Property Description

"Set in glorious countryside... not far from the Jurassic Coast"

Lancombe Country Cottages are set in three acres of glorious Thomas Hardy country, in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in west Dorset, close to the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, including the Chesil Beach. The six holiday cottages converted from old barns are set around an attractive courtyard, now a communal lawned area, are all well finished and equipped and provide a relaxing retreat after a day out sightseeing.
All are named after local rivers, offer comfortable accommodation and can be booked individually or together, depending on party numbers. Unwind in the 3 acres of grounds, relax in the heated indoor swimming pool (open every day), perhaps enjoy a sauna, or on a fine day, chill out with a barbecue in a pleasant setting overlooking beautiful Dorset countryside.
Within easy driving distance visitors can explore the stunning Chesil Beach and Jurassic Coast, from Weymouth to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, with its harbour and famous Cobb. Enjoy the many little seaside resorts, spectacular scenic coastal walks, fishing, swimming, fossil hunting and attractions such as Abbotsbury Swannery (where the swans may be fed) and Sub-Tropical Gardens, and Bennetts Water Gardens.
There are many historic houses and gardens to visit including Athelhampon House and Gardens, and Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park, as well as family attractions such as Bovington Tank Museum, Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, Monkey World at Wareham and the Sea Life Centre at Weymouth.
The bustling market and county town of Dorchester, 8 miles, with its 18th-century houses, shops, restaurants and market is worth a visit, as is Weymouth with its Georgian seafront, Blue Flag sandy beach and traditional seaside entertainment. Inland there is the famous Cerne Abbas Giant and the quaint historic abbey town of Sherborne. Enjoy golf, fishing, horse riding and go-karting locally. Convenience store on site. Shops and pubs 2 miles.

Open-plan beamed living/dining room and kitchen area with tiled floor. First floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Single bedroom. Small bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Fantastic holiday with the family. We have twin 2 year olds and the accommodation was well geared for kids. Would definitely recommend it. Sept 2012.
  2. Lovely out of the way complex, brilliant to have sauna and pool so close. Cottage well laid out and equipped. May 2012.
  3. It was a very nice touch that we arrived to find that the owners had left bread, milk, coffee, tea, biscuits and fresh flowers in the cottage. Excellent pub in nearby Cattistock - http://www.foxandhoundsinn.com - not to be missed! Oct 2011.
  4. The property itself was fine but it was a little far from local amenities for us we would next time choose a property closer to a village or a pub within walking distance. Oct 2011.
  5. We had a fantastic family stay at Frome. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. The indoor shared swimming pool kept the kids entertained when the weather was disappointing and the owners were very kind and helpful. Fantastic and we will stay here again. Aug 2011.
  6. Excellent place to stay, all the little extras provided make a big difference - everything from washing up liquid to disposable bbq! Pool lovely, and gardens great - would book again. Aug 2011.
  7. A lovely quaint cottage with a superb welcome of chocolates on the pillows, tea, coffee, biscuits and bread. The owner brought round fresh flowers shortly after we arrived. A great cottage with a lovely clean and well maintained pool. April 2011.
  8. Warm friendly welcome, meticulous attention to detail, (basics such as bread etc, were provided on our arrival), beautiful area. Oct 2010.
  9. Very pleasant place. Oct 2010.
  10. There is a whole collection of lovely cottages here, with a lovely heated indoor pool and sauna. There is a huge area for children to play. The cottages are lovely and clean, and come with a little welcome pack (very welcome!). The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We were so impressed we have already booked a couple of the lodges for a family Christmas next year. 100% perfect!!!! Thanks for a lovely stay! Sep 2010.
  11. The kitchen was very well equipped and clean, as were all the rooms. The swimming pool was great. There was a welcome pack of milk, bread and tea/coffee/sugar sachets which was very nice. We had free run of the owners land to walk freely. Sept 2010.
