Characterful riverside property, in a beautiful village setting and ideally placed for easy access to Dorchester and the Jurassic Coast. It’s the perfect spot for a relaxed family holiday.

This charming and unique detached cottage is set in a quiet village location alongside the river in Piddletrenthide, perfect for a peaceful retreat. Located in the beautiful Piddle Valley, many walking and cycling routes can be found leading from the door and take in the picturesque landscape that this area is renowned for. It couldn’t be easier to try out the friendly local pub, which can be found just down the road, or in minutes you can reach the county town of Dorchester, which has a great selection of restaurants, cinemas, pubs and shops. Why not take a trip to the coast and visit the sandy beach and historic harbour in Weymouth or go fossil hunting in Charmouth.

From the gravelled parking area next to the cottage, a short walk along the lane leads you to the front door, which opens into a spacious and welcoming hallway with dining area. The calming colours, character and charm of this traditional cottage is sure to make you feel right at home, with low ceilings and original beams to be admired throughout. Immediately to your left is a cosy snug with Smart TV. Heading across the hallway you will pass a separate WC before finding the stylish country kitchen. Overlooking the garden, this delightful room is an inviting space for the whole family to enjoy and is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. To the right of the hallway is a stunning lounge with a Smart TV and an abundance of character features, including a wood burner and exposed beams. Once back in the hallway, a set of winding stairs lead up to the landing on the first floor, where you will find a charming king-size bedroom, with beautiful en-suite bathroom where you can take a soak in the freestanding slipper bath, with shower and WC. Adjacent to here is a further double bedroom furnished with care and overlooking the river to the front of the property. Next is the bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC. Two steps lead you to a generous twin bedroom which overlooks the garden and next door is a single bedroom with an additional pull out single bed (available on request at time of booking), which completes this floor.

Heading outside from the kitchen you will firstly find an inviting terrace with table and chairs. Ideally positioned behind the cottage it’s the perfect space to enjoy a quiet meal, or perhaps drinks in the evening. Leading on from here is a large lawn with a summer house, sure to keep all the family entertained. The river meanders through the garden (care to be taken with children and pets), creating the perfect setting for tranquil and relaxed days. Heading back to the side of the property, there is off-road parking for four cars.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Lovely comfortable cottage, plenty of room and many nice walks from the cottage. Lots of places to visit in the area, it is likely we would like to stay there again.

We had a wonderful week of good weather with trips to Lulworth Cove and Weymouth. Dorchester with its Hardy connections is also a very interesting town. Apart from the lovely Bridge Cottage the highlight for us was the arrival of a Red Legged Partridge family in the garden. Mum and her 9 chicks provided us with constant amusement as well as a littlRead moree consternation regarding their survival. Hide

Beautiful thatched cottage with river Piddle running alongside. Fantastic garden with good lighting and lovely space for the dogs to run around. Cottage was very well equipped with high quality cookware, crockery and utensils and fine cotton linen on the beds. The owners have an eye for design as the cottage is beautifully furnished. The Poachers IRead morenn is a ten minute walk from the cottage with good food. Seven of us and 4 dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bridge Cottage. Hide
