Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Montana is perched in a serene hillside location with dramatic vistas over an ancient valley of majestic fir trees, just two miles from Lyme Regis on the Dorset and Devon border. This eco-friendly luxury self-catering lodge was designed by award-winning architects, with first class luxuriating in mind. Flawless craftsmanship, clean lines and understated elegance combine to flaunt a contemporary Nordic style, setting the scene for a blissful escape.
Rest and relaxation will be order of the day at modish Montana. This sophisticated lodge-style abode comprises two handsome dwellings with an eco-friendly design in keeping with its surroundings, rich in natural beauty. The impressive timber façade is clad with Western Red Cedar, with triple glazed glass panels bringing the lushness of the outside in. Bespoke oak furnishings, concrete project floor tiles and wooden panelled ceilings with pendant lighting gives an elegant Scandinavian appeal to this unique luxury self-catering Dorset home. Montana's striking appearance and alpine-like setting make it like no other on the Jurassic Coast.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
On the ground floor is a family bathroom with overhead shower, WC, super-king zip-and-link bedroom and king-size bedroom with en suite shower room. The first floor comprises a king-size bedroom, zip-and-link bedroom and shower room. With linear windows, the luxury showers look out over the stunning landscape, giving you the sensation of bathing under a tropical rainforest waterfall, in the privacy of your own home-from-home! The detached lodge annexe contains a king-size zip-and-link bedroom with en suite shower room; perfect for lovebirds, who can enjoy their own private retreat within the grounds of this stylish sanctuary.
Set in an acre of grounds, Montana possesses a unique location where enchanting wild animals are sketched into the sweeping woodland landscape as if on the pages of a children’s storybook. Nature aficionados will love to set up camp on the sunny deck with a Devonshire cream tea spread to observe the circling buzzards, wandering deer and wild horses who too call this home. With brilliant cycling and walking routes on the doorstep, stroll through Harcombe Bottom and Dragon's Hill to the golden sands of the dramatic Jurassic coastline, where history-hungry children can hunt for prehistoric fossils and frolic in the lapping waves until sundown.
What better way to unwind or be inspired than to admire the ever-changing scene of the breath-taking landscape? Watch the skies change colour above the ancient forest and savour the woody aromas which fill the air with notes of honeyed orange. On rainy days, children can squirrel away in their private TV room to play a skillful game of Jenga, while grown-ups enjoy a glass of red around the roaring fire in the living room. As the clock strikes midnight, head for the deck and wait for shooting stars to sparkle across the dark night’s sky, with only the faint hoot of the owl and gentle whisper of the firs to disturb.
Montana has parking for up to five cars on the gravel drive. This contemporary property is well-equipped with all the mod cons; an American-style fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, induction hob, two ovens and washer dryer. The annexe lodge is available for the full group option, featuring an open plan kitchenette and super-king zip-and-link bedroom. Dogs are very welcome, but guests may want to note that Montana sits in an acre of grounds which are not fully enclosed.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: The contemporary cedar clad exteriors and natural interiors draw inspiration from the woodland setting. This striking home gives a nod to the Nordic; eclectic yet oozing sophistication.
Property Owner Liam says
The most wonderful thing at Montana is to sit with a glass of wine on the decking looking at the most fantastic woodland views, the stars and the wildlife; it has a constantly changing scene. It is a totally secret place with modern, luxurious touches that make it very special to us.

FOOD AND DRINK
Make full use of the open plan kitchen and whip up a gastronomic feast for the family. With possibly the most impressive stage in Devon for al fresco dining, enjoy a BBQ on the deck using locally reared produce and fresh salad sprinkled with herbs from the garden. The contemporary kitchen flaunts all the mod cons you need to make wining and dining an absolute delight.
If you’d rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
Hop on the saddle and cycle up to Hawkchurch for a traditional Sunday lunch at The Old Inn. If you're looking for award-winning dining, Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall's restaurant in Axminster is a must; serving the best of local produce. For something a little closer to home, walk up the hill to The Hunters Lodge, offering a variety of dishes which come highly recommended by the locals!
