About the property

Spacious and rural cottage in the heart of Thomas Hardy country; family friendly

Dorset period cottage in Thomas Hardy country, near the Jurassic Coast and Dorchester for holiday rental with 4 bedrooms sleeping 6, a bathroom, shower room, seperate living room, large kitchen diner with lounge area and a large garden with a hot tub which can be prepared for your enjoyment as an extra. The beautiful coastline at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, Weymouth and the National Sailing Academy (site of the sailing events for the 2012 Olympics) are all nearby.

Cob Cottage has 2 double bedrooms and 2 single bedrooms for 6 people. There is also a pull-out double sofa bed in the living room downstairs which we will prepare for you. Please note that we charge an additional £20 per night per person if there are more than 6 guests.

There is a hot tub in the garden that can be enjoyed for the week at an additional £70 per week. The fully fitted kitchen is ideal for preparing family meals and there is a dining table and living room. We are happy to accept pets but we charge £10 per pet per night to cover the deep clean to ensure future guests with allergies are not affected.

If you and your friends or family would enjoy treating yourselves during your holiday to luxurious spa treatments, you can contact My Personal Sanctuary and their mobile massage and beauty therapists will bring their luxury spa to you at Cob Cottage. Let us know if you are interested and I will forward their details to you.

This is rural Dorset and we are lucky to have an English Heritage listed village pub; guests have reported excellent food and have enjoyed even playing skittles there! The next village a mile away has a general shop and post office, a petrol station and garage and even a tennis court to rent.

The nearest beach with a cafe is 5 miles away, and Dorchester (4 miles away) is the county town with supermarkets, shopping, cinemas and a number of restaurants. Weymouth (7 miles away) is a large tourist resort with beaches and water sports available. Many of our guests order an online supermarket delivery service; alternatively you will find many large supermarkets in Dorset as well as some lovely food markets in Weymouth and in Dorchester.

There is a Wood burning stove in the living room and free WIFI. Pets are welcome but we charge £10 a night and ask that the garden is tidied of any soiling. Non-smoking house, but smokers can use the garden; please dispose of cigarette butts. Flat wall-mounted TV with Freeview for your enjoyment.

We are pleased to offer loyalty discounts to returning guests. Please contact us to find out more.

Great locationand very well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Although the house doesn't look very large from the outside is does in fact have plenty of space inside. We were a family of 6 and suited us perfectly. The kitchen was excellent, very spacious with top appliances and plenty of saucepans, utensils etc. Hot tub was a welcome relax after miles of walking along the Jurassic coast.

Owner's Response: Delighted our guests made use of the hot tub to reward themselves after the long walks. The countryside surrounding the cottage is a joy to explore. We do hope Tristan and his family will join us again soon to discover more.

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was beautiful. Very clean and well equipped. Disapointed with the hot tub as it broke down after just one day but did not spoil the holiday. Pub in the village of West Knighton brilliant and excellent meal.
