Why Emma Blackburn chose Whitchurch Canonicorum

In the heart of the West Dorset countryside yet only minutes from the beaches of the Jurassic coastline and Heritage Coast footpaths, Befferlands Cottage combines the best of both. Located amid the rolling hills of the Marshwood Vale – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – there are views of open farmland and plenty of walks along lanes, woods and riverside literally from the front door and across both West Dorset and East Devon. You can walk from the front door of the cottage to the beach in around 30 minutes. In the nearby village of Whitchurch Canonicorum, St Candida’s Church is the only church in England, other than Westminster Abbey, that retains the original medieval shrine and relics of the saint to whom it is dedicated.

Enjoyable short break in barn conversion

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable short break in this barn conversion - beautifully done, very comfortable and well equipped. The friendly Owners live in farm house next door but the set up is such that neither property really encroaches on the other. Provisions of milk, eggs and home-made shortcake provided on arrival, plus a small vase of welcoming flowers. Only a short distance away from the A35 (but no traffic noise from that), so convenient for visiting the local towns of Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Bridport, and the coast is very accessible. We walked across fields to the nearest village of Whitchurch Canonicorum which has a pub, although can't report on it as we didn't visit. We mostly ate in, but there seems to be plenty of places for eating out a short drive away. Have already recommended to friends.

Charming

  • 4 of 5

Lovely stay at Befferlands Cottage. Nicely furnished and equipped with everything you require to make you feel at home. There weren't many detached properties available when I was searching in March; this was a gem to find.

The location is close to the beach and Lyme Regis via car. A very welcoming and friendly community.

Beautiful cottage and such a quiet but convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, well equipped and beautifully furnished. It was so comfortable and the owners Anna and Gerald made me feel so welcome. There were nice little touches too with fresh flowers and home made buiscuits on my arrival. It is conveniently placed for visiting local towns, sightseeing or visiting the beach and Jurassic coast. Overall it is a lovely place to stay.

Charmouth is a beautiful seaside village, world famous for fossil hunting and guided fossil hunts are available. West Bay (Bridport) is 7 miles away where both mackerel and crab fishing can be had along with rib and speedboat trips to and from Lyme Regis.

Charmouth offers a chemist, small supermarket, butcher, bakery, post office, General Stores, restaurants, hairdresser, gift and ice cream shops with a speciality fossil shop directly at the beach along with a coastal heritage centre. There are also two pubs.

Befferlands Cottage is well placed for two fantastic farm shops, to the west on the A35 to Bridport is Felicitys Farm Shops with a wide range of local products and to the east on the A35 to Honiton is Millers which offers fabulous fresh produce and is a veritable emporium of French provisions.

The attractive seaside resort of Lyme Regis is close by with its sandy beach, historic harbor and many shops and restaurants. River Cottage HQ is a very short drive away and offers amazing cookery courses or if you would rather not cook yourself visit the River Cottage Canteen in nearby Axminster!

Restaurants in the area include Mark Hix Oyster House in Lyme Regis; Watch House Café in West Bay, Brassica in Beaminster, River Cottage Canteen in Axminster and The Riverside in West Bay. Also worth mentioning are The Anchor in Seatown, Down House Farm in Higher Eype, Soulshine Café in Bridport, The Olive Tree in Bridport and the Stable Pizzeria in Bridport.
