A true country idyll near Bridport, this streamside cottage welcomes solo visitors and couples to enjoy a peaceful break from the rhythm of everyday life.

Located in a small village in West Dorset, this property boasts great access to a diverse range of scenes. Head 5 miles away to West Bay and stroll along the beach. Once you’ve walked all you can walk, drive a couple of miles further down the coast and treat yourself to a hot chocolate at a beachside cafe. For an insight into local history and unmissable views, visit Eggardon Hill, 3.5 miles away, the site of an Iron Age hill fort. Closer to home, a popular dog-friendly pub is only 400 metres away from your front door.

A little pathway through a private garden takes you to the front of the cottage. Step into the porch and shake off your coats and boots before heading into the lounge. A spacious, welcoming room, the lounge is kitted out with two comfortable arm chairs and a sofa so you can find your perfect spot. In winter, an open fire provides extra atmosphere and warmth as you unwind with your favourite book. The lounge is also equipped with a TV and DVD player so you can catch up on your favourite soap or watch a film. Passing through the lounge, a step up will take you into the kitchen. With a cute dining table for two and plenty of space for cooking or chatting with a glass of wine, you will immediately make yourself at home. Well-provisioned with everything you could need for your stay, there is an oven with a hob, microwave, toaster and kettle for you to use, and in the adjoining utility room, a fridge, washing machine and dryer. Heading back to the lounge, the bathroom can be found through a door underneath the staircase. Separated into two rooms, the first has a bath with a shower over the bath, and a sink, and the second has a WC. Upstairs, you will find the bedroom. Here, neutral tones are complemented with open beams and pretty details to create a relaxing space. Featuring slightly reduced head height set in the eaves, the bedroom has a double bed for you to sink into for a cosy night’s sleep.

Walking out through the utility room you will reach the property’s rear garden. Sit back with a cup of tea around the outside table and listen to the gentle gurgle of the stream running through the garden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

It s a lovely cottage and we have been to it three times now. We were disappointed to see that the open fire had disappeared and been replaced by a log burner , not quite the same !

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.

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.
