Situated at the edge of the quiet rural village of Askerswell, this 4-star accommodation is a well-equipped and incredibly relaxing retreat from the daily grind.

This property is one of four in a complex within a wonderfully renovated and converted Grade II-listed barn that has been transformed into four cottages. The original farmyard has been retained during the conversion and it provides you with unadulterated views of the countryside and Askerswell Down. With Bridport and the Jurassic Coast 4 and 5 miles away respectively, there is plenty to see and do here.

Entry to the cottage is via the traditional stable door that leads you directly into the welcoming and homely open plan dining room and sitting room that has exposed oak beams and feature stone work that reminds you that you are in a Grade II listed building. As well as the large Smart TV, FireStick and Bluetooth speaker system, there is also a four-seater dining table and two soft two-seater sofas. Crisp and fresh looking, the room is very bright and this is a theme that carries on throughout the kitchen. Although small, the kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of storage space, a toaster, microwave, cafetière, gas hob, electric oven, washing machine and fridge. With the kitchen to your back, there is steep staircase with a slight twist that takes you up to the first floor. On the first floor there is the double bedroom that would be perfect, small but comfortable, as a master bedroom and a twin single bedroom too.

On the outside of the property there is a sizeable garden with a well-maintained lawn, a Smart, if small summerhouse and plenty of room to relax on the sun loungers supplied.


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

The cottage is small but perfectly formed! The kitchen is very well equipped and the bedrooms are comfortable. The garden is nice and a good size, with Swingball and plenty of outdoor furniture.

This was the fourth time we have stayed at Threshers. It's a cosy, well kept and very comfortable cottage in the beautiful village of Askerswell. The owner, Peter, makes a point of checking in with his guests to ensure all is in good order, as it inevitably is. You won't regret staying here.

Reviewed by Mrs S Shean 19th September 2018

We couldn't fault the cottage. It had everything you could want and very clear instructions about appliances, waste collection etc. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

Reviewed by Mr Paul Bonnet 31st August 2018

It was in a beautiful condition and in a wonderful village.

Reviewed by Mrs A Gilbert 31st August 2018

Threshers is in excellent condition, and has all the facilities you need for an lovely stay. The owner and housekeeper both called to check we had everything we needed which was very thoughtful. We would definitely stay again!

Reviewed by Mr J Parker 31st August 2018

Everything was great. There is a problem with the WIFI there and it was not working which was not ideal but it did not spoil our holiday and the owner was very communicative & keen to help sort the problem (but couldn't!).

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.
