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.

Comfortable small cottage in pleasant village, quite dark inside. Good range of books and games. Wifi very unreliable. Take care with parking outside school holidays: church lane and all roads in the village are jam packed between 3 and 4 due to school run! Best to linger in Bridport until after 4.

Cosy and comfortable

Reviewed by Mr C Reeves 31st August 2018

Being an old cottage you can expect a certain amount of dust etc. I did vacum under the bed and found a old flip flop and a childs toy. Also we had problems with the shower it would not drain away. We contacted the caretaker on the day of our departure and left a message. We did not have a response? Chris Reeves

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.
