Overview

About the property

Situated on our working farm The Brambles is a delightful, recently renovated one bedroom cottage ideal for couples wanting a peaceful, rural break. A short walk from the cottage you will see the stunning Chesil Beach, part of Dorset's Jurassic Coastline. Although only having one bedroom the Brambles has plenty of space for 2 people. The main living area has a well equipped kitchen space and comfortable sitting area with a sofa and log fire. There is a table to enjoy a meal together and French windows lead out onto a secluded south facing patio with garden furniture to sit and enjoy a drink in the evening. The bedroom can be made up as a double or twin. The bathroom contains a bath and a shower attachment. Nearby you will find the Old Stable which has table tennis and a Foosball Table Football game. In addition there is a large collection of novels for you to borrow and a free wifi hotspot to catch up on your emails and social media. There are also laundry facilities.

We try to stick to weekly breaks running Friday to Friday and short breaks out of season - a 3 night break running Friday to Monday and a 4 night break running Monday to Friday. However we can be flexible if you have different requirements.

The cottage is surrounded by open fields to explore and for the very energetic you can easily join the Coastal Footpath. The village of Langton Herring has its own pub, The Elm Tree, which is about a 5 min walk away.

About Colin Elwood

Character Farm Cottages is owned by my wife Jane and her parents Rob and Ann Mayo and have been in the self catering business for over 30 years. Many of our guests come several times a year and we now have 3rd generations of families enjoying our cottages! In addition Jane and Rob run the family farm which is mixed and consists of dairy, arable and beef. Many of our guests enjoy wandering the many footpaths on the farm, visiting the dairy and helping feed the young calves. I am a long haul pilot for British Airways and when at home, help out with the farm and keeping the cottages up together. I also keep our own website up and running and do all the bookings and correspondence.

We do hope you choose to visit and enjoy our wonderful part of West Dorset!

What makes this cottage unique

The Brambles is on the edge of the small village of Langton Herring, 3 miles from the seaside town of Weymouth. From the cottage you can walk a short distance to the Fleet and Chesil Beach which forms part of the famous Jurassic Coast recently featured in the highly popular TV series "Broadchurch". We farm most of the land surrounding the Brambles and we are always very happy to show guests around the dairy to see the cows being milked. Youngsters also like to lend a hand feeding the baby calves! Langton Herring has its own pub called the Elm Tree Inn which is a short walk from the cottage. In the next door village, Portesham you will find the Kings Arms which we highly recommend.

Weymouth is popular for its lovely sandy beach and shallow waters. It also has other attractions such as Sea Life Center, Nothe Fort, Brewers Quay, karting and a multiplex cinema. Nearby Dorchester has a good selection of restaurants at the newly opened Brewers Square such as Nandos, Waggamamas, Carluccios and Cote.

Dorset is also home to many stunning country houses and gardens, the Tank Museum at Bovington, Monkey World, and many fantastic country pubs.

What a wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Brambles from 23-27 March and had a great time. The cottage was cosy, had everything you needed and was so peaceful. We managed to do so many lovely walks along the coast and the scenery was stunning. The Elm Tree pub, which is within walking distance, and the Kingfisher Arms both served great food. Would definitely recommend staying here and will hopefully come back.
