Property code: DC016

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.

  • Electric hob and oven, undercounter fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine

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.

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.

The location of cottage is good got exploring the coastal area. Not the ideal cottage for anyone who is particularly tall as ceilings as low. Ideal for a short break there is everything you would need with the added bonus of a great pub just a few doors down. Definitely only suitable for 2 people, the wet room makes the most of the available space Read morebut some larger towels would be appreciated. Hide

The cottage is in a good location for visiting the area and also well placed for eating out. The outdoor space at the rear of the property is lovely and is a great asset in sunny weather.

The cottage is well located in a lovely village. The bedroom is cosy and bright. Downstairs is well kitted out, the kitchen is small but we didn't do any cooking so didn't matter. The garden is a bonus, to be able to sit out was very nice. The only downside is the downstairs bathroom which is not nice at all.

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.
