Set in a charming village near the stunning Dorset coast, this Grade II listed fisherman’s stone cottage offers cosy and stylish accommodation for a couple or a family seeking an idyllic retreat.
This pretty thatched stone two-bedroom cottage is an ideal countryside retreat for three, with the beach just under a mile away. Situated in the quiet town of Burton Bradstock just 160 metres from the local pub, this cottage is perfect for a small family looking for a relaxing holiday away. A Grade II listed building, it retains many original features that add to its charm.
Enter the cottage straight into a cosy L-shaped living area, with a dining table and comfy sofas to sink into after a long day. Enjoy a good book on the wooden window seat among dark exposed beams, while being warmed by the wood burner, and feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A compact kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm, while the porch that leads to the back garden has space for boots and coats. Head up the stairs to a double bedroom with comforting decor and reduced height at the eaves – watch your head on the wood beams. A small single room has attractive furnishings that make this a welcoming room to retire to, and the shower room next door has beautiful tiles that add a little bit of indulgence to your stay. Outside, a small enclosed courtyard gets plenty of sun and is protected by stone walls and shrubs – ideal for an al fresco drink in the evenings.
Head down to Hive Beach for long stretches of sand, just under a mile away, and enjoy an ice cream or drink at the cafe. The South West Coast Path runs along here, so spend the day walking for miles if you’ve got the right shoes! Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens (6.5 miles) is also lovely for a stroll and has a rich history dating back to the 16th century.
