Property code: 75565

This charming character cottage is an ideal getaway within walking distance to the Jurassic Coast and boasts a cosy wood burner and a pretty, secluded cottage garden which is fully enclosed. 

Escape to this exquisite terraced cottage, which nestles at the heart of the colourful Dorset market town of Bridport and sleeps up to two guests. Take two contented canines with you too, if you choose, and let them stretch their legs in your picturesque surroundings. Stroll along the stunning, sandy beach at West Bay or explore the Jurassic Coast by attempting a stretch of the South West Coast Path, with its high cliff views. Return to your cosy cottage to bask in the warmth of the wood burner.

Climb two steps into this characterful home to find yourself in the welcoming lounge/diner. Settle down on the comfortable seating, light the wood burner and enjoy a film on the Smart TV. Wander through to the kitchen, which is up another step and has a quarry tiled floor and a door leading to the delightful back garden. Prepare romantic meals for two in here with the fresh Dorset produce you have bought in the town's independent shops or market, then dine together at the table. As day turns to night, make your way up the cottage-style stairs to the beautiful bedroom and shower room. Enjoy your enclosed garden as often as the weather permits. Climb the steps to its seating area, light the BBQ and enjoy a cold drink while your supper sizzles.

Spend summer days on the beach at West Bay, almost 2 miles away; play on the sand, take a dip in the sea and hunt for fossils. From here, you can also take a boat trip along the Jurassic Coast, and those who are sporty can go water skiing or wakeboarding. On rainy days, visit the Bridport Museum, less than 0.5 miles from your base, or take a tour of Palmers Brewery.

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

What a gorgeous little cottage! We loved the location for being so central and, once the pubs and restaurants have stopped serving, it is really quiet. The garden is a little joy.

We enjoyed the central location of the cottage in Bridport where we found a number of great dog walking routes around the town. Lots of choices in where to eat and go for a drink in dog friendly pubs. The garden is a great asset as a nice sun trap. Well povisioned with an excellent TV !

An excellent cottage which is very well located. The only drawback - which is beyond the control of the owners - is that sometimes the allocated street parking spot is taken by others. However, the very close long stay car park always had spaces available whan we needed them. Overall we had a lovely holiday in this cottage.

The perfect little cottage! Lovely, well decorated cottage and well kept cottage garden. The location was perfect too. We appreciated the supply of a dog bed and bowls, every item of equipment or furniture that we might need was on hand. The cottage does not come with a parking space but we planned ahead and used the long stay car park, 5 mins walkRead more, 13 for sun-sat. Beautiful coastal walks and West Bay just 30 mins walk. 5 mins to the high street, a perfect location. Hide

Location

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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
