These two stone cottages stand quietly by a bridge on the edge of the small village of Powerstock, just 5 miles from the coast at West Bay. The cottages nestle at the foot of the ancient Eggardon Hill Fort and offer a very comfortable base from which to explore the deep valleys and hills of this unspoilt part of south west Dorset, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 4 miles to the north east of Bridport . From the side of the garden there is immediate access onto a footpath, taking visitors across the owners' farmland, grazed by their beef and dairy cattle, as part of a beautiful five mile circular walk.

Completely refurbished by their owner with new, well-equipped fitted kitchens and bathrooms, Bridge Cottage and Spring Cottage are ideal for a couple or a small family.

Bridge and Spring Cottage can also be booked jointly with dining for 6 to 8 in either cottage's living area.
