This quaint cottage nestled in the beautiful village of Eype is ideally located on the beach lane and has a public house located right on the doorstep.

Situated in the small village of Eype. this lovely semi-detached cottage is conveniently set back from the lane that leads down to the beach. The property backs onto the local pub but is not overlooked in any way. As it is so conveniently placed for the beach, it is a dog walker’s paradise. Take in some of the local coastal walks or let your four-legged friend frolic on the beach and take a dip in the water. The property is located only 2 miles from the town of Bridport where you can have a stroll around the harbour and witness the colourful fishing boats and daily work of the fishermen, or relax in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by.

Entrance to the accommodation is through the well-appointed kitchen/dining room in which you will notice a host of lovely features such as the solid oak breakfast bar and feature fireplace in the dining end of the room. There is a small step down into the dining room. On entering the hallway, there is a door leading to the garden and a cosy lounge with an open fire and a pretty window seat which overlooks the beautiful surroundings. The room has windows on two aspects so is very light and airy. In the upstairs of the property (reached via a stairgate), there are two double bedrooms which feature original wooden flooring to both; and the master bedroom also has its own en-suite shower bathroom and Victorian fireplace adding a period touch. The master bedroom has double aspect windows which, again, look out over the picturesque valley. The bathroom has a bath with power shower overhead, WC and sink.

The semi-detached cottage is accessed via a shared path and has a tranquil gravelled courtyard garden located to the front surrounded by flowers and shrubbery. The raised seating area at the end of the courtyard offers beautiful views of the valley; as well as these views being appreciated from the large rear unenclosed decked area.

Ten out of ten! A lovely old cottage - very tastefully and attractively decorated and furnished - very peaceful as tucked away from the road - and stunning views to the back especially. Beautifully placed for walks and sea - though narrow lane down to beach must be a bit challenging in the summer! (And there really is only parking for one car.) Read more We had a very happy time.

Lovely, cosy cottage. The furnishings give it a very welcoming feel and everything we needed was laid on. The open fire is a particularly nice touch. The decking area is an excellent addition and allowed us to fully appreciate the beautiful location. The cottage was excellently situated for easy access along the Devon and Dorset coasts. The one minRead moreor improvement could be the amount of water available to the bath, which the tank only part filled. However, this did not lessen our enjoyment at all. Hide

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.
