Set just outside the thriving town of Bridport this light, colourful and attractive detached 18th-century cottage makes a great base for a family seeking to explore the wonderful west coast of Dorset.

This is an ideal base for exploring the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The beautiful West Bay (1.5 miles) offers a glorious beach and breathtaking cliffs, with Golden Cap (5.5 miles) providing a stunning backdrop. You can pop into the bustling market town of Bridport (1.5 miles) which has a range of great shops, pubs and restaurants. The Dorset coast has numerous wonderful coastal towns and villages, many with delightful beaches, including Eype (2.5 miles), Burton Bradstock (3 miles), Seatown (4.5 miles), Charmouth (8 miles), and Chesil Beach (15 5 miles). Heading inland you could visit landmarks including Forde Abbey (14.5 miles), Eggardon Hill (6.5 miles), Lewesdon Hill (7 miles) and Lambert’s and Coney’s Castle (8.5 miles).

Entering this beautifully converted former coach house via the porch, you can leave coats and boots in the hall and then step into the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and a TV/DVD. Between the lounge and kitchen is a charming dining area, perfect for sharing a family meal. Heading over to the kitchen you will find it fully equipped with a range oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and dryer. A step leads down into the second lounge which also has a TV and comfortable seating. Exploring the ground floor further you can sit back in the charming conservatory which looks out onto the garden. There is also a ground-floor shower room with WC. Going upstairs you will find two cosy double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room with WC. There’s also a separate shower room complete with shower and WC.

Stepping outside, the garden is largely laid to lawn and features shrubs, trees and a patio with outdoor furniture and a BBQ. The garden backs onto the private parkland of the Rectory. Just 100 metres away is a village play-park with a climbing frame, slides and goalposts. Off-road parking is available for one car, with additional roadside parking nearby.

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.
