Property code: DC059

Stunning hamstone cottage set within the tranquil village of Uploders, with three bedrooms, BBQ terrace and a wild meadow garden.

This beautifully-presented traditional ham stone cottage sits in a peaceful rural location with far-reaching views across rolling Dorset countryside. Just 3 miles from the coast at Burton Bradstock and the bustling market town of Bridport, it is perfect for family holidays. While warm summer evenings can be enjoyed in the stunning wild meadow garden, cosy nights in are best spent curled up on the stylish sofas in this property’s charming lounge.

Prepare and enjoy family meals in the double aspect kitchen/diner, which has been beautifully finished with tiled flooring, a butler sink, oak worktops and pantry for making yourselves at home. With a pretty window seat, large dining table and door opening onto the garden, this is a fantastic entertaining space for both day and night. At the end of a busy day, put your feet up in the lounge next door, where you will find an iPod dock and electric flame effect fire, before sinking into one of the five inviting beds in this property’s three elegantly styled bedrooms. Please note, these all have slight reduced height in the eaves. When the sun is shining, step out to the enclosed patio and enjoy a tasty BBQ with the family or take the path up to the glorious sloping wild cottage garden. There is parking on the village lane.

Set in a peaceful pocket of Dorset countryside surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this idyllic property is a great choice for keen walkers and guests wishing to get away from it all. Just 3 miles away is the quaint market town of Bridport, home to a good choice of shops, cafes and pubs, while the iconic cliffs of West Bay lie just 5 miles away. From here, the stunning Chesil Beach stretches all the way to the Isle of Portland (18 miles) in the east, perfect for long walks, watersports and swimming.

Lovely location but rather old fashioned furniture and damp feeling throughout. No mobile reception other than at very top of steep garden. Parking ok but a little worrying with plenty of through traffic. In our view the cottage was not really value for money.

Overall, our stay at Gemini cottage was excellent. It was comfortable and clean, and good family space. Well equipped throughout and located in a beautiful village with a local pub serving superb food. The nearby beaches, particularly Hive Beach, were great.

The cottage was lovely, the grandchildren had a great time playing in the garden. The village was peaceful with good pubs nearby, also close to Bridport, West Bay and Dorchester. We all had a wonderful time, thank you.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We found lots of pubs in the area for dinner and the scenery is beyond compare. The cottage is well equipped although the shower isnt a strong point.

We loved staying at this cosy, inviting cottage. It is in a beautiful area and is very peaceful (perfect location for meeting up with our sons who live in Exeter and Bournemouth!)
