About Wydcombe CottageSee if you can spot red squirrels when you stay at this former farm worker’s cottage.
Situated in a picturesque valley, Wydcombe is a former farm labourer’s cottage with just a few other dwellings surrounding it. Boasting two wood burning stoves, this cosy cottage offers the perfect secluded escape.
Breathe in a welcome dose of country air as you make your way around the cottage’s peaceful surroundings. See if you can spot some of the local wildlife, the area is a haven for rare red squirrels and bee-eaters.
Nearby, St Catherine’s lighthouse juts out into the sea. Explore the wild coastline here before heading to the 16th-century Buddle Inn for some refreshments.
