Overview

About the property

Secluded high quality cottage near Lulworth Cove

Little Glebe has been converted to a very high specification, and has been designed to provide superb cosy country accommodation for either four adults or a family. Solid oak has been used throughout to give a luxurious feel alongside high quality furnishings and fittings. There is central heating throughout. The property has its own courtyard and garden which ensures complete privacy from the main house. there is an additional small lawned garden There is a barbecue, table and chairs.

On the ground floor a spacious hallway and boot room gives plenty of room for outdoor clothes and muddy boots. The boot room also houses a washing machine.

There are two double bedrooms downstairs, each with an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom One has a shower and Bedroom Two has a bath with shower over. We thought a bath would be welcome after long coastal and country walks or if you have small children.

Bedroom One has two singles that can be converted into a king size – just tell us which you prefer before your stay. Bedroom two has a double bed.

Both rooms have private garden views.

On the first floor you will find a large open plan room with character beams and French windows that open onto endless country views across the fields. There is a well equipped modern galley kitchen with a dishwasher, fridge, cooker and microwave, as well as a dining area. The far end provides a cosy living area with a gorgeous warming log burner and a large TV, DVD player and music centre. Bring your own music, films and books or feel free to choose from the library we provide.

Little Glebe is fully centrally heated. Cotton bed linen and large fluffy towels are provided.

About Sue Hyde

We are Peter and Sue Hyde. Peter's family are local farmers who have lived and worked in this area for seven generations. we have two adult sons who both continue in farming and countryside vocations.

Sue Hyde purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Sue Hyde chose Winfrith Newburgh

Our lovely home in Winfrith Newburgh sits above the village in airy, secluded beech woods. We built Little Glebe to be a holiday home that could share this superb location, but also retain it's own sense of peace and privacy. Then we furnished it with soft coastal colours and natural oak throughout to make the inside feel really special!

In November 2017 we have added three new Velux windows upstairs to ensure greater headroom within the sloping eaves.

What makes this cottage unique

Little Glebe is an 'upside down' house, with two cosy en suite bedroom downstairs. This enables visitors to enjoy sweeping views across the surrounding countryside from the upstairs French windows.

Our sheep, hens and dogs complete the delightful rural environment, and deer, foxes, owls and badgers are regular, but shy nightime visitors.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

The external shots don't really do the cottage justice, we loved it both inside and out, lovely country noises of the sheep and the rooks and a real feeling of being away from it all. The cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped, spotlessly clean and a great home from home for a break in Dorset. We plan to be back at some point.

Owner's Response: Thank you. You were very welcome guests, and it was really useful to hear your views on some of our local pubs and restaurants. The Wise Man, The Cove Hotel and the Anchor at Seatown all seem to have gone down well. Our lovely lambs will miss their audience!!

Cosy cottage, clean and tidy

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location near Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. Cottage ideal for 2 people, although the two bedrooms both have en-suite bathrooms, the upstairs living area is rather small.

Fanastic weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

Little Glebe is well kitted out, warm and comfortable with loads of wood kindling for the log burner - a really welcoming place. Superb base for visiting the area. Loads of information provided by the owners who were friendly and helpful. We were there in Feb with clear night skies - amazing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such lovely words. We try really hard to make Little Glebe peaceful, cosy and comfortable and it's a real bonus to know we got it right for you. We very much enjoyed having you both as guests...

Lulworth Cove
Car: recommended

Winfrith Newburgh is just two miles from Lulworth Cove on the stunning World Heritage Jurassic coastline and South West coast path. It is nine miles from the county town of Dorchester and 18 miles from the more bustling conurbations of Poole and Bournemouth. There is a friendly local post office/village store and three pubs nearby. If the weather’s good you may not get further than the local coastline and beaches, but then you’d miss out on other fabulous locations such as Corfe Castle, the Cerne Abbas Giant, the Tank Museum, Monkey World, the Blue Pool, Swanage Railway, Sherborne Abbey, Portland Bill and many others…
