  • "The property was adequate for what we paid but the outside area was poor needing maintenance and importantly one bathroom was without bath mat and both needed anti slip shower mats."

  • "Had a lovely peaceful break at the Hideaway."

    Beach within easy walking distance. The Hideaway had everything you needed, very clean and tidy. Great location if you want a quiet break. Very good location for coastal walks. Highly recommended.

  • "If you want secluded, quiet, peaceful, this is it."

    The property was very clean and well equipped. Beds comfortable as was the lounge furniture. Jill and Keith were available should there have been anything amiss, fortunately this was not an issue for us.

    Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Very nice warm cozy accommodation, would have liked a gate on decking & garden better fenced in for our dog so we could relax more."

    Also suggest there should be more information for anyone with mobility issues as right outside & all around the property is very steep. So had to use our car more. And please note that the old steps down to the only beach there & very old & dangerous. That was a shame & disappointing.

    We do advise that there is no secure area for your dog. The lodge is in the countryside and complete security for pets is not possible. The photos do show the layout of the property. I would have thought that you would have looked at the area before deciding to book. Unfortunately the beach steps are out of our control. Property Owner

  • "The hideaway is the perfect ideallic place to stay."

    It is a modern property and the decor is lovely. A very spacious property in a perfect setting. The owners are lovely and friendly, we have been coming to eype for 35 years and Keith who owns it I've known since I was a child as he used to own the caravan park. How delighted I was to see him.

    Really warm on arrival. Owners close by but leave you to enjoy your holiday. Fab location for exploring the coast. Equipped with everything you need to have a home from home break.

  • "Great property, spacious, clean and warm."

    Be prepared for a very narrow single track road to access property. Great walking access to beach. Not a big issue for us but tv not easy to navigate and set up. WiFi is pretty non existent too if u are driven by this. That's the only negatives.

  • "We absolutely loved it here."

    Only drawback with the area (not the accomodation at all), are the extremely narrow lanes into the village, that is obviously nothing to with the owners of the property of the lodge. It must be a nightmare peak season for locals and visitors alike, trying to negotiate the narrow lanes when meeting other traffic! Also, we should have mentioned, but figured we could do without the tv for the weekend, we could not get a signal on the tv at all, but we were better off without so we didn't raise the issue! We are planning to come again off-peak for another short break in the near future.

  • "Great place for our short break to visit the Dorset coast and towns."

    The lodge is so comfortable and the location was perfect for a quiet break near the sea. The owners very friendly. We are looking to visit again soon.

The property

The Hideaway is a beautifully-presented lodge, located close to the beach and cliffs at Eype, on the stunning Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

Enjoying a rural outlook over the Dorset countryside this two-bedroom holiday home is ideal for couples and small families, keen walkers or those wanting to enjoy a coastal break by the sea. The open-plan interior is bright and spacious with high vaulted ceilings and patio doors leading out to the wooden terrace that wraps around the lodge.

The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking meals, perhaps using some of the amazing local produce Dorset is known for.

When it comes to relaxing, the seating area has two sofas, a TV, and electric coal-effect fire to give a cosy feel on cooler evenings. Located all on the ground-floor, the lodge has two bedrooms; a double with ensuite shower room, and a twin bedroom that looks out to the garden at the rear.

The family bathroom has a bath with shower over giving guests the option of a relaxing soak or a refreshing shower after a day at the beach. Outside, the lodge sits within its own grounds with a gravel driveway for parking, a rear garden that is mainly lawn and backing on to fields.

A large terrace wraps around the front and sides of the lodge making for an ideal space to sit and relax with a book or savouring mealtimes alfresco whilst enjoying the most tranquil of settings. Located only a short walk from Eypes Mouth beach and cliffs, The Hideaway is a great choice for beachgoers and water sports enthusiasts alike.

With the South West Coast Path passing close by, avid walkers can enjoy this scenic stretch of the world heritage Jurassic Coastline including Golden Cap, the highest point of the south coast.

The village of Eype, one of West Dorset’s prettiest villages, is full of thatched stone cottages dating back to the 18th and 19th century.

When you don’t feel like cooking, guests can enjoy a meal at The New Inn, which is located in the village, or a takeaway from Eype Eats, situated adjacent to Eype Mouth Chalet park. Nearby West Bay is a charming fishing village and harbour situated on one of the most dramatic stretches of the Jurassic Coast.

With delightful beaches and a wonderful selection of places to eat that surround the harbour, West Bay is a popular destination for holidaymakers and day trippers alike. Bridport offers visitors a great choice of fascinating attractions, many of which celebrate the heritage and art influences in the town.

Beer lovers will enjoy taking a tour of Palmer’s, England’s only thatched brewery, with all the ales made to a centuries old process.

In the heart of the town, Bucky Doo Square is home to the bustling Saturday market with stalls and producers visiting from around the local area to sell unique gifts, as well as delicious food and drink. Other popular day trips include Charmouth with its Heritage Coast centre where you will pick up tips on finding fossils on the shores nearby, or Abbotsbury with its acclaimed swannery and subtropical gardens. The Hideaway is ideally situated for those seeking a relaxing coastal break amidst the rolling Dorset countryside.

Please note that the road to the village of Eype and the chalet is a single track road which is narrow in places.

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

About the location

EYPE

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 a couple of miles from Bridport and 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 seafront. You'll also find a SPAR supermarket selling essentials, as well as a selection of pubs and restaurants in the village, including The New Inn, the Admiral's Restaurant and Bar, and Martin's Bar and Restaurant. 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.
