About 3 Heathland Cottages

This former isolation hospital offers walks on the heathland and a cosy wood burner when you return.

Standing alone among fluffy heathland and rolling hills is this intriguing cladded building, once used as an isolation hospital. Plan your escape to this beautiful corner of Dorset where you’ll be rewarded with views of the Purbeck Hills and the Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve. You’ll love the interior of this cabin-like building too with its original vernacular pine clad walls, gallery bedroom and rustic log burner. It also benefits from adapted facilities for wheelchair users. 

Outside, there’s a large open lawn which is shared with the neighbouring holiday homes. From here there’s direct access to the heathland in front of the cottages, meaning you’ll have miles of picturesque walks to explore.

The Heathland Cottages are located at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where dinosaurs once roamed. Loop onto the South West Coast Path and go fossil hunting, admiring the view of Lulworth Cove from the headlands along the way.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
