Get away from it all in beautiful West Dorset and have a taste of the Good Life! Springfield House Annex offers a luxurious hideaway where you can enjoy absolute peace and quiet either outside in the large, enclosed garden or warming your toes indoors by the woodburner. On the smallholding there are, at different times of the year, pigs, sheep, and turkeys, and always hens and bees! Your Welcome Pack, which will provide you with all you need for your first breakfast, will include the fruits of the land with the lowest air miles ever. There's a lovely pub, The Hare and Hounds, which features in the 2014 Camra Good Pub Guide, just a short walk down the lane if you don't fancy cooking.

Couples and families will all find something to delight them. The Annex consists of a large open plan lounge with a well equipped kitchen, and double doors out to a sunny private patio. Here you can barbecue and enjoy some outdoor living. In the kitchen you have a double oven, induction hob and dishwasher. The oak floor is warmed by under floor heating which extends into the luxurious bathroom with bath and shower. Upstairs there are two lovely bedrooms, one with twin beds and the other, overlooking a lake, with a king size bed. Both are made up with crisp fresh cotton bed linen, and fluffy towels are provided. The washing machine and freezer are nearby in utility room, shared with the owner. Our commitment to green living makes this not only a special place to stay but also a sustainable one, with hot water and electricity coming from the sun, which shines a lot here in Dorset!

The West Country region

If you're after clear air, sweeping cliff walks, breathtaking views and snug little towns brimming with restaurants and shops to explore, Dorset is for you!

Dorset is as multi-layered as the famous fossil flecked cliffs along its Jurassic Coast - a stunning stretch of 200 million-year-old shoreline that has been designated a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its outstanding geological make-up.

The charming countryside Dorset has to offer has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it's easy to see why - take some time to discover this beautiful county at your own pace.

There is more to Dorset than just fabulous scenery and magnificant coast - the history of this county is rich and vivid. How many areas do you know that can boast a huge naked chalk giant, England's first Natural World Heritage Site and the largest hillfort in Europe!!

All over Dorset, you'll uncover charming market towns and tiny tranquil villages. Each town has its own individuality, character and history to relate.

It is no wonder that the area has captivated film and TV makers from all over the world. Productions of all kinds have been filmed on location here, with Dorset's unspoilt countryside, dramatic coastline and spectacular historic houses and gardens being used as a backdrop to the action.

Bridport and West Bay has a starring role in Broadchurch, the hit TV series written and created by Chris Chibnall. The cliffs, the sea, and the beach are all key elements of the story. It shows so well what a beautiful area this is.


Set amongst the spectacular rolling Dorset hills, Bridport is a lively town with a friendly and vibrant character. Famous as a centre for local food producers, Bridport is proud of the number and variety of pubs, restaurants and cafes that serve excellent food. On Saturdays there is a brilliant market featuring everything from fruit and veg to crafts and antiques; there is also the 'vintage quarter' where you can browse to your heart's content. The arts are well provided for too; the Arts Centre and Electric Palace both have a widely varying programme. There are festivals galore - celebrating everything from books, food, beer and hats! Check out to find out exactly what's on, when.

A mile south of the town is West Bay, a bustling little harbour which becomes a popular tourist resort in the summer months. Visitors can do a spot of crabbing, take a fishing boat trip or simply sit on the harbour side and unwind to the soft lapping of the waves and tinkle of the boat masts.

The closest village, Netherbury, is one of Dorset's prettiest. In the Spring, snowdrops line the lanes, and you can eat out or enjoy local beer in the Hare and Hounds pub, or take a horse out for a ride from the nearby riding stables. Many beautiful walks can be enjoyed from the cottage.

"Welcoming, cosy, tastefully furnished, near to great places to visit"

I stayed here with my husband and teenage daughter. We found it comfortable, with plenty space inside and a nice terrace with a BBQ. It has been recently renovated and has all you could need. Wifi worked in certain spots (which our daughter found instantly). The bedrooms are warm and cosy, everything in the kitchen works as it should. Yvonne and family made us feel very welcome, and we would definitely return there.
