Full of character, this 16th century Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoys an idyllic location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, equidistant to Weymouth and Lyme Regis – perfect for making the most of countryside and coast.

Located on a quiet lane, off the High Street in the heart of the coastal village of Burton Bradstock. You will find two pubs, two shops and sandy Hive Beach less than half a mile walk from the cottage. Beyond the village, Weymouth sits 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 feature 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. 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 spacious 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 comfortable 5ft double bed with reduced head height in the eaves.

To the rear of the cottage, a low doorway leads out to a gently sloping garden complete with flower beds, fruit trees and a lovely little vegetable garden. 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.

Please note, there is a little-used right of way through the garden to the adjoining cottage.
