    “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 ...

    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 sot 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.

About the location

BRIDPORT

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.
