A delightfully situated holiday cottage on the edge of this thriving village in West Dorset surrounded by beautiful countryside with walks in every direction. A perfect place to enjoy a peaceful break yet within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the coastal towns. The cottage is on the site of a former farm along with a small group of similar properties, converted from barns and outbuildings to holiday homes about 10 years ago. Internally, on the ground floor is an open plan living/dining/kitchen space with doors leading to the south facing garden. On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, one set out as a double and the other with two single beds and a bathroom fitted with both bath and separate shower cubicle. Outside, there is parking space for three vehicles to the front and an enclosed south facing garden at the back, where there are lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The property would make an ideal peaceful home away from home and can also be holiday let to generate income if desired.

Thorncombe village lies in the western corner of Dorset close to the Devon and Somerset borders and just 11 miles inland from the popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis on the Jurassic coast.
