North Eggardon Carthouse is an inspired and thoughtful new conversion of a group of 18th Century stables, carthouse and haylofts. The result is an elegant, luxurious and energy-efficient house which will sleep ten to thirteen people in five bedrooms.
The Carthouse, once owned by a famous C18th smuggler, lies at the end of a long private drive under the spectacular prehistoric hillfort of Eggardon. It is hidden deep inside West Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, four miles from the nearest public highway yet the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is only 20 minutes away by car. Maybe you could find a fossil! Take a short walk up to Eggardon's Iron Age ramparts and you can see the glorious sweep of Lyme Bay and its unspoilt hinterland of rolling hills and vales.
