Holiday Rental House
Situated in beautiful Dorset countryside in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a rare opportunity to stay in a very comfortable cottage in an unspoilt rural valley, rich in wildlife, birds and wild flowers. It has its own garden and lies within the grounds of the owner's small farm. There are numerous interesting walks straight from the front door and 2 good pubs within a mile and a half. Bridport with its twice weekly markets, shops, restaurants and a leisure centre is 5 miles away. West Bay (a bustling harbour where Broadchurch was filmed), the Jurassic Coast and there are several interesting beaches and coastal paths close by. The cottage which is attractively furnished and well equipped has a beamed living room with a wood-burning stove and a French window onto the garden...Situated in beautiful Dorset countryside in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a rare opportunity to stay in a very comfortable cottage in an unspoilt rural valley, rich in wildlife, birds and wild flowers.

Comfortable cottage. Very peaceful location. Very handy for Westbay beach which was lovely. You quickly get used to the other narrow lanes. Had a very pleasant few days.

About the neighbourhood
There are numerous pretty villages in the area, many of them with historic churches well worth visiting. The Abbey in Sherborne is exceptional. Dorset is known as 'Thomas Hardy country ' because his novels are built around Dorset life. The films of his book 'Far from the Madding Crowd' were made around this area. Fossil hunting is enjoyed by many along the beaches of the Jurassic Coast. Gastronomically speaking the area is full of good Restaurants, Pubs and cafes, for example Summer Lodge and the Acorn Inn in Evershot, the Riverside at West Bay, the Hive Beach Cafe at Burton Bradstock.
How to get there
Routes from Bridport, Crewkerne or Dorchester can be e-mailed.
