Set in the heart of a private country estate in West Dorset, Goose Run Cottage is so secluded that you probably won’t hear any traffic or see many other people at all while you’re here. Relax and focus on the birdsong all around you. Stroll through the wild flower meadows and the woodland, or climb the tree house and keep your eyes peeled for the birds and the wildlife. Then sit out on the patio as dusk descends. The lack of light pollution makes the stars seem like you could reach out and touch them.
The heart of the property is the open plan living area, with a well-equipped kitchen and a breakfast bar at one end, and a living room with large TV and comfy settees at the other. The whole of the ground floor has underfloor heating, keeping you warm and snug whatever the weather. The living space opens out onto the private garden with its panorama of the estate grounds. If you enjoy looking out onto the scenery, the master bedroom on the first floor also has a feature window with stunning views of the lake.
With so much beautiful landscape to explore right on your doorstep, you might not want to venture too far during your stay. But if you’d like to stretch your legs, you’ll find a charming thatched pub just one mile’s walk away. If you decide to venture further afield, you’re just a short drive away from some of the South West’s best destinations, including Bridport and Lyme Regis. After a day exploring, you can come back to your own private hideaway and relax in comfort.
