Swallow in Dorset, a cottage in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire: Swallow exterior

Thick stone walls and wooden beams located in AONB

Swallow is one of four cottages (sleeping from 2 to 4 people) converted from a courtyard of old stone barns located in the peaceful rural Holcombe Valley just two miles from Dorset's world famous Jurassic Coast.

It's the perfect place to relax and unwind - listen to skylarks, and watch buzzards soaring. There is an active badger sett about 400 meters from the cottages and the badgers can be seen in the evenings during summer months.

Swallow is a one bedroomed single storey cottage to sleep up to two people.

The main accomodation is an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room with exposed beams and stone walls. This area is lovely and bright with windows facing out to the open fields and also into the courtyard. There are two comfy lounge chairs to relax in and also window seats built into the 18 inch thick stone walls.

There is an LCD High Definition digital TV,with a DVD player which will also play audio CD's - we provide a selection of films in the cottage. The kitchen is well equiped with all that you will need during your stay. If you are staying during the colder months, there is full gas central heating with thermostatically controlled radiators in each room, and the cottage is fully double glazed to the latest standard.

The bedroom has a king sized double bed and we provide all the bedlinen and towels. The bathroom. has a WC, washbasin and 'P' shaped bath so you can shower or relax in a hot bath.

All gas, electric, bedlinen and towels are included in the price. We also provide a welcome pack of local goods.

Walk straight from the cottage directly onto footpaths and bridleways. You can walk for miles without going near a road - or you can take a fifteen minute stroll down the bridleway to the village (Broadmayne) where there is the village shop and pub.

If Swallow is already let for the period that you require, please contact us as we may be able to offer a larger cottage at a reduced rate.
