The gorgeous sandstone is a sure sign you're in Dorset.
What a special fireplace! Light the fire and sink back in to the comfortable sofa.
A country-style kitchen with pretty views over the garden.
The double bedroom is bright and spacious, with dual-aspect windows.
The back of Wayside Cottage is just as pretty as the front and the patio is a real sun-trap.
The open plan space is cosy and a perfect space to relax.
Your four-legged friend will be very happy at Wayside Cottage.
The ground-floor bathroom has a luxurious drench-head walk-in shower.
Time for a cup of Dorset Tea in bed!
A lovely view from the landing window looking over the garden. We love the character of the wonky walls!
The pretty single bedroom looks out over the front of the cottage.
Just off the living space, there is a very useful utility area leading on to the garden - perfect for dogs.
The pretty lane where Wayside Cottage is. Parking is available on this road but it is a little narrow so please take care.
The garden is a lovely big space with summer-house and stream at the far end. More garden photos will be coming soon!
This lovely summer-house is available for your use and looks out over the stream. To the right is the little gate that can be shut. More photographs of this area and the garden will be coming soon!
This is the shallow stream running along the far end of the garden, please take care. You can close the little gate in front of the summer-house if you wish to keep this area inaccessible.

Property was wonderful - well equipped kitchen, logs for the fire and everything was nearly refurbished but the owners have manged to also keep the old cottage charm.

A lovely thatched cottage in a hidden Dorset village, just perfect for my mid-week escape. I spent 3 nights at Wayside cottage and I will be back! Two bedrooms (a single and a double) upstairs and plenty of space downstairs with a small enclosed garden, it proved a comfortable living space and a secure area for the dog. You are close to the coast but this is a superb base for exploring the Dorset countryside, just step out the front door and you’re in Marshwood Vale. Wander up out of the village and find Lewesdon hill, the highest point in Dorset, it’s stunning. Head south and discover the unique holloways (Hells Lane!) Finish the day with a pie and a pint at The New Inn (I did) An exceptional property!

The cottage is situated in a beautiful village, with plenty of adjacent walks for our four legged friend, Jasper. The New Inn is literally at the bottom of the garden and this is a friendly pub, with excellent food. The cottage is warm, very clean and comfortable. The cottage has a very beautiful garden, with a stream at the bottom. We were able to sit in it, with our coffee's even in mid October.

A really lovely cottage with everything we needed supplied. Beds were super comfy and the shower was perfect. The New Inn round the corner (a whole 2 minute walk away) does delicious food and there was so much to see and do in the area. Will definitely be returning!
