My husband and I are very fond of hill walking with our two dogs and first became interested in buying a property in the area to go hill walking along the beautiful coastal paths. The area is such a departure from our day to day lives in London yet only two and a half hours away (on a good run) making it possible to use the house for short breaks. Since buying the property in 2005 we have had 4 children and so our hill walking has had to take a bit of a back seat but now we enjoy the property for the beaches and to get away from it all with our young family.

Charlotte Wreaves purchased this cottage in 2005

The Guardhouse appealled to us straight away because of it's history and it's unbelieveable setting. Finding an old character property close to the sea is much harder than you might think and beleive me we have been up and down the coast looking for them. The Guardhouse is also much larger inside than it looks and is a very comfortable home from home with lots of room for all the family.

EXCELLENT COASTAL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
A very comfortable, extremely dog friendly cottage, situated in our opinion, in one of the best coastal positions in Dorset. This is a perfect position to walk from and enjoy the stunning sea and countryside views. The cottage has all the home comforts with a well equipped kitchen and enclosed terrace and garden. There is a fantastic pub nearby which, unfortunately on our visit was closed for refurbishment. This is probably one of the best cottages we have stayed in and would definitely recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you had a pleasant stay at the house and hope to see you back with us soon. I am sorry the Anchor pub was closed when you were staying but can confirm it is open now. www.theanchorinnseatown.co.uk

WORTH THE TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous place, great location a stone's throw from the beach and the pub.There were 6 of us and a dog and plenty of room to spare in the spacious accommodation. The kitchen is extremely well equiped for those who like to cook, although the pub serves food at reasonable prices. Centrally located , Lyme Regis is a must, Dorchester disappointing. There are some lovely villages to explore and the coast is beautiful. Will definitely return. Could be a bit manic in high season, the road to the property is narrow, although there are lots of passing places.

CHRISTMAS 2008 @ THE GUARDHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The cottage website was incredibily accuate, all details and directions were easy to follow, The cottage itself was very homely and comfortable with all you would need for a family including a log burning stove with logs provided. When we arrived there was a fully decorated christmas tree awaiting us, a very lovely touch! Booking and queries were dealt with very quickly and professionally. The local area was stunning with fantastic walks and views, good level of fitness required for the hill walks!!! We had a very memorable break and would highly recomend this property.

Seatown is a charming Hamlet on the South West Dorset Coast. Seatown and the surrounding area are mostly under National Trust control and designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. In addition to the beach and the wonderful walking there are also local shops available in the pretty village of Chideock (1 mile). Bridport (3 miles) is the nearest town, with street markets on Wednesday and Saturday. The beautiful seaside town of Lyme Regis, steeped in history is also within easy reach. In the surrounding area there are plenty of attractions for all tastes from children's farms, water parks and a donkey sanctuary to beautiful gardens and country houses. The opportunity for great walking is huge with many guests returning year after year to explore the area. The famous Golden cap, the highest point on the South Coast is only 45 minutes walk from the house. For those who don't wish to move from Sea town itself there is a small seasonal shop plus a pub that serves excellent meals.

Other Activities: Fossil hunting
