Description

There’s plenty to do here at Lydden – take a day trip out to explore the area or simply relax in the pool.

"Set in glorious countryside... not far from the Jurassic Coast"

Lancombe Country Cottages are set in three acres of glorious Thomas Hardy country, in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in west Dorset, close to the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, including the Chesil Beach. The six holiday cottages converted from old barns are set around an attractive courtyard, now a communal lawned area, are all well finished and equipped and provide a relaxing retreat after a day out sightseeing.
All are named after local rivers, offer comfortable accommodation and can be booked individually or together, depending on party numbers. Unwind in the 3 acres of grounds, relax in the heated indoor swimming pool (open every day), perhaps enjoy a sauna, or on a fine day, chill out with a barbecue in a pleasant setting overlooking beautiful Dorset countryside. These properties have been awarded a Dorset Silver Tourism Award for 2015.
Within easy driving distance visitors can explore the stunning Chesil Beach and Jurassic Coast, from Weymouth to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, with its harbour and famous Cobb. Enjoy the many little seaside resorts, spectacular scenic coastal walks, fishing, swimming, fossil hunting and attractions such as Abbotsbury Swannery (where the swans may be fed) and Sub-Tropical Gardens, and Bennetts Water Gardens.
There are many historic houses and gardens to visit including Athelhampon House and Gardens, and Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park, as well as family attractions such as Bovington Tank Museum, Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, Monkey World at Wareham and the Sea Life Centre at Weymouth.
The bustling market and county town of Dorchester, 8 miles, with its 18th-century houses, shops, restaurants and market is worth a visit, as is Weymouth with its Georgian seafront, Blue Flag sandy beach and traditional seaside entertainment. Inland there is the famous Cerne Abbas Giant and the quaint historic abbey town of Sherborne. Enjoy golf, fishing, horse riding and go-karting locally. Convenience store on site. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

Open-plan beamed living/dining room and kitchen area with tiled floor. First floor: Double bedroom with four-poster bed. Single bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Great accommodation in beautiful Dorset countryside location. It didn't feel claustrophobic with other guests around either. Caroline and her team were immensely helpful - especially in helping us celebrate Rosie's birthday. We'd go again!...

    This place was ideal for us. Beautiful peaceful location. Our 4 year old daughter had a great time and Caroline and her team were so welcoming. Chicken feeding and egg collection was a big hit as was the fairy wood. Our daughter was delighted to receive replies to her letters to the fairies. Long may her innocence last! Indoor pool was a great temperature Only suggestion- outdoor swings and slides.

    Had a lovely relaxing week, quiet location but near enough to lots of attractions to visit. Kids loved the pool and chickens. Some swings/climbing frame or a small play area outside would have been good to keep the kids amused.
