Former coastguard s cottage sleeping six guests in four bedrooms, offering spectacular sea views and a spacious lawned garden, located on St Alban s Head on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula.
This property enjoys a stunning clifftop location with spectacular sea views and is situated walking distance from the secluded cove at Chapman s Pool. This quiet cove is a popular spot for strong swimmers as well as fossil hunters, thanks to the area s rich geological history. A more traditional family friendly beach can be found in Swanage, which is located a short drive from the property and offers a wide sandy beach, beach front entertainment, a restored Victorian pier, and a good choice of cafes and restaurants. Once two separate cottages, this property has been thoughtfully renovated to create a spacious holiday retreat in a stunning clifftop vantage, from which sea views can be viewed from the majority of the rooms including all bedrooms. Upon arrival, guests have a choice of rooms in which to unwind after their journey, as there are two separate lounges. The first of these is a light filled room offering two sofas and a large armchair, TV, heaters and a set of doors from here lead through to the second lounge: a cosy space with another open fire, toys and games. The cottage s generously sized kitchen is a well equipped room where guests will find everything they need to make themselves at home including an AGA oven, hob, microwave, small air fryer, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Leading on from the kitchen you will find a dining area complete with a wood burning stove. A convenient cloakroom with WC can also be found on the ground floor and the door to the leading to the rear garden. Whilst the bathroom with its shower over sized bath and WC can be found upstairs on the first floor alongside the property s four bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have been simply and elegantly furnished to create restful retreats with views across the countryside or out to sea, allowing guest to wake up to simply stunning views. The master bedroom is a king size room, in addition to which there are two double rooms and one twin. Outside, the property benefits from a spacious, lawned garden which is fully enclosed by a wall and a gate. This is an idyllic place to relax and play and is furnished with table and chairs, however guests should be aware that the gate is not secured and there is open access to the clifftop beyond the gate, therefore children should not be left alone in the garden. There is parking for three cars just outside the cottage. Please note that the property is approached via a 1.5 mile long unmade track, and is not suitable for cars with low ground clearance.
