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.

We spent a lovely weekend in this warm and welcoming cottage. Nestled in a quiet location in the heart of Bridport, it was in an ideal location to walk to all the amenities and had the benefit of lovely dog walks from the doorstep. The walk to West Bay was lovely and the area is so dog friendly. Highly recommend this charming cottage!

This is a very comfortable, cosy cottage. All the facilities you would expect; Freesat, wifi, central heating, and others you wouldn't; log burning fire, dishwasher, power shower.

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.
