Full of character, this 16th century Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoys an idyllic location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, equidistant to Weymouth and Lyme Regis – perfect for making the most of countryside and coast.

Located on a quiet lane, off the High Street in the heart of the coastal village of Burton Bradstock, you will find a pub, shop and a picturesque sandy beach under a half-mile walk of the cottage. Beyond the village, Weymouth sits 17 miles away, where you can visit the oceanic exhibits of the Jurassic Skyline and the Victorian Nothe Fort harbour along with an abundance of charming seaside shops and eateries. Head just 12.5 miles in the opposite direction to visit the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and Monmouth Beach in the picture-perfect town of Lyme Regis. If countryside walks are more your thing, you are within easy reach of the East Devon AONB and the rolling Blackdown Hills.

Upon entry, you’ll step into the spacious and light-filled lounge/dining room offering bags of character and traditional cottage charm with its feature fireplace and colourful soft furnishings. Fire up the traditional wood burner and sink into the sofa for cosy evenings in front of the Smart TV. A step up leads to the compact yet well-equipped kitchen offering everything you’ll need to cook up the catch of the day before sitting down in the snug dining area to enjoy it. A spacious wet room complete with WC is also located on the ground floor. Please note, there is reduced height in the eaves of this room. When the day is done, make your way up the cottage-style winding staircase to discover a bright and airy bedroom boasting a comfortable 5ft double bed with reduced head height in the eaves.

To the rear of the cottage, a low doorway leads out to a gently sloping garden complete with flower beds, fruit trees and a lovely little vegetable garden. Linked by a set of small stone steps is a terraced area where you can start your morning with a coffee as you take in your peaceful surroundings or enjoy a spot of al fresco dining during the warmer months. Furthermore, you are within walking distance of a sandy beach, so you can truly appreciate this wonderful location. The cottage offers roadside parking.

Please note, there is a little-used right of way to the adjoining cottage.

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
