Set just outside the thriving town of Bridport this light, colourful and attractive detached 18th-century cottage makes a great base for a family seeking to explore the wonderful west coast of Dorset.

This is an ideal base for exploring the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The beautiful West Bay (1.5 miles) offers a glorious beach and breathtaking cliffs, with Golden Cap (5.5 miles) providing a stunning backdrop. You can pop into the bustling market town of Bridport (1.5 miles) which has a range of great shops, pubs and restaurants. The Dorset coast has numerous wonderful coastal towns and villages, many with delightful beaches, including Eype (2.5 miles), Burton Bradstock (3 miles), Seatown (4.5 miles), Charmouth (8 miles), and Chesil Beach (15 5 miles). Heading inland you could visit landmarks including Forde Abbey (14.5 miles), Eggardon Hill (6.5 miles), Lewesdon Hill (7 miles) and Lambert’s and Coney’s Castle (8.5 miles).

Entering this beautifully converted former coach house via the porch, you can leave coats and boots in the hall and then step into the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and a TV/DVD. Between the lounge and kitchen is a charming dining area, perfect for sharing a family meal. Heading over to the kitchen you will find it fully equipped with a range oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and dryer. A step leads down into the second lounge which also has a TV and comfortable seating. Exploring the ground floor further you can sit back in the charming conservatory which looks out onto the garden. There is also a ground-floor shower room with WC. Going upstairs you will find two cosy double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room with WC. There’s also a separate shower room complete with shower and WC.

Stepping outside, the garden is largely laid to lawn and features shrubs, trees and a patio with outdoor furniture and a BBQ. The garden backs onto the private parkland of the Rectory. Just 100 metres away is a village play-park with a climbing frame, slides and goalposts. Off-road parking is available for one car, with additional roadside parking nearby.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20 for up to 7 nights, £40 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20 for every week or part week thereafter.
