Prairie De Gorge started life as two tumbledown cob cottages and has been tenderly renovated into a luxury self-catering cottage retreat exuding country charm. Set on the fringe of Shipton Gorge near Burton Bradstock, this elegant family home is idyllically positioned just three miles from the Jurassic Coast with its unique landscape of dramatic sea cliffs, Olympic-class sailing waters and golden beaches packed with fossils.
Approached via a winding country lane flanked by rolling green pastures, Prairie De Gorge is sure to delight discerning families looking for a luxury self-catering home stay in a picture-perfect setting near Burton Bradstock. Behind the golden Dorset stone exterior, this family home captures a romantic French country style. Antiqued furnishings and floral fabrics are set against a calming colour palette complemented with tints of chalky blue and rose.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
On the ground floor there is a shower room with WC and shabby chic twin bedroom which will be adored by children. The first floor comprises a family bathroom with WC, bath and overhead shower, along with two beautifully appointed double bedrooms. The luxurious master suite enjoys views over the patchwork countryside and glimpses towards the iconic coastline beyond. While the other is slightly more cosy, its romantic English theme and sumptuous linens ensure it certainly doesn't compromise on luxury.
The courtyard with pretty knot garden will be a favourite spot for adults to enjoy the tranquil setting with an afternoon tipple, while children play in the grassy paddock alongside. Armed with brimming picnic baskets, buckets and spades, take the three mile jaunt to the Jurassic Coast for a jolly day at the seaside. When sun-kissed families head home to rest their sleepy heads after a day of frolicking in the waves, the mesmerising night's sky promises to bring a magical end to the day - there is no better place for stargazing than in the still surrounds of this rural homestead.
Halcyon days spent moseying around the quaint villages, coastline and countryside will give families a healthy dose of country living, and the fresh air will provide a natural tonic to rejuvenate weary souls. Take the short country ramble down to the characterful New Inn in Shipton Gorge and refuel with a hearty supper in the warm company of the welcoming locals. On winter days the log fire will be the heart of the home, where families can cosy up with board games and rounds of home-made cakes and tea, indulging in good old-fashioned quality time together.
There is parking for two cars beside the property. The friendly owner lives in the adjacent house. This luxury home stay is well equipped, with combined washer dryer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and electric oven with grill and conduction hob.

AROUND THE PROPERTY

Property Owner Helen says
The house is surrounded by spectacular West Dorset landscapes and it is the setting that makes it truly special, from glimpses of the Jurassic Coast at Burton Bradstock to the Iron Age fort at Eggerdon Hill. On a clear night, the peaceful star-filled sky is just beautiful.

FOOD AND DRINK
The open plan kitchen-diner has French doors leading to the courtyard. Serve breakfast with the doors pulled open, letting the country breeze carry the smell of fresh bread and bacon outside to lure children from the garden. The BBQ will be a favourite during warmer months when families can make the most of the long summer days.
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).
There is a great selection of pubs and restaurants nearby in Burton Bradstock and beyond. The New Inn is a traditional country pub just half a mile away. With good home-made food, a pretty beer garden and roaring log fire in the winter, this inn is run by the friendly community and offers families a true feel of the local way of life. For a taste of the ocean, head down to the harbour at West Bay and dine at The Riverside which serves up excellent seafood all year round.
