Overview
Farmhouse -
5 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Dorchester, Dorset, England
The Lodge offers the most wonderful, relaxed, rural accommodation for up to 9 (plus 3) people. It is positioned high on the beautiful Dorset downs commanding spectacular views south towards the coast.

The property is set at the heart of the Wrackleford Estate only a few minutes drive from the Jurassic coast at Weymouth. Originally built as a private hunting lodge it has large spacious rooms, with quirky architectural details giving for a unique and stunning building.

Internally the property is large - centered around the main living / dining room with its huge inglenook fireplace and south facing views. Open fires are a trademark of this property with a large fireplace dominating the snooker room. Each of the bedrooms have been tastefully furnished for your stay with everything that you may need.

A lovely spacious very different property that sited all the family. Very quiet with beautiful views and interesting walks. Everyone enjoyed the experience and our toddler loved the freedom the house and garden provided. Well equipped for all our needs. A talking point for months...More
