Exofficio 50.650018, -2.296325 ExofficioChaldon HerringNr Lulworth CoveDT2 8DNDT2 8DN (Directions)

Sleeping up to 6 plus a baby, Ex Officio is one of a pair.  The ground floor has been designed in an open plan style with expansive, Travertine tiled flooring and its two downstairs bedrooms are particularly suited for those who find stairs difficult.  The kitchen, modern bathroom and superb furnishings have resulted in a much deserved four star grade.

 This semi-detached cottage is situated in the idyllic village of East Chaldon or Chaldon Herring, as it may otherwise be known.  The village pub, The Sailors Return, offers tasty food whilst overlooking country views. East Chaldon is set deep in the heart of rolling Dorset countryside yet very close to the sea and several coastal gems including Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Ringstead.  Many varied walks to the South West Coastal Path, now a World Heritage Site, emanate from the village.

 Notwithstanding, the south Dorset market towns of Swanage, Wareham, Weymouth, Dorchester, Bridport and Blandford are within easy driving distance, especially the tourist attractions of Monkey World and The Tank Museum at Bovington.

 

Facilities:

3 Bedrooms.  G/F Double, G/F Single, (pull out single) F/F Twin.  Open plan Lounge/Diner seating six, Freesat TV, DVD. Kitchen, elec. oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, w-machine, dishwasher.   G/F Bathroom with separate shower cubicle, F/F en-suite shower room.  Patio, Garden with furniture.  Parking, 2 off road.  Oil fired central heating.  Travel cot (no linen) and high chair. Linen and towels included in weekly and short break bookings. Two dogs welcome but not permitted in bedrooms or left unattended in house or garden.  WIFI.

lovely house
Dit is een heel mooi vakantiehuis. Lekker ruim en rustig gelegen. De tuin is leuk om in te zitten en er is een mooie TV.. De locatie is ideaal als je dagelijks uitstapjes wilt maken en van wandelen houdt. Het huis is schoon en compleet. Lakens en handdoeken zijn aanwezig en de eigenaren zijn aardig en behulpzaam. In de nabij gelegen pub kan je lekker eten.

Lovely cottage; perfect for young families
This a lovely and very spacious little cottage which is perfect for young families. We have a 6 month old and a 2 and a half year old and the location is superb for various child-friendly activities. During our stay we visited Monkey World, the Dinosaur Museum in Dorchester, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, Brownsea Island, Farmer Palmers, and Corfe Castle on the Swanage Railway. None of these places were more than 30 mins away and most were within a 20 min drive. The cottage itself is lovely. It’s very clean and well kept, and the bathroom and kitchen facilities are excellent. The little garden is a perfect size for the little ones to play in and we enjoyed some meals outside during the nice weather. We are both runners, and area provided for some lovely runs to and around the neighbouring villages. We had an absolutely lovely time and would highly recommend Ex Officio
Kjersti Richards - 25/06/2019
Great location and comfortable well-presented cottage
We had a lovely welcome from the owners who live next door. They were very helpful and even lent us a bike. Chaldon Herring is a very quiet village slightly off the crowded tourist route. The children loved being able to play on the village green and ride their bikes around the village. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are only a short drive or cycle away. The cottage was beautifully clean and comfortable.
Andrea Clark - 09/06/2019

Paul Faulkner - 02/10/2018
Cottage is getting a little tired
Although most of the cottage is in reasonable order a few things need attending to. The main downstairs bathroom needs to be updated, a new shower and redecoration. The garden area needs to be tidied up and the tree's, where you are asked to park need pruning back.
David Penman - 10/08/2018
lovely hosts superb location
East Chaldon is an idyllic location.This well appointed cottage and it's welcoming hosts are to be highly recommended. The cottage is in a pretty village location -surprisingly well placed for the main routes to Swanage and Dorchester. Good well signposted walking nearby especially for nature lovers and their dogs. We would happily return for another holiday.
Alex McAusland - 27/07/2018
Wonderful
A very relaxing long weekend spent in a beautiful village close to all our favourite places. The cottage was perfect and we felt at home with our two dogs, everything we could possibly need was catered for from the large shower cubicle to the comfortable double bed, lovely kitchen and large living room/dining room. Would definitely recommend and we hope to visit again.

A fantastic base for exploring the Purbeck peninsular
Very comfortable, spacious accommodation in a pretty little village (so quiet! not a sound!) with an excellent gastro-pub. Friendly owners nearby to help with our queries. We had a wonderful week there and have fallen in love with Chaldon Herring, the Purbeck peninsular and Dorset in general. Thank you!

Debbie Dean - 17/06/2017
Comfortable accommodation in peaceful location.
Clean and comfortable house. Nice seating area outside. Would be useful to have a bit more equipment in the kitchen, larger glasses and a bit more crockery and cutlery to make the dishwasher worthwhile.

Absolutely excellent couldn't of wished for anything better would of given them ten stars if it was an option
Far exceeded our expectations, absolutely beautiful furnished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean,extremely comfortable with all the amenities, just like your own home.

For us 5 adults and a child the accomodation was just right and unlike some places we have stayed the furniture in the living room was comfortable. The owner who lives next door was kind and helpful. would recommend to anyone

Perfect spot for a relaxing holiday
This is our third visit to the cottage and it never fails to live up to expectation. Everything we wanted from this holiday was delivered; great cottage (just has such a lovely homely and welcoming feel to it), excellent location (love the fact that the Sailor's Rest pub is a short walk) and that everything is within easy reach - beaches, towns, country parks, lovely walks, historical interest etc. Will almost certainly be going again.

Set in a beautiful village. A delightful conversion.
We made a very late booking due to other holiday plans failing at the last minute. The staff at Dorset Cottage were most helpful. The cottage, was set in the centre of a delightful village. The owner lived next door and had prepared our cottage at very short notice. She made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed eating outside in the garden each day with lovely countryside views. The pub,less than 5 minutes walk away, was exceptionally good.
