Imagine spending a week in a fabulous former dairyman's cottage with all mod-cons! This very stylishly furnished, yet quirky, semi-detached cottage is in the village of Morcombelake, just a mile and a half from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The picturesque town of Lyme Regis, with its iconic 13th Century Cobb and harbour, is just five miles away and the bustling market town of Bridport just four miles. This character cottage has all the ingredients for a perfect break; an ultra-modern kitchen, huge fireplace with cosy wood-burner, modern shower/bathrooms, large comfortable beds, and fibre broadband. The elevated garden has sea glimpses; sit back and reflect on your day of exploring, or just sip a glass of something delicious and enjoy being on holiday.
Dairy Cottage has a modern fitted kitchen and a HD television; a PlayStation 2, complete with dance mats and karaoke microphones, and a selection of books, games and DVDs are also provided for your entertainment. Outside, steps lead up to a raised enclosed garden, perfect for children and dogs (take care with children on the steps). Please ensure children do not play in the driveway in front of the cottage as this belongs to the neighbours. There are simply masses of things to do right on your doorstep; Lyme Regis, famous for its geology, fossils and year-round festivals, is a short drive and you may even find your own fossil if you scour Monmouth beach to the west of the Cobb, where the blue lias clay contains the remains of sea creatures from the Jurassic seas of 180 million years ago. The award-winning Felicity's Farm Shop is half a mile away, packed with local produce, you are bound to find something delicious for the barbecue. Nearby the market town of Bridport has a street market every Wednesday and Saturday, more excuses to sample and shop for delicious local produce. For the energetic, bring your walking boots, the South West Coast Path offers miles of stunning Jurassic coastline; a 20 minute walk from the cottage takes you down to St Gabriel's Ledge; head east along the path and climb Dorset's Golden Cap for breathtaking views, descend into Chideock and you will deserve a rest at the Anchor Inn, the menu there is mouth-watering. Further afield, the Isles of Portland and Purbeck have so much beauty and history to offer. Two well-behaved dogs over one year of age are welcome at Dairy Cottage.
