North End Farmhouse (ref W44194) and The Old Cricket Pavilion (ref UKC496) are set in a wonderful picturesque location in beautiful west Dorset, within an environmentally friendly farming area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in an idyllic location, these properties are nestled just north of Chideock, 3 miles from the stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coast and 4 miles from Bridport. Also, there is a world archeological site within a 20-minute walk from the properties. The large 14th-century thatched farmhouse offers delightful holiday accommodation. Reached by a no-through road and within a scenic area, families can enjoy a haven away from it all, but be near to many attractions. It offers a large living room, formerly the great hall, with a huge stone mantled Tudor fireplace with open fire. There is a hidden stone spiral staircase and a snug with a wood burner in an inglenook.
The Old Cricket Pavilion, formerly located at the Symondsbury Cricket Ground, offers a romantic retreat for two and enjoys panoramic views over the countryside. Guests can enjoy superb country walking from the doorstep, or 3 miles away on the Jurassic Coast with its lovely scenery. Delve into some fossil hunting, swimming or fishing.
Slightly further is the characterful fishing port of West Bay, scene of the TV series ‘Broadchurch’, where you can go boating or sea fishing. Bridport, formerly a rope making town, with its restaurants, shops and markets is worth a stroll around, or the jewel in the crown of west Dorset is Lyme Regis, with its famous Cob, harbour, sandy beach and quaint shops. Visitors can spend days exploring this coastline from Sidmouth, Seaton and Lyme Regis on to Portland and Weymouth, or inland visiting many attractions in Dorchester. There are historic houses to enjoy such as Forde Abbey and Gardens, and within easy driving the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum. Slightly further is Glastonbury Tor and maybe even Wells cathedral city and Cheddar Gorge. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
