Rural peace in a spacious, well-equipped stone cottage with delightful views. A wonderful place to experience the English countryside at its best.
Four bedrooms - 2 double, 1 twin, 1 single. 'One of the doubles is on the ground-floor next to a bathroom, so ideal for anyone who does not like stairs.' 

Log fire, television, video and hi-fi in the living room; Aga (plus an ordinary electric cooker too) in the kitchen; Antique refectory table in the dining room; Wendy house in the garden (a delight for young children); and a funky master bathroom.

There is off-road parking for 2-3 cars and a garage. The garden is quiet and its main attraction is a pleasant patio and lawn area looking staight out over fields to hills in the middle distance. A very pleasant spot to sit and soak in the peace of the countryside.

Greygles is situated on the edge of a friendly village with an extensive farm shop and well-known pub restaurant.

This is the country of Hardy novels, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just off the Wessex Ridgeway walkers' path, set in the gentle hills and woods of central Dorset. The 'Jurassic' coast with its dramatic cliffs and coves, as well as ancient abbeys and castles, wonderful gardens, lovely old towns, and even a tank museum, are all within a half hour drive.

Rentals are normally for one week from Saturday to Saturday but outside peak season periods we are happy to discuss alternative start-days and shorter lets (3 nights minimum). Children are very welcome, pets are by mutual discussion, but we do say no to smoking (after all, my main job is running the lung charity, TB Alert)

Greygles is an old Dorset word for the bluebells that abound in the local woods in Spring.
