Tastefully presented and finished to a high standard, this property will appeal to those of you visiting with extended family and friends. A choice of living areas provides space to entertain and relax in while the 20-foot kitchen-diner has all you need for cooking up and serving a feast.
From the entrance you will find doors leading to the three reception rooms and impressive large kitchen/diner. Off the kitchen, the utility room leads to a self-contained ground floor double bedroom complete with en-suite shower room, perfect for those wishing additional privacy. From the kitchen/diner, French doors lead to a patio area that captures the late afternoon sun.
From the lounge, French doors will take you to a large garden terrace, where you can enjoy the morning sun with your coffee. The enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn including a grate-covered pond and is stocked with a range of mature shrubs and trees; perfect for children to explore and build a den!
On the first floor via a split-level staircase, there are a further 4 bedrooms, all of which are well proportioned with high ceilings throughout. To the left you will find the master king with en-suite shower room and a further large king room with views over the garden. To the right – 1 twin bedded room and 1 double with views of the pretty garden. On this same level, you will also find the family bathroom which boasts a walk-in shower, large bath to luxuriate in and under-floor heating.
Storage is generous with a utility room/cloakroom providing additional space for those muddy or sandy boots. There is also a small covered outdoor section for storing your wetsuits and beach paraphernalia.
West Lodge has the benefits of being a wonderful rural retreat yet it is within easy reach of local amenities and attractions. It is located just a mile outside Corfe Castle and a short stroll from the village of Church Knowle, with its local pub and fish restaurant. West Lodge is positioned in the centre of the Isle of Purbeck, a peninsular (rather than an island), designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a World Heritage Jurassic coastline. Such a central location means that the famous dinosaur/fossil beach of Kimmeridge to the West, the bustling seaside town of Swanage to the South and the Blue Flag sandy beaches of Studland to the East are all within 15 minutes drive of West Lodge. No navigating narrow country lanes or long journeys to the coast!
Paths and trails lead from the doorstep along the valley floor or up onto the ridge of the Purbeck Way and are popular with walkers and cyclists alike. Maps and books of trails are provided, as too is a comprehensive list of what to do in the area. Just 5 miles from West Lodge is the market town of Wareham, where you will find eateries, pubs and shops. Grab yourself an ice cream or take a boat trip along the River Frome. There are so many different things to do here you will truly be spoilt for choice and after a full day of exploring, what better way to end it than by returning to West Lodge to unwind and relax with your family and friends. Whether it is the sun-seeking beach escape or the festive celebration, West Lodge has year-round appeal.
