Bills-House is a much loved 3 bed semi-detached home still used by the owners family for holidays. Although in a quiet location Bills-House benefits from all amenities with country walks right on the doorstep.
The varied shops of Bridport, the restaurants, the coffee-shops and the pubs are just a few minutes walk away, as are the entertainment venues of the Bridport Arts Centre and the quirky Electric Palace Cinema both featuring live entertainment nights of comedy, music, films and theatre.
Bridport Leisure Centre, outdoor tennis courts and skateboard park are close by.
We have selected Friday as the change-over day so guests can enjoy the vibrant Saturday Bridport street market. This is further enhanced by a Farmers Market held every 2nd Saturday of each month. Enjoy this hustle and bustle but the peace of the secluded walled garden awaits you back at Bills-House.

Dorset is most famous for the Jurassic coastal cliffs, the coastal path with its stunning views and the fossils for all to find. So important is the geology of Dorsets coast UNESCO has awarded it 'world heritage status' ranking it alongside The Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef.
The west Dorset countryside has the diverse towns of:
Dorchester with 18th century houses, broadwalks and cultural tradition alongside Prince Charles's Poundbury with its architecture mirroring the past with a modern perspective.
Beaminster tranquil with rural charm.
Lyme Regis with its narrow streets heading steeply to the ancient Cobb Harbour - featured in 'The French Lieutenant's Woman'
And then there's Bridport, a great place to browse and shop for local produce as TV personality Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall demonstrated in his popular 'Return to River Cottage' series.
Dorset has something for everyone, wide open spaces, rolling hills and spectacular scenery for the artist, walker and cyclist, and for the golfer there are numerous superb golf courses.
From West Bay Harbour there are opportunities to go sea fishing from both boat and the beach.
A little more on Bridport town.
Bridport is a friendly, vibrant market town and once had an important rope-making industry being famous for producing 'the hangman's rope'.
Bridport is just over a mile from the small busy picturesque harbour at West Bay with its fishing boats, harbourside pubs and restaurants and where the Jurassic cliffs reduce to sea level for the beach lover.
For the experienced walker, cyclist and golfer your holiday is probably already mapped out and we hope you enjoy your stay. But for those who are on holiday to potter about, here are some ideas on how to gently while away your days relaxing and de-stressing from the daily grind.
If you don't want to use the car:
Take in a saturday or wednesday market
Relax in ' Buckydoo Square' [don't ask], take a coffee and people watch
Walk the footpaths of the River Asker, divert onto the disused railway line and walk to the sea, you end up on the beach. Alternatively walk the footpaths across fields to the harbour, both walks take approx. 35/45 mins.
Palmers Brewery have guided tours [booking required].
Slightly further afield:
Fossil hunt at Charmouth.
Try Hive beach at Burton Bradstock renowned for its beach cafe
The bus service from Bridport will take you along the coast.
