This cosy former fisherman’s cottage is named after a boat and boasts period features like a thatched roof and thick stone walls. This is a typical country chocolate-box cottage.

This is a gem of a property, perfectly situated for short walks to the sea and opposite a beautiful old church. The picturesque village of Burton Bradstock, with its thatched fishermen’s cottages, friendly locals and a selection of shops, has a timeless appeal. The shop and pub are 100 yards away, and the beach is half a mile - perfect for a spot of dog walking or stone-skipping. The property is located 3 miles from Bridport with its working harbour and cafes, and only 15 miles from the beautiful town of Weymouth with its tourist attractions including Weymouth Harbour, Weymouth Beach, Nothe Fort and Jurassic Safari around the coast. All in all, this accommodation provides a wonderful base for exploring, and homely features to snuggle up at the end of a long day.

Set within a row of pretty fishermen’s cottages, the property’s entrance is typical of a Grade II listed country cottage, with a low door frame and straight into an L-shaped lounge/dining room with a beamed ceiling (some low beams). There is a Smart TV and Hi-Fi for entertainment and a window seat for appreciating the gorgeous views outside. The kitchen is fully up to date with modern appliances and there is a small utility area housing the tumble drier. The outside terrace is accessed via a stable door from the kitchen. On going upstairs, there are two bedrooms (a double and single) with exposed beams and reduced ceiling height due to the location in the eaves, plus a bathroom with a small bath. There is central heating throughout and Wi-Fi for use.

This property has a small unenclosed courtyard garden to the rear surrounded by stone walls. The garden benefits from the sun during the day and is ideal for sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the fresh air. There is parking on the lane nearby.


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

We both absolutely loved the cottage and would definitely go there again. It was all done up so well and with such taste. It was very cosy and so convenient to places around there and walks nearby too.

Its hard to find a cottage which isnt dated. Lerrett Cottage is an exception. It has been decorated simply and tastefully with great attention to detail. Theres even a collection of items in each of the chest drawers downstairs. You can walk to Hive Beach and its a short drive to Bridport and West Bay. The cottage is also just round the corner to aRead more lovely dog friendly pub where we had good food. A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous part of the country. Hide

Lerrett Cottage is a gem of a place, located perfectly for short walks to the sea and a short drive to shops in Bridport. Opposite a beautiful old church and a short hop to two lovely pubs. The picturesque village of Burton Bradstock, with its thatched cottages and friendly people is from another time. The food in both pubs is excellent. It's quietRead more and the cottage has all the modern amenities you'd expect. The beds are comfy and our stay was very relaxing. The only downside was having to leave! Will definitely be returning.

It was beautiful and had a feel of luxury with such good attention to detail. I was delighted with the high standard and it was very thoughtful to provide bread, scones, jam, clotted cream and fresh flowers throughout the cottage on arrival. It went above and beyond my expectations

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.
