A farmhouse full of character and intriguing history. Downstairs there are high ceilings and some impressive 16th century carved beams, as well as a Tudor fireplace upstairs, suggesting this was once part of a much grander building of high status. It has been recently renovated to provide a comfortable home, whilst retaining a farmyard feel. We keep our own hens and if they are laying you will be welcomed with some of their tasty eggs. It has the benefit of being right in the village, yet with lots of space and a short walk to the beach or stunning countryside. There are two pubs, a post office and store in the village.

Why Robert Browse chose Burton Bradstock
The owners have had a cottage in Burton Bradstock for the last 10 years. They bought Shadrack Dairy Farm in April 2011. It had been empty for over 12 years and became a labour of love to return it to its former glory and restore its place in the village.

Well maintained, spacious family property
Having enjoyed staying at ‘home from home’ Shadrack Dairy farm for family holidays over the years, we chose Shadrack to celebrate our 60th Wedding Anniversary with our family. The week was perfect from start to finish exceeding all expectations. The village location has two very good pubs, shops and PO, there is also a children’s park complete with outdoor table tennis facility with field and river walks or short drive to Hive Beach (NT car park) with a café and fishing from the beach if wished. A beautiful cliff hotel where cocktails on the terrace before dinner or afternoon tea is highly recommended. It’s also an excellent touring base as the coastal road runs along the outside of the village. So, something for all the family.
Mark and Robbie are the charming, welcoming owners of Shadrack, always on hand if needed but never intrusive. Staying at Shadrack in Burton Bradstock is an absolute delight, we are already looking forward to returning next year. Thank you, Mark and Robbie, for making this year an extra special occasion for all the family.
We stayed the last week in June, with various family members coming and going. and had brilliant weather.
Lovely farmhouse, full of character. It was great having sun-trap patio outside - and we enjoyed a BBQ there - but when that got too hot we were grateful for the lovely cool sitting room. Also the splendid double-aspect master bedroom always kept a good temperature. Cosy, characterful kitchen and dining room.
Wonderful being a stones throw from the PO/farm shop and two good pubs. Also great eateries near the glorious beach.
The friendly owners live next door and were always on hand to help where help was needed - but were never interfering.
Hope to return one day!

Charming farm house
Shadrack dairy farm is a charming and characterful building, making a memorable place for a holiday.
Mark and Robbie were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.
The short walk to the beach makes it an ideal location, and there are pleasant places to eat out nearby too.

Comfortable, period property in a great location
The property was very comfortable and spacious, even with 5 adults and 3 children. It's a really interesting older property which has been tastefully furnished to be in keeping with its age. The weather was quite cold when we were staying and my mum really appreciated the Aga (on all the time) which made the kitchen really cosy. Everything was provided in the house from dishwasher tablets to soap which was really helpful. Burton Bradstock is an attractive village and we were impressed how the friendly people were when we went to see the church at Easter. The location is great with Bridport just 10 mins away and the coast on your doorstep.
We'd definitely consider coming back and would certainly recommend this property.
