Nestled within the pretty village of Burton Bradstock and within walking distance to the beach, this pretty cottage is an ideal holiday home for couples and families alike.

This beautiful end-terrace cottage is located on a quiet village road overlooking thatched cottages on the edge of  the village. Situated in Burton Bradstock, it benefits from having a local shop and two pubs within 300 metres, as well as Hive Beach less than a mile away, making it perfect for a family or group wishing to leave the car behind for a few days.

Inside is immaculate accommodation, combining character features – like ceiling beams, window seats and wooden flooring – with modern additions. The sitting/dining room has been designed with socialising in mind, with comfy seating around the wood burner and a lovely farmhouse-style dining table for special meals together. The kitchen has a countryside feel, with wooden worktops and a Belfast sink, and enjoys views over the garden. There’s also a family bathroom on this floor. Upstairs, there are three well-proportioned bedrooms – a double, a twin and a single (with 3ft x 5ft 9 single bed) - all enjoying lovely views. A shower room ensures everyone has space to get ready in the morning. The outside of this property is where it really comes into its own. A sunny cottage-style garden extends 80ft, with a courtyard, terraces and a summer house giving plenty of opportunity to enjoy this space whatever the weather. Parking is available on the village lane near the property.

After spending time by the beach and on the South West Coast Path, head to Bridport (3 miles), where you can visit the twice-weekly market to pick up some bargains or a souvenir from the trip. 2 miles away from the cottage is the resort of West Bay, with its working harbour and popular restaurants making it well worth a visit.

  • 3 bedrooms – 1 double, 1 twin and 1 single (with 3' x 5'9'' bed)
  • Discounts available for couples staying during off peak periods between November and Easter (please call to enquire)
  • 2 bathrooms – 1 bathroom with bath with overhead shower and WC on the ground floor; 1 shower room and WC on the first floor (please note access to shower is via two small steps)

A lovely warm and cosy cottage with a beautiful well kept garden. Lovely bedrooms with great beds and bedding. Everything we needed was there. We were a party of 5 adults and there was plenty of room for everyone. Great location, short drive to West Bay, Eype and Bridport - all well worth a visit. We walked to Hive beach where the Dorset apple cakeRead more was to die for. We are planning another visit next spring. Hide

Folly Cottage is set in beautiful Burton Bradstock, which has 2 pubs and a post office/shop which catered for all our needs. Bridport 3 miles away is an attractive town with many more shops and eateries. The cottage was so comfortable and equipped with everything we needed, we cooked and ate in most evenings.

Very clean very well equipped cottage, 10 min walk to beach, 5 mins to play park. A short drive to Lyme Regis is highly recommended. Market is very good at Bridgeport too. 20 mins from Devon as well so plenty to do

Cottage was small, cosy and sufficient for a week. Burton Bradstock is a great village and Hive beach is great and only 15 minutes walk. West Bay only 1.5 miles away and again, nice to visit. Lyme Regis and Weymouth are a little further afield but would recommend both.

A cosy cottage which has been furnished to a high standard, in a lovely village. The wood burner was particularly welcome in the winter evenings. It makes a great base as there is much to see and do either a short walk or drive away. Looking forward to coming back.

My 5th visit to Folly Cottage and wouldn't dream about going elsewhere. Missed out in 2018 due to owners adding a 3rd bedroom extension. Result? Absolutely superb!!

The cottage was lovely and comfortable. The space worked well for our family with 3 children (although we had to watch out for the low beams!). The garden and summerhouse were lovely and much enjoyed. The cottage is in a lovely little village in a good location for exploring Dorset. There is no parking or pavement outside the property and as per a Read moreprevious review, there are frequently cars driving quite fast along the road, which made us quite wary with young children.

Lovely cottage set in a very convenient location for exploring West Dorset. Plenty of eating places to choose from and two good pubs within easy walking distance. Would stay there again and would happily recommend to friends.

We really liked the cottage, it was nicely renovated yet still retained enough features to remind you that it would have been a farmworker's cottage. The beds were comfortable - good mattresses - this can't always be said of a rental cottage. It was an easy walk to everywhere in Burton Bradstock, including the beach. The road/lane at the front was Read morenoisy in the morning once the traffic got going. A lot of people clearly use the road leading to/from Shipton Gorge to get to and from the A road at the top. I noticed this as my husband and I had the front bedroom and due to warm weather we had the windows open overnight. Windows are double-glazed, I think, so when shut they do a good job of keeping the noise down. We enjoyed the garden at the back. Hide

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.
