The hideaway is tucked away in the beautiful Dorset village of Briantspudde next to the River Piddle. The hideaway is found in "The old engine shed" building, once part of the Debenhams estate which has now been converted into an artist gallery & working studio. The apartment is self contained and located on the ground floor it comes with private parking and own entrance door with keys.

There is a separate breakfast room/dinner & bathroom with shower pod that serves both bedrooms. No shared spaces ,the rental is for the entire apartment and those you travel with. Briantspuddle is just off the A35 close to the county town of Dorchester and 20 mins form the coast and the famous Lulworth Estate & cove. We are in the heart of the Dorset countryside in the Purbeck District close to the tank museum & monkey world. The village has a small shop and the next village Tolpuddle has a country pub. We are central to most of the major tourist attractions in this part of Dorset and the heritage Jurassic coast. You can walk out of your front door straight in to woodland, forest and rivers or jump on a bicycle and cycle through the local forest, lanes and woodlands.
