    Steve and Chris very accommodating Cottage immaculate and in a glorious area.Just two things I would comment on is the patio area at rear, really does need some TLC, looks neglected and spoils the rest of property. Also could do with a new mattress in main bedroom, it's getting saggy and gave us backache. Apart from that, a wonderful property.

  • "Our second visit to the cottage was as nice as the first."

    The cottage is fully equipped and comfortable . There were a couple of technical issues with the fire in the lounge and the lavatory in the bedroom but it didn't affect our enjoyment. There is easy access to the coastal towns of West Bay, Lyme Regis and Weymouth and lots of pubs that serve food and are dog friendly.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, set in a beautiful location."

    The owners - who live next door - are extremely friendly, sociable and helpful. Everything has been considered that you could possibly need in the cottage. It is very well equipped and extremely clean. The kitchen is spacious making it comfortable to prepare meals. The beds are comfortable and there is a lot of storage space in both. We all slept very well. The one and only thing I might say is that the sofas in the sitting room are a bit tired and saggy. However, it would not stop me returning or recommending this lovely cottage that is excellently looked after by its two fine owners. They care about making sure you are comfortable and happy during your stay and that was very much appreciated by us all.

  • "Despite changeable weather we have just enjoyed a very enjoyable week at this spacious, ground level well appointed property."

    Enjoying coffee and cake, while our two mini labradoodles investigated the enclosed rear patio area, my wife’s comment was “ it’s lovely, spotlessly clean, comfortable and has got everything we will need”. To make sure we didn’t go short Steve’s home made sausages, bacon and new laid eggs made a welcome breakfast. Located down a quiet country lane about 1 1/2 miles North of Bridport there is plenty of off road parking alongside the house with no disturbance from the road .. or the owners who were always available without any intrusion. There lots of walks to enjoy, Bridport has four supermarkets, a weekly market, good dog friendly cafes and inns serving excellent food - The Half Moon and Tea Traders cafe in Beaminster are worth a visit. West Bay is lively, on a wet day the dog friendly garden centre with large cafe is welcoming and further afield the amazing Beer Quarry Caves (dog friendly) are well worth a visit. With out any reservations we can highly recommend this property and intend to return ourselves, hopefully next year.

    I thought it had everything. When I 'phoned I had to ask about Microwave as it was not listed (but it was provided). Good thing I took my own washing up brush & steel pan scourer; they only had a soft pad. Otherwise, everything was of a superb standard. The sun lounge was glorious. (Maybe a radio that could be used in the kitchen & sun lounge would have been nice). Used T.V. in lounge. WiFi signal excellent. (Poor mobile 'phone - on my network). I would be much easier if a N.G.R. (National Grid Reference) had been quoted; much easier than following directions. (I gave them their reference for future use.)

    The cottage well its truly amazing, let me start with location set outside of Bridport in the countryside about 10 mins drive from West Bay which is perfect for a quiet getaway and close enough to the coast to explore. The owners Steve and Chris are lovely and nothing is too much trouble, their dogs are also super friendly and wish we could have brought Grace home!. The cottage itself was a perfect mix of olde world charm with every mod con you could wish for particularly in the kitchen and absolutely spotless (thanks Chris). All on one floor which is great for elderly with two good size bedrooms (one with ensuite) a beautiful bathroom. We ate in as we have a quite a big dog who is perhaps not pub friendly . Great outside space with access to huge field to walk your dog, to step outside and hear the cows mooing and chickens clucking a real outdoor experience if like us you are townies who dont get out much!. Personally i loved sitting in the conservatory unwinding on a sunny afternoon in a peaceful environment away from it all. I can honestly say they have thought of everything and the additional bonus of Steve bringing us home cured products, fresh eggs and tomatoes for our breakfast, well what more could you want oh and not forgetting the welcome cake.

Steve also kindly offered us some of his home cured bacon, homemade sausages and fresh eggs from the chickens, which went down a treat. The property is slightly outside Bridport which meant it was lovely and peaceful with only the sounds of nature to be heard when sat in the garden. An easy drive into the town and equally easy to get to places such as Lyme Regis and Charmouth. Grace, Ruby and Billy (the resident dogs) were all very friendly and mixed well with our own dog.

    Hosts very friendly and generous. Only two issues to consider: they have two very inquisitive dogs, which was fine for us as we had our two with us. If you don’t love dogs, be aware of this. Other issue is main bedroom curtains which are very thin and lightweight. If you need a decent amount of dark to sleep past dawn, you’ll be awake before 5.00am every morning! Otherwise, perfect in almost every way!

    Mr John YarkerNov 2016

  • "Whilst Grazeland Cottage was not our first choice, it far exceeded our expectations and we were glad that we hadn't been able to have the apartment in Bridport (to sleep 2) that we had originally booked."

    The cottage was amazing. Extremely spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. I have never before stayed in accommodation where the kitchen boasts 4 measuring jugs! All the appliances were top quality and immaculately clean. The owners next door couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The location was superb, very peaceful and very dog friendly. My daughter and partner and their dog joined us mid-week and their spaniel was happy to sleep in the back lobby, connected to the kitchen by a stable door - most useful. I strongly recommend Grazeland Cottage as a lovely place to stay in Dorset. Stayed July 2016

    Mrs Julie StansfieldAug 2016

  • "Absolutely perfect place to stay."

    Hosts were on hand should any question relating to the area/restaurants be sought but were never intrusive. Very quiet house with delightful garden full of wildlife and excellent suitable chairs for more elderly persons to enjoy the wonderful conservatory, a delight even on the drizzly moments. The house was very well equipped with everything all in very good order. Decoration, information and facilities within the property were fully as described. A very homely vacation stay, would have no hesitation recommending or re-visiting in future - stayed June 2016

    Mrs Marian WintertonJun 2016

  • "Grazeland is a truly "home from home" cottage; we love our yearly visit."

    I have already booked for next year!! Stayed May 2016

    Mrs NealeMay 2016

  • "Excellent property with everything that you could want for a relaxing holiday."

    Stayed April 2016

    Mrs Clara Wilson-GreenApr 2016

  • "Great service received from Dreams and the owners."

    Very clean and well-kept property. Great location, great for taking the dog. Not many that we'd be happy to return to but this one we would. Thank you. Stayed March 2016

    Mrs Sara RussellApr 2016

  • "Most enjoyable and relaxed holiday in pleasant surroundings with considerate owners on hand to help and resolve any issues if necessary."

    We will certainly try to re-visit at a later date. Stayed October 2015

    Mr CoxOct 2015

  • "No problems."

    Beautiful weather made the holiday. Stayed September 2015

    Mrs PlaceOct 2015

  • "The cottage was everything that we had hoped for."

    It was well equipped and presented, and the owners made us very welcome. It was ideal for Bridport, Lyme Regis, and other Dorset resorts. We would certainly come back again, and have no hesitation in recommending the cottage! Stayed September 2015

    Mrs Maureen JoinsonSep 2015

  • "We arrived a little early and were met by Steve the owner who informed us cleaning was still occurring but invited us into his home , where he gave us a drink and chatted about the local area explaining what was on and how to get about."

    He made us feel like we were visiting family not hiring his cottage. Once ready he showed us into the cottage and explained how to use the heating etc. he told us if we wanted fresh veg from his planters or greenhouse to help ourselves and would drop some fresh eggs in from his hens later , which he did. This cottage is in the countryside and so relaxing as you only hear the sounds of the great outdoors and no traffic sounds. Steve is an excellent host/ landlord as he is friendly , unassuming and down to earth. Stayed August 2015

    Mrs Denise SpenceAug 2015

  • "A fantastic cottage with everything you could ask for and very hospitable owners."

    Would highly recommend and will be visiting again.

    Mrs Clara Wilson-GreenDec 2014

  • "The cottage is ideal: attractive, well-furnished, all kitchen equipment that could be required (except a tea cosy)is to hand."

    The bedrooms well-appointed and the beds & bedding just right for the grotty weather we had - they didn't encourage us to "get-up-& go". The garden is very attractive, well laid out & maintained. Our hosts were welcoming, helpful & wasn't their fault that the promised eggs failed to materialise. Altogether we made a good choice! How pleasant it is to be woken by a cockerel.

  • "Brilliant property, perfect in every way."

    Could not ask for better hosts and perfect for exploring the Jurassic coast. Regards Martyn Wassell

The property

Sitting next to the owner's home Grazeland offers comfort and privacy, which are a priority with this property being ideal for all ages. This property is all on ground floor level, apart from one of the bedrooms which has a small step up to it.

Overlooking the generous rear patio area and the attached 6 acre paddock with rising fields ahead is the kitchen; leading to an inviting south facing conservatory with views to the large, lawned front garden and the rolling hills beyond is the lounge/diner.

Enjoy a refreshing drink whilst gazing at the green hills of Dorset. Surrounded by the glorious Dorset countryside, it is perfect for ramblers and walkers alike.

Forming part of the famous Jurassic coast, the closest beach is only a leisurely drive of approx. 5 miles away.

Locally acclaimed, and only 2 miles away, is The Shave Cross pub.

With its interesting mix of high street and old curiosity shops and weekly market Bridport is just a short drive away and is well worth a visit.

Grazeland Cottage is ideally situated for reaching Dorset's tourist attractions, alternatively it provides a peaceful retreat if you would rather simply enjoy admiring the peace and quiet of the countryside from the comfort of your arm chair.

This property is the perfect romantic retreat while offering opportunities to discover the rolling hills of the countryside.

Guests can exercise their pet in the small enclosed yard and are welcome to use the rest of the gardens and field where the owners' dog, cats and chickens roam freely.

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.

NOTE: Garden with covered pond.
NOTE: The annex is next to owners’ home.
NOTE: Guests are requested not to leave their pet unattended within the property.
