Frome Lodge House

Frome Lodge House is situated on the outskirts of the county town of Dorchester. The property, which is set back from the road, overlooks the Frome River Water Meadow and is a perfect base for couples or a small family. The property is within easy walking distance of the centre of Dorchester but offers the bonus of pretty rural views.

All on ground level this property has a contemporary bright combined living kitchen and dining room benefitting from patio doors to enjoy the enclosed rear lawned garden on sunny days. It also offers a woodburning stove to snuggle up in front of on chilly days with a good book and a hot chocolate.

The centre of Dorchester is around a mile away and has a great combination of shopping, eating, historical and visitor attractions. The traditional high is street peppered with well-known shops is complemented by lanes accommodating charming boutique shops and independents. The town boasts more than four museums including one dedicated to dinosaurs and another to Tutankhamun. The beautiful Borough Gardens have tennis courts, a play area and traditional band stand. Other 'must dos' in and around Dorchester include the Iron Age Maiden Castle and an original Roman Townhouse. Adjacent to the property is a countryside walk / cycle lane. If you stroll just a couple of minutes in one direction and you will soon arrive at the Sun Inn at Charminster, a popular pub with visitors and locals which serves good food. A stroll in the other direction and you will reach the pretty river path which leads to the bottom of Dorchester centre. Around 10 miles away is the coast at Weymouth which boasts a long and sandy award winning beach along with traditional beachside entertainments such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy, and numerous shops and restaurants.

This is an ideal small property to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Allowing you to spend long lazy days exploring this popular part of Dorset.
