Detached converted stone former outbuilding in an outstanding coastal location


Wallop's Nod and the former coastguard cottages are situated in a stunning beachfront location off a single track, no through road. The settlement forms a cluster of dwellings with Chesil Beach on the southern boundary and open farmland to the North and East. The property is about 1¼ miles from the Abbotsbury beach car park with its popular cafe and award winning Tropical Gardens. The immensely pretty village of Abbotsbury which has changed little in appearance in centuries is about 2 miles and has an excellent range of facilities including a number of shops and tea rooms, the Ilchester Arms and Swan Inn public houses, art galleries, the famous Swannery, Tythe Barn and an activity farm for children. The Manor Hotel and The Clubhouse restaurant at West Bexington are within walking distance just one mile along the Coastal Path to the west and the property. More extensive facilities are available at the Georgian market town of Bridport (8 miles) with a number of national supermarket chains including a Waitrose and Weymouth (12 miles) has an excellent marina nationally renowned for its sailing facilities together with its charming sandy beach. The County town of Dorchester (13 miles) offers a further excellent range of facilities including a mainline railway station to London Waterloo, as does Weymouth, the journey taking about 2 ½ hours. This beautiful stretch of the coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast, has World Heritage status and offers direct access to the world famous Chesil Beach and Coastal Path. The stretch of beach close to the property is regularly voted to be one of the best fishing beaches in the country.


Wallop's Nod was converted in 2001 having formerly been used as a woodworking design studio. The property has attractive Purbeck stone elevations under a slate roof and is situated to the North of a cluster of other buildings built in 1823, originally as a coastguard station. The main aspect of the house is in an easterly direction with stunning views over fields, Chesil Beach and the sea beyond to Portland, the Fleet and hills behind rising to Abbotsbury Castle at 700 feet. Internally the property is in good decorative order with the main reception rooms and kitchen taking in the delightful views. Upstairs the large room gives access to two balconies and has scope for the buyer to sub-divide the space to provide additional bedroom(s), with en suite bathroom(s), one large reception room, or a combination.
