This small hamlet, a 10-minute drive from Bridport, in the beautiful Marshwood Vale, was once a stopping place for monks on their way to St Wite’s shrine in Whitchurch Canonicorum and is where they would have had their tonsures shaved.  The Inn, which stands at the crossroads where the tonsure shaving took place, has been there since the 14th century and is still very popular today.  Don’t worry though, you will leave with a full head of hair!  </span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><a href="https://www.dorsetcottages.com/bridport/wy400-allviews-cottage">Allviews Cottage</a> is located in Shave Cross and is the perfect holiday cottage for a family.  Spacious, with lots of character and a large enclosed garden.  The views across the Marshwood Vale are fantastic, and there are lots of lovely walks across the fields, or up Pilsdon Pen, the second-highest point in Dorset, and the location of an Iron Age fort.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>At Allviews, you have the best of both worlds; you are surrounded by beautiful Dorset countryside, but are also just a short drive to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline at Charmouth and Lyme Regis, perfect for fossil hunting or just a day on the beach.  Bridport is the closest town, and has something going on all the time, from the hat festival, to the busy schedule of cultural events at the Electric Palace or the Arts Centre.  There is a street market on a Wednesday and Saturday, lots of interesting shops to peruse and some great cafes.  See if you can find the Red Brick Café in the vintage quarter!</span></span></span></span></p> <p><strong><u>Langton Herring</u></strong></p> <p><span><span><span><span>Langton Herring is the picture perfect Dorset village.  Sandstone houses, some of which are thatched, and an interesting history of smuggling!  From the village, you can walk to the fleet and enjoy  fabulous views of the world famous Chesil Beach.  For anyone who has read ‘Moonfleet’ this is location, and at night it’s certainly easy to imagine rum-running and plunder!  Please remember that the water off Chesil is very dangerous, and so swimming is not permitted.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>The village has a popular local pub, The Elm Tree, which is a short walk from <a href="https://www.dorsetcottages.com/langton-herring/wy431-badgers-cottage">Badgers Cottage</a>.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>Just 5 miles away is the popular seaside town of Weymouth, with one of the best sandy beaches in Dorset.  The beach is very child safe, and there are lots of things to do in and around the town.  The Chesil Beach café/visitor centre on Ferry Bridge Road, Portland is a great place to learn more about the fleet, and maybe even join in on one of the fleet explorer activities.  The café also has webcams underwater, and so you can watch Seabass and other fish whilst you eat!  </span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>Langton Herring is a great base from which to explore the Jurassic coast.  A short drive west along one of the UK’s most iconic roads (B3157), is Abbotsbury, location of the Sub-tropical gardens, swannery and children’s farm.  Keep going and you’ll reach Burton Bradstock, home of the Hive Beach Café, which is then just a short drive from the ‘Broadchurch’ cliffs at West Bay.  </span></span></span></span></p> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/3" hreflang="en">Property Showcase</a> Wed, 25 Sep 2019 08:57:29 +0000 Anonymous 911 at http://dorsetcottages.com Three luxury holiday cottages you’ll never want to leave! http://dorsetcottages.com/blog/2018/01/three-luxury-holiday-cottages-you%25E2%2580%2599ll-never-want-to-leave <span class="field-wrapper">Three luxury holiday cottages you’ll never want to leave!</span> <span class="field-wrapper"><span lang="" about="/user/171" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Cleome Beagley</span></span> <span class="field-wrapper">Thu, 18/01/2018 - 10:43</span> <div> <p>Whether you are looking for an escape from the stress of everyday life or just fancy a break exploring the Dorset coastline, why book a holiday cottage where you can enjoy a little luxury.

This apartment is a lovely little retreat right in the centre of Swanage and perfect for a couple with young children looking for a holiday in or out of season.</p> <p>Small, but perfectly formed, the apartment is bright and lets a lot of light in. It is warm in the winter, and has been cool when the days have been warmer this week. I really love the style and decor and it is clear that the owner has given the ambiance a lot of thought - simple and tasteful. There are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, open plan kitchen, living/dining area with a good use of space and modern bathroom.</p> <p>Nice little touches were also in place - a nice welcome tray was laid out on my arrival with local 'Dorset' biscuits and pint of milk after my long journey. The beds were made up ready for me and there were lovely toiletries ready for me to use should I wish to. It's the small things that really make you feel special when getting away and staying in a self-catering holiday home.</p> <p>The location is perfect - a short stroll to the local pubs like The Swan and The Red Lion, restaurants like The Canteen and The Corner Restaurant and local shops if you need to stock up on supplies during your stay - such as The Coop and Budgens. If you're here for the seaside atmosphere, you couldn't be better situated - the sandy beach is within minutes walk as is the South West Coast Path.</p> <p>Facilities include, parking, WiFi, linen, accepts short breaks.</p> <p>To book this property for yourself, or to find out more about it, click here.

Easter is just around the corner. And if a holiday in Dorset wasn't enough to tempt you, we're giving away a hamper jam-packed with local goodies for you to enjoy while you're here on holiday.</p> <p>One lucky holiday maker, enjoying a holiday with us over the Easter period, will receive a hamper delivered to their holiday property to devour during their stay. If you book by the end of February, you'll be in with the chance too, so don't delay. Here's a few ideas to help you with your decision....</p> <h3>A room with a view</h3> <p>You can't beat a great view and there is no better location than Ballard Estate with the vast views out to sea, peace and quiet and your very own room to sit and take it all in from. 22 Ballard Estate has the perfect, private gallery waiting for you, your book and your cuppa to relax and enjoy!</p> <h3>Bringing outdoors indoors</h3> <p>With your own terrace and decking area, you can throw open the large patio doors and have the outdoors rolling into your living room. Ballard View Apartment is ideally located with views of the bay, and from the decked area, you can see the beach and right down into the town - people watch in private.</p> <h3>Beside the seaside</h3> <p>Another popular favourite is Waters Edge Balcony Apartment. This property is superbly situated on the Haven Complex. This apartment benefits from being on the front row, so the best views in town, which keep guests returning year after year! A picture tells a thousand words.....</p> <h3>Great outdoors</h3> <p>The Old Dairy House in Arne attracts holiday makers who enjoy a property with a garden, a BBQ and tranquil space to enjoy the great outdoors. The beautiful garden is very well maintained, is great for kids and adults to run off excess energy!</p> <h3>Fido can come along too!</h3> <p>If you can bring your pet, why wouldn't you!? Many properties in Swanage and the surrounds allow pets, and Wild Hill is just one of them - plenty of space in the garden and easy access to walks in the countryside.</p> <p>Whatever your requirements, we will have a property to meet your needs. If you'd like to talk through your ideal property, dates or costs, we'd be very happy to have a chat with you on the phone or on email. And don't forget....book by 28th Feb to see if you can win that hamper.</p> <p>Full Ts and Cs can be found here.</p> <p>Good luck!</p> </div> <div class="field-wrapper field field-node--field-tags field-name-field-tags field-type-entity-reference field-label-hidden"> <ul class="field-items tocc__itemlist tocc__itemlist--inline" data-prefix="Tags"> <li class="field-item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/36" hreflang="en">Events</a></li> <li class="field-item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/38" hreflang="en">Property Showcase</a></li> <li class="field-item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/15" hreflang="en">News</a></li> </ul> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/3" hreflang="en">Property Showcase</a> Mon, 09 Feb 2015 18:31:33 +0000 Ginny Kay 438 at http://dorsetcottages.com
