A charming semi-detached cottage in the quaint village of Eype provides a homely base with original features for exploring the area, either on your own or with your dog.

Situated in the picturesque village of Eype, this cottage is ideally located for access to a wide variety of local walks, local shops, and makes a home-from-home base for exploring further the wonders of this part of Dorset. Eype is located half a mile from the local shingle beach which is ideal for dog walking and taking in nature. The coastal walks are spectacular, but if you want to go a little further afield, Bridport is only 2 miles away and boasts a working harbour surrounded by cafes.

This charming semi-detached cottage is accessed via 10 stone steps leading down from the village lane. The property is entered through the small hall which then leads directly into a cosy lounge/diner. This space has a wealth of original features from the open fire and inglenook fireplace, to the feature bread oven and double window seats. The spacious double aspect kitchen has all modern appliances: fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, and is a good size for cooking the family dinner. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, both with original exposed wooden floors and there is also the family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Outside of the property, there is a small garden to the front of the property mainly laid to lawn with a few potted shrubs. At the rear of the property, there is a sloping lawn with countryside views, a terrace and a paved area housing the sun house and BBQ. This is accessed via some steps, and the whole rear garden is set on a slope. The rear garden is ideal for outdoor living and warmer evenings. There is designated parking for one car 10 yards away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
