A charming property on the edge of the beautifully preserved village of Burton Bradstock, this cottage has a large private garden with flowing countryside views as well as rare proximity to the sea and a beautiful beach.

This former coastguard cottage is the perfect size for a family looking to explore the Dorset coast. Just a short stroll from a beautiful Jurassic Coast beach and a few steps from the South West Coastal Path, this charming stone cottage is set on the edge of the beautiful village of Burton Bradstock. Surrounded by National Trust fields in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can enjoy the best of the countryside and coast. Local facilities including a village shop, two cosy pubs, a popular foodie beach café, and a highly acclaimed hotel restaurant with majestic sea views - all just a short walk away.

Step into the cottage through the charming wooden door to discover spacious living spaces with calming, neutral decor and character features throughout. Pick a sofa to curl up on for a family night in, snuggling in front of the log burner or watching the TV. Walk through the latched door into the kitchen to rustle up something delicious for everyone to eat, or pore over the morning papers with a cup of coffee. Then climb the stairs to discover three spacious bedrooms. Enjoy the views from the window seat in the master bedroom or soak in the en-suite bath after a long day exploring. There’s a separate bathroom upstairs, too. Outside, you’ll discover a large lawn surrounded by trees, shrubs and outstanding views as well as a BBQ for dining alfresco. Relax on the garden chairs while the kids play and enjoy the countryside views. Parking is available on a lane 200 metres away from the property.

There’s no end of things to see and do along the Jurassic coast. When you’ve had your fill of beach days, take the kids to the Subtropical Gardens or the Children’s Farm, both at Abbotsbury (7 miles). Bridport’s Wednesday and Saturday markets (3.5 miles) will delight shopaholics and bargain-hunters alike. And if you’re feeling energetic, climb Golden Cap (7 miles), where your effort will be rewarded by stunning coastal views.

Our third time of staying in Cliff cottage, so we appreciate that it is still available to hire out, with the new owners. East Court, Shipton Gorge, where we stayed 2 yrs. ago was delightful, but having no shop and a steep rear garden/terraced too, proved difficult with a dog & older member of the family. We really love Burton Bradstock, & hope to Read morestay there again, sometime next year. Hide

The cottage was spacious and comfortable in a great location and a lovely place to return to after a day on the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful cottage in a beautiful area. The cottage and area made for a perfect, relaxing holiday.

I have stayed at Cliff Cottage several times and love it's location, and the pretty secluded garden with wonderful views over Burton Bradstock.

Reviewed by Mrs G Gregory 5th October 2018

We love this cottage. The location is perfect and we love the garden. The beds are the comfiest I have ever slept in. We could tell the cottage has had a lick of paint which it did need. I was disappointed to see the kettle had not been replaced. I commented last time that the pouring filter off the kettle was missing and so it is impossible to makRead moree a cup of tea without a load of limescale ending up in there. Kettles are not expensive to buy and this time I may even take my own with me. But on the whole the cottage is very good. Hide

Lovely location, wonderful views from the main bedroom & garden. Kitchen adequate if somewhat old-fashioned. No downstairs toilet, is a drawback.

Reviewed by Miss E Taylor 22nd August 2018

Have stayed previously and always find it a nice suitable cottage but could maybe do with a lick of paint.

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.
