A charming former mill dating back to the 1800s, offering a contemporary home-from-home in the heart of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of the Jurassic Coast.

One of four properties in a converted cider mill farm in Netherbury, this beautiful cottage provides ideal self-catering accommodation for solo adventurers or couples. Just steps away from the River Brit, it reaps the benefits of its pastoral setting whilst providing a modern, homely base. Creating a light, bright and stylish space finished with lots of attractive details and thoughtful touches, you will immediately feel at ease. For local conveniences, there is a pub 1 mile away and shops 2 miles away.

On one level, this cottage has an open-plan design and vaulted double-height ceilings adding to the spacious feel. Come inside through the stable door and take in the comfortable and contemporary vibes. With a sofa and armchair, and providing books as well as a TV, there are plenty of options for relaxing at home. Pour yourself some tea in the kitchen as the wood burner glows in winter or cook up a mouth-watering feast. To lend a sense of occasion to meals, there is a dining table for two. In the bedroom, an equally attractive space awaits. Featuring a double bed and lots of light, you can start your day feeling refreshed and revived. Attached to the bedroom is the en-suite bathroom with large shower cubicle, WC and heated towel rail. Outside, you can fully appreciate nature with the sounds of the mill stream and wild birds. Feel free to make use of the shared, sloping gardens or cross over the small footbridge to get to your own private garden with BBQ and two terraces; a real summer haven.

Surrounded by verdant fields and pretty country lanes, walks are in abundance nearby. For a coastal backdrop, head to West Bay (6.5 miles) and go for a drink in the beachside cafe. Of course, there are lots of town adventures to be had too, with Beaminster 2 miles and Bridport 5 miles away.

Lovely setting and cottage right size for us. Great shower very easy to work which made a pleasant change. Very well equipped had all we needed.

Reviewed by Robert 23rd August 2019

It was a lovely cottage with everything you need provided. I would not recommend it for families with children as it is too distant from the beach at West Bay and there are no local facilities for them.

Absolutely loved the cottage and location. Quiet, nice local walks. All made for a very relaxing week The Half Moon pub at Melplash just down the road offered a nice ambience and great food.

My third visit to Bramble Lodge, and I will visit again.

Reviewed by Mrs A Lardner 31st August 2018

The cottage, although only one bedroomed, seemed quite spacious. It was always warm, in spite of being Christmas time. Theres a lovely log burner, but it never got cold enough for us to light it!! The kitchen was well equipped, though there is no dishwasher (not a problem for us as we dont have one either!) The bed was comfortable and the bathroom Read morelarge. A rug on the window side of the bed would have been nice as the tiled floor is quite cold. The low key Christmas decorations were ideal as we were trying to get away from all the hype. Overall, a lovely place to stay. Hide

Yes, it was fabulous. We would highly recommend Bramble Lodge.

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.
