No Smoking thoughout the cottage
Access Statement

Tall Trees is a single storey 250-year-old grade 2 listed cottage in what originally was a stable & forge to a neighbouring farm. In the 20th century it was converted to a domestic dwelling.

The cottage stands in its own grounds with gravel laid car parking (free all day) on the same level and is accessed by a short sloping track that is generally of hardened material is but characteristically worn with a gradient of about 1 in 6. There is a bus stop at the bottom of the track from where there are services to Swanage (5 mins), Studland (7 mins) and Bournemouth (50 mins). It is an easy 15 min walk to the beach down a gently sloping footpath that follows the road.

As will be expected the cottage was not designed for 21st century conveniences and access and as a result is a quaint cosy cottage, quintessentially rural England. There are however 2 small steps (20cm & 10cm) on the route to the bedroom, which add to its rustic character. The doors are minimum 76cm wide, but the latches are hand-made in wood that are bulkier then modern handles thus naturally impinging slightly in the passageway through.

The bedroom is the original tack room but after its conversion to a dwelling you would not realise it except that it is relatively compact. In this room we have a 4-poster bed with a 21st century king-sized mattress. Naturally this reduces the passage around the bed somewhat, but enhances the old world charm.

Adjoining the bedroom is the ensuite power-shower room with a 200cm x 80cm shower pan and 80cm safety glass door. A WC sits at the other end with a modern washbasin between over a heated floor. The access door is 61cm. This room is adequate for the majority of guests, but we do ask you to examine the floor plan below to ensure that you spatial requirements are met
