A gorgeous thatched cottage in Chideock surrounded by boundless bucolic beauty, this property provides the perfect base for groups of friends or families looking to share an unforgettable adventure.

This characterful chocolate-box cottage is the perfect property for those wishing to experience a charming countryside break, but with village amenities close by.

A pedestrian friendly lane opposite the cottage leads down to the sea via the children’s playground, and direct access to the footpath network on the cliffs.

Inside is an abundance of character features that you would expect from a thatched cottage, including exposed brickwork, ceiling beams and wooden floorboards. The sitting/dining room is split into two levels and is the perfect place to come together after a day of exploring. A beamed fireplace houses the wood burner and is an ideal spot to read or to play games. There is a fully equipped small kitchen complete with a range cooker for rustling up delicious meals, and a tranquil sunroom is an ideal place to sit with your morning coffee, with access via a stable door into the garden. A shower room is handy for freshening up after a day by the coast. Upstairs there are three bedrooms: two doubles with exposed beams and excellent views of the local area, and a bunk room. You can soak in the roll-top bath in the upstairs bathroom and relax after a day’s adventures. Outside, the rear garden incorporates a BBQ and terrace where you can dine alfresco and enjoy the sea air. A bench further up the garden affords stunning views of the surrounding hills. Private parking is available for two cars on the street opposite the cottage.

When you want to explore the local area, you can visit the working fishing harbour at West Bay (4.5 miles) or the quirky town of Bridport (3 miles). You can relax on the beach at West Bay or visit one of the resort’s charming cafes, while Bridport is home to a twice weekly market. Pick up some fresh local produce for your dinner or find a unique piece to remind you of this wonderful area.

This cottage is ideal, it is close to the beach and well within walking distance for the two pubs in the village. The cottage itself is very clean and well equipped, there is off road parking for two cars and it has a large rear garden. We were very pleased and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Reviewed by Hannah 29th December 2019

Its a great cottage to go to with kids and a dog as its comfortable and cosy without being fussy. Nice spaces, the breakfast room is a nice place to relax in the morning. The shower could do with updating and it would also be useful to have a shower attachment on the bath upstairs. The WiFi was patchy but none of this mattered. We had a lovely stayRead more in a warm and comfortable coat the which is in a great location. Hide

Beautiful period cottage Superbly equipped Wonderful location for the beach and local amenities

Reviewed by Angela 25th October 2019

A tight fit for 6 people but good enough for three of us for two nights. However a good kitchen, comfy beds and nice pillows, the cottage heats up quickly and the location and off street parking are handy. Excellent communication from the cottage manager.

Reviewed by S 7th June 2019

The cottage is very cosy and well situated for the beach, long walks and the local pubs. The garden is lovely in the sunshine - we made good use of the BarBQ. The cottage is well equipped and spacious enough for 2 couples and daisy dog :-) We would recommend to friends and family if they were looking to visit this area.

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.

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.
