  • "A delightful homely cottage with lots of interesting touches."

    Well equipped and very comfortable. Friendly neighbours. The views of West Bay were an added bonus for me. I would certainly stay here again if I was visiting Bridport again.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Bedford Terrace, it really is a cosy home from home."

    Dorset threw all weathers at us over our week in Bridport so we enjoyed cosy days in during rain storms, and breakfast in the garden in the sunshine. We appreciated the huge selection of guides, books and movies and the well equipped kitchen. The bathroom is a little basic and the shower a bit of a struggle for tall people (like us) , but was perfectly manageable. The back garden could do with a tidy/prune but we didn't really use it. The view of the sea from the bed was a real treat. Neighbours were all very friendly. We'll come again.

  • "Great 2 up 2 down cottage."

    Loved the vintage style accoutrements, which made us feel at home. Very big main bedroom, sea view in the distance, king size bed was a bonus. Good size kitchen with everything you need. TV has Netflix/Prime apps. Quiet area, 5 minute walk to Bridport shops. Lots of nice local walks without the need to take the car. This is a great base for all the West Dorset/East Devon attractions. We, a family of 4, had a very relaxing week.

  • "We had a great stay at this cottage."

    Brilliant location within easy walking distance of Bridport town centre. Some of the reviews talked about issues with parking but we had a long car and it was fine - we just took it slowly and put the wing mirrors in. Beds were very comfortable. Lounge area was nice with a log fire, lots of games and loads of information about Dorset and places to visit. There is a downstairs bathroom which was no problem for us. We had a great stay - thank you.

  • "The cottage has a view of the sea and the light of the town and West Bay from the top bedroom, which is big and comfortable."

    It has a nice garden at the front with an apple tree and a place to sit and that was lovely. There is also a pretty patio at the back. The selection of books and guides was super. The sofas comfortable and the kitchen functional and cosy. The cottage is set in the nicest part of Bridport, right up a narrow lane. We were there for Hatterday which is in the grounds of an old house with gardens nearby. There also a park up the hill, but we didn't have time to see it. The cottage is near the main street and the shops. I liked the decor and all the pictures, but it wasn't to the taste of everyone in our group. The oven could have done with cleaning and to make the cottage shine I would suggest a deeper clean between guests. We were very at home and had a relaxing time. .

  • "We liked the cottage very much."

    It was nice and close to the town with lots of useful information and relatively cool downstairs! The location was good with may places to visit close by.Well equipped except we felt that it would have been useful to have had a non stick smaller frying pan. Just a thought- the kitchen chairs seemed a little wobbly and one of the top of the seat backs came apart. It may be useful to mention how narrow the access is I am very glad we didn't have a larger car! All in all it was lovely.

  • "Great holiday within walking distance of town."

    Narrow driveway with small turning circle leading to parking space.

  • "The only drawback to this delightful property was the extremely narrow passage up to the cottage."

    Only a small vehicle would manage this so future occupants should be aware that a larger family car wouldn't be able to access the property. As we had a small car, there was no problem. The cottage was very well appointed, lovely view of the sea, close to Bridport main streets which made the stay really great.

  • "Although the cottage itself was ok, it really does need some TLC."

    It is a victorion property so wasn't surprised by the steep staircase or downstairs bathroom. However it was the little things like the sofas are really worn along with the cushions all needing to be replaced. During these covid times the soft furnishings just seemed too used and I thought more of an effort should've been made to change these regularly. The cooker wasn't exactly clean either. There must've been a leak in the roof because there was a big water stain on the main bedroom ceiling (a little lick of paint would've made all the difference). But by far the worse thing was there was no mention of just how narrow the lane was to access the property. Its that tight that we had to pull in the side mirrors on our car to get up the lane, then there was the negotiating of the area to fit the car into the allocated space. If we had known this we would not have booked this property. To finish on a positive note the view from the main bedroom is gorgeous and Bridport is a wonderful town. West Bay is also just a couple of miles walk away.

The property

Bedford Terrace is a charming mid-terrace cottage residing in the picturesque market town of Bridport and just a few moments from the lovely seaside town of West Bay.

Providing a wonderful setting from which to enjoy all that the scenic Jurassic Coast has to offer, Bedford Terraces sleeps up to 4 guests and makes the perfect home away from home for family or friends seeking a memorable staycation in delightful Dorset.

Step inside the property into the cosy sitting room, traditionally styled with stained wood flooring and a rustic woodburning stove, exuding charm and warmth on those chillier evenings, where you can settle down and plan your holiday itinerary.

The spacious kitchen/diner follows suit with the traditional décor, homing a rustic dining table and contrasting wooded surfaces, inviting you can take a pew and enjoy a glass of wine whilst the designated chef of the group prepare a heart-warming meal, and in the warmer months, step outside into the enclosed patio area and breath in the refreshing coastal air whilst you sit and unwind after another exciting day spent exploring the local area.

Head upstairs where you can relax and recharge in one of the two bedrooms, the first of which being a sizeable kingsize bedroom where you can enjoy a view over the treetops framed by the sash window from the old-style rocking chair, and a charming twin bedroom, home to a selection of books and a plush armchair, inviting you to cosy up and escape into a novel.

Servicing the bedrooms is the family bathroom, brightly-decorated with a delightful pastel yellow, creating the perfect ambiance for a tranquil soak in the bathtub.

West Bay is most famous for its location scenes in the TV series Broadchurch and has a vast selection of restaurants, pubs and shops for you to discover, whether it be for your daily essentials or for that special souvenir to take back home.

The busy fishing harbour is a wonderful sight and the smell of freshly caught fish will have you rushing to the nearest takeaway chip shop, and there are many boat trips which can take you out on the water to relish in the spectacular clifftop scenery.

If you wish to travel further afield, the beautiful town of Lyme Regis is to the west of West Bay where you can marvel at the collections in Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, uncover the local history at Lyme Regis Museum and meet some underwater creatures at Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium.

However you spend your days in making memories with your loved ones, Bedford Terrace makes for wonderful base from which to enjoy all that the remarkable County of Dorset has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Lyme Regis 10 miles; West Bay 2 miles.

The attractive market town of Bridport grew up around the River Brit, and was shaped by its extensive history of rope and net making. The long, wide streets and alleyways between the houses were once where the flax strands were twisted into rope, while today those streets are filled with an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns. Bridport’s market is regularly featured on the River Cottage TV programme. 2 miles south of Bridport is the dramatic Jurassic coast at West Bay, now a World Heritage Site, home to the backdrop for TV's Harbour Lights and the coastal setting for popular Broadchurch, whilst the picturesque resort of Lyme Regis is within 10 miles. A superb base for exploring wonderful West Dorset.
