with large curved windows (the building to the right in the photograph). You can see the most wonderful sunsets from the Evening Terrace, underlined by the pool and gardens, with the pinpoints of lights appearing at Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

General Area: For walkers and sightseers, there are many places of interest within very easy reach of the property in this outstandingly beautiful part of England. These include the National Trust trails and preserved sites such as the Golden Cap Estate, Lambert Castle, Lewisdon Hill and Hardown Hill. There are many picturesque unspoilt villages in the area. The nearest beach is at St Gabriel's Gap, some 1 1/2 miles distant. The coastline, which is famous for it's rich fossiliferous rocks, now has World Heritage status. Within half an hours drive you can reach the tropical gardens of Abbotsbury, and in that region and inland, Thomas Hardy country. The town of Lyme Regis, famous for its picturesque harbour and 'The Cobb', and Bridport a busy and prosperous market town still with fishing interests, are each about 10 minutes away by car.

Notes:
'The Tallet' means wheelwright's shop. The original building dates from the 18th century and was converted in the 1920's in Arts & Crafts style. It is situated amid lush Dorset countryside in the grounds of a larger property known as Littlehill, but is separate, and has its own access and parking. The cottage has recently been completely modernised to luxury standard. The accommodation is for 2 people and comprises, on the ground floor, an open plan modern kitchen at one end, partly separated by a small internal staircase from the living/dining area with an open fireplace, TV and video, storage heater, and bookshelves: the floor is old pine wood blocks. A patio door opens out onto a south facing stone terrace and small completely private garden with a pond. Below is another terrace the Tuscan Terrace with terracotta tiles which open out to a large conservatory also for guests use and the 12 meter swimming pool.

Rustic ,simple and charming. Lovely gardens and pool area. Pool was a great bonus at the end of a hot day.

Great location for Lyme Regis and Beer which are well worth a visit, or inland to Shaftsbury and some beautiful villages, bliss !!

Thankyou to Terence and Willemien for such a lovely stay and the wine and bread.

Terence and partner made us very welcome and gave us good advice regarding walks. We visited many tourist sites and ate out at some very nice local restaurants including Italian in Lyme Regis that was really pleasant and family run.

A memorable character cottage for two.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was full of character and the wood fire in the evening was a real treat. Too cold (february) to enjoy the garden but it looked lovely and the view over the hills to Charmouth was delightful. Well equipped kitchen. The proprietors were welcoming and helpful. Thanks for the tasty loaf of bread and bottle of wine. Some good walks direct from the cottage.

Fabulous opportunity for a relaxing stay in this beautiful location. We spent the week having long coastal walks with the added bonus of returning to the swimming pool to cool off afterwards

Car: recommended

In an area of outstanding natural beauty close to the National Trust Golden Cap Estate 1 1/2 miles from the World Heritage Site coastline famous for its Jurassic period dinosaur and ammonite fossils and exposed in the cliffs and at low tide. Behind the cottage is another National Trust area, Hardown Hill, which offers impressive views in all directions. Ideal for walkers of all types, but most of the beauty spots can also be reached by car.
