  • A lovely Grade II listed cottage in a picturesque countryside village
  • Just half a mile from Hive Beach with many walks nearby
  • Perfect for walking and cycling in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Jurassic Coast
Property code: DC148

Set in a charming village near the stunning Dorset coast, this Grade II listed fisherman’s stone cottage offers cosy and stylish accommodation for a couple or a family seeking an idyllic retreat.

This pretty thatched stone two-bedroom cottage is an ideal countryside retreat for three, with the beach just under a mile away. Situated in the quiet town of Burton Bradstock just 160 metres from the local pub, this cottage is perfect for a small family looking for a relaxing holiday away. A Grade II listed building, it retains many original features that add to its charm.

Enter the cottage straight into a cosy L-shaped living area, with a dining table and comfy sofas to sink into after a long day. Enjoy a good book on the wooden window seat among dark exposed beams, while being warmed by the wood burner, and feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A compact kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm, while the porch that leads to the back garden has space for boots and coats. Head up the stairs to a double bedroom with comforting decor and reduced height at the eaves – watch your head on the wood beams. A small single room has attractive furnishings that make this a welcoming room to retire to, and the shower room next door has beautiful tiles that add a little bit of indulgence to your stay. Outside, a small enclosed courtyard gets plenty of sun and is protected by stone walls and shrubs – ideal for an al fresco drink in the evenings.

Head down to Hive Beach for long stretches of sand, just under a mile away, and enjoy an ice cream or drink at the cafe. The South West Coast Path runs along here, so spend the day walking for miles if you’ve got the right shoes! Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens (6.5 miles) is also lovely for a stroll and has a rich history dating back to the 16th century.

Dirty bathroom and windows couldnt be opened and closed properly. Dangerous. Didnt get much sleep because the pump that supplies the toilette flush with water starts every few minutes - flush steadily loses water. (And we were told to save water . lol.) Way too expensive.

We loved our visit to this attractive little cottage. It is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. It is superbly set in the village. It is in walking distance of 2 good pubs and a friendly village shop. A short drive to the well-known Hive cafe and a chance to walk on the beach or over the hills. Bridport is nearby for a range of shops. West Bay, a Read moretraditional harbour. a mile or so away. Seine cottage is set in a great spot for a holiday. We were very happy staying there. Hide

This is a lovely cottage in a great location but a supposedly unwinding vacation was marred by arriving at an uncleaned cottage; beds unchanged, used towels on the bathroom floor. Parking is not an issue. Nice local pubs for food and drink. The 3 Horseshoes was my favourite. Local Post Office and convenience store nearby too. This is clearly a dog-Read moreloving village with many local walks on the doorstep. The coast is a short walk away too. Hide

Ideal for two adults. Cosy. Decor and furniture dated but ok. Heating works well. Close to church but clock chimes did not disturb us, i.e. not loud. Kitchen equipment appears new, clean, as was crockery, all matching. Did not use cooker, so cannot comment on that. Very dark at night, no street lights, need torch. Magnificent night sky - so look upRead more and see the stars! Would return. Hide

This was our third stay & won't be re booking as the issues are not being addressed. The emacerator toilet still has an odour &/or shower drain.

The cottage in itself is lovely, ideally situated for the beach and local pubs, with lovely walks around the village. However, it is in need of some TLC.

The cottage was not clean. In fact, in places it was filthy, and it had the feel of somewhere that was unloved and uncared for. Cobwebs and dust everywhere. The back yard was in dire need of a sweep and tidy up. The (usually) helpful information folder was all over the place. Tiny wine glasses; dirty mugs; delaminating teflon frying pan. The cottagRead moree was well below the standard I would expect, especially considering the price paid. Hide
