The West Country region
.West Dorset has beautiful countryside with picturesque villages and market towns providing good local produce. The pace of life here is very gentle and allows for time to relax and enjoy pleasant company in interesting surroundings. Walking up Golden Cap is a favourite for the energetic or just perusing the many local markets is less demanding. Self catering can be a joy where there are so many farmers markets and local providers of good food.
Being on the Jurassic Coast provides a wealth of fossil finds with museaums at Lyme Regis and Charmouth.
.Bridport has many useful shops and supermarkets as well as three butchers and three bakers shops. There are also greengrocers and a useful weekly market which also sells produce as well as Bric a brac and domestic items. Every second Saturday in the month there is a farmers market at the Arts Centre.
There are many pubs and restaurants which provide good food within a short walk of the heart of Bridport.

"Charming, comfy and convenient."
The Old stable was perfect, in the heart of Bridport a great market town with good pubs and close to the beach, but in a calm quiet street away from any noise. This old stable was very cute, small but… More

"Quaint place, well located, but beware the stairs!"
Ideally situated to explore the area. Central to town which is great. No parking near and public parking is challenging to say the least. Council no longer offer tourist parking permits. The accommoda… More

"The perfect cosy cottage for a relaxing holiday for 2"
This was the perfect cosy cottage for a relaxing holiday. It was the just the right size for the 2 of us. Although the weather was bad for most of our stay, we enjoyed staying in and enjoying the accomodation. The cottage was well stocked with supplies such as bread and milk, as well as shower gel and shampoo, extra touches that I would not normally expect from self catering accomodation, but which made it extra special. The location was excellent, as the cottage was in the heart of Bridport, so pubs, shops and restaurants were all within a few minutes walk. Bridport is also a great location for exploring nearby areas such as Lyme Regis or Weymouth, We loved it so much that we have already booked to go again later on this year! Very reasonably priced as well. I would, and have, confidently recommended the cottage to friends and family.
