Owl Cottage in Dorset, a cottage in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire: Owl Cottage exterior

Serene position, large garden , 10 mins walk down to Ringstead beach.

One of [if not the ] most beautifully situated cottages on the Dorset coast equidistant between Weymouth and Lulworth Cove .Set in an isolated position adjoining N.T. land ,100 yards from a neighbouring farm close to the S.W. Coastal Path .
The cottage ,in a mature 3/4 acre garden, faces due south overlooking the sea ,elevation 70 m. It is approx. a 10 min.walk down to the mile long Ringstead beach which is never crowded and totally undeveloped . Clear water and safe swimming This walk might be a bit much for the infirm and truly elderly . However a mile or so from the cottage is road access to a beach carpark , paying, and a summer shop which stocks essentials plus possibly fresh lobsters and scallops.
This special place appeals to those who love nature and tranquillity "far from the madding crowd". It has been a family holiday house for 42 years and perhaps the atmosphere reflects that rather than the more utilitarian commercial lets .There is no television which appeals to those who enjoy music ,conversation , books and sitting with a glass of wine gazing at the sea and stars.
The garden is a paradise for children with hammock and a "sleepable "play house. HOWEVER PARENTS SHOULD NOTE THERE ARE TWO SMALL UNFENCED PONDS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE GARDEN .
There is also a wood cabin high above the garden with twin beds ,light and heat but this has not been included in the total bed count. A great place to siesta and sleep on summer nights.

Ground floor:
Kitchen [details below] ,french doors to garden , new installation 3 years ago , large enough to eat/breakfast. Washer dryer,outside access next to back door.
