The history of this thatched, former fisherman’s cottage has seeped into every nook, cranny, and beam of this charming home. If you are looking for an archetypal English Cottage, on the doorstep of a four-mile stretch of glorious golden, sandy beaches then this is for you.

Entering directly into the large KITCHEN / DINING ROOM you’ll be greeted by light and airy space, with surprisingly high ceilings. There is a large window on the rear wall filling the room with westerly light. A farmhouse table currently sits in the heart of the room, surrounded by a mix of wall mounted and floor based units, a traditional dresser, fitted cupboards and still plenty of space for more.

Stepping down into the SITTING ROOM, a first-time visitor is struck by old world charm. This is definitely ‘a curl up on the sofa and snuggle in’ type of room. With original beams, deep walls, and a window seat under one of three south facing windows - it’s a hard room to leave! Off the sitting room is another charming room currently used as BEDROOM THREE. Furnished with twin beds and sizeable original fitted cupboard. The FAMILY BATHOOM is adjacent to the kitchen and entered via a small lobby, fitted with a bath with overhead shower, W.C. and wash hand basin. It has high ceilings and a large window flooding it with more natural light.

At the rear of the sitting room, stairs lead up to ‘Hansel and Gretel’ type bedrooms. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is stunning, with sloping ceilings, original beams, and original fitted wardrobes. A large double bed currently sits against the chimney breast with beautifully crafted bedside cupboards on either side. The window opens out under the thatch offering a view down to Beach Road. BEDROOM TWO is another spacious double room with more original beams, original fitted wardrobes, bedside cupboards and again a delightful window seat looking out from under the eaves.

To the front of Vine Cottage is a low stone wall with an established vine meandering around the windows. This space is currently used for parking, but equally could be planted as a delightful cottage garden. To the rear is a small area beneath the kitchen window which is a useful space for washing off sandy boots and beach paraphernalia.

Vine Cottage has no need for expansive gardens as it is such a short stroll down to the beaches and cliff top walks.

Vine Cottage is just a short walk from the award winning blue flag beach which offers water sports, artisan cafes and even a beach hut converted to a sauna. Nearby are riding stables, cycle paths, nature trails. There is a charming stone pub with log fires in the winter and spectacular waterside views in the summer. In recent years The Pig Hotel with restaurant, cocktail bar and gardens has established itself as a destination in its own right. Further along is the Shell Bay restaurant offering fresh seafood with spectacular views across the harbour to Brownsea Island and Sandbanks. community at Old Harry's bar and village shop for day to day needs.
