    A beautiful thatched property, peacefully located in the village of East Burton near Wool in Dorset. Perfect for families or friends who wish to enjoy the beautiful surrounding area of Dorset and the unesco World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, and just 5 miles from the famous picturesque Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. The Jurassic Coastline is home to over 300 coastal country walks, offering some breathtaking views over Dorset’s 200 million year old shoreline. This lovely cottage is located down a quiet country lane, yet just one mile and easy walking distance from the town of Wool for easy rail access to the rest of Dorset including Dorchester, Weymouth, Poole and Bournemouth. It’s easy to imagine life here as it was portrayed by Thomas Hardy’s in his fictional books, Thomas Hardy’s birthplace is also close by.
    The large, well-maintained, enclosed garden offers plenty of outdoor seating as well as a private swimming pool, and a summerhouse providing accommodation for two guests. The lawned area is ideal for badminton, soft tennis and other garden games. Colts Close Cottage provides an excellent base for cycling, walking and bird watching as well as family days out to local stunning beaches. From the world famous Sandbanks, Weymouth Sea Life Centre, Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World and Brownsea island, there is so much to do nearby. The county town of Dorchester is home to Roman relics, Brewery Square and the pioneering architectural royal development of Poundbury. Weymouth’s sandy beach and historic waterfront harbour are certainly worth a visit. Head over to the Isle of Portland, home to the world famous National Sailing Academy, which was host to the 2012 Olympic Games. Beach 5½ miles. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    "We had a lovely New Year's break and the cottage is lovely but does need a little TLC in some areas. The heating is also a little hazardous as it was coming on in the middle of the night some days.Full equipped with the lovely aga and all the pots and pans you should need but for a house that sleeps 10 a bigger fridge freezer would be ideal."

    "A delightful, cosy cottage near to lots of holiday attractions"
    Elaine ‐ 10 Sep 2019
    "A comfortable cottage which is well equipped. The pool was a good size, and we enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Ideal for our friends and family get together with ages ranging from 5 to 70."
    Fern ‐ 26 Aug 2019
    "A fabulous cottage, plenty of room for us all. The kitchen is very well equipped, there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't there. The garden is beautiful with plenty of room for children to play and a choice of seating areas. It was lovely to have a pool, although unfortunately at the time we were there it was a little too cold for us to use with the little ones - we would definitely have liked to have used this more - the setting is lovely, with loungers and a pool house with a wide range of floaties. Overall we really enjoyed staying here, it's in a very peaceful rural location but within easy reach of Weymouth, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Monkey World. The pictures advertising the cottage reflect it accurately - well worth booking."

    "The cottage, pool and gardens were wonderful and we enjoyed our stay immensely. There are a couple of things I would like to mention. The mattress on the bed in the Summer House could do with replacing as I found I was rolling into the middle of the bed. The kitchen area up by the pool could do with a bit of a spring clean. I did not use the plastic plates and cup up there until I had washed them as they were a little dusty. The welcome pack consists of two bottles of wine, which was lovely but if you are expecting bread, milk etc then you will be disappointed. The gardener was there when we arrived and was very helpful. Giving us information about the property and even offered us veggies out of the green house."

    "Lovely property and great swimming pool, ideally located close to the coast and beautiful countryside."
    Glenn ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    "Plenty of space inside and outside so family could have time on their own; we used the pool every day we where there, close to attractions, shops and butches five minutes away; all in all a fantastic place to get away from it all."
