Quirky Grade II listed cottage tucked away on the Devon/Dorset/Somerset borders. Surrounded by stunning countryside and 8 miles from the jurassic coast, our 17th century cottage is a cosy rural retreat that sleeps four in comfort.


Our enchanting 17th-century thatched cottage is a true haven of rural peace and tranquillity surrounded by stunning countryside of rolling hills, small farms and woodland. Terraced on either side to similar properties the house forms part of an ancient rural hamlet which, being a rare gem, is group listed. The neighbouring village of Thorncombe offers local amenities that include a church, and an award winning community shop/post office that has keys available for use of the small village swimming pool in the summer months.
The towns of Chard, Crewkerne, Bridport and Axminster are all within easy reach. The historic country house at Forde Abbey is within 1 mile by foot and National Trust land at Lamberts Castle and Pilsdon Pen are also close by. Hikers are attracted to the area by the many public footpaths, bridleways and the renowned Monarch's Way along which Charles II fled to France. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is less than 10 miles to the South at Lyme Regis.

On the ground floor the accommodation comprises of an attractive beamed sitting-room with solid-fuel stove and flagstone floor. The ground floor bedroom (one step down) has a two single beds and walk-in wardrobe. The well-equipped kitchen has a small dining area complete with original window seats and lovely views onto the garden and open countryside. The washing machine and tumble drier are separately located in the utility cupboard where essential country wear, walking boots and wellies can be stored away. There’s a downstairs loo with wash basin which is clean but basic and a bit chilly in winter! Upstairs is a pretty beamed bedroom with king-size bed and large ensuite bathroom.

The cottage is in deep countryside so expect to be visited by chickens, ducks and geese. Spiders that take up residence in the nooks and crannies of the cob walls are also welcomed guests. Newly born lambs and calves are sometimes temporarily housed in the next door barn.

In case of allergies please note that all the duvets and pillows are high quality goose down and feather.

There's a bath but no shower.

The doorways and some of the beams are low so mind your heads.

Like most of the properties in the village the cottage is thatched, so visitors need to be extra vigilant about the risk of fire. The rule is strictly no candles, bare flames, bar-b-ques or open fires in or near the house.

Please respect our neighbours and abide by the Countryside Code. Its very important that dogs are kept under control as livestock wander through the Hamlet. There are sheep in the surrounding fields and its likely you'll see deer, fox, phesant and rabbit.

Wow! What a beautiful quaint cottage hidden in stunning surroundings. We had a wonderful week here. Everything you need is already there waiting for you. As soon as you arrive it feels like home. I have no doubts that whoever stays here will have an amazing time. Because the cottage is such a classic country cottage I could imagine any American staying here going crazy for it! It is a perfect place to enjoy & experience true country living. It's excellent location, just 20 minutes from the gorgeous cute seaside village of Lyme Regis means you can explore the magnificent Jurassic coast. It is also great for checking out both Dorset & Devon. I really can't recommend staying here highly enough.

The cottage is exactly as you would hope for, (but never expect your hopes to be realised). Set in a sleepy hamlet, with geese and guniea fowl roaming the green, the cottage is ideal for those wanting some "down" time. The facilities in the cottage were modern and everything you might need was included. The kitchen was particularly well-equipped. The overall location is wonderful, being within 20 minutes or so of Lyme Regis, Bridport or Axminster, but also away from the busy parts of Dorset. We can particularly recommend the New Inn at Hawkchurch offers really good (but not Cordon Bleu, nor GB prices!), and the landlord is particularly welcoming. So, a lovely place, and we will be returning there and we can recommend it to everyone!

The house was lovely and cosy and we and our dog enjoyed the walks nearby. The cupboards and fridge were well stocked, it was warm and there was plenty of hot water - what more do you need? I would definitely come back here if I'm in this area again. Also well worth a long walk/short drive to Thorncombe village shop were they were extremely welcoming.

The Holt is a fantastic property. The hamlet of Hewood hasn't changed much in the last century or two I would think and it's all the better for it. The cottage is great, full of original features. The surroundings are perfect for humans and animals alike. It is so quiet, it really is a gem of a place. The neighbours are all friendly and will wave or pass the time of day. The ducks and chickens wandering around are quite happy to share their farm. The kitchen is well stocked so you no need to worry about looking for a shop if you arrive late in the evening. As it's remote, there are no street lights so shutting the curtains isn't a must and you can wake with the sun if you wish. I would suggest being outside at cottage at dusk to watch the bats emerging from the barn - a rare treat if you've not seen it before. For keen walkers there are footpaths aplenty!

This was the perfect weekend hideaway. Laura's cottage is full of character and filled with love and attention to detail. Communication with Laura was excellent and we are already planning our next stay.

Laura's cottage is in a beautiful part of Dorset: nicely isolated and quiet but within a short drive to the coast. There are loads of lovely walks in the area which our dog loved, and the cottage itself is beautiful. Laura was a pleasure to deal with. I'd highly recommend staying here.

It is an honour to stay in Laura and Bernie's cottage. This traditional and historic building is full of charm and is cosy and welcoming. We had a fabulous week exploring the local area and found everyone we met to be kind and friendly. Thanks so much for making our holiday so perfect.
