DORSET. CHARMING, LATE 18TH CENTURY COTTAGE IN TYPICAL DORSET VILLAGE SLEEPS 4-6

Winfrith Newburgh Cottage Rental Photos and Description

An outstandingly equipped & comfortable cottage set in a conservation area

Thornicks House is a truly lovely, deceptively spacious four bedroom terraced cottage dating from the late 18th century and situated in the lovely village of Winfrith Newbrgh. The owners have spared no expense in presenting and equipping it to the highest level. It is set on a quiet country lane (cul-de sac) off the main village street. It was originally owned by the village baker, and the cottage next door was the bakehouse itself. There is a large field and stream between the lane and the main part of the village. The cottage itself opens directly onto the lane. The spacious living room has a bay window and window seat, but its focal point is a large old-beamed brick fireplace. The beautifully fitted, hand-painted 'Smallbone' style kitchen opens (double doors) onto the patio and secluded garden. The other main room downstairs is a characterful dining room with its original flagstones. An old windy staircase leads upstairs to the four bedrooms and bathroom.

Winfrith Newburgh: Winfrith is a typical Dorset Village, with a lovely......church, Manor House and picturesque main street full of thatched and period cottages and houses. There is a pub at a village shop and post office. Dorchester and Weymouth are the two nearest large towns, where you will find supermarkets, many other shops as well as restaurants catering for all tastes and pockets. There are an abundance of fine country pubs in easy reach of Winfrith, many serving fine ales and excellent pub fare.

COUNTRY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This is a delightful cottage in a pretty village, with local shops and pubs.
It's situated in a quiet lane with an easy walk to open countryside.
We found it very comfortable, warm and well quipped and it has a lovely atmosphere. The large garden is lovely during summer months to eat outside. The cottage is within easy reach of local town and beaches. We have stayed many times and will return.

OUTSTANDING COTTAGE FOR A FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Thornicks House over Christmas and had a really wonderful time. The owners were so helpful in making sure we had everything we wanted to really enjoy our Xmas. The pictures on the website don't do the house justice as much of the cottage has been redecorated recently. The colour scheme is so imaginative and the decoration really sets it apart from the norm. We felt rather spoilt. The house is beautifully warm and comfortable, equipped with everything we could possibly need. The Dorset coastline is so beautiful for walks and country pubs. Lulworth Cove is very close to Thornicks House (about a 10 mins drive) and we found lots of lovely pubs which we have suggested should be recommended on the website! The only negative was the electric log effect fire in the living room but the owners tell us that this is being replaced in January by either a log-burner or open log gas fire!! This is a marvellous property to rent and we shall certainly be coming back in the summer.

GORGEOUS, WELL FURNISHED AND EQUIPPED HOME

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this Dorset property in October and were so impressed by the quality of the accommodation. The cottage is situated in a quiet lane in this lovely area and is very close to the coast and wonderful Dorset walks. Local pubs and eateries were fantastic.
The house itself was even better than the description, far more imaginatively presented than other holiday cottages we have used, with some quality furnishings and equipment. It was warm and cosy during a couple of not so nice days, and the kitchen was beautifully equipped. The owners were very helpful and provided us with lots of additional information before our stay.
We will certainly come back here and would recommend to anyone, families or couples. A great experience. Well done, owners.

Thornicks House is situated in a conservation area in the heart of Thomas Hardy's Wessex. It is but a few minutes drive from Dorset's famous Jurassic coastline, most notably Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge Bay, Chessil Beach and Durdle Door. 20 mins drive to the west is the popular Georgian seaside town of Weymouth, with its lovely sandy family beach and old harbour. The locals are most excited that Weymouth/Portland will be hosting the 2112 sailing Olympics. A 30mn drive to the east takes you to the fabulous safe white beaches of Sandbanks (National Trust), from where a short car ferry trip takes you to Poole and Bournemouth. Dorset, of course, is famous for its beautiful countryside, old villages and historical monuments; Abbotsbury (Tropical Gardens and Swannery), Cofe Castle, the lost village of Tyneham, Milton Abbas (village and abbey), the Cerne Abbas Giant and Morton, the resting place of T.E.Lawrence, are all within easy reach.

Notes:
The cottage is furnished with period and antique furnishings including some antique pine. As the photos show, it has been imaginatively decorated throughout, each room having its own personality. The old staircase is quite steep and windy and therefore probably not suitable for very elderly or infirm clients. The front door opens directly onto the lane and and open fields over to the village. A pathway across the fields leads to the village shop and Post Office and the Church.
