Bright, fresh and overlooking the ocean, Sugar Ray is perched above the muscovado sands of Hive Beach on England’s cheerful south coast. An endless horizon to the front, rolling hills to the back and understated seaside elegance within seamlessly blend to make this self-catering beach house in Dorset a refreshing refuge from the real world.

Self-catering beach house for hire in Burton Bradstock, Dorset

Introduction

Made entirely out of wood and designed with the extensive sea views in mind, this cool, clapboard beach house on the Dorset coast is the perfect place to while away the time throughout each of England’s four seasons. Sat in the footprint of the grassroots self-sufficiency movement, Sugar Ray was rebuilt by the hands of a local craftsman in 2012, taking inspiration from hideaway cabins in the Scottish Highlands.  A simple, eclectic interior encourages a journey through the floor-to-ceiling windows, under the tangled orchard branches and to the sun-trapped outdoor swimming pool beyond.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Spread out across one floor, Sugar Ray has three double bedrooms all positioned towards the back of the house. Each bedroom, as luxurious as the next, is bright with natural light, rich in personality and punctuated with characterful furnishings. There is one family bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower, one separate WC inside the house and a small WC and changing room near the swimming pool. For afternoon naps, take to the day beds in the pool house and dreamy shepherd's hut.

Outside

Overlooking Hive Beach on the east side of Burton Bradstock, the extensive, informally landscaped gardens were designed for family fun and sun worshipping. With a sunny, south-facing disposition, follow the morning rays as they rise and fall around the house from swimming pool, to orchard, to colourful flower-bed bordered lawn. For easy access to the beach and surf, hop over the stile behind the pool house; in the evenings, gather around the fire pit and watch the coastline twinkle into the night.

For Relaxation

Days here are best spent curled together, fingers linked, watching the weather change over the sea. When the sun is shining, fill the pool house fridge with crisp white wine and float in the outdoor swimming pool, occasionally seeking shade under a tree in the orchard. Of course, it can’t always be balmy in England and when the weather forces time spent inside, here it is time to delight; light the wood burner in the shepherd's hut, cosy down on the day bed with a good book and mug of hot cocoa and slip in and out of daydreams as the rain patters on the roof.

Practicalities

There are two designated parking spaces in the bays outside the property with further parking available through the wooden cattle gate above the house. The kitchen benefits from a large range oven with six gas hobs, a Nespresso machine, one large fridge and a dishwasher. There is also one small freezer in the log shed and a small fridge and sink in the pool house – perfect for post-pool nibbles and tipples!

Our Take

Property Owner Katy says

The best feature of our property is the sea! Whatever the weather, if you´re out on the deck or cosy in the large sitting room you can see it and hear its soft roar from the beach below. It´s hypnotic and relaxing. You could be anywhere in the world. It´s absolutely magical.
