Full of character and charm, this quaint and cosy cottage is the perfect bolthole for a romantic retreat. Explore the nearby markets and visit the historic seaside resort of West Bay on the Jurassic Coast.

Studded in a row of picturesque Grade II listed stone cottages, this property offers a delightful countryside escape. It lies just 200 yards from Beaminster’s bustling market square and is surrounded by four of Dorset’s highest peaks, offering excellent walking and cycling routes. The historic town of Bridport is 6 miles away, with the charming West Bay fishing village – famed for being the setting for TV drama ‘Broadchurch’ – just 8 miles away.

Enter through the porch and into a hall, where there is space to hang your coats and kick off any muddy boots or sandy shoes, then immediately step into the spacious and welcoming lounge. With flagstone floor and a wood burner within a large beamed inglenook fireplace, here you will feel in the heart of the countryside as you watch the TV or play music on the iPod dock. The open-plan kitchen/dining room has an oak floor and worktops and has French doors leading to the secluded garden. You will find the kitchen area well-equipped with an oven and hob, microwave and dishwasher. Head up the cottage-style stairs and into the beamed double bedroom, watching your head on the reduced height eaves. Here you will also find the bathroom with a shower over the bath.

The pretty south-west facing walled garden has a limestone paved terrace where you will find the BBQ – fire it up on warmer evenings and enjoy dinner alfresco – as well as a lawned area and a variety of plants and shrubs. Road parking is available on the lane.

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

Bell Cottage was lolvely and fit the bill to a tee

Cosy cottage for 2. Tastefully furnished and decorated. Well equiped. Steep stairs with narrow turning point would be a challenge for those with mobility issues.

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.
