“Gorgeous cottage in friendly village”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed with our children the first week of August. The cottage is exactly how you would expect in a small village. Full of charm with stylish decor. Garden is beautiful, lovely for outdoor dining on the BBQ. The local pub is very friendly, Stuart met the vicar and locals at thier weekly coffee morning and was made to feel very welcome! The location is great for beaches and picturesque harbours, West Bay, Bridport, Lyme Regis, charmouth we even got to Sidmouth donkey sanctuary and great retail therapy at Exeter on our ONLY rainy day. Would thoroughly recommend the cottage for couples wanting to escape the fast life, families with young children and keen walkers/cyclists as a great base. Have already recommended to friends. Ps. Bottle of prosecco and biscuits on arrival is a lovely touch thank you x

“A lovely cottage and a great base for exploring Dorset”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Dormouse cottage is situated a few minutes drive from Bridport in a quiet village called Loders. We stayed at the end of July and had an enjoyable week exploring Dorset. We found the cottage to be very homely and well equipped, with a comfortable living room with a log burner which we used on a couple of chilly evenings. The cottage had a nice modern bathroom with a powerful shower and comfortable bedrooms. The garden was also a bonus as it was south facing and we ate our evening meals outside in the sun. There is a country pub a few minutes walk which has nice ales and food, supermarkets and shops are a short drive away. We found the cottage to be ideally situated with an easy drive to Lyme Regis, Charmouth, West Bay, and Weymouth. We would recommend this cottage and look forward to returning in the future

“Dormouse Cottage - excellent homely cottage...... just didn't want to leave”

person found this review helpful

I had a last minute break at this cottage at the end of May and just didn't want to leave. This gorgeous homely and comfortable cottage has been refurbished by the current owners to an excellent standard and is a real home from home. The cottage is situated in a pretty village with excellent views across fields and hills and is just a couple of miles from Bridport and West Bay. The local pub (Loders Arms) is less than a hundred yards away and is friendly and serves lovely food which is reasonably priced. One evening was a little chilly outside and so we used the log burner which made the cottage so warm and cosy. There are lots of walks around the village too. I would definitely recommend this cottage and can't wait to revisit.
