Beautiful character cottage sleeping nine, enjoying a quiet location in the picturesque village of Briantspuddle in Dorset, just ten miles from the county’s dramatic coastline, with its beaches, clifftop walks, and fossil-rich geology.
This property is situated in the peaceful village of Briantspuddle, one of a cluster of villages, the most famous of which is Tolpuddle, known for its important place in English history. A visit to the Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum makes for an eye-opening afternoon spent learning the full story behind the martyrs, their cause, and their legacy. Two of the area’s top attractions can be found just four miles from the property: Bovington Tank Museum, and Monkey World, a fantastic ape rescue centre. One of the big draws of the area is, of course, its impressive coastline, which lies ten miles south of the property. Whether you want to spend lazy days at the beach, hunt for fossils, try your hand at water sports, or enjoy stunning coastal walks, all of this and more can be found on the area’s beaches, which include Sandbanks, Lulworth Cove, Weymouth, and Studland Bay.
This characterful property makes a wonderful place for a restful holiday with friends or family, and guests will immediately start to feel themselves relax as soon as they open the front door onto the spacious lounge.
