Glebe Cottage is a charming home-away-from-home with a traditional thatched roof. With three bedrooms and an enclosed garden, it can comfortably accommodate a family of five with older children, and is also perfect for couples or groups of friends who want to spend time exploring the gorgeous Dorset coast and countryside.
Glebe Cottage is in Bloxworth, a small village that feels peaceful and secluded yet which is convenient for the A35 and close to Wareham Forest and Poole. The village church, St Andrew’s, dates from the 14th Century and is renowned for the carol concert it holds every December. Wareham, Wool and Moreton are a short drive away, where you will find a wide variety of great pubs, independent shops, and fantastic walks and scenery. Fishing, cycling, horse riding and golf are also nearby, and you can even try your hand at coasteering or sailing.
Bloxworth sits nestled between the Dorset AONB, Purbeck Heritage Coast and Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage Site) making it a very comfortable base to explore everything this wonderful region has to offer. A day at the beach could take you to Weymouth, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, Chesil Beach, Bournemouth, or Studland Beach and Nature Reserve. Head inland and discover Dorchester, Wimborne and Blandford Forum. Bovington Tank Museum is a fun and fascinating experience where, if you time your visit right, you can ride in an ATV, while Monkey World is a favourite with children.
Whether your perfect day features ice-cream and sandcastles, solitude and bird watching, or shopping and fantastic food, Glebe Cottage puts you in the heart of the best in the area.
