This spacious, thatched cottage in a quiet Dorset village blends traditional features with contemporary touches to create a unique retreat from which to explore both rural beauty and the unique coastline of West Dorset.

This thatched, stone cottage blends beautifully into its surroundings and nestles in the village of Loders, near the market town of Bridport. The village is surrounded by the best of West Dorset countryside for walking and cycling. Whilst the cottage is compact, the rooms are very spacious. The garden to the rear of the cottage is large and very pretty, and is perfect for dogs and children to play. The cottage neighbours the village school and the village pub is within 200 meters.

On entering the cottage you will be struck by the quirky, original features and eclectic mix of traditional furniture that gives this cottage an abundance of character. Just off the hallway is the spacious lounge with its exposed beams and stone fireplace. It has a cosy ambience which is complemented further by the open coal fire, making it the perfect place to settle down of an evening. Next to the lounge is the well-equipped kitchen/diner. Upstairs, there are two good-sized bedrooms: one double with a king-size bed and one triple with a single and a double bed. Also on the first floor is the refurbished bathroom which is contemporary in style with its bespoke built-in basin unit and shower over bath. Outside, there is a sheltered, undercover patio area with table and chairs, which is a great place to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining. From here, you can appreciate the large, enclosed, south-facing lawned garden arranged on 3 levels, with its mature trees and shrubs.

The village is only 2 miles to the A35 which runs between the county town of Dorchester and Bridport. To the south is the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, famous for fossil hunting; to the west is the popular seaside town of Lyme Regis (13 miles); and to the east is the unique Chesil Beach (18 miles) and the seaside town of Weymouth (21 miles).

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

Ideal location for peace and quiet. The cottage was well appointed and the owner, who lives three cottages away was extremely helpful, but not intrusive, in any way. Excellent pub, The Crown, at nearby Upper Loaders, just a short walk away and great food. Ideal location for good beaches, Abbotsbury, West Bay and Bridport and many more.

This cottage was just right for our needs. The living room was spacious and kitchen well-equipped. Bathroom also spacious and excellent plumbing & fittings. We sometimes had to park 100 metres away because of all the cars belonging to teachers at the school next door (we presume) but this was a minor irritation. A lovely village with perfect circulRead morear walk around it and easy access to lots of nearby beaches.The owner was very obliging providing us with kindling and coal ahead of the 1/10 date. Hide

We had an excellent holiday in this lovely cottage. We enjoyed the great view from the garden, and long walks with the dog through the Dorset countryside and along the beaches nearby. Loders is a quiet, picturesque village and we really enjoyed exploring the hills (and pubs) around it.

First class throughout. Only minor problem was weak / no mobil signal inside the cottage, possibly due to the thickness of the walls?

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.
