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

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
