“the perfect place for family get togethers”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just back from a brilliant week at the Bothy. All 9 of us (3 generations) had an amazing time. David, Elaine, Ryan and Rosie made us truly welcome. The grandchildren loved the animals and the use of the slide and trampoline.
Every room beautifully decorated, all the kitchen utensils you could want, a bbq in the lovely private garden, lovely little village with shop, craft centre (serves the most gorgeous food) and a pub which was not the friendliest on a weekday evening.
Nothing to much trouble to make our stay great, even lending Daniel some superhero Dvd's, on top of the extensive range to be found in the cottage. Hope to visit again one day.

David and Elaine are superb hosts, always happy to help you out. Broadwindsor is a great location with a community shop and excellent road connections to Bridport, Beaminster and Lyme Regis. Become a member of the National Trust and visit lots of wonderful houses in Somerset and Dorset.

“Wonderful place to stay with Friends & Family, very restful.”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The Bothy exceeded expectations and a very restful, charming place to stay within walking distance of pub and local shop. I stayed with my 2 friends and one dog and it was like home from home. Beautifully converted with some lovely touches and spotlessly clean. The sitting room very comfortable, kitchen well equipped and all the bedrooms were very light & beds, pillows, linen of excellent quality. We all slept so well and the wonderfully arranged bedrooms gave plenty of privacy and no sharing of bathrooms! Within easy distance of Bridport (town) & Burton Bradstock (beach and Hive cafe). Only there for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. We will return sometime this year when we can sort out dates. Small point. Could do with extra lamps in the sitting room.
