Cordwainer’s Cottage

Built in the 17th century, Cordwainer’s Cottage is a former shoemaker’s workshop set in a secluded village of Winfrith Newburgh. The cottage is ideal for a small family or nature lovers, seeking a tranquil escape close to the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

The cottage has been lovingly updated to provide a fantastic holiday home, but still retains some period features such as original wooden beams, a log burner, character uneven cob walls, quirky shaped rooms, and original bread oven.

Cordwainer’s cottage offers four guests everything they need for a self-catering holiday in Dorset, including two comfortable bedrooms, a large garden with plenty of space for everyone to relax, and excellent amenities.

On the ground floor you can relax in the lounge/dining area, which features an original beamed ceilings, leather furniture, smart TV and a crackling woodburning stove. There is also a separate dining table to provide the perfect spot to enjoy your favourite home-cooked meals.

A well-equipped kitchen is separate to the lounge and fully equipped with everything you might need to rustle up some culinary delights.

Step through the glass panelled door that leads to the secluded garden and al fresco dining area to enjoy the sunshine all day long. Further up the garden you’ll discover another seating area which provides plenty of space for a group of four!

For your convenience there is a downstairs bathroom with bath and hand-held shower, a sink and WC.

Head up the staircase to discover the two beautiful bedrooms. The first bedroom has a luxurious super king size bed (can be made to two single beds), freestanding wardrobe, chest of drawers, bed side tables and a basket with blankets for when the nights are chillier.

You can rest in the second bedroom which looks out onto the garden and offers a ensuite shower room. The bedroom has a king size bed, chest of drawers, small wardrobe and blackout Roman blinds.

Cordwainer’s Cottage is well positioned within the small village of Winfrith Newburgh, between Dorchester and Wareham, and on the doorstep to the Jurassic Coast. You will find a local pub, village store and the post office, all within 3-minute walk!

For a relaxing day out, why not head to Dorset’s iconic landmarks such as Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Blue Pool and Corfe Castle (all within a 10 - 20 minute drive from the cottage). Further afield you can explore the seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Poole.

The cottage is ideal for keen walkers and cyclists as it is surrounded by wonderful walking routes - perfect to discover the beauty of rural countryside and local villages.

Please note: Cordwainer’s Cottage has low ceilings in some rooms, which is typical of a 17th century cottage and the stairs to the first floor are steep.

Please note: the seating area in the rear garden is uneven.
