    Super modern bungalow in a quiet area near the coast. Super helpful hosts Spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped We have several breaks in the year and things are top of my list to take are ,rubber anti slip shower mat, torch,and tablecloth,but they were all provided. Great dog walking area ,not that we have one.Just R&R for us.!

  • "Very nice purpose built holiday cottage."

    Immaculately clean, everything looked new and shiney! Well equipped kitchen, comfy bed and super cosy duvet. Would have liked bigger bath towels. Great location for exploring the area on foot or by car. Very doggy friendly. Could have done with some more information about the area, leaflets on places to visit, local walks etc. Very few extras provided, no tea or milk, dog bowls etc. Most cottages I've stayed in provide this but I take my own just in case. After a 6 hour drive I needed a brew. Although there was a nice bottle of wine! The little conservatory gets really warm and is great for muddy boots and soggy coats. Personally I'd have put a little sofa in there as it was a lovely spot to sit and look out over the fields. Luckily I was blessed with sunshine all week. But it was cold so the generous supply of logs for the log burner was much appreciated. As a bonus I was allowed to let my dog have a run about in the adjacent enclosed field which he loved. It's a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Well worth a visit.

    5 minutes walk to Hive Beach or 3 minutes to the Three Horseshoes pub which serves great food! Everything in the cottage was perfect, clean as a whistle and with everything you could wish for. The owners Jill and Alan are very welcoming and always on hand if anything is needed. It's a perfect little place by the sea, great walks nearby including the South West Coast Path, easy access to Bridport for shopping and close to the resorts of Lyme Regis and Weymouth too. Oh and I don't think we've ever slept so well!!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cliff Barn."

    The bungalow is perfect, very clean & comfortable inside and with lovely outside seating too. The owners were very welcoming. Superb location, quiet but within easy walking distance of the village pubs & shop & also a short walk across the field to Hive beach & the beach cafe. The coastal path is very close to the property so great for walkers. We ate at both the village pubs & the beach cafe & the food was superb, useful to book at the pubs as they get busy. Burton Bradstock is very handy for visiting other places & we went to Lyme Regis, Bridport & the gardens at Abbotsbury which were beautiful. The car park on Hive beach is National Trust so free to members. Thanks Alan & Jill for a lovely stay, we will be back, Sue & Mike

  • "Cliff Barn is a super holiday cottage, perfectly situated 100 yards from the South West Coastal Path, and just a few minutes from the beach in one direction and the delightful village in the other."

    It is really well kitted out for two (plus one dog!!) with everything you need for a relaxing week away from it all, and the small garden area ideal for relaxing or just letting the dog out last thing at night!! For a small property you had the choice of three tables to sit and read or eat or play games at, in the main open plan room, the porch area or outside. We loved being able to explore on foot so easily and even if you did want a change of scenery, there is so much nearby. The furthest we explored in a week was to Lyme Regis just 20 or so minutes away, and West Bay, Bridport and Abbotsbury are much nearer. We didn’t even need the Morrisons at Bridport as we had arranged a delivery for the day of arrival. The owners were very welcoming and often greeted us whilst pottering about in their garden next door, and had also kindly left a bottle of wine for us on arrival. We were perhaps fortunate that the weather was a little cooler for our week, as one very small idea would be to have an umbrella in the garden to provide a bit more shade. We have rebooked already for 2024.

Everything you need for a break away. Very comfortable inside , large bed , recliner chairs , good size TV, , all you need is there. WestBay , Yarmouth Lyme Regis all a short drive away..

  • "This was our second time staying at Cliff Barn, Burton Bradstock and it was good being back there again."

    The owners are friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is modern, spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's peaceful setting is perfect for a relaxing break. It has safe private parking alongside the property, and a small enclosed garden which is mostly paved with a raised grass area. The coastal path is just a few minutes walk from the property, and Hive beach with cafe a few minutes further on, so it's a great area for walkers. The village has 2 pubs, a well stocked shop, and post office store, all are a short downhill walk away. (The climb back up the lane could be challenging for some people) All in all we love it here and thoroughly recommend Cliff Barn to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay.

  • "The minimalistic design is just right for holiday accommodation."

    Everything needed for a relaxing stay is provided and the standard of cleanliness is extremely high. It is much appreciated by this recent guest and I certainly hope to stay again. The area is excellent for walkers and Burton Bradstock, just a few minutes down the hill, is a quintessential Dorset village with much of architectural interest. Many walks start here and it is great fun exploring the area without the noise of traffic and lots of people. Walking the coast path is less pleasant though, due to the high number of other walkers and an ever increasing number of ugly holiday chalets and static caravans stretching out from the beach well in to the surrounding countryside, spoiling the views. Thank goodness for the protected National Trust land!

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of Burton Bradstock and in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is Cliff Barn.

A charming renovated one bedroom single storey building located within Cliff Farm in a stunning, quiet location.

Cliff Barn offers up to date and modern facilities while retaining its charm and cosy feel.

Upon entering the property you are welcomed into the spacious porch where you can kick off your muddy walking shoes before relaxing in the contemporary open plan living space.

The spacious open plan Lounge/Kitchen/Diner has a well equipped modern kitchen, including microwave and dishwasher and a dining table for two overlooking the field and South West Coast path beyond.

A log burning stove, two reclining armchairs and Smart TV will ensure you have a relaxing and cosy stay.

The spacious accommodation offers one bedroom with king size bed, Smart TV and an ensuite with walk in shower.

Take in the views at the bistro table and chairs in the porch accessed by doors from the lounge area and leading to the sheltered garden, an enclosed safe area for your four legged companions.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful base, a short stroll will bring you to the village centre, where you will find two pubs, serving food, a Post Office and garage that can provide all those essential supplies.

Within a few moments of Cliff Barn’s front door you can access the South West Coast Path and the magnificent Hive Beach offering peaceful seclusion with café and the perfect spot to swim or paddleboard the day away.

Slightly further is the market town of Bridport, where you will find a twice-weekly market (Saturday and Wednesday) and plenty of independent shops and cafés to explore one afternoon.

Your visit won’t be complete without a trip to West Bay, famous for its starring role in ITV’s Broadchurch series, sit on the harbour side and enjoy some fresh local fish and chips followed by local award-winning ice cream.

When staying at Cliff Barn access to indoor bowling at Bridport Indoor Bowls Club is available and for people who have not tried bowling before lessons can also be arranged.

Cliff Barn is the perfect retreat for couples who want to escape to the country and enjoy all that the Dorset Coast has to offer.

After a busy day return to Cliff Barn and relax in the garden with a glass or two of wine.
