The Bothy is nestled in the delightful Dorset village of Broadwindsor, close to the pretty towns of Beaminster and Bridport.

Also on the ground floor, just off the kitchen, is the first of three bedrooms, with a king-size bed, TV and an en suite shower-room.

The main family bedroom is accessed via a staircase from the kitchen; this is a beautiful, vaulted room with a super-king double bed and a single bed - perfect for children. There's also a handy en suite family bathroom.

A bespoke staircase from the sitting-room leads to the final bedroom, which also has a comfy king-size bed, TV and an en suite shower-room.

The Bothy has a private fenced garden with table and chairs for a spot of al fresco dining. You can also use the communal garden where there is an outdoor table-tennis table - balls and bats are available for your use. There is a charming little stream that runs through the communal garden however please ensure children are supervised at all times in this area.
