A traditional thatched Dorset longhouse, Old Dairy Cottage is on the edge of a friendly village with a well-stocked shop & post office.
Historic castles, excellent walking (coast & cliff, woodland, heath, fields, Lulworth Castle), plenty of family attractions (Monkey World, Bovington Tank Museum, Thomas Hardy's house, Lawrence of Arabia's house, Iron Age Maiden Castle, Weymouth beach & marina) & good places to eat nearby.
The cottage is next to a working dairy (children enjoy visiting the cows) & is 5 mins walk from the village shop. The cottage used to be the dairyman's home and has very thick walls and low ceilings.
Relax in the garden (with pond) or by the log fire or take off and explore the beautiful countryside and historic sites.
There are plenty of pubs and good places to eat.
The farmhouse kitchen is well equipped & often the place where everyone comes together round the table for breakfast or an evening meal.
There are plenty of maps and guidebooks in the library and toys under the stairs for younger visitors.
There are three freeview TVs and wifi.
