About Downhouse Farm Cottage

A rural retreat with far-reaching views over the Dorset countryside.

Downhouse Farm Cottage is situated in an enviable spot on the Golden Cap estate, England's only natural World Heritage Site. With its enclosed garden and patio area, the cottage enjoys sweeping countryside views from a secluded setting.

Wake up to a healthy dose of sea air before heading out for a stroll along the Jurassic Coast. With miles of breath taking sea shore to explore, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The nearby town of Lyme Regis is a beautiful place to spend the afternoon. Paddle in the sea, take a walk along the town’s world-famous cob, and sample some of the best seafood in the area.

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.
