  • "The house is in a fantastic location, easy walk to the playground, beach , and centre."

    The house was clean, neat and obviously well maintained. The welcome pack of milk, coffee, tea and biscuits was very appreciated. We plan to book again and thoroughly recommend this property 10 out of 10. The observations below are intended to improve this outstanding site further and to guide other guests. The toilet door squeaks on closing and can disturb light sleepers, the towel rail does not heat up at the top and may need bleeding, the latch on the outside gate is difficult to shut from the outside and may need oiling. To repeat, this is a fantastic property and i look forward to booking again, thank you to the owners for allowing us to have a wonderful break with our grandchildren.

    Peaceful location with good parking. Nice easy walk to the beach. Couldn't find a mop to clean paw prints off the floor!

  • "Buttercups is ideally positioned close to West Bay."

    It was a short walk to the beach and port. We visited the George where the food and local Palmers ale were very good. It was easy to explore other places like Lyme Regis, Swanage and Dorchester by car. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable and was a great base for our holiday.

  • "Buttercups is a lovely place to stay, it has everything you need, the one thing ..."

    Buttercups is a lovely place to stay, it has everything you need, the one thing that lets it down is the settee for sure but that is going to be replaced quite soon I believe, the whole house is well equipped and the garden is great if you have dogs, the walk in to West Bay is really pleasant, Bridport just a short drive away, if you have any problems the owners are on the end of the phone and nothing is too much trouble for them

    Thank for your feedback we are pleased you loved your stay at Buttercups. The Owner has replaced the settee following yours and other guest feedback. we hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "Great house very clean , well equipped and a nice secure back garden."

    Excellent location for Bridport shopping or West Bay beach. There is a good pathway to walk to West Bay without going on the main road. Good for visiting Hive , Eype and Chesil beaches that are only a short drive away. Only one thing I would change about this property is change the settee it is way too hard to sit on after a days walking and exploring.

  • "Superb location and a lovely well appointed holiday home."

    Nice secure garden for my dog.Lounge furniture could be more comfortable and a grab handle in the bath/shower would be useful as it is a little high getting out of but minor niggles.Will definitely return as so convenient and some great walks right on the doorstep.

  • "Fantastic location!"

    House was very clean! One downside was the sofa isn’t very comfortable. West bay is a beautiful location and has everything that we were looking for, dog friendly, great bars and places to eat. Outstanding scenery and beautiful walks.

  • "An ideal location for two foster carers, one teenager and their Border Collie who wanted a quiet time for walking, fishing and eating."

    The sofa was not quite as relaxing as described but this was a minor point. Otherwise the much needed holiday met our expectations in all areas and exceeded expectations in others (particularly the teenager who loved the TV system with all its channels while the adults chilled).

  • "Buttercups is a neat modern house on a quiet estate."

    It has everything you need for your stay, even a box of dog friendly supplies. The back garden gets the afternoon and evening sun and is great for an evening drink. It is a gentle, flat 8-10 minute walk along a well surfaced footpath into West Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

    A leisurely 10 minutes walk along a well kept all weather path virtually straight to the beach. ( which is one of the best in the area )
