Full of character, this 16th century Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoys an idyllic location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is in a great location to explore the region.

A picture-postcard thatched cottage in Burton Bradstock, this property for two guests has the whole package. Homely interiors, nearby shop (10 yards) and pub (25 yards) and access to rolling coastline, you will be spoilt for choice for things to see and do. With so much on offer, enjoy relaxation and exploration in equal measures and let the charm of this Grade II-listed cottage win you over entirely.

A 16th-century terrace cottage, this property has history and character in abundance. Step up through the front door and head into the lounge. A spacious room with wood burner, you can immediately make yourself at home. Sink into the sofa and turn on the TV or bury yourself in a book. From the lounge, a small step up takes you towards the kitchen. Cute and compact, the kitchen has all the appliances and utensils you could need, including oven and hob. Also, on the ground floor is the wet room, fitted with shower and WC. Up the steep, cottage-style stairs you can find the light and airy bedroom, sporting soothing tones and a king-size bed. In true period fashion, the bedroom has a low window and some reduced head height in the eaves. Outside, there is a spacious, enclosed garden accessed via a small set of steps. Split over different tiers, you can make use of the garden’s seating or take a blanket onto the lawn for summer picnics.

Boasting great access to local amenities and attractions, you don’t have to go far for action. Less than 1 mile from the beach, walk along the shoreline and breathe in fresh sea air, before paying a visit to one of the seafront cafes. Only 2 miles from West Bay, a trip to this small harbour village is definitely recommended. For shopping, Bridport (3 miles) is the place to go.

We had a wonder stay and lots to see around and about. The cottage is basic but what would you expect of something so quaint and of its' age. Don't expect luxury! Enjoy the locality and the beautiful surroundings it has to offer. Better suited to those not of a certain age!

Good location; very close to local amenities and a short walk to the beach. Good parking spots right outside. The garden was lovely - the bench at the back would benefit from a clean. The cottage was cosy, but the bed pillows are uncomfortable - too flat and firm. Difficult to fall asleep initially. Better pillows advised. A deep clean is needed - Read moreespecially the red carpet in the living room. Visibly dirty with a smell to it. Good board games. Great place if you're spending more time outdoors. Hide

Very good stay. The cottage is very well situated and the two village pubs and Post Office (next door but one) are all excellent. The cottage is small, but quite adequate for two. There is a very nice garden. The stairs are steep and not really suitable for those with any sort of limited mobility

We stayed in this bijou cottage for a week in a beautiful Dorset village. It is small but perfect for two people and is well equipped. No phone signal but the WiFi is very good. There is no designated parking but we always managed to get a space outside on the road. Excellent location with two really good pubs yards away and the beach is only a shoRead morert walk. The cottage has a beautiful garden, a real bonus. If you like character cottages this is the perfect destination. Hide

Charming cottage in a great location and would visit the area again, however disappointed with the cleanliness and quality of the furnishings in the property. In need of a proper clean and some tlc. Felt a bit overpriced for what we got.

The cottage is lovely and quaint with a very mature garden. Due to the age of the property there are several low door frames. Perfect size for two people to enjoy a break away. Great village location and a couple of doors down from the post office/general store and one of the two pubs. This however made for really noisy early mornings presumably duRead moree to deliveries.

The cottage is ideally placed in the pretty village of Burton Bradstock, close to the sea & near to Bridport and Lyme Regis. It is adequately furnished with all the basic amenities and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen is very small, but apart from breakfast, we ate out or with friends. The shower was good, but sometimes water seeping under the Read moredoor to the hall meant limiting the flow of water - not ideal! Some might find the twisting stairs a bit tricky. The garden is lovely on a sunny day! Hide

This is a lovely cottage with lots of character but it needs a little tlc . It has a lovely garden but the owners do need to ensure that it is more regularly maintained. The location is perfect but do book early for the pub as it is excellent and very popular.
