          Car: Necessary

          West Dorset is a unique area with stunning scenery and a rich history. The famous Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site. The drive from the village along the coast to Bridport is simply stunning. The famous Abbotsbury Swannery is a 10 minute drive or 1.5 hours walk from the property. Attractions such as Lulworth Castle and Cove, Hardy’s Cottage, Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World, Stourhead, Sherborne, are all within 30-60 minutes’ drive.

          The Area

          Located just outside the beautiful coastal village of Langton Herring, only 10 minutes’ drive away are the sandy beaches at Weymouth, rated among the top 5 beaches in the UK. The National Sailing Centre is 15 minutes’ drive. West Bay and its beach are 20 minutes’ drive. Dorchester with its new Brewery Square development is 20 minutes’ drive and offers numerous restaurants and a brand new Odeon Cinema. The other main attractions of West Dorset are numerous and all within 30-45 minutes’ drive. There are many places to eat including the local pub, The Elm Tree, a 10 minute walk from the house. Here they serve good food and specialise in seafood. Our favorite places to eat include Hive Beach Café (Burton Bradstock – 20 mins), The Crab House Café (Wyke Regis – 15 mins), The Manor House, West Bexington – 15 mins), Yarbury Cottage, (Lower Bockhampton – 20 minutes)

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: Owners Julian and Jill welcome you to the Manor House..

          Why the Owner Chose Sydling St. Nicholas:
          A unique house in a quiet location with beautiful scenery. The walking in the area and the views of the coast are simply stunning. The village is unspoiled and the surrounding country teeming with wildlife. It really is an oasis but within easy reach of major attractions.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Seclusion and peace but only a 10 minute walk to the village pub! Lying by the pool in our own little eco-climate (we have a palm tree in the garden). Watching the sun go down over 60 miles of coast only 100 yards from our home. Getting away from it all and wanting nothing when we're home.
