  • The perfect retreat for two, this character cottage is an ideal bolt-hole whatever the season
  • Tucked away in a small lane with no passing traffic, yet just a few steps from the vibrant heart of Bridport 
  • Stroll along the nearby riverside with your four-legged friends and admire the natural surroundings
  • Take a gentle walk to the beach and harbour at West Bay where you can join the South West Coast Path along the Jurassic Coast
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.

The cottage is in good condition and well looked after. It's fairly central, making it ideal for shopping, eating out, or the visiting the market. The only real issue was parking, as the pay and display is only a short stay car-park. There is a long stay carpark at the stadium which is only a 5 minute walk from the cottage which solved this problemRead more. We really enjoyed our stay, and would repeat. Hide

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
