Set on the end of a pretty terrace of similar properties, this cottage is located on the edge of the pretty parish of Bradpole in West Dorset. With the famous West Bay just three miles away, this is a fantastic base from which to explore the Jurassic Coast. Majestic sandstone cliffs and fossil-rich beaches make up this stunning 95-mile stretch of coastline, perfect for long walks with the family. The coast is dotted with lively seaside towns and villages, including Lyme Regis, Seaton and Charmouth, home to independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Closer to home, the bustling market town of Bridport boasts a rich rope-making heritage and a vibrant arts and culture scene.

A stable door opens into this charming property’s entrance hall, where there is space to leave coats and boots before continuing through to the lounge. With a beamed ceiling, wooden flooring, cosy rug and wood burner set into a brick fireplace, this is a homely room for relaxing after a long day by the sea. Watch a range of programmes on the Smart TV with BT Sport, challenge family members to a game on the Wii or simply sit back and listen to your favourite music using the iPod dock. The kitchen/diner beyond is a sunny space for cooking and entertaining. In the summer, allow light and air to stream through the patio door as you prepare delicious family meals in the traditional kitchen area before dining at the circular table nearby. Upstairs are two delightful bedrooms, one double with feature Victorian fireplace and one twin with original tongue-and-groove wall. Both bedrooms have been finished in fresh, light decor and share a bathroom with overhead shower.

Step outside from the kitchen to find a charming courtyard garden, perfect for enjoying a cup of morning coffee or glass of wine in the evenings.

Would have rated as very good if that was a choice. A little short of excellent. In a good position for visiting local tourist sites and very clean and comfortable. Only issues we had was that its on a corner of a busy road and front door very near to the road. So we had to be very careful with the dog when leaving the property. The lounge could alRead moreso benefit from a coffee table. Hide

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.
