  • Charming Grade II listed cottage set in the heart of a beautiful rural Dorset village
  • A cosy getaway surrounded by rolling countryside and scenic walks
  • Within easy reach of the stunning Jurassic Coast which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Property code: 76433

Steeped in history, this character cottage is within easy reach of the stunning Jurassic Coast and the vibrant town of Bridport, or why not simply relax beside the fire before visiting the village pub

Retreat to this gorgeous cottage, which dates back to the 18th century and sits at the heart of the village of Loders, 2 miles from Bridport. Light the wood burner for cosy nights in or soak up the sunshine in the delightful, terraced garden. Head out from the stone property, which sleeps up to three guests, to explore the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - walk along the striking Jurassic Coast and spend summer days on the beach. Bring one four-legged friend with you if you wish.

Take two steps up into this pretty terraced home to find yourself in the hall; then another step up to feel the warm embrace of the character-filled lounge. Stoke the wood burner in the stone inglenook fireplace and watch a film on the Smart TV, before preparing something tasty with fresh produce from the market in Bridport in your kitchen at the back of the cottage - dining together at the table. Find your family bathroom and WC also at ground-floor level. Due to the age of the property, there are changes in level peppered throughout. As night falls, climb the winding cottage-style staircase up to your two charming bedrooms with their vaulted ceilings and low beams. On warm days, carry breakfast, lunch or dinner up the steps to the seating area at the top of the garden or simply relax with a cup of tea after a long country walk.

Head just over 3.5 miles to spectacular West Bay with its two beautiful beaches: picnic on East Beach against the backdrop of the sandstone cliffs or paddle in the quieter cove of West Beach. Walk along the harbour's Jurassic Pier with an ice cream or pull on your hiking boots and climb the coast path to the top of the cliffs. Visit bustling Bridport for an array of independent shops, restaurants and different markets selling everything from delicious local produce to antiques.

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

Lovely quirky cottage, very cosy and very quiet and peaceful location within easy reach of the coast.

Reviewed by Mary 27th December 2019

Lovely cottage with welcoming and thoughtful touches in small quiet village but close and easy access to coast and towns.

Reviewed by David 19th November 2019

This is a lovely little cottage, conveniently close to Bridport but still rural enough to feel like a real break. The house has a lot of character and is perfect for a cosy getaway.

Reviewed by John 27th September 2019

A very cosy, quirky cottage in an excellent location. The main bedroom is perhaps a little small and therefore lacking in clothes hanging space but use of the second bedroom overcomes this. The living area is comfortable with plenty of space for 2 people. The owners are easily contactable and extremely helpful.

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.
