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

This handsome cottage is located in the small village of Uploders and has a traditional exterior arising from the beautiful honey-coloured hamstone used in construction, sourced from neighbouring Somerset. Uploders is within easy driving distance of the Iron Age hill fort of Eggardon hill (2 miles) and Bridport is only a 3-mile drive away with its bustling shopping area and quirky markets. The River Asker runs through the village and is just the place for peaceful river bank walks.

The property is accessed up three steps through the hall into the open-plan kitchen/dining room which has a useful pantry for storing shopping items and a window seat. The sitting room has an additional window seat as well as a feature fireplace with electric fire giving warmth and a cosy feel to the room. The comfortable furniture continues this theme and lends itself easily to evenings curled up watching a favourite show or reading a good book. There is also a bathroom with shower on the ground floor. The upstairs of the property has reduced height in the eaves and there are three bedrooms, all with original beams. There is an additional bathroom for easy access from the bedrooms.

The cottage is located off the village lane so does not have a front garden, however, the rear garden more than makes up for this, with extensive views of the local countryside and Eggardon hill in the distance. There is a well-appointed terrace with plants and BBQ for outside living. There is a further terrace leading onto a wild meadow garden to experience nature up close.

  • 3 bedrooms - 1 double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms (one with raised bed)
  • 1 bathroom and 1 shower room
  • Recessed range oven, fridge, microwave, washing machine, freezer, dishwasher and pantry

The cottage was in an excellent location for using as a base to explore the area. It was well stocked with everything we needed, was warm and cosy to sit in an evening.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
