Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Dorchester - The Old School Cottage

Close to the Jurassic Coast - AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)

The Old School is set in the tranquil village of Toller Porcorum in the beautiful Dorset countryside at the end of a no through road leading onto open farmland. Toller Porcorum nestles in the River Hooke valley, within the West Dorset ’Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and is in easy reach of the beautiful ’Jurassic Heritage Coast’.

It is an ideal base for visiting such places as Burton Bradstock (8 miles), West Bay/Bridport (8 miles), Beaminster (8 miles) and the historic Roman town of Dorchester (11 miles). Weymouth, Lyme Regis and Abbotsbury, with it’s famous swannery and tropical gardens, lie to the south & the famous Cerne Abbas Giant to the north, are all within the surrounding area. Eggardon Hill, the Ancient Briton hillfort, is just a 2 mile walk away. The neighbouring village of Maiden Newton has a grocery shop, garage, newsagents and coffee shop. Many of the local pubs are well renowned for excellent food, beer and their warm welcome.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Lovely clean, quiet, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this peaceful location, tucked away in a small village but not far from the coast and places to visit. We had a restful time which with an 18 month old toddler is quite an achievement! The cottage is opposite fields with a small play park, with beautiful views. It is clean, comfy and well equipped. We would stay here again.
