  • Charming Grade II listed cottage set in the heart of a beautiful rural Dorset village
  • A cosy getaway surrounded by rolling countryside and scenic walks
  • Within easy reach of the stunning Jurassic Coast which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Property code: 76433

Steeped in history, this character cottage is within easy reach of the stunning Jurassic Coast and the vibrant town of Bridport, or why not simply relax beside the fire before visiting the village pub

Retreat to this gorgeous cottage, which dates back to the 18th century and sits at the heart of the village of Loders, 2 miles from Bridport. Light the wood burner for cosy nights in or soak up the sunshine in the delightful, terraced garden. Head out from the stone property, which sleeps up to three guests, to explore the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - walk along the striking Jurassic Coast and spend summer days on the beach. Bring one four-legged friend with you if you wish.

Take two steps up into this pretty terraced home to find yourself in the hall; then another step up to feel the warm embrace of the character-filled lounge. Stoke the wood burner in the stone inglenook fireplace and watch a film on the Smart TV, before preparing something tasty with fresh produce from the market in Bridport in your kitchen at the back of the cottage - dining together at the table. Find your family bathroom and WC also at ground-floor level. Due to the age of the property, there are changes in level peppered throughout. As night falls, climb the winding cottage-style staircase up to your two charming bedrooms with their vaulted ceilings and low beams. On warm days, carry breakfast, lunch or dinner up the steps to the seating area at the top of the garden or simply relax with a cup of tea after a long country walk.

Head just over 3.5 miles to spectacular West Bay with its two beautiful beaches: picnic on East Beach against the backdrop of the sandstone cliffs or paddle in the quieter cove of West Beach. Walk along the harbour's Jurassic Pier with an ice cream or pull on your hiking boots and climb the coast path to the top of the cliffs. Visit bustling Bridport for an array of independent shops, restaurants and different markets selling everything from delicious local produce to antiques.

Lovely clean, well equipped and comfortable cottage. A number of added extras, fresh flowers, delicious cakes and fresh milk in the fridge upon arrival all of which made our stay even more perfect. Location was good just a short drive from Bridport, the village of Lodders is peaceful and the pub opposite very friendly.

This lovely cottage is situated in a very quiet village, yet only a 10 minute ride from Bridport and West Bay. It is well equipped with everything you would need, and is tastefully decorated. We stayed there over Christmas and the hosts had decorated the cottage, complete with Christmas tree, a lovely Christmas gift and a supply of logd of the fireRead more. It made our stay that much more special. We wanted to chill out and relax, and with the pub across the road, we certainly did that. Hide

Libra Cottage is absolutely lovely. It was warm and spotlessly clean when we arrived - with coffee, tea, milk and delicious cakes in the house. The location is perfect for walking and hiking. The cottage itself is so cosy that it was hard to do anything in the evenings bar sit in the warmth of the wood burning stove. Having said that, the Loders ArRead morems across the road is a fantastic pub, with great beer and superb food! We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and would absolutely recommend it. Hide
