A completely self-contained and private one-bed cottage set in the grounds of our own home.

Ideal for a couple (plus an infant under 2 with your own cot) who want peace & quiet in rural Dorset. Easy access to wonderful woodland and coastal walks.

We are experience renters, but new hosts on AirBnb, but have been successfully renting The Stables since 2007, so forgive us that we have no AirBnB reviews. You can be sure of a comfortable, spotlessly clean & fully-equipped holiday cottage.

The space
Dorset’s World Heritage Jurassic Coast is close to this comfortably furnished, single-storey, spacious cottage. Set within the grounds of the our home, (we are usually resident), The Stables is self-contained, with its own extremely private garden, which is a gardener’s delight – secluded, west-facing and with wonderful flowers, shrubs and trees dividing the lawned areas. An entrance lobby gives access to the en suite bedroom and the comfortable, roomy sitting-room which has French doors out to the garden. Two steps, a slope and low lintel (please take care) separate the sitting-room from the kitchen/diner.

Set in the heart of Thomas Hardy’s rural Dorset, between Dorchester and the Saxon town of Wareham, this cottage is within easy reach of Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle and the beaches of Studland and Weymouth.

Guest access
The whole cottage is for your sole access.

Note that we do not charge an additional cleaning fee.

Other things to note
The mobile phone signal for networks other than Vodafone and O2 is unreliable

Location

Dorchester, Dorset, United Kingdom

We are set in a very peaceful rural part of Dorset, 200 metres from Pallington Sculptute Lakes, 6 miles from Dorchester and 10 from Wareham.

Lots of National Trust properties close by, including Hardy's Cottage (Thomas Hardy's birthplace), Max Gate (Hardy's Dorchester house), Clouds Hill (Lawrence of Arabia's Dorset Home), Kingston Lacy and Corfe Castle.

We are a few miles from the world-famous Jurassic Coast (Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door etc) and giving access to some wonderful walks and views.

Pubs and shops are a little distant, but there are lots of local tea rooms, including the Sculpture Park's own cafe/bistro, 200 metres away.

We do specify a 3pm check-in and a 10am check out, but we may be able to be flexible on this depending on other bookings, so feel free to contact us if you'd like to arrive earlier or leave later.
