  • "The cottage was warm and comfortable."

    The selection of walks from the door amazing. For rainy days there are visits to Lyme Regis, Bridport, the Hive cafe, all great. We really enjoyed our short break.

    Really glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and the wonderful local walks! Really pleased you had fun in Bridport and Lyme Regis too - great places to wander… Thanks for the great comments. Property Owner

  • "The location and cleanliness were top marks."

    The size of the property space was not, there was very little room to move around, and the bathroom being located literally at the top of the stairs we believe to be a health and safety risk. The headroom by the microwave was inadequate for an average height adult, and the sofa past its best for comfort. I would advertise it going forward as not suitable for over 60's. PS: the TV was frustrating to operate.

The property

Tucked away in the idyllic village of Eype, Dorset, is this picture postcard cottage, Lea Cottage.

Enjoying a superb location within the Dorset AONB, just moments away from the beach and local amenities, Lea Cottage is a fantastic family-friendly dwelling for couples or a family of four, plus their canine companion.

The property benefits from two off-road parking spaces in a nearby car park, and a lovely rear, enclosed garden where you can enjoy meals alfresco.

Step into the open-plan living space where you will find a well-equipped kitchen for rustling up your best dishes, ready to savour at the dining table for four over a bottle of wine, before retiring to the plush seating to relax in front of the woodburning stove as your favourite show plays out on the Smart TV.

Head upstairs, where you can freshen up with your choice of bath or shower in the well-appointed bathroom, before retreating to one two tastefully-decorated bedrooms, a king-size and a bunk, to catch up on some much-needed rest.

Explore the village, famous for its feature in the hit ITV series of Broadchurch, where you will find the welcoming pubs and restaurants of The New Inn, Eype’s Mouth, and Martin’s Bar and Restaurant, a well-stocked supermarket, a delightful café, the excellent Shepher’s Down Pitch ‘n’ Putt Course, close proximity to the renowned South West Coast Path, and the golden sands of Eype Beach.

Nearby, you will find Bridport, where you can dine at The Oddfellows Arms, Hope & Anchor, and Soulshine, attend the popular Jurassic Fields Music Festival in July, catch a film or live band at the Bridport Electric Palace, spot the local wildlife in the nearby Bothenhampton Nature Reserve, or hike along the stunning Jurassic Cliffs.

Further afield, you’ll find Lyme Regis, home to the Lyme Regis Museum, Lyme Regis Fossil Beach, Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, or enjoy a spot of fine dining at the Michelin Star restaurants of Lilac, Robin Wylde, and The Oyster & Fish House.

All this and more awaits at Lea Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Bridport 1.8 miles; Lyme Regis 9.6 miles; Seaton 18.4 miles.

Eype sits on one of the most dramatic sections of the Jurassic Coastline, and famously features one of ITV’s series Broadchurch’s most iconic locations. We’ll leave you guessing as to which one until you visit. The beach at Eype is a steeply shelving pebble beach that is dog friendly all year round and just 3 miles from Bridport and 4 from West Bay, where many other Broadchurch locations can be viewed, as well enjoying local fish and chips on the harbour side and ice creams on the sea front. Bridport offers all the high street amenities you will need along with a much-coveted antiques and collectables market. Golden Cap, the highest point in Dorset, sits on the South West Coast path and is just 4 miles from Eype, although it’s the highest point there are moderate routes to walk to the top, where spectacular far reaching views along the coast will be your reward.
