Luxury family seaside holiday house sleeping 12 with an outdoor pool, near Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Glenacres, Seatown, Bridport, Dorset, sleeps 5 - 12 in 5 bedrooms.
Awarded Visit England 2024/25 '5 Star Gold'. Glenacres is a large luxurious family beach holiday home with a small outside solar heated swimming pool (open from May to October). It has extensive gardens (approx. 3 acres) including a rose garden, walled garden and bluebell woodland which is rare in this location and comes as a pleasant surprise when you arrive at the property. It is a picture-perfect setting in an amazing location.
The house itself is furnished with carefully accrued pieces with emphasis on comfort and relaxation. The bedrooms are charming and warm with luxurious beds and beautiful linens which give great nights sleeps with blackout shutters on the double aspect windows keeping out the morning light, or leaving them open listening to the calm or roar of the sea.
The bespoke kitchen is equipped with all that a cook would need. It is a focal place where families can gather and in summer evenings meals can be taken alfresco in either the formal or walled gardens. There are 3 reception rooms, each with a different theme; one with open fire with sofas and dining table, the second with a baby grand piano, TV and sofas and the third, again with sofas, toys, books, games, TV and football table. Each is large and adjoining one another, and all look out to the pool, garden and sea.
The conservatory overlooks the pool garden with a small drinks fridge and tea and coffee facilities. It is cosy and warm on a winter's day and can be opened up on a warm day to let a cool breeze in (comes with fly screens).
Glenacres is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, served by more than 20 miles of footpaths and bridle ways, all rich in wildlife. Nestled under 'Golden Cap', it is worth a walk to its summit as it gives an unrivalled view across Lyme Bay and towards the Isle of Portland. Bridport, 4 miles to the east, is known for its art and antiques quarter. West Bay, within Bridport's town boundary, is a busy harbour 'village' with beach and characteristic kiosks, pubs and restaurants. 8 miles to the west is the pretty historic resort of Lyme Regis.
