  • "The cottage was wonderful, exactly as described and equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    The welcome basket was much appreciated. Kevin made sure we had everything we needed and gave us some great recommendations for local restaurants and pubs. We visited in January and were lucky with the weather and did a few nice walks in the area when it was less crowded. I would highly recommend Cuckoo Cottage to any couple who want to explore the Bridport area, it is set in a very quiet area with great views but only a short walk into town.

    Thankyou for your kind remarks it’s very much appreciated glad you enjoyed your stay at cuckoo cottage Property Owner

    Off road parking and nice outdoor seating area. No hesitation in recommending.

  • "Cuckoo Cottage is a lovely, stylish, spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped holiday cottage."

    The owners, Kevin and Chris who live next door, were welcoming and helpful when asked. We appreciated the Dorset tea, Moore biscuits and milk when we arrived. We breakfasted on the patio (weather permitting!) with a lovely green view over the valley. The cottage was spacious and comfortable, and on rainy days we were happy to 'stay at home'. An added bonus was the dedicated off-road car parking space. The only downside for us (we are in our 80s) was that although the town and the pub were indeed less than a mile, they were down a very steep hill which we couldn't manage. Perhaps this could be included in the description? Nevertheless an ideal holiday cottage.

    Set in a quiet area of Bridport the cottage has all the facilities you need. The bed is a good size & very comfortable. Good bathroom with shower & bath. The outlook is excellent over the town towards the landward side of West Bay cliffs. 5/10 minute walk into the town centre. Chris & Kevin are the perfect hosts. Thoroughly recommend this accommodation

    The accommodation is much larger than the photos show. The facilities and the hosts are outstanding, there literally was everything you could ever need in a permanent home, much more than you would expect in a holiday let.

    We found plenty to enjoy locally, particularly as we stayed during the week of the Folk festival, and appreciated the independent shops, cafes and galleries of the town. Being fortunate to have good weather, we enjoyed breakfast on the sunny patio most mornings and, being within relatively easy distance of West Bay, Lyme Regis and other attractions of the region, Cuckoo Cottage was a perfect base to explore from. It was also reassuring to have a designated parking space, just outside the door, to return to after a busy day's sightseeing. We appreciated the thoughtful extra touches provided by the owners and would love to stay here again.

The property

Cuckoo Cottage is a sleek contemporary cottage attached to the owner’s own lovely home, and it’s the perfect spot for a romantic getaway in the west of Dorset.

As you pull onto the front of the property, take in the beautiful countryside scenery that you’ll be able to sit amongst in the garden, with extensive rolling hills, it’s a wonderful backdrop to compliment this equally pretty property.

Step through the front door of the cream cottage and into the open-plan living space, covering the whole ground floor.

It boasts a spacious combination of a kitchen, sitting and dining room, with ample seating for you to kick back and unwind.

There’s a sofa for relaxed evenings and a dining table for you to share a romantic meal when you’re not exploring the local cuisine of Dorset.

Upstairs is a large bedroom, fit with a lavish king-size bed and sloping windows, you’ll be able to watch the sun shine to the rain pour; no matter the weather, this room is the perfect hideaway to spend lazy Sunday afternoons after a week of exploring.

In the summer months, the garden is the ideal spot to soak up the sun, with lovely seating on the raised patio above the lawn, enjoy food bought from the local town markets for lunch as you watch the sun set.

Once you’ve explored the markets held twice weekly within the town, spend an evening at Palmer’s Brewery, offering tours and tasting, this spot serves as an excellent anniversary gift.

The town hosts a variety of festivals throughout the summer months including the popular agricultural Melplash Show and for a more upbeat vibe, the Jurassic Fields Music Festival.

Head down to coast and visit West Bay where much of the TV series Broadchurch was filmed.

Spend a lazy day on the beach or join the South West Coast Path and explore the magnificent gold cliffs of Jurassic Coast.

Walk west towards Eype and the famous Golden Cap or east to Burton Bradstock and enjoy a pit stop the very popular Hive cafe.

Whatever the time of year there’s a lot to take in no matter your age or interests and Cuckoo Cottage will make the perfect base to explore from.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
