    “It was an attractive cottage and well equipped the problems were with the shower which was hand held and did not function and could not be adjusted there for it was either scalding hot or cold.”

    The bath was very slippery to stand in to attempt a shower. The toilet in the bathroom was very reluctant to flush. The stairs were steep and had a glass door at the bottom.

The property

A delightful, semi-detached cottage set in the tiny hamlet of Greenham, Sunny Dell Cottage was built in 1841 originally a mill workers cottage for the adjacent flaxmill.

After a day of rambling, look forward to unwinding in the sitting room where a woodburning stove is housed in a feature inglenook fireplace, offering a relaxing ambiance to the room.

Gather with your loved ones for a hot brew and later in the evening enjoy a competitive board game at the dining table after dinner.

You can whip up a tasty breakfast for everyone in the well-appointed kitchen before heading out to see the local sights.

On your return from your adventures, you have the king-size bedroom to catch your rest, finished to a charming standard with bedside tables and wardrobes.

In front of the cottage is the mill building with a path that leads to wonderful mile long walks through the Dorset fields and woods.

There is also a river that runs behind Sunny Dell Cottage, which is home otters and salmon amongst other wonderful wildlife.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming property, Lyme Regis is only a few miles away where "The French Lieutenant's Woman" was made, and to the south is the lovely town of Bridport, home of sailmakers.

The market town of Crewkerne can be reached in a short drive, with a selection of independent shops, a museum and inns serving good food and local cider.

Two wonderful pubs are within a mile or so from Sunny Dell Cottage, The Squirrel and The Royal Oak, as well as excellent takeaways to choose from.

Sunny Dell Cottage greets you with warmth and its old world charm embraces you.

It oozes smiles and comfort, and, if its sunny, and you have your wine, sit in it's sheltered garden and drink in the Dorset peace and quiet that you so badly need.

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.
