We had a wonderfully relaxed week at Coastguards Retreat. It’s a special and unique place with spectacular views of The Fleet and nature reserve, plus its fascinating history. The location is partly remote via a long track, giving an ‘away from it all’ feel, although everything you need is nearby in the local villages. On arrival we appreciated some personal touches from the owners such as a welcome pack of local goodies and a bottle of sparkling wine. Also, there was a handy pair of binoculars for viewing all the lovely sights. The house is immaculately finished and well equipped, very comfortable with its open plan living space and uninterrupted panoramic views of Chesil Beach and the sea beyond. The patio area has a communal feel, from where we enjoyed some breath-taking sunsets – no need to dash off anywhere to find them! There is also a lovely terraced garden space at the rear of the cottage. We had fun exploring the local area and found some great beaches just within a few miles. There are fabulous and peaceful walks right on the doorstep with a track down to the coastal path and nature reserve. It was a real pleasure witnessing the wildlife such as the local hare and the antics of the skylarks. We highly recommend Coastguards Retreat and of course look forward to returning one day.
