Bridport with its twice weekly markets, shops, restaurants and a leisure centre is 5 miles away. West Bay (a bustling harbour where Broadchurch was filmed), the Jurassic Coast and there are several interesting beaches and coastal paths close by.

The cottage which is attractively furnished and well equipped has a beamed living room with a wood-burning stove and a French window onto the garden. A modern fitted kitchen, double bedroom, twin bedroom, bath, lavatory and over-bath shower. The wood-burning stove (logs included in rent) heats radiators if required. There are electric Night Storage and convector heaters. Electricity will be included in the rent except between October and early April when amounts over £15 will be charged according to meter reading. Linen is included.

“Perfect English country cottage”

Reviewed 16 May 2019

A wonderful stay in a picturesque warm and cosy cottage, with wonderful hosts, Jenny and Richard. Sitting in the flower filled and sunny garden for our morning breakfasts and listening to the bubbling brook, having our evening drink in the comfortable lounge room in the evenings, or sleeping well on the comfortable beds, it is all just right for a stay in Dorset.

Owner's reply: Many thanks It was a pleasure to meet you both and we hope you return to Australia keeping happy memories of your stay in the peaceful Dorset countryside. All the best' Richard and Jenny
