The property

Loscombe Retreat is a delightful escape in the country, yet only 4 miles from Weymouth.

Situated next door to the owner’s house, this purpose built cottage is all on one level and makes sure you get to enjoy the most breath-taking views over the Dorset countryside and towards Hardy’s monument.

You will have sole use of the acre of orchard abutting woodland where you will be thrilled with the space and views of the countryside right on your doorstep.

Wander the beautiful orchard and enjoy an apple fresh from the tree in season, or stop and sit a while and see what local wildlife comes out to play.

Through the front door you will find a pretty sitting room with TV, views over the rolling hills and double doors onto the patio where you can enjoy a relaxing drink or meal together.

The country kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook up and enjoy a delicious meal together and you are welcomed with a continental breakfast hamper.

The master bedroom has views over the rolling hills, an en-suite shower room and is the perfect place to relax and recharge.

The cosy twin bedroom is tucked away at the back and offers full flexibility with either twin singles or a zip and link double bed, next to this you will find the family bathroom that’s a great place to hide away for a bit of 'me time' in the lovely new bath.

Although this retreat is surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside you are only 4 miles from Weymouth’s award winning golden sanded beach, and seaside resort with its restaurants, cafes and bars.

Chesil beach can be found only 2 miles away and from here you can join the South West Coast path and walk in either direction, towards Abbotsbury or Portland.

Drive (or walk) on to Portland and from the top, take in views along the Jurassic Coastline and see if you can spot Loscombe Retreat in the distance.

You can also find the National Sailing Academy here and all manner of exciting and relaxing water sports.

The beautiful old Abbotsbury village is just over 5 miles away.

Take a walk up to Saint Catherine’s Chapel, built by the monks in the 14 century as a place of retreat.

Stroll through the picture postcard street and sample local produce.

There is also the Swannery, Gardens and a Children’s play barn here.

Loscombe Retreat is perfect for couples and families who want to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy the delights of the Dorset Countryside.

About the location

Buckland Ripers

Weymouth 4.2 miles; Portland; 10.7 miles; Abbotsbury 5.6 miles; Dorchester 6.7 miles; West Bay/Bridport 15 miles

Nestling quietly just off the road that runs from the outskirts of the parish of Broadwey and the connecting road to Portesham, lies the tiny village of Buckland Ripers. Seemingly tucked away in the middle of nowhere, it is one of Dorset's hidden treasures. Located just 3.9 miles from Chickerell, a delightful suburb of Weymouth that offers village shops, pubs and restaurants as well as being serviced by the local bus service. Buckland Ripers is situated just 4.3 miles from Weymouth’s award winning beach with its golden sands and shallow water. There is also a lively harbour with restaurants, cafés and bars as well as a town centre with all the local and high street amenities. The Isle of Portland is just over 10 miles away and offers spectacular views over the Jurassic coast line and the famous Portland Bill lighthouse.
