Clayhanger Lodge holiday home details

Clayhanger Lodge is a spacious, converted detached barn which offers spectacular views of the surrounding Dorset countryside and the sea beyond. This excellent, light-filled property has been furnished with a mix of traditional and contemporary styling and comfortably accommodates up to six guests with three large en-suite bedrooms all equipped with televisions.

There is an open-plan, split-level kitchen; sitting room and dining area; and the fully equipped kitchen has a range cooker, an American style fridge-freezer with filtered water and an ice-maker. Additionally there is a dishwasher, washer/dryer and a microwave. The expansive sitting area is bright with a wooden floor and original beams adding character to this smart property. Comfortable sofas invite you to sit down and relax in front of a 43" smart television and bluetooth speaker, and the large dining table is perfectly positioned for enjoying the delightful views through large glass doors which sit on both sides of the living space. There is a convenient ground floor cloakroom and an additional boot room too.

The three generous en-suite bedrooms all have wonderful views, with two providing super-king size beds. The third bedroom is a twin with zip and link beds that can be made into a super-king bed upon request. Egyptian cotton bed sheets, goose feather and down duvets and pillows are provided for an added touch of luxury.

The property has a private raised garden terrace with teak dining furniture and during the Summer months a charcoal barbecue is provided for guests.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • The pretty and historic village of Abbotsbury is situated on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and is known for its Swannery, Subtropical Gardens and surviving Abbey buildings, including St Catherine's Chapel, a 14th century pilgrimage chapel that stands on a hill between the village and the coast. This evocative landmark was built by the monks of the nearby Abbotsbury Abbey. It’s a steep walk, but the views are certainly worth it.
  • The village has two pubs, an excellent butcher, art and craft galleries and quaint tea rooms. The world’s only Swannery is located on the outskirts providing the unique experience of being able to feed the mute swans, and in May and June the newborn cygnets are a very popular attraction.
  • The village also has a Children’s Farm where there are lots of animals for children to meet and feed, pony rides, goat racing, and playing in the soft play pirate ship amongst many adventures to be had.
  • To the east is the popular seaside town of Weymouth with its famous Georgian seafront, sandy beach with Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides. There is a historic 17th century harbour, surrounded by pubs and restaurants and the Sea Life Centre.
  • The National Trust's Hive Beach at Burton Bradstock and its café are only a short drive away along the coast road with its stunning and panoramic views.
  • Further west is the bustling market town of Bridport, and other popular resorts of West Bay, Eype, Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Fans of the TV drama Broadchurch might recognise some of the locations in the area.
  • The Lyme Regis Museum displays some of the most fascinating finds along the coastline, and while you’re in Lyme Regis you simply have to walk along The Cobb, an iconic harbour made famous in The French Lieutenant’s Woman.
  • The county town of Dorchester is only a 20 minute drive away with its large selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, museums and two cinemas.
