The Details

Sleeping 12, the Garden House is a contemporary and prestigious holiday stay, set within the grade II listed, walled garden on the 350 acre Rousdon Estate.

The stunning double height conservatory allows light to pour in. Slide open the enormous French doors onto the stunning south facing terrace and immerse yourself in the historic walled gardens.  

Tastefully furnished with the owners personal touches, the property provides sensational family accommodation in the most private and peaceful of settings.

The bespoke kitchen with steel worktops is designed to comfortably accommodate large groups of friends and families, around  a beautiful custom-made Dinesen dining table. The terrace bordering the house provides superb additional living and dining spaces.

The first floor mezzanine features a viewing platform, by day look over the Jurassic Coast and Lyme Bay, and by night a telescope for planet searching and star gazing.

The property has six bedrooms, with three en-suite and offer versatile and flexible bed configurations. The house was designed and furnished to allow tall people to stay in comfort so all shower heads have high and adjustable shower heads, and the larger beds are long without footboards.

One Super King bedroom with ensuite and views over the garden and sea.

One King size bedroom with en suite and total black out curtains

The historic walled garden is akin to something out of The Secret Garden, set in one acre of private mixed meadow, wild flower and lawns, complete with a fairy tale turret overlooking the Jurassic Coast and arched pavilion overlooking the gardens.

Guests at The Garden House have the offer to use the owners Beach Hut located on Lyme Regis Marine Parade - equipped with beach chairs, tables, windbreak and buckets and spades. No need to bring your own.
