This charming property, located in the small hamlet of Waytown in Bridport, is a faithfully restored and extended semi-detached cottage. The location offers easy access to the dramatic Jurassic Coast.

This delightful semi-detached period cottage sits in a peaceful rural hamlet just 5 miles from the Dorset coastline. Inside, a charming exposed-brick inglenook fireplace with an open fire is a welcome addition for those chilly winter’s evenings while the enclosed games lawn offers plenty of space for both children and dogs to burn off steam all year round. Surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside, wonderful walks are best topped off with a hearty meal at the local pub, just 20 metres from the front door.

At the heart of this cottage is the fantastic exposed-brick fireplace, which creates a charming focal point in the homely lounge. After a long day outside, warm up beside the roaring fire or escape to the second lounge upstairs for some extra peace and quiet. In the summer months, while away long hazy afternoons in the enclosed garden on the other side of the parking area, which is perfect for BBQs and games on the lawn.

We love this cottage, we have been here 5 times and find it just perfect. Two living rooms which is great too, plus two bathrooms.

Reviewed by Anna 14th September 2019

Lovely location, especially for walking, but cottage not suitable for anyone with impaired mobility, as 1st flight of stairs very steep and 2nd flight of stairs excessively steep. Right of way across front and side of property by neighbours a little intrusive. Enclosed garden in shade most of the time, would be better and more convenient if front gRead morearden could be fenced off and used instead. Hide

The cottage had every thing that we needed for our short stay. Parking was not a problem. The pub could not have been closer as well! We had a lovely short break.

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.
