Set in the heart of the quaint village of Burton Bradstock, this sweet thatched cottage is the perfect antidote to stressful lives. Just a half-mile walk from dog-friendly Hive Beach and cafe, two wonderful pubs and a superb restaurant and bar, you’re never short of local food and fun.

Prepare sumptuous local seafood on the AGA in the spacious and characterful kitchen/diner amidst pretty tiles, deep-set windows, copper pans and original bricks and beams. Upstairs, soak in a steaming tub in the blissful seaside bathroom, before a nightcap and a sweet sleep in one of the three dreamy bedrooms, each with original features such as floorboards, a fireplace and exquisite views through nine-paned windows. Enjoy bright breakfasts and convivial feasts in the glorious walled garden with its suntraps and verdant bounties.
