Set within a picturesque village in a conservation area, this pretty brick and flint cottage is ideally placed for spending relaxed days exploring beautiful West Dorset and the Jurassic Coast

1.5 miles from Bridport in the greenery-cloaked village of Bradpole lies this stunning two-bedroom cottage. The ideal hideaway for up to four guests and one dog, family and friends can look forward to self-catering bliss in West Dorset. Surrounded by patchwork countryside and only 3 miles from the sea, live out halcyon dreams whatever the weather.

Stroll up the garden path and appreciate the property’s beguiling brick and flint facade. Once inside, the interiors are just as inviting. Shrug off layers and shoes in the hallway and make your way into the dining room. A delightful room marrying country themes with cute, homely details, the dining room is just perfect for meals overlooking the garden through the original sash window. For a bit of variation, the airy kitchen also has a table and chairs while outside, the enclosed garden comes with a decking area with garden furniture. When you are ready to kick back, the pretty lounge has comfortable seating, French-style wooden shutters and a wood burner-effect electric fire. Switch on the TV for a movie night at home and enjoy the convivial atmosphere. When tiredness starts to prevail, you will find the bedrooms on the first floor. These include a light-filled double bedroom and a twin room, both featuring soothing tones and a nod to the nautical.

In a quiet village location, you can enjoy the best of all worlds. For sandy adventures, head to West Bay (3 miles), Eype (3.5 miles), Burton Bradstock (4 miles) and Charmouth (9 miles). Or, for something a little different, visit neighbouring Bridport (1.5 miles) where a thriving high street offers independent boutiques, curio-stocked antique shops and well-known high street names. For a tipple or bite to eat, there is a dog-friendly pub less than 0.5 miles away.

A nice, comfortable cottage in a quiet village with very useful village stores and butcher's close by. Locals very helpful and friendly. Recommend the Loaders pub a mile away for a decent pub meal. We had a lovely week, super part of the country to visit, so much to do in the area. A very helpful handbook is provided in the cottage.

We had a great stay at Bluebells - its a lovely cottage in a beautiful village. The village itself is quiet but its a short drive to Bridport, Lyme Regis, Charmouth and many other places of interest. The owners were very helpful in providing detailed information on places to go and restaurants and cafes in the area. Strongly recommend!

The cottage was very nice, clean and well equipped. The locations is suitable for going either west or east along the coast. We did not use any of the local pubs/restaurants due to Covid, however we did use restaurants in West Bay a couple in Burton Bradstock at lunchtime. Each of the restuarants were well organised for visitors with Track and TracRead moree being taken as well as restrictions in numbers. The weather was extremely poor but it was October. Hide

This cottage is a little gem in south dorset. Very comfortable, well- equipped and accessible to lots of beaches and places to explore. A larger fridge freezer would be the only thing that would be more helpful for those who like to do a large shop at the start of a week. We will definitely be returning. Fabulous place.

The cottage was beautifully clean & very well equipped, warm and comfortable and a lovely village setting. There is a lovely enclosed rear garden which was lovely to relax in, even this early in the year, and safe for our dog. It is an easy flat walk into Bridport via footpaths by the river. West bay is in easy reach either walking or a short driveRead more. A well stocked little store and post office in the village is really handy.

We had a fantastic Christmas break at Bluebells. They had everything we needed for a great stay, I even cooked a full Christmas dinner and I had everything I needed to do it. Lot's of space, very clean and a lovely garden. A bit further than Bridport than we thought originally but we had the car and explored Bridport, West Bay and Lyme Regis.

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.
