Chestnut Cottage and Chelsea Cottage are the largest of our seven self-catering cottages forming Character Farm Cottages. They are located in the tiny hamlet of Rodden, a short distance from the stunning West Dorset Jurassic coastline between the seaside town of Weymouth and Abbotsbury, famous for its Swannery and sub-tropical gardens. The two homes are about 50m a part so are ideal for a family get together or larger groups of friends. Set on our working Dairy farm which has the Coastal footpath running through it, we have been entertaining guests in our holiday cottages for over 30 years, many returning year after year.
Chestnut Cottage is the larger of the two and sleeps up to 9 people. It includes a downstairs twin bedroom with ensuite wet room suitable for wheelchair users and has an M3 rating. Upstairs are a further 4 bedrooms including the master bedroom which has an ensuite bathroom. All the premium cotton linen and towels are supplied. The cottage has plenty of warmth and character with a large country style kitchen with a farmhouse dining table big enough to sit everyone down for social meal times. The kitchen is very well supplied with all the usual utensils and includes a dishwasher and washing machine. The lounge has plenty of comfy chairs and sofas and a wood burner. A large screen TV and DVD player are included if you wish to relax in the evening with a good film. Free Wifi is also included in the price if you wish to keep up to date with emails and social media! Doors from the lounge open out onto a secluded patio area and enclosed safe garden.
Chelsea cottage sits a stone’s throw away from Chestnut cottage and sleeps 8 people. It also has a ground floor twin bedroom with adjoining shower room and toilet. Upstairs are a further 3 bedrooms and one master bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and also has a large enough table for everyone to sit and enjoy meals together. The lounge has plenty of armchairs and a sofa to sit in comfort in front of the log fire and TV/DVD. French windows open onto a south facing enclosed garden with a patio area to sit and enjoy the sun or an evening barbeque.
We allow dogs in both the cottages (maximum of 2) and with both cottages opening out onto our farmland for walks, they always have an excellent holiday.
