Wonderfully located in the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage, make yourselves at home in this inviting bolthole. Leave the car behind and stroll around the local town of Bridport (1 mile) or visit the beaches at West Bay (1.5 miles) before cosying up at your home from home for a relaxing night. Perfect for romantic escapes, this home sleeps two guests and has an enclosed garden where you can enjoy sunsets and sundowners.

Step up and make your way inside to get comfortable on the recliners in the welcoming lounge where a wood burner effect electric fire promises to keep the chill at bay. Settle down with a book or put your favourite film on and unwind. Heading up to the first floor you can find the pretty kitchen/diner which overlooks the garden below. Rustle up delicious feasts for two and dine at the table, or head back downstairs and into the garden for an al fresco meal. Before heading to bed on the first floor, grab your clothes from the dryer, which can be found in an adjacent outbuilding, so you are ready for the day ahead. Snuggle under the covers and drift off for a peaceful sleep in the king-size bedroom which is light and airy. Rise feeling refreshed to start your day, or if you’re heading out early, rinse off in the walk in shower. There is roadside parking on the private lane outside for one car.

Perfectly positioned for exploring iconic locations on the Jurassic Coast, wander 1.5 miles to West Bay for a beach day to remember. Fill your day with sea swims, sunbathing and fish and chips or walk 5 miles to the National Trust owned Golden Cap Estate and wander high above the ocean for magnificent views. Spend a morning strolling the streets of Bridport (1 mile) which are dotted with quirky shops and eateries so you can book a table and enjoy a date night away from the kitchen.

The Dairy is a super little cottage and this was our third stay. It's perfect for a couple, in a quiet location. Situated between the town and the beach, it's an easy/level 1 mile walk to either., plus loads of access to the hills. The cottage has everything you need and the owners are very welcoming. The perfect cosy getaway
