A paleontologists dream!
The cottage is situated in a secluded natural mature garden surrounded by our own private woodland. In spring, we have spectacular bluebells, daffodils, wild garlic and primroses with rhododendrons later in the year. There’s ample outdoor seating and a BBQ area.
The cottage has log burning stoves and storage heating. The decor is traditional and cosy, the bathroom and kitchen are well-equipped and functional. No TV but Wi-Fi is available.
We have a family of badgers who come most evenings to be fed. These can be seen on YouTube by searching Filcombe Badgers.
Guests can hike along the coastal path and reach the summit of Golden Cap (191 metres high and the highest point on the South coast). There are spectacular views all along the Jurassic Coast (a designated SSSI and a UNESCO World Heritage Site). There is access to St Gabriel’s beach by challenging steps rebuilt each year by the National Trust for the adventurous! There are various sandy beaches and places of interest to suit a variety of tastes. A walk around the area surrounding Filcombe Cottage is featured in the TV series, Julia’s Walks.
