HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this spacious, warm and comfortable cottage. We love the location so near to the coastal path and many beautiful places yet so peaceful and calm with walks from the door and a sunny patio for sitting out and enjoying the beautiful views. Ash cottage is very well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We can not fault it and feel sure anyone would have a wonderful time here. We certainly did.

Well appointed property, very comfortable and wonderful position.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived following the heavy snow, and were impressed by the concern and care of the owner who rang to check we when we would be arriving, explaining where to locate keys required. We came away for complete escape and relaxation and the cottage is exactly what it says on the packet! So wonderful to be able to park up and the spend the week walking from the house, using an occasional bus. Would highly recommend Ash Cottage and will most certainly be returning.

Spacious and cosy Christmas retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Searching for a late Christmas cottage for a relative needing tranquility, came across Ash Cottage - still available and very reasonable – mm, looks a bit of a box in a row of boxes … and on a hill in winter .. ?

Not a bit of it! Driving up the track in the dark, the magic was palpable. Opened the door and marvelled at the spread of spacious rooms up and down three levels, the warmth and cosiness at the same time, seasonally decorated and welcome gifts from Isobel and co. How lovely!

Morning let in the light and delightful views from every room. The French doors throw the back open to nothing but hills and sky beyond! Summer evenings beckoned ...

December though the focus was indoors so we appreciated the comfort of everything - very well equipped and supplied throughout. Warm lighting and very decently furnished. Huge fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven/hob, every utensil possible. Spotlessly clean too. Massive main bedroom. Great second. Tonnes of storage space throughout. Teensy tip - no tumble dryer but huge huge towel rail in bathroom sufficed. Fab hot power shower over bath. Needn’t have packed the washing powder, the tealights, the tin foil, the sugar… all there.

We ventured out for brisk sea blasts, nipped into brilliant Bridport, took a drive east along the stunning coastal road on a sunny day to ancient Abbotsbury, and charming Little Bredy (keep it secret .. ) but mostly just relaxed in a real home from home. Thank you Isobel.

Comfortable and welcoming

  • 4 of 5

Thankyou to Isabel for providing a very comfortable cottage for us. Everything was supplied to make sure our stay was easy including a very nice bottle of wine. The location is perfect for the western end of Dorset especially Lyme Regis, a very nice town at the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Loved it. By the way, try The Anchor Inn at Burton Bradstock. The food is wonderful!

Dorset is an area of unspoilt charm, outstanding natural beauty, sleepy villages and bustling market towns and dramatic coastlines all waiting to be explored. The whole 25miles of West Dorset's magnificent coastline forms part of Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, designated by UNESCO for its outstanding geology. Along the beaches between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, fossils are being continuously found as the cliffs erode. You can join a guided fossil-hunting walk from the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre by Charmouth beach.

There is so much to do in this part of Dorset including Lyme Regis (made famous by the film The French Lieutenant’s Woman) which has a Jazz Festival (May), Lifeboat Week (July), and Carnival (August), Abbotsbury Swannery & Gardens, Athelhampton House & Gardens, and Monkey World just to mention a few! You can even take a day trip to Jersey or Guernsey from Weymouth!
