There is shared use of a tumble dryer. In the living room there are glass doors which lead to a large decked balcony which has a seating area overlooking the paddock and surrounding countryside. Broadwindsor is a popular, friendly and very historic conservation village, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The cottage is very popular and guests return year after year. The White Lion pub is only about 400m from the cottage and is very friendly with a welcoming village atmosphere. The pub serves great food and a good selection of beverages. Walkers and dogs are very welcome. There is a wonderful award winning Community Village Shop which provides a wide range of very good quality fresh local produce, and freshly baked bread every morning. A children's play area is in the centre of the village and there is a large well maintained sports field with football goals very close to the cottage. Historians will be interested in the 12th century church and King Charles Cottage in The Square where King Charles II was fleeing Parliamentary troops and he sheltered here for 2 nights. Enemy troops began to search the house, but were put off when a woman began to give birth in the kitchen. The troops left, and the king was able to escape dressed as a serving maid. Broadwindsor also has a renowned Craft centre, which also has a restaurant serving very good lunches. From the cottage there are lovely walks up Lewesdon Hill, owned by the National Trust, the highest hill in Dorset. Close-by there is wonderful walking in fantastic countryside ## ALSO SEE Albert Cottage, BEAMINSTER; furnished and equipped to the same high standard as The Bothy, Hursey Gate Stables and Orchard Cottage in Broadwindsor; run by the same owner ; several 'GREAT' REVIEWS ON 'TRIP ADVISOR' More
