Brimming with character both inside and out, this historic cottage is a cosy home-from-home from which to explore the stunning Dorset countryside and coastline.

This quintessentially English 19th-century cottage in the older part of the village of Bradpole combines the tranquillity of the countryside with the convenience of being near a bustling town. It offers the perfect rural escape for families looking to relax and enjoy quality time together. Its central position in West Dorset allows guests to easily explore the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the countryside beyond from Lyme Regis to Weymouth, which is part of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This charming property effortlessly blends a clean, contemporary cottage-style with its original features to create a wonderful feel throughout. Downstairs, there is a cosy lounge with a wood burner, which is the perfect place to snuggle up on a cold evening. To the rear, is a delightful kitchen/diner that is very well-equipped allowing you to cater for everyone’s needs. The staircase leads to two light and airy bedrooms (one double and one twin) and a bright family bathroom. Outside, there is a small enclosed courtyard with seating for two, whilst across the small shared driveway/path at the back, you will find a larger enclosed garden with a lawn.

The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is only 1.5 miles away at West Bay seaside resort with its iconic sandstone cliffs towering above the beach. Travelling west, you will find Charmouth (9 miles), the popular fossil hunting beach where you can hire hammers and goggles to help find those priceless remains. Further west again is the seaside town of Lyme Regis, which has a range of independent shops and eateries as well as a family-friendly beach. Going east, the unique Chesil Beach is 18 miles away, which is only a few miles from the many attractions of seaside resort, Weymouth.

Good location to explore the area. We had a problem with the boiler but Katy and Clive were very accommodating and did their best to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Beautiful cottage, ideal location, spotlessly clean and the owners have equipped it with everything you could possibly need. A real home from home.

Very Peaceful setting

Reviewed by Mr M Filer 19th September 2018

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

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
