Description

Situated in an AONB and sharing four acres of land, Sawmill Cottage is an idyllic retreat with the town of Weymouth nearby.

These delightful holiday cottages are set in the peaceful conservation village of Puncknowle, an AONB. The Jurassic Coast is just 1½ miles away with superb scenic walking, along with use of 4 acres of grounds and footpaths. Each cottage is finished to a high standard offering very comfortable holiday accommodation and is set in the same smart courtyard area as the owners’ homes. The ‘chocolate-box’ village of Burton Bradstock is 3 miles with a good small beach. Abbotsbury, along the coast, has its famous swannery and sub-tropical garden. Further east is the Victorian seaside town of Weymouth, with Blue Flag beach, sea fishing, windsurfing, Sealife Centre and two RSPB nature reserves. Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool are great places for a family day out. Dorchester, the county town also known as Thomas Hardy’s ‘Casterbridge’ is 30 minutes’ drive and has a lively weekly market and beautiful Maiden Castle. To the west is the market town of Bridport which was Thomas Hardy’s ‘Port Bredy’ and has the twice weekly market as featured in the popular TV programme River Cottage. The picturesque harbours of West Bay are a great place for fishing. Lyme Regis is an attractive seaside resort which enjoys a dramatic setting with high cliffs, landslips and handsome harbour, known as The Cobb. Both Lyme Regis and Charmouth are renowned for their prehistoric fossils which are displayed in the local museum and on sale in the fossil shops. Local pub serving good food 250 yards.

Living room with French doors. Kitchen with dining area and tiled floor. Separate toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Twin bedroom with additional single bed (for +1) and en-suite shower room with walk-in shower and toilet. Both bedrooms with sloping ceiling.

    This cottage is lovely. It is comprehensively equipped with anything you will need for your stay. The location is brilliant - being in a quiet village about a mile and a half from the coast. The local pub is very friendly and has a delicious menu. Alan (the owner) met us on arrival, showed us around the cottage and left us a welcome hamper containing milk, sugar, tea and biscuits. The directions we received on how to get to the cottage could perhaps have been clearer - as at one point we thought we had got lost when we drove through a farmyard, but yes this was the way the route suggested. During our stay we did find a better way from the A35 to the village however. In the cottage there is an array of leaflets and brochures suggesting things to do - however many of these are somewhat of an antique. We took our dog with us for our stay and this cottage is eminently suitable for anyone wanting to take their pet with them. There is a public footpath running through the farm - meaning that there is a safe place to walk the dog without any danger of meeting traffic. There is also a small enclosed garden (useful if your pet decides they need to go outside at 2am) and this also has a tiny patio area with a table and benches.

    Our 2nd visit in 6 months - very comfortable, well equipped and warm cottage - the weather during our week was cold and damp so pleasing to return to a warm cottage where heating timing and temperature were under our control. Centrally situated for visiting east and west of Dorset. For dog owners - there is a nice 1 km walk within the farm grounds for a poo and wee walk before venturing out for the day - the owner has even provided a farm poo bin.

    Lovely comfortable and well equipped cottage - it was November and cold outside but the cottage comfy and cosy - the owner Alan Fry explained the heating controls so there was no restriction on use. We had 2 dogs with us and the small enclosed garden was secure and the big bonus was a safe kilometre walk within the farm through the orchard/arboretum that enabled us to walk the dogs before venturing out for the day We love the area and have been several times and have found a very suitable base to return to.

    Some good pubs along the coast, Anchor at Sea Town worth a visit. Great to have an enclosed garden for the dogs.
