New property for 2019: One of very few privately owned properties located on National Trust land, St Gabriels Cottage is nestled in the heart of stunning Dorset countryside with Golden Cap as its backdrop and the sea beyond.

Part of Stanton St Gabriels a Saxon settlement of which all that remains is a ruined medieval chapel and an 18th Century manor house, now owned and run by the National Trust. The ancient landscape of this secluded valley has been formed by centuries of farming but is now a popular route for walkers following the South West Coast Path (just a five minute walk away) or exploring the many footpaths which criss-cross the area.

St Gabriels Cottage is a simply furnished, thatched cottage full of the characterful features and charm you would associate with a property of its age. Its remote location makes the cottage an ideal choice for those wishing to escape the fast pace of everyday life. The surrounding woodland, meadows and hedges support an abundance of birds and wildlife and the garden, with its stream running nearby, is the perfect spot to simply relax and enjoy the glorious setting.

With the market town of Bridport and the seaside towns of West Bay, Charmouth and Lyme Regis only a short drive away, St Gabriels is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this beautiful part of the Jurassic coastline. A charming location wonderful for walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and for those looking to enjoy a peaceful rural retreat, just remember to pack your walking boots and picnic basket.
