Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Dorset - Hell Barn cottages

Holiday cottage in Dorset near the sea

This is a small, quiet holiday cottage complex, on the outskirts of the village of Chideock, set in a hollow by Winniford Stream and surrounded by rolling farmland. A mile inland off the main road, it is quiet and peaceful but also a convenient spot from which to explore the Jurassic Coast, including the nearby town of Lyme Regis and other places of interest in Dorset, Devon and Somerset. The nearest beach is two miles away, with several other beaches within easy reach by car. There are many miles of delightful footpaths to explore, including the fine coastal path with its breathtaking views. The spacious and comfortable cottages are located in middle of countryside. There is a large, attractive garden, which is great for relaxing or playing in at any time of day. The garden also houses a games room, which is equipped for all ages from toddler to adult. Japanese food is our speciality. Video is available on www.youtube.com / type in 'hellbarncottages' temporarily.

Great accommodation and great hosts. We will definitely return as the place was clean, tidy and absolutely beautiful. We also tried the Japanese food that was amazing. We strongly recommend this place.

Excellent self-catering in great location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent. We booked the studio for one week, and really enjoyed it. Plus points are....quiet rural location, comfortable beds and seats, well supplied kitchen, modern design, good bathroom, very large garden with stream and lots of grass, walk straight out into great countryside, near Bridport and Lyme, excellent hosts. Minus points are....nothing worth mentioning. Make sure you check out the village museum in the Catholic church.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We visited in October 2014 for term break as a family of 5; kids are 4 and 9 years old and a dog who was with us because his owners went overseas so we took care of him for the week. The cottage, at the end of a cul-de-sac, provides plenty of parking for cars. The cottage grounds are gated and perfectly safe for both kids and dogs. They have a lovely grassy separate area for the kids to run around and a well-equipped hall with table tennis and various indoor sport activities. The beach is very close - we used both bikes (10 minutes) and car to get there. The welcome was warm but not pushy with milk, bread and butter waiting. The cottages have fully equipped kitchen including fridge, washing machine with drier, pot and pans, plates, knives, chopping boards, cups and glasses, utensils etc. Everything we found was clean and tidy. Even though the place is dog friendly there were no traces of any untoward smell or pet hair inside. Really, everything was perfect, we will definitely be returning shortly! Thank you!

Foxglove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Hell Barn Cottages, the accommodation was roomy and very well equipped. The hosts were friendly and helpful and it was lovely to find holiday accommodation where our dog was also welcome.

A lovely part of the country - we are keen walkers and found some lovely villages and hamlets without the need of the car for most of the week - fabulous weather was a bonus.

We hope to return.

We stayed at Hell Barn Cottages at the beginning of September. The Studio Cottage was small but perfectly formed it met our needs wonderfully. The shared garden is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. The welcome we received from Shige & Diana was amazing. We tried the home cooked Japanese meal and I have to say I’ve never had anything even close in a restaurant, it was delicious. We wanted a relaxing week and to explore the Jurassic Coast and this was the perfect place. I definitely think we will be heading back to Hell Barn Cottages in the future.

Our cottages are situated in the middle of peaceful, rolling countryside, but are only a mile off the main road. There is a good choice of beaches and miles of coastal walks to explore. The local villages have traditional pubs with good food. The nearby town of Bridport has a lively market twice a week and plenty of shops and cafe/restaurants. There are many interesting places to visit: including Abbotsbury, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Weymouth and Dorchester. Alternatively you can just relax in our attractive garden and enjoy the peace and quiet.
