This charming Grade II-listed stone cottage, with a magnificent backdrop of Colmers Hill, is perfect for a small family or group of friends looking to explore the Dorset coast and countryside.

Situated on a no-through lane within a terrace of similar properties, this character cottage is in a peaceful location yet close to many of Dorset’s most popular sites. It benefits from a local pub and shop within 500 metres, while the popular resort of West Bay – the setting for TV’s Broadchurch – is just over 3.5 miles away. The quirky and artistic market town of Bridport is only 2 miles away and is a great destination for a leisurely wander around its interesting streets. Or head to Charmouth, 7 miles away, which is known for its fossil-hunting opportunities.

Climb the steps, past creeping cottage flowers, up to the charming thatched porch and step into the open-plan sitting/dining room – a lovely, light room with neutral decor and an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique styling. Sink into one of the comfortable sofas and settle down to watch something good on the TV. When you’re feeling hungry, rustle up something to eat in the self-contained kitchen which is equipped with an electric oven and hob, a microwave, a toaster, a kettle, a dishwasher and a fridge with an ice compartment. There’s plenty of room to dine round the farmhouse-style table back in the sitting room. Climb the stairs up to the first-floor landing where you’ll discover the property’s two bedrooms – one king-size and one double – both decorated in soothing tones for a peaceful night’s sleep. They share a stylish bathroom with a shower over the bath.

At the rear of the cottage, you’ll find a delightful south-facing enclosed courtyard garden which is the perfect spot for a morning coffee or an al fresco dinner. There are herbs, shrubs and flowers to admire, as well as the view towards Colmers Hill. Parking is available on the no through lane outside the cottage.

Despite the weather we had a great time staying at the cottage. It is a perfect base for exploring the area and had everything we needed. It's a short walk to the dog friendly pub and there are plenty of walks on the doorstep. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

During my first visit in April 2022 I knew a return would be on the cards as it's such a beautifully presented cottage in a lovely location. A glorious week, blue skies and spoilt for choice of places to visit/local walks. Further afield we can recommend a day trip to Sidmouth plus Athelhampton House and Gardens. Symondsbury Estate provides some grRead moreeat 'retail therapy' on the doorstep. And The Ilchester Arms offers small portions of their mains allowing room for a home made dessert!! Hide

The cottage was delightfully decorated, warm & cosy, & well equipped. The welcome goodies left for us by the owners, Graham & Antony, were lovely & much appreciated. Parking down the lane was not an issue. The location was great to get to Charmouth, West Bay & Bridport, & also convenient to venture further by car e.g. Haynes Car Museum & ChristchurRead morech.
