Godwins cottage is a stunning refurbished 300 year old thatched cottage. Although attached to the main property, it has its own private entrance, private roof terrace and large fenced garden area with Hot Tub, so plenty of space to spread out and relax, whether it's al fresco breakfast in the morning or an evening dip in Hot Tub watching the sun set over fields. We also have outbuildings which can store bikes or motorbikes if required.

The space
We are set in the idyllic and peaceful village of Moreton. Famous for being the resting place of T.E. Lawrence aka Lawrence of Arabia. Godwin's hosts everything you need to make your stay restful with a little bit of luxury about it. Downstairs is the cottage kitchen and the living room with dining table and chairs, comfy settee and a 50 inch Smart TV. Upstairs is the converted hayloft which is now a fabulous bedroom with en-suite bathroom which has a double ended bath with waterfall taps and overhead is a rain forest power shower. This all leads onto your own private spacious roof terrace, where you can enjoy the views while either enjoying your morning breakfast or watching the sunset over the countryside with a chilled glass of wine. Fully enclosed dog friendly garden with Hot Tub. It is simply quite a special place.

Where you’ll be

Moreton, England, United Kingdom

We are settled in the heart of Hardy Country, which is simply quite beautiful. We are very lucky to live in the abundant countryside but to have the coast on our doorstep too. We are also 10 minutes away from the County Town of Dorchester. Moreton has the Walled Gardens with Tearoom, Moreton Church with it's rare and unusual windows and Moreton Ford which when you cross it leads off into miles of walks through Moreton Forest. Nearby is Bovington where there is a weekly Tank display also boasts the home of T.E Lawrence, Clouds Hill. Bovington also hosts the Tank Fest annually. Corfe Castle is a spectacular ruin with amazing views. Two miles away is the family home of Thomas Hardy and then you can take a tour round the countryside visiting all the famous places that come from within his books. Most of these haven't changed since his day.
