Relax in our peaceful Dorset country retreat near the coast. Our lovely guest house comfortably sleeps 2, with a separate bedroom and bathroom. The light, spacious living space with well-stocked kitchenette opens onto a secluded, sunny garden. We are in a small village in the beautiful Marshwood Vale, surrounded by green fields and only a 15 minute drive from the coast. Perfect for walking holidays, exploring the Jurassic Coast or simply getting away from it all.
The Old Cider House is a private, separate annex next to our house, set in a south facing garden. The lovely, light living space includes a well stocked kitchenette and french doors leading to the sunny garden. You have a separate bedroom with double bed and dresser, as well as a modern bathroom with shower. There is plenty of parking and you have your own separate entrance and garden space. The kitchenette includes a microwave and electric induction hob, plus enough pots pans, utensils and other kitchen stuff to whip up a decent meal. There is also a small table to pull out so you can sit and eat in comfort. French doors lead up a couple of steps into the garden where you have a private seating space to enjoy meals outdoors and well deserved sundowners.
What we provide.
When you arrive, you will find all linens and towels provided. If you are with us for more than 9 days, we'll give the annex a clean and provide clean linen and towels on day 7. We do ask that you keep our towels for indoor use and please bring your own beach towels.
Other little extras provided, which may make packing a little easier, include a hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. You will also find some basics in the kitchen including salt, pepper, cooking oil, sugar and tea bags. A Nespresso machine is provided with a small number of capsules to start you off. You may also find some home-baked goodies waiting for you on arrival!
The annex is a completely separate building within our garden, with its own entrance from the road and secluded garden space facing away from the main house. We have a vegetable garden which you are welcome to take advantage of if anything is ripe & ready, as well as your own small herb patch to help the self-catering menus along.
Interaction with guests
Someone will usually be available to welcome you upon arrival, or we will leave your keys in a safe place. We will leave you alone to enjoy your break but you are very welcome to knock or call if you need anything in particular. I am always happy to help with requests and information
