Escape to a peaceful pocket of Dorset with this charming home-from-home that’s full of original features.

Situated in a row of cottages on a dead-end lane, this property is perfect for those in search of some peace and quiet. At the end of the road, a bridleway leads to the privately-owned pebble and shingle beach at Seatown, popular among fossil collectors, fishermen and families alike. Chideock itself is a small, hilly village with two popular pubs and surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A 4-mile drive east will bring you to West Bay, a bustling seaside resort also known as the golden gateway to the Jurassic Coast.

Leave coats, bags and boots in the useful entrance hall and continue through to the elegant dining room. With exposed beams, antique furniture and comfortable seating, this is a homely room for relaxing all day long. Curl up with a good book on the window seat or hunker down beside the roaring wood burner while you watch your favourite programme on the TV. Beyond, a traditional farmhouse-style kitchen features stone flooring, a Belfast sink, bespoke units and oak worktops and a door opening onto the garden. The kitchen/diner is equipped with everything you should need for preparing tasty family meals, including an oven, fridge with ice compartment and dishwasher. Upstairs are two well-presented bedrooms, one double with wrought-iron bed, original floorboards and TV and one twin with an original cottage window and reduced height in the eaves. The bedrooms share a bathroom with overhead shower.

Outside, a wonderful cottage garden has been beautifully planted with colourful shrubs, trees and flowers. There is a garden table and chairs for enjoying al fresco meals and drinks in the summer months. There is off-road parking for one car.

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

Trimm cottage is a beautiful property, full of charm and character. It is very well equipped, with everything you could need for a weeks stay. The location is perfect for visiting the nearby towns of Bridport and Lyme Regis or for simply taking in one of the many walks straight from the door. A walk to the Anchor Inn at Seatown is an absolute must!

Beautiful, cosy cottage in a wonderful location. The cottage had everything we needed and we particularly enjoyed all the games, books and DVDs. Could've stayed much longer.

Reviewed by Dr J Fox 10th October 2018

The cottage was very comfortable and superbly located, being only a few minutes walk to the beach and the SW Coastal Path. Sitting in the Anchor garden with a drink watching the sun set and anglers pulling in their dinner was magical!

This was the second visit to Trimm Cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again. The cottage is well equipped and very convenient for pubs and walks to the coast.

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.

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.
