Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A beautiful Lodge situated down a Dorset country lane. Set amongst fields, the tranquil, peaceful surroundings make the accommodation perfect for those who want to get away. Devoid from light pollution, the sweeping skies make it an ideal spot for star gazing. The Jurassic Coast is only a short drive, with beautiful coastal walks. A perfect break!
*We personally clean to ensure our guests can expect the highest enhanced cleaning routine.

The space
The studio is newly fitted throughout. The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed, contemporary oak hanging rail, stool and chest of drawers. In the living room the sofa converts into a sofa bed, table, chairs, console table, Smart TV, WiFi and very efficient oil central heating. The kitchen is well equipped with an induction hob, cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The bathroom has a large 1700mm shower with rain head and detachable head, wash basin, loo and heated towel rail.
Outside, the decking offers spectacular views. Deer, partridge, pheasant, swallows and house martins can all be seen. There are garden chairs, benches and a table. It is not overlooked and very private despite being in the grounds of Andrea's home. Your own parking is immediately next to the studio with a utility room housing a washing machine and dryer.

Where you’ll be

Cruxton, England, United Kingdom

Cruxton is a small hamlet with a handful of dwellings. The river Frome meanders its way through the fields next to the Lodge. In the opposite direction, a mile down the lane is the village of Maiden Newton with a newsagent, fish and chip shop, garage, restaurant and a shop which supplies fabulous local produce. The main line station runs trains to Bath, Bristol and Weymouth. Pubs don't get better than the Fox and Hounds in Cattistock or the Saxon Arms in Stratton. There are many wonderful places to eat, not least The Riverside at West Bay, Summer Lodge Hotel, The Hive Beach Cafe, The Club House, Hix Oyster and Fish House and even an Indian takeaway van every other Thursday in Maiden Newton!
The Jurassic coast line is a 20 minute drive. Only 8 miles away is the old town of Dorchester with a market, cinema, coffee shops, Waitrose and Lidl to name a few. Explore West Bay where Broadchurch was filmed and discover the places that inspired Thomas Hardy's classic novels.

I work from home as a milliner and illustrator. When I'm not working inside, I'm either out on the bike, walking our dog or gardening. We have a large garden with a vegetable patch and fruit cage which keeps us busy! Our family and animals love our home and the beautiful Dorset countryside that surrounds us.
