This quaint stone-walled period cottage with original features, is set in stunning Bothenhampton and combines old-fashioned charm with contemporary style.

Set on a raised pavement above the village lane, this terraced property simply oozes charm. The pretty little village of Bothenhampton provides an excellent setting, benefitting from local amenities including a shop and a local pub, as well as lots of rustic charm. The property is located only a mile from the beautiful coast at West Bay where you can peruse the working harbour, have a drink in one of the many cafes, or take a boat tour to learn more about the heritage coastline.

The cottage is entered up two steps into a hall with a beautiful flagstone floor. The open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room is a warm and inviting space which encourages family life and social dining. All mod cons are present in the kitchen, with just a hint of the age of the property coming from the oak and flagstone floors. Also on this floor is a utility room with a door leading to the garden and, up one step, a bathroom with shower. Upstairs, on the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, one boasting a Victorian fireplace and TV, and, up one step, a family bathroom. On the second floor, via a spiral staircase with open tread, a single bedroom with double-aspect windows makes the very most of the beautiful views. There is reduced ceiling height in this room as it is located in the eaves of the house.

The property has a rear flagstone courtyard which is planted with scented honeysuckle and colourful ferns, and from here there are 12 steps up to the charming sloping garden with its beautiful flower beds containing a rainbow of flowers to shrubbery and trees. The upper terrace has the best views of all of the property over the rooftops to the countryside, and for those who love to eat alfresco, there is a charcoal BBQ available for use at the property.

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

the most comprehensively equipped cottage we have stayed in (& we've stayed in many) It was warm, welcoming (with a Christmas tree all set up!) and really clean throughout.

Well thought out and planned cottage, good location in terms of amenities and could find no fault whatsoever.

Sunnyside is a delightful cottage and has everything you could possibly want and more. A real home from home which is both comfortable and welcoming. A great deal of love and attention to detail has been invested into creating this lovely cottage and garden.

A pretty cottage in a lovely, quiet and rural location but within easy walking distance of Bridport. The furniture was all very comfortable (including the beds!) and the kitchen very well equipped with good quality utensils.

A beautiful little cottage in the quiet location of Main Street, Bothenhampton. Easy parking and a local supermarket only minutes away. The cottage is equipped with everything you need. Two bathrooms, two good sized double bedrooms and a single attic bedroom, kitchen/diner/lounge (which was a good size for 4 adults), a utility room and a beautifRead moreul idyllic garden. Free WIFI is also available. The key instructions were really easy which meant we could arrive at the property in our own time and not have to rush to get to an office by closing time. There was also plenty of information available regarding the cottage along with information about the local area. There were also games, books, a DVD player with DVDs and CDs to keep everyone entertained. Hide

We arrived to a spotlessly clean & tidy cottage. It had everything we could have possibly needed for our stay.

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
