Property Description

Full description

A superb 3 bedroom barn conversion for use as a holiday cottage, retreat or lettings business located on the edge of this sought-after village in West Dorset within easy walking distance of the Jurassic Coast

3 bedrooms, porch, hall, cloakroom, open-plan lounge/dining room and kitchen, bathroom, electric heating, parking for 2 cars or a boat, enclosed south-facing garden, outstanding country and coastal views

SITUATION:  The property is situated in the historic village of Chideock just half a mile down a farm lane with a footpath across fields to the Coastal Path, the beach and popular pub at Seatown with the spectacular Golden Cap towering above.  Much of the coast is controlled by the National Trust and designated as a World Heritage site.  Within the village of Chideock there are useful local amenities including a general store, a sub-Post Office, churches and local inns and a frequent bus service to Bridport.

The market town of Bridport is about 2.5 miles distant and the County Town of Dorchester, about 17 miles, with its main line rail service to London, Waterloo.

THE PROPERTY:  Rowan Cottage is a superb example of a quality barn conversion carried out in recent years to a particularly high standard featuring attractive mellow stone elevations under a slated roof.  Rowan Cottage is end-of-terrace (of three in total) and is set in a lovely garden site enjoying far-reaching southerly views over open countryside to the coast in the distance. At the rear is another single-storey barn conversion and farm buildings nearby.

On the ground floor there is an entrance hall, cloakroom, open-plan lounge/dining room and kitchen with a well fitted custom-built kitchen with integrated units; 3 bedrooms and a quality bathroom on the first floor.  

Rowan Cottage could be used as a family holiday home, but the present owners have made it a very successful holiday lettings business with many repeat bookings and a 4-star rating under the English Visitors' grading system. The use of the property is restricted to second/holiday home or holiday let. There are no restrictions on lettings, the cottage can be used 52 weeks per year, but it cannot be a prime residence.

The Freehold includes an enclosed south-facing garden and a designated parking area for two cars, trailer or boat. There are also communal recreational lawns close by.

DIRECTIONS:  From Bridport, proceed west along the A35 road for approximately 2 miles and Chideock is the first village.  On entering the village, turn left by the speed camera and proceed to Willowhayne Farm.  Turn right after the farm buildings and along the tarmac drive to Rowan at the end which is a drop-off point before proceeding to the car park.
