Ex Officio is located in the idyllic villagge of East Chaldon or Chalkdon Herring as it may otherwise be known and can be found off the A352 just south of Lulworth Cove. This light and airy conversion able to sleep five/six is one of a pair. Originally an office for a coach company, it was converted in 2007 into light and airy 3-bed accommodation able to sleep five (six with a pull-out) with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor to cater for the less agile. It is one of a pair, attached to its smaller sister accommodation, Rex Officio, yet has its own separate entrance and garden area. Constructed of local stone and brick under a tiled roof, it has flag stone flooring throughout. Heating is by oil-fire. Please be aware that only vodafone mobiles may work, but there is wi-fi in the cottage so wi-fi calling will work if your mobile has that feature.

Chaldon Herring is a small farming community with a village green in the centre but does have a pub offering food and outside seating facilities. Village shops including a good baker and butcher and several other good local pubs are scattered around the area.

Ideally placed for ramblers and lovers of peaceful countryside, with walks emanating from the village to the South West Coastal Path stretching from St Aldhelms Head to Exmouth. Four miles away lies the picturesque coastal village of Lulworth Cove famous for its rock strata and nearby Durdle Door. Whilst off the beaten track, it is nevertheless central to the neighbouring towns of Weymouth, a sandy-beach seaside resort with family attractions and gateway to Portland or Abbotsbury for its swannery and gardens or, to the north, the county town of Dorchester. In the other direction, find Wareham, a walled Saxon town on the river Frome and gateway to the isle of Purbeck offering Corfe Castle and beaches of Studland and Swanage. The snatched village of Tyneham, open mostly only on weekends must be visited.
