Modern Walk to Village Parking Space Romantic

Live on the Sundown High in this modern home of cosy nooks and outdoor spaces designed to fully enjoy the natural beauty and lakeside wildlife of this tranquil countryside estate.  Hop off the water to your own jetty and sink into the outdoor seating of your own private decking in just a matter of strides.

In this spacious open plan living dining kitchen area, up to seven guests, will find plenty of options to socialise and unwind from catching a film on the comfy sofas in front of a cosy fire to a six-seater dining table, perfect for long evening meals and even a breakfast island an ideal space to plan your day over a morning juice.  The patio doors open up to the private decking where guests can recline and take in the peaceful tranquillity of the lake outside.  

Up to the first floor the house’s defining feature is the property-width balcony giving access to two of the bedrooms, a master bedroom with en-suite shower and a further double bedroom.  Take your morning coffee onto the balcony and try your hand at spotting the local rooks, coons and ducks that swoop over the water.  Also on the first floor is a double bed with single over, ideal for kids’ sleepovers and a family bathroom with over bath shower.

Nestled in the Dorset coastal countryside, Sundown High offers a relaxing lakeside retreat with style and comfort at the forefront.  There is something for everyone at the Silverlake activity hub from tennis courts to paddle boarding, whilst those looking to relax and unwind can head for a restorative swim and sauna at the shared pool and spa.  Surrounded by the Dorset heathlands, where in the summer wild ponies roam, the house is within reaching distance of the stunning Jurassic Coastline and its glorious beaches, the perfect spot to enjoy all the county has to offer.

What you should know…

  • The property sits in a new development on the estate, so be aware that nearby construction work will be taking place throughout the week and on Saturdays
  • Although safe, the development is centred round a lake so guests with small children should not be left to explore on their own
  • There are no water-based activities from November to February due to low temperatures

The Silverlake country estate offers luxury accommodation in the peace and calm of the freshwater lakes and sweeping countryside views that surround it.  Rest, revive and recharge at the Hurricane Spa by reclining in the heated infinity pool after enjoying a massage or facial in one of the treatment rooms.  Take in the surrounding beauty of the idyllic lakeside views from the spa’s own private beach or blow off steam in state-of the art gym.  

The property’s proximity to the neighbouring lakes means it will be hard to entice yourself away from the water, with kayaks, paddleboards and fishing aplenty.  For those who prefer to stay on dry land why not zip wire over the water instead?  Or grab a bike and take the family off for beautiful bike ride on the wider estate stopping off for a picnic in a tranquil spot whilst nature spotting the local birds and wildlife.
The beautiful county of Dorset is a popular tourist spot, an area known for its rolling dales, protected heathlands and breath-taking UNESCO-heritage Jurassic coastline. The property is within reaching distance of fabulous beaches, including the beautiful shingle Ringsted Bay, which at low tide reveals a wide expanse of sand.  It is the perfect beach for quiet and calm surrounded by neighbouring farmlands.   For those who like to get out and explore the stunning countryside, we recommend a visit to Moreton Forest with a range of tree-filled walks amongst the towering conifers.   

A trip to the Smuggler’s Inn, a historic 13th Century pub with unbeatable sea views of the Isle of Portland is an absolute must with an excellent selection of ales to sample and delicious food, the perfect spot for a pitstop after a lovely scenic stroll.
If you’re looking to take in the area’s fascinating history then you won’t be disappointed with the thousand-year-old Corfe Castle, a majestic ruin established by William the Conqueror, just a short drive away.   Fans of Thomas Hardy can visit Dorchester’s Dorset Museum which houses the largest Hardy Collection in the world, bequeathed by his wife Florence.  Just thirty minutes away, is the picturesque town of Poole, here you can hop on a ferry and visit neighbouring islands or soak up the sunrays on the near-by golden beaches at Sandbanks and Bournemouth.  A visit to the colourful Lighthouse Arts Centre offers art exhibitions, theatre and film then why not finish off the day with some locally caught fish and chips on the beach.

Other close-by towns which are well worth a visit include the charming county town of Weymouth with its recognisable Georgian seafront and the lively market towns of Bridport and Lyme Regis. The famous Durdle Door, a natural limestone arch, is just a twenty-minute car journey away and is a must-visit while in the area.

Life by the water is a kids dream holiday come true with endless wildlife spotting opportunities and a private jetty allowing your little ones to glide off the water and onto the decking for a delicious BBQ lunch with ease.  Inside a cosy fire, Wifi and Smart TV, comfy sofas and a thoughtfully designed bunk room will provide plenty of opportunity to relax after a busy day exploring the countryside estate.

The property possesses a secure position on a gated development with a fun children's playground and tennis courts. There is an 'activity hub' on site where bikes, canoes, kayaks and paddleboards can be borrowed, please note this is subject to availability and so we recommend requesting them at time of booking.  Alongside a children’s playground, little adventurers have endless opportunities to explore from the woodland Island with treeline zipwires and refreshing eco-pool, an excellent spot to toast marshmallows around the campfire. Warm up in the on-site yurt with log-burning fire and neighbouring wood-burning stove where chefs will cook up perfect pizzas to munch on (subject to season.). If you are still hungry check out the Hurricane Terrace Bar for delicious food for all the family, and cocktails for the adults!
With safe, picturesque cycle routes and walks, the estate has something for all ages, we recommend taking part in the Miss Dormouse treasure trail, a family-friendly way to explore the reserve.    

The Jurassic Coast offers some of the UK’s most striking shores.  Dinosaur fans will be in heaven with a day trip to Lyme Regis or Charmouth less than an hour’s drive away.  Go on a fossil hunting tour at Charmouth Beach and visit David Attenborough’s sea dragon discovery in the Charmouth Heritage Centre.  Closer to home Dorchester, just a short drive away has its own Dinosaur Museum with life-size reconstructions, beware the T-rex!  If dinosaurs aren’t your thing, then why not take curious kids to the Tutankhamun Exhibition Centre instead offering a display of exquisite reconstructions of the antechamber and all its treasures within.

A trip to Weymouth wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Sealife centre to take in the sharks, turtles, seals, rays and a thriving Penguin beach with both Humboldt and Fairy penguins.
