About Studio Cottage

Studio Cottage is a holiday home where couples or individuals can escape from the modern world and cocoon themselves in comfort. The studio-style property is one of five superb holiday cottages on the Hell Barn estate in North Chideock, each recently renovated and redecorated to feel fresh and modern while retaining the charm and character of a building over 200 years old. Heavily beamed vaulted ceiling and an original stone wall are just two of the many wonderful features that make the Studio Cottage perfect for a relaxing holiday at any time of the year. It's incredibly quiet, being at the end of a country lane, surrounded by fields and farmland.

North Chideock is a tiny hamlet with only one road in and out. Although it's convenient for the A35, which makes it simple to explore the borderland of West Dorset and East Devon, it has no passing traffic, so it is calm and tranquil - exactly the environment you need to relax and recharge. Hell Barn (named after the Greek word for Greece, Hellas) is on Hell Lane, a country lane that narrows into one of the most beautiful holloways in Dorset. A Holloway is an ancient route used by people on foot, on horseback or in carriages. Countless journeys have worn the path down well below ground level, creating what can almost feel like another, more magical world.

Walking and cycling in the landscape around Studio Cottage is a joy. Footpaths and cycleways lead east to Symondsbury and Colmer's Hill, and south to Seatown beach and the South West Coast Path from where you can walk to Eype and West Bay. Bridport is four miles away, Axminster is ten miles, and Dorchester is 18 miles from the cottage, putting everything you need within a leisurely cycle or an easy drive. Golf, fishing, horseriding, swimming, sailing and surfing are all easily accessible. Guests staying at Studio Cottage have shared use of mature gardens that include a stretch of the River Winniford, and a recreational room.

Local attractions include exploring the Jurassic Coast UNESCO World Heritage Site. Finding fossils is a favourite experience of many people who stay at Hell Barn, with the local museums at Lyme Regis and Charmouth offering guided fossil hunts with expert palaeontologists. Visit the Tank Museum at Bovington, see the former homes of Thomas Hardy and T. E. Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia. There are gorgeous gardens, stately homes, and lots of other sights and attractions to give a wide choice of activities in every season.
