The property

… in the heart of Chideock, two doors from a good food pub and across the road from the footpath to the beach, a large,beautiful, thatched, detached former farmhouse, complete with own private indoor heated swimming pool (28’ x 14’ x 4’ deep, shower and loo). The house is light and spacious, retaining traditional Dorset character in beams, fireplaces and some low lintels, complemented by contemporary touches adding style and comfort.

At the back, steps up to walled garden with patio (picnic tables, barbecue), lawn, small games barn (table tennis) and sun terrace. To the front, a small garden separates it from the A35 Charmouth to Bridport road.

From parking area, stepping stones across lawn and steps down to door into utility room (washer-drier, freezer, larder fridge) with space for coats/boots. Two living rooms, one with open fire and the other with woodburner and TV/DVD. Long, easy-to-work-in kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, gas range-style double oven/7-ring cooker, breakfast table/stools for 4 in alcove). Dining room with long table and doors to kitchen and living room. Small office. Downstairs bathroom (suite).

Two staircases (stairgates) from small hall and kitchen up to large landing/room with chess set and TV/DVD. Off this, a double (5’ four-poster bed) with low doorway to en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath); another double with en suite shower-room (suite); three twin, one with en suite shower-room (suite); and a small single. From this single room, very steep stairs up to another twin bedroom under the eaves (unsuitable for young children). Bathroom (suite).

Five yards from the back door, a pretty little detached converted creamery with two bedrooms – downstairs, a double with four-poster bed and step up to en suite shower-room (suite); upstairs, via outside steps, another double with en suite bathroom (suite).

Damages Deposit £200. Professional catering available. A friendly, welcoming house with fun swimming pool, ideal for celebratory gatherings and in a great spot for discovering the ‘Jurassic Coast’, with a good fossil-hunting beach and fabulous views across Dorset and Devon from Golden Cap hill within walking distance.

Many thanks to the owners and to Helpful Holidays for providing exactly what we wanted at Park Farmhouse. * a place in lovely country where 8 friends could spend a few days exploring, walking, trying the local pubs, talking, laughing and trying to improve their bridge * a welcoming, comfortable, well maintained and extremely well equipped home * spacious sitting rooms, dining room and kitchen and the bonus of the lovely swimming pool No wonder we so enjoyed ourselves and are already planning for next year.
