At the end of a private track that wends through National Trust land is this beautiful spot. Sea and cliffs stretch out ahead and you can see the entire length of Chesil Beach. When the wind blows from the east you can hear the surf against the stones; behind is a bluebell wood full of songbirds. You can gaze on the view to Portland from the kitchen table too, as toes, pets and wellies are warmed by a super green Rayburn. Interiors are cosy and without fuss: the TV room has heaps of DVDs, the snug is ideal for a post clifftop-walk snooze. Bedrooms upstairs are restful with good beds dressed in white and the master room has the best views, down to valley and sea. Bathrooms are simple and spotless. Owner Veronica is an artist, with a studio in the garden, she lives in the main part of this old farmhouse and is on hand should you need anything. Children can meet resident pigs, hens, (you can buy the eggs and bacon for breakfast!) goats and sheep. Fossils, art and lovely Bridport are all a hop and you can’t avoid the Jurassic Coast – it’s two fields away.
