Location description from owner

The England region

This is a breathtaking coastline, most of which comprises the Jurassic Coast, and some of the country's finest rural countryside, a large part of which is officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you are feeling active, ramble along miles of footpaths, or make the most of the area's outstanding watersports facilities which the 2012 Olympic sailing athletes will use. If your interest is in heritage, the area offers numerous historic houses, gardens, castles and forts. Enjoy the lively seaside resorts and busy maritime harbours. Or, simply recharge your batteries and be inspired by an area of stunning countryside views, idyllic villages and market towns.

Chideock

Chideock is only a stone's throw from Bridport (and West Bay) to the east and Charmouth to the west, both of which are outstanding holiday destinations in their own right. Chideock has it's own holiday access to the Jurassic Coast via Seatown. This is the favoured parking place for holiday makers who wish to climb the famous Golden Cap, which is only 2 miles away. Seatown beach is also wll known for fossilling. The seating area outside the Anchor Inn at Seatown is a magical spot to watch the sunsets - on the beach (see phot gallery). Also famed for Thomas Hardy walking to the pub for a well earned pint.

Situated in one of the most picturesque valleys in this part of the county, and spelled as Chideock in the Doomsday Book, this peaceful view of the village street lined with well-built cob and sandstone cottages precedes the arrival of the motor vehicle, and the transformation of this thoroughfare into the busy A35.

There is plenty to do for everyone: golfing, walking, fishing, eating (celebrity chefs such as Mark Hix, Hugh Fearnley Whittinstall, and Matt Follas are all local). Bridport Leisure Centre is a 5 minute drive away as is the art and craft market town of Bridport (market days are Wednesdays and Saturdays). The Electric Palace (picture house and music venue) has recently re-opened and Bridport Arts Centre offers something for all tastes.

Reviewed 15 Feb 2017

We have just returned from a week in Stable Cottage and can highly recommend it for its comfort, warmth and accessibility to the coast. We were warmly welcomed by Carroll the owner who had thoughtfully supplied us with extras like chocolates,wine and flowers.A nice touch.After a brief explanation of the working of the property,we were left to unpack and despite the owner's proximity to the cottage,we never felt watched over the whole week. It is well kitted out with very comfortable,large beds,and a strong shower over the bath.A good seating area upstairs overlooked the stunning countryside . Should you require an extra bedroom for a third couple,there is a tack room attached though there is no internal door connecting but is literally a few steps away so wouldn't be a problem.I believe there is a small extra charge for this. The coast at Sea town is a pleasant 15 minute walk down a quiet country lane and there is a pub,The Anchor,overlooking the sea.It was very busy when we visited and booking for a meal is advisable. In the village are two other pubs.Both very friendly serving decent food.Be warned;the George does very large portion s!We didn't eat at the Clock but the menu looked good. A short drive away is Charmouth and Lyme Regis. We would be very happy to return there next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such comprehensive feedback Yvonne - we really appreciate it. We are thrilled you had a good time and that you managed to visit so many places (and pubs) on your visit. Thank you for booking Stable Cottage - we would be pleased to welcome you back. All the best, Carroll and Simon

Reviewed 12 Dec 2016

We really enjoyed the local area and there are some great places to visit. After previously holidaying in caravans and chalet's we thought we'd try somewhere a bit different. This location looked fantastic in the pictures and building itself is full of charm. However we found the grounds cramped, with the business on the doorstep. While the building had a damp smell which we struggled to mask, on leaving I checked under the beds for any left items. The bottom of both beds were covered in mold. Neither the beds nor the sofa upstairs were as comfortable as they looked and we were quite relieved to be leaving at the end of our stay.

Owner's reply: Dear Steve, Thank you for your comments which we are investigating and where appropriate we will action the changes required of the sofa and beds. Unfortunately we cannot do anything regarding outside space given we live and work on site - I will check our details though as I thought this was clear - we appreciate it doesn't suit everyone and particularly guests with young children staying for nearly two weeks. We will be sure to stress this in future listings to avoid others bring disappointed in the future. While there is little I can do regarding the mould and damp smells due to your stay being some five months ago, we will alert the cleaning company of this. Thank you again for your comments as it helps keep us informed of changes required and therefore to improve. Regards, Mr & Mrs Lloyd
