Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Rousdon - Middlemist

4 bedroom, 2 lounge Grade II listed house to sleep 8

Middlemist is a Grade II listed corner courtyard cottage, situated adjacent to the stately mansion house in the heart of Rousdon, an exclusive 350 acre private estate set atop the Devon and Dorset Jurassic coastline.

This beautifully restored and spacious dwelling can comfortably accommodate 8 (+2) people offering four double bedrooms (2 en suite) and a sofa bed. With its flint stone walls and exposed beams, traditional decoration but with all modern appliances it offers a truly wonderful setting from which to explore nature or simply relax with some rooms offering distant sea views.

Guests have access to the surrounding countryside and the half mile stretch of private beach perfectly fulfilling those with a sense of adventure as access to the beach is via a steep (but safe) cliff top path.

Rousdon is just a few miles from 'the pearl of Dorset' Lyme Regis renowned for its fossil hunters treasure trove and famous for its Cobb.

Extra Information: There is a car park to the front of the courtyard.

The BBQ is in the open garden which is behind the property accessed via the lounge French doors.

Occupancy runs from Friday to Friday (unless otherwise agreed), arrival is from 2.30pm, vacating by 10am.

Short breaks may be considered for any date if the property is not rented. Just ask!

Although the property comfortably suits 8 people a further two could be accommodated due to the sofa-bed in the upstairs lounge, bedding isn't provided for this, please state at booking if it is required.

Payment by on-line transfer preferred but cheques accepted.

Non-Refundable breakages deposit of £350 required which will be refunded within two weeks of departure (subject to satisfactory property inspection.

Car: recommended

Rousdon can be found sitting on the borders of Devon and Dorset and although quiet and private is close to many popular attractions and quaint villages and towns. Being part of the Jurassic Coast (and a World Heritage Site) there are many opportunities to go fossil-hunting at Lyme Regis (which is also home to Dinosaur-land) and Charmouth.

Axminster is about a 15 minute drive away, home to TVs River Cottage, and also offers a sports complex with a swimming pool and other facilities. It is a wonderful area to explore on foot along the West Coast pathway

Go fishing and see the quarry caves in Beer; see the forge in Branscombe; travel the tram at Seaton; visit Jacob's Ladder beach at Sidmouth; grab a cream tea or pub lunch almost anywhere!
