About the property

In the middle of BRIDPORT TOWN

This compact charming town cottage is tucked away in a quiet lane, in the heart of Bridport town. It is no more than a few minutes walk from bakers, butchers, greengrocers, restaurants, shops and pubs. There are street markets twice a week and car parks are close by. This period cottage is in the heart of Bridport which has a rich industrial heritage of net and ropemaking and only 1.5 miles from the beach at West Bay. It is furnished to an attractive and very comfortable standard and is light, bright and full of character. It is ideal to use as a relaxing 'hideaway' or a base for a walking or beach holiday as there are many places of interest along the famous 'Jurrassic coast' and Chesil Beach. Explore the beautiful dorset countryside and enjoy the good locally produced food.

See details in rental notes. This compact town cottage comprises: stable door to beamed kitchen/diner with oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer. On the ground floor an attractive wrought iron spiral staircase which is steep and narrow, so not ideal for those with mobility difficulties, opens out onto the first floor Bed/Sitting room. This double aspect, bright sunny room has a sitting area and a double bed, TV/DVD/CD. Off this is a large bathroom with w.c. washbasin, bath with shower over.Tall people may find the height of the showerhead a bit restrictive. A range of wardrobe and shelved cupboards and dressing table.

As this cottage is in the middle of town it has NO outside space. However,Bucky Doo Square is a short walk away with its cafe atmosphere. (Small cafes operate here selling many types of coffees and tempting cakes and savories).

Surrounding the square there is a Butchers,Wine bar with Wi-Fi,Pub,Greengrocers, Healthfood shop,Hardware shop and Bookshops. Bicycle hire is also available in West Road., Long stay car parking is a 5 minute walk away and cost £2.80 a day

Unusual and well appointed property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

An unusual 2 up and 1 down property that was well equipped and in a great location just 2 mins from the shops and town centre.

Access to upstairs was by a metal spiral staircase that was challenging and not for anyone with mobility issues or large suitcases. There is no parking at the property which is a pity but there is a public car park nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no doubts in rebooking.

lovely location with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely and has everything you need for a short stay. The only possible downside is the parking (no free parking nearby). However, I found i had no problem using the nearby long stay facility - though obviously this will be variable. The parking is the only reason i gave four stars rather than five. Very good.

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little place for a couple. It was clean and well kept, and very close to the centre of Bridport. My advice to anyone driving and planing to park in the public car park is not to arrive while the market is going on! At all other times we had no problems finding parking spaces.

Such a lovely cosy hideaway. We had a really great time.

  • 4 of 5

A really comfortable, character-filled property. The bed was comfortable, the property was really well equipped and located. There isn't any free parking but nearby car parks do the job. The town is lovely and the beach at nearby West Bay is beautiful too. For a much needed couple of nights away this was perfect and we would highly recommend it.
