in Heart of Dorset, near Beautiful Countryside and Sites, for a Special getaway... a relaxing space, comforting classic furnishings, well stocked & equipped kitchenette, softest linens & sumptuous bed, and life's little luxuries included...

The space
OVERVIEW: A beautifully furnished self-contained annex in the garden of our old thatched home. Originally built as a victorian laundry, the accommodation has been lovingly converted, to comprise of a large bedroom, equipped kitchenette-dressing area, and bathroom with shower, fluffy towels and selection of toiletries. The furnishings are classic traditional and unfussy, with oak cabinetry, a cafe table and pair of armchairs, and antique dresser, and many designer details. The curtains are thick and warm, the cottage dark and very quiet, so a good rest is hopefully assured.

MEDIA & ACTIVITIES: The cottage has wi-fi, flat screen tv and dvd with freesat, and an extensive library of films, books, OS maps and music is available for your use. We are very familiar with the area, so can help with journey planning and finding luscious pubs. Also, a picnic hamper, rug, chairs and sun umbrella are available for days out. Please simply ask if need anything.

SLEEP: We have furnished the property with possibly the most sumptuous comfy bed! VSpring with feather topper and squidgy feather pillows and duvet layers in 600 thread count luxurious linens, and soft throws. Equally cosy hypoallergenic bedding is available upon request.

ADDITIONAL GUESTS: There is plenty of room for a travel cot- extra single bed available here, such as if you are travelling with your baby or older child, simply ask.

PETS: Pets are welcome by prior consent. Also, please be mindful of our own, very friendly, never in guest rooms and kept in the main home.

BREAKFAST: Tea, coffee, juices and snacks will be provided, as are condiments. A continental breakfast, including selection of fresh breads and fruits, cereals, cheeses and yoghurts, will be available in your room, or optionally a full English or American is available upon request, in your room or the dining room.

Little extras can be arranged, such as vase of flowers or bubbly to mark an occasion upon arrival, so please enquire.

Location

Durweston, United Kingdom

We live away from the main road in a peaceful central village location with trees and relaxing cottage garden to enjoy, near the church and down the lane from village green and hall. There is ample space to park your car off-road.

Lovely scenery, friendly gentle village w/ sense of community, near to several interesting places. I've simply always felt so @ home, cosy and comfortable here!

Hello, I'm Lisa... I'm English and American. Born and lived until 30 in California, in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. I helped move my parents back to their homeland in the mid 90’s, and have lived here ever since, in Surrey and for several years in Dorset. I am mum to two gorgeous, Melissa (Mills) and Elisabeth (Elias). My uni degrees are in Art and Architecture, and I've worked mainly in Architecture and Interior Design. I enjoy the great outdoors and coast in Dorset, gardening, relaxing with a close companion, a variety of arts and culture. I love to entertain and cook for friends, whether old or new found as guests.
