Travel cot and highchair. Welcome pack. ¾-acre natural unspoilt garden with sitting out area and garden furniture. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note There are 3 steps from the back door to the rear of the property.\n Fossils’ End is a single-storey barn conversion ideal for a rural retreat within the heart of the Dorset countryside. Accessed via a rough track the property is located in Chickerell close to the Georgian town of Weymouth which boasts a golden sandy beach picturesque harbour and is ideally positioned along the UNESCO Jurassic Coastline. It borders the owners’ home and is perfect for couples family and friends who wish to enjoy the beautiful surrounding area of Dorset. The name Fossils’ End derives itself from local fossils that were found in nearby Dorset villages which have been entwined into the barn including a sea anemone found in Nottington and a petrified wood fossil found in nearby Charminster. The property offers an open plan living space with electric fire and French doors opening on to the front of the property with a large unspoilt garden not enclosed. The rear of the property offers some lovely Dorset countryside views and walking areas.\nThe UNESCO Jurassic Coastline is 3 miles away with highlights such as Chesil Beach to explore while Abbotsbury West Bay Bridport Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are slightly further away. The Jurassic Coastline is home to over 300 coastal country walks offering some breath taking views over Dorset’s 200 million year old shoreline. The county town known as Thomas Hardy’s town of Dorchester is home to Roman relics Brewery Square and the pioneering architectural royal development of Poundbury. Take a trip to the Isle of Portland host to the 2012 Olympic Games and home to the world famous National Sailing Academy.\nHeading out west from Chickerell is a delight where the outstanding views and ‘chocolate-box’ villages can be admired. The swannery at Abbotsbury provides the opportunity to observe the resident colony of mute swans which has been in existence since the 14th century. From late May visitors can walk around the nesting area observing the cygnets at close quarters. Another attraction at Abbotsbury are the sub-tropical gardens which flourish in a site protected from the cold winds. Here you can find species rare to Britain such as Japanese camellias and Caucasian wingnut.\nIt’s a great location with so many popular tourist attractions close by including Monkey World Bovington Tank Museum and the National Trust’s Corfe Castle all of which all make great family days out. Slightly further afield you can visit Swanage Poole and Poole Quay. Poole harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world and from here you can take the ferry to Sandbanks or Brownsea Island Nature Reserve with its red squirrels. Why not take the ferry for the day to visit the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey? Lyme Regis is also another hot spot to visit known locally as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’ and is a great place for searching for fossils found in the cliffs and along the beach. Beach 3 miles. Shop pub and restaurant ¾ mile. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10634070.jpg UK10051

    We really enjoyed our stay. Helen the host is a very nice lady. Didn’t bother us after the initial arrival but we knew where she was if we needed anything. The property was spotless and had everything you’ll need for your stay. The welcome pack (including a gift of processco for our wedding anniversary) was a very nice touch. Even poo bags and biscuits for our little dog. To make it perfect for us I would have liked larger bath towels and softer pillows but that’s just our personal choice so not a criticism. We would definitely stay again.

    Fossils End is a very spacious cottage and is lovely and quiet. It is well stocked with everything you need for a holiday cottage and is very comfortable. It would be ideal for people with dogs or children as there is a good sized garden which is enclosed.Helen the owner is very helpful and the welcome pack on arrival was very much appreciated.

    One of the best places we have stayed in this country. Lovely welcome from the owner with home baked cake and our dogs were also made to feel welcome with biscuits. Everything was to a high standard and very well equipped kitchen. Wished we could have stayed for long and would recommend to family and friends.
