The cottage is hidden away down a quiet lane in a peaceful location in the heart of the thriving market town of Bridport. The location is close to all amenities, shops, cafes, eating places, art deco Electric Palace and Bridport Arts Centre. Bucky Doo Square is a couple of minutes walk from the cottage, where musicians and bands perform as people visit the street markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, selling everything from bric-a-brac to street food.
Recently refurbished the stone cottage is light, cosy and comfortable. It is suitable for families and couples. After coming through the front door you enter a porch for coats and shoes and containing a cabinet with cottage and tourist information and games for the use of guests.
The living room/diner contains a wood burner, comfortable seating and a range of equipment you might expect. French doors lead to a sheltered stone walled courtyard which can accommodate one car and has a rear wrought iron gate for vehicular access. A table and chairs are situated in the courtyard for al fresco dining.
A small but well equipped kitchen leads off from the living room.
On the first floor of this 3 storey cottage there is a bathroom with a bath and shower. The large Master bedroom has a standard feature double bed. The second bedroom on this level has adult sized wooden bunk beds.
On the second floor is the beamed, characterful attic bedroom containing a standard double bed. Far reaching views across nearby hills and over town roof architecture can be had on the east and north side of this room.

There is always a lot going on in Bridport at any one time. As well as the twice weekly markets there is a monthly farmers' market, a monthly vintage market and a regular artisan market held in the arts centre. Bridport has a free museum which has a significant section informing you of the town's rope making industry and history. There are many festivals throughout the year including themes such as literary, film, rope, food/drink and the unique hat festival.
The beaches and harbour at West Bay ( of "Broadchurch" fame) is approximately 1.5 miles from the cottage. Either a few minutes drive or a lovely (45 minutes approx) walk through the town orchard and along the river Brit. In general the cottage is a good base for walkers and cyclists. Many varied day routes and destinations are possible along the coast or through beautiful countryside. You could easily spend a week or two and not use a car if you wanted to.
The surrounding area is largely unspoilt with several areas owned by the National Trust. The coast has World Heritage status and many literary connections including Thomas Hardy. Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Abbotsbury, Dorchester and Weymouth are all within easy reach. Activities including fossil hunting, fishing, sailing and golf are all possible. There are many places of interest to visit including a swannery, children's farms and beautiful gardens open to the public.
