  • "We had a lovely stay at Lime Cottage."

    The cottage is located in the heart of the village and is only a few steps from the post office and The Three Horsehoes pub. The garden is well maintained and in a sunny position. The interior of the cottage is lovely and appears to have been very recently refurbished to a high standard. We loved the warmth of the cottage and the gas log burner which made the cottage even more cosier in the evenings.

  • "A very well appointed and comfortable cottage."

    The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable. We enjoyed our 4 night stay and would certainly book again. Some observations: 1. The glass gas hob was covered in a cooking oil spillage 2. Some more microwaveable dishes and cups would be very useful as well as smaller roasting tins 3. The utility door was difficult to open and close 4. A full length mirror in the main bedroom near to a power point would be helpful

    Thank you for your useful comments. We are glad that you had an enjoyable stay. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property tastefully presented in olde worlde style with modern facilities."

    One thought - hardly any coat hooks. It would be fairly easy to acquire some matt black iron ones in keeping with the general style and, we thought, place a few along the empty wall to the left of the dresser on the approach to the kitchen. Note: the looped chain controlling the blind over the back door detached itself from its coupling and we couldn’t get it back on.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, we will pass this on to the Owner and we will also look at the blind. We are pleased you loved the property and hope to welcome you back to Dorset soon. Property Owner

  • "A lovely period cottage in a wonderful location."

    All great although the mattress and sofas weren't good for us in terms of comfort - we appreciate that this is a personal preference and may not be an issue for everyone. The village is great with walks from the door. Three Horseshoes pub is excellent but gets booked up, so suggest contacting them well before travel. Would stay again.

    Thank you for your kind comments and useful feedback. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful old cottage with a very homely feel."

    For me the sofas weren’t comfortable at all though, they’re too small, but that’s a minor point and we managed. The rest of the cottage is lovely, with all the amenities you could need. Only thing I couldn’t find were any cutting boards for vegetables etc, but again this was a minor point. The bed is huge in the main bedroom and very comfortable, even though there is a slope in the room due to the age of the building, but this didn’t really affect sleep at all. The main bathroom is also huge, the bath is quite shallow, but with the roof slope above that does make some sense. Only thing I would suggest is moving the basket on the wall further down, as it does rather get in the way when sitting in the bath. In the small shower room, beware of the towel rail if it has been left on and then sit on the toilet. It’s very close, and gets very hot. Appreciate that it’s there to dry towels etc in there, but really would be better without. Location wise it’s excellent, with two very nice pubs very close, both of which serve very good food and have lovely staff. Hive beach is walkable if you’re able, but otherwise is a short drive, plenty of parking there and a lovely beach. Parking can be a little tricky at times, close to the cottage, due to the Three Horseshoes pub being very popular, some people also do park in the village to walk to Hive Beach, so just be prepared to have to park a little distance from the cottage on occasion. All in all we had a really lovely stay at Lime Cottage.

    Thank you for your helpful feedback. We are glad that you had a lovely stay. Property Owner

  • "Delightful!"

    Perfect start to our summer holidays. The cottage was just as described. We were lucky enough to enjoy a summers evening in the garden and then cosy up in front of the fire the following night. The cottage provided us with a very comfortable base to go exploring, we just wish we had longer.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

The property

Lime Cottage is a charming, thatched home located in the Dorset village of Burton Bradstock, tucked away within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Lime Cottage, a delightful dwelling that can accommodate four people, is also close to the Jurassic Coastline and oozes style and charm, making it the ideal base for a group break to Devon.

Park up and head indoors to be welcomed by the living/dining area, replete with plush sofas, a Smart TV, a gas fire, exposed stonework, and original beams overhead; use this space to unwind after a day of exploration.

Prepare meals in the country-style kitchen, which is fully-equipped to ease your stay, before enjoying mealtimes indoors or outdoors in the rear garden, a suntrap during the warmer months.

Return indoors as the sun sets to unwind in one of the two bedrooms, which include a super-king-size and a twin, and both honour the house's historical roots with exposed beams throughout.

Awaken to a refreshing shower or bath, before heading into the village to fill up on necessities at the local convenience store and sample some delectable meal at The Three Horseshoes Pub.

Hive Beach lies down the coast, while West Bay Beach is close by and accessible through the Jurassic Coast walking track; for golf enthusiasts, the Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club is also nearby and well worth a visit.

Before continuing to Weymouth and its shoreline of attractions, including the Nothe Gardens, the RSPB Lodmoor, Weymouth Beach, and Alexandra Gardens, continue west to reach the Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens with the swannery nearby, where you can also don your hiking boots and make the journey up to the ruins of Abbotsbury Castle.

Plan a trip to Lime Cottage with so much to see and do.
