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.

  • Sleeps 4+1
  • Discounts available for couples staying during off peak periods between November and Easter (please call to enquire)

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

A very well decorated and fitted out cosy cottage

Reviewed by Mr N Flenley 31st August 2018

Excellent accommodation, with good quality fixtures and fittings. Beautiful garden and outside eating area. Bathrooms and kitchen clean but living room and bedrooms would have benefitted from a more thorough clean (cobwebs on ornaments and dust under sofas and beds. There is limited parking and not adjacent to the property.

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.
