    Emma greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us all the Coach House had to offer The personal touches of a Christmas tree, home made Christmas cake, home made blackberry jam (both delicious), tin of tea, chocolates and a pint of milk in the fridge was an excellent start our stay There was a folder with all the information needed to operate all the different gadgets and recommendations of places to visit and eat out which was useful The Coach House was tastefully decorated and the kitchen was fitted out with high quality equipment We really enjoyed relaxing in front of the log burner after being blown about in the gales and rain that we experienced, but that was soon forgotten in the cosy environment Due to the inclement weather we were unable to enjoy the outside sitting area which was a shame as it would have been great to have star watched in the lovely space We appreciated the large soft fluffy Egyptian towels that had been left for us to use And we liked the quirkiness of the upside down house where we went downstairs to bed which we found to be comfortable We even were treated to an owl hooting to us one morning - which was fab to hear Thank you Emma The Coach House was perfect for our stay And we would recommend a visit to the beautiful Dorset and the cosy welcoming Coach House at Lackington Farm

    Thank you for leaving such lovely feedback reflecting your stay with us over Christmas. I’m absolutely delighted you had an enjoyable stay in between the weather! We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Coach House. Happy New Year. Kind regards, Emma. Property Owner

The property

The Coach House is a lovely 200yr old, reverse level accommodation in White Lackington, Dorset, close to Piddletrenthide.

This delightful Coach House surrounded by countryside and close to the Jurassic Coast, offers three guests all they need for a self-catering holiday in Dorset, including off road parking for two cars, a private courtyard, and fantastic amenities.

Two carefully designed bedrooms, a double and a small double, are located on the ground level, along with a spotless bathroom featuring Villeroy and Bosch tiling, mosaic floors, and a walk-in shower.

After your coastal expedition, freshen up and unwind before moving upstairs to the living spaces.

Locate the bright and cheerful shaker-style kitchen, where you can prepare your favourite home-cooked meals using the electric oven, induction hob and microwave.

Serve your suppers at the table for four in the living/dining area, or why not dine outside in the evening sun?

The courtyard, a beautiful, south-facing, secluded space with rattan chairs to enjoy the sun all day, is accessed via an oak stable door.

After supper, unwind in the sitting area, which features cushioned sofas and a flatscreen TV with Roku streaming media player; choose your favourite film and unwind by the soft warmth of the woodburning stove.

Start your holiday by exploring the local area, which includes the village of Piddletrenthide, which has a village shop and The Poachers Inn, as well as The Thimble Inn gastropub, which is close to The Coach House if you want to take a break from the kitchen.

The Tudor house of Athelhampton House & Gardens near Puddletown, the unusual National Trust monument of the Cerne Giant, and Badger Watch Dorset, where you may view a variety of local species, are all within a short drive.

Alternatively, spend the day in Dorchester, which has so much to offer, including Borough Gardens, the Dorset Museum, and Max Gate, the former house of author and poet Thomas Hardy.

You'll have stunning land and coast to explore in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including Chesil Beach, the lively coastal town of Weymouth, and the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast.

For a great vacation with your loved ones, book your next trip in Dorset at The Coach House.

About the location

PIDDLETRENTHIDE

Dorchester 8 miles.

The pretty West Dorset village of Piddletrenthide can be found in the quaintly named Piddle Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only 8 miles from Dorchester, situated off the main road on a private track. The village is surrounded by glorious countryside, with direct access to public footpaths abounding in superb walks. Interestingly the young Thomas Hardy, as an architect's assistant, worked on the parish church. A great base for touring, there is much to see and do within a short drive of this picturesque area, including the world-famous Cerne Abbas giant, where you can find the nearest shop for the essentials, whilst the bustling market town of Dorchester, with its array of interesting shops, pubs, restaurants and museums is well worth a visit. Within easy reach is the family friendly seaside resort of Weymouth and the Jurassic coast, and also dramatic Portland, venue for the 2012 Olympic sailing events. With Bournemouth and Poole only 40 minutes away, this is altogether a super holiday destination at any time of the year.

Note: The entrance to the driveway is 308cms wide on a country lane.
Note: Property is unable to accept any children under 6yrs of age (this includes infants)
