Full of character, this 16th century Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoys an idyllic location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is in a great location to explore the region.

This charming cottage is located on a quiet lane in the heart of the coastal village of Burton Bradstock. You will find two pubs, a village shop and sandy Hive Beach which is less than half a mile walk from the cottage. Beyond the village, is the historic market town of Bridport which is within 3 miles. Or take a trip to Weymouth which sits further along the coast 17 miles away, where you can visit the oceanic exhibits of the Jurassic Skyline and the Victorian Nothe Fort harbour along with an abundance of charming seaside shops and eateries. Head just 12.5 miles in the opposite direction to visit the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and Monmouth Beach in the picture-perfect town of Lyme Regis. If countryside walks are more your thing, you are within easy reach of the East Devon AONB and the rolling Blackdown Hills.

Upon entry, you’ll step into the spacious and light-filled lounge/dining room offering bags of character and traditional cottage charm with its fireplace and colourful soft furnishings. Fire up the traditional wood burner and sink into the sofa for cosy evenings in front of the Smart TV or watch a DVD. A step up leads to the compact yet well-equipped kitchen offering everything you’ll need to cook up the catch of the day before sitting down in the snug dining area to enjoy it. A wet room complete with WC is also located on the ground floor. Please note, there is reduced height in the eaves of this room. When the day is done, make your way up the cottage-style winding staircase to discover a bright and airy bedroom boasting a king-size bed with reduced head height in the eaves.

To the rear of the cottage, a low doorway leads out to a gently sloping enclosed garden complete with flower beds, fruit trees. Linked by a set of small stone steps is a terraced area where you can start your morning with a coffee as you take in your peaceful surroundings or enjoy a spot of al fresco dining during the warmer months. Furthermore, you are within walking distance of the popular Hive Beach, so you can truly appreciate this wonderful location. The cottage offers roadside parking.

The location of cottage is good got exploring the coastal area. Not the ideal cottage for anyone who is particularly tall as ceilings as low. Ideal for a short break there is everything you would need with the added bonus of a great pub just a few doors down. Definitely only suitable for 2 people, the wet room makes the most of the available space Read morebut some larger towels would be appreciated. Hide

The cottage is in a good location for visiting the area and also well placed for eating out. The outdoor space at the rear of the property is lovely and is a great asset in sunny weather. The accommodation in general is clean and functional, although the lounge would benefit from a couple of comfy armchairs.

The cottage is well located in a lovely village. The bedroom is cosy and bright. Downstairs is well kitted out, the kitchen is small but we didn't do any cooking so didn't matter. The garden is a bonus, to be able to sit out was very nice. The only downside is the downstairs bathroom which is not nice at all.

The cottage is in the perfect location to explore the Jurassic coast with so much to do on the doorstep. The cottage itself is small, but has everything you need and is chocolate-box perfect.
