“Extremely spacious, comfortable, homely and well equipped cottage.”
Parking space mentioned is too small for any car but parking in village car park at rear of cottage is very convenient.
Parking space mentioned is too small for any car but parking in village car park at rear of cottage is very convenient.- Mrs Morrish, September 2020
Good location. Garden is a little small, although 'enclosed' it was not secure. A pet could easily wander out through the gaps in the undergrowth.- Mr Knowlton, September 2020
“This is a lovely cottage in a very peaceful Dorset village.”
The cottage is very well equipped with quality items and provides everything you need. Would certainly recommend.- Mr Witherell, July 2020
“The cottage was beautiful and spacious, had absolutely everything you would need for a weekend away or longer break.”
It was clean and well maintained, and the information left for visitors in the cottage on how the water heater worked, for example, was really helpful and easy to follow. My daughter was also impressed with the family games that were available! We did use the parking at the community hall (which is at the rear of the cottage), the arrival time at the cottage was set at 5pm, which meant in January we were arriving in the dark, so it was only once we were inside the cottage and found the information left by the owners, that we realised we could park there, we did leave our parking payment in the honesty box! One thing I had not realised was that Netherbury (where the cottage is located) was tricky to access. Once you turn off the main road, you are on a single track country lane for a reasonable distance. I hadn't really picked up on that from the listing. The other thing is that the village has a lovely church, with a clock that chimes at regular intervals, including throughout the night. I think for anyone staying here who is a light sleeper that might prove to be an issue. We did love the village though, it is a lovely example of a typical quaint English village, where you might expect to bump into Miss Marple.- Ms Abbott, January 2020
“Perhaps the best cottage we have stayed in.”
Everything did look quite new and the electrical equipment in the Kitchen was of high specification manufacture. It appeared that this was a newly fitted out cottage since everything was in prime condition. Everything we needed was provided We enjoyed the location in the small village and the surrounding countryside and coastline The visitor book contained the usual insignificant gripes about the church bell and the slight buzz from the water heater booster, but some people just love a gripe. These items were so minor they were totally irrelevant when set against all the positives that this accommodation has to offer It is a shame that the zip-together bed was not made into a pair of twin beds as arranged and confirmed through Sykes and the owner's son a week before we arrived, but it proved not to be a problem Well done all!- Mr Clay, August 2019
“The kitchen kettle urgently require a replacement internal filter.”
In the children's twin bedded room the Solar panel and water heater booster switch was very noisy.- Mr Boulton, July 2019
A new kettle has been provided. Thanks for letting us know. Sykes owner relations
“Lovely cottage, excellent facilities and beautiful location.”- Mr Vasic, June 2019
“Briar cottage is in a fantastic location.”
It’s quiet and beautifu,l and very accessible to both the countryside and beautiful beaches. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. It had plenty of space and little details thought of like the equipment in the kitchen, games to play, books to read, dvd’s, information about the cottage and surrounding area. We had a great time and would definitely return to the cottage and recommend to friends.- Mrs Balfour, May 2019
“Really lovely cottage in very quiet Dorset village.”
The place was very clean and tidy. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with pots, pans plates cutlery etc. The pub is a fair walk but very pleasant The Hare and Hounds. The cottage is about 10m drive into Bridport- Mr Downes, May 2019
“We really enjoyed our stay in Briar cottage and being in such a lovely area.”
Great for some walking but you should use a good O.S. map. The cottage was well equiped and furnished but the mattress was very firm(in our view). The kitchen was very good but too much unnecessary STUFF in the cupboards which meant not much space for our food storage. Thirty four trigger guns and various aerosols ( many almost empty) for cleaning is somewhat excessive. We decanted and reduced them as best we could. The cottage sleeps six, so why would you need more than twelve egg cups ! Four measuring jugs or three Tea Pots ! More usable storage space would be great and easily achieved . Having said all that, we found all the locals very friendly and would consider going again , by which time hopefully the owner's will have sorted out the storage space.- Mr Holdsworth, February 2019
Thank you for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed your holiday and that you would consider returning. As new owners last summer, we were delighted to take on such a well-equipped cottage. Having spent time there ourselves, we agree that the kitchen did have a bit too much stuff in it and we have de-cluttered it quite considerably and left cupboard space free for guests to store their provisions. 12 egg-cups is for sure too many! The walking in the area is indeed excellent and I hope that you found that we have three Ordnance Survey maps of the local area for guests to use to plan their walks, refreshment stops and beach visits. Look forward to seeing you again. Sykes owner relations
This three-bedroom cottage lies within the picturesque village of Netherbury, close to Beaminster and Bridport, conveniently placed for the Jurassic Coast and of course Dorset's central attractions.
The homely interior has been lovingly designed with families and friends in mind, also welcoming one well-behaved dog to its doors, with the large hallway being ideal for a dog-bed.
Follow the enclosed gravelled area, where you can choose to enter into the delightful kitchen, or alternatively the summery conservatory.
There is cosy a lounge/diner with a collection of 3 comfy sofas and a bean-bag with TV and a collection of good books, DVDs and games, a lovely place to snuggle up with a good book, or simply enjoy conversation over a home-cooked meal.
After a memorable evening, the upper floor brings you a peaceful night's sleep, with three sophisticated bedrooms including one double with en-suite, another double (king-size with a zip/link option) and one twin.
Softly furnished in a coordinated colour scheme, the pretty rooms will become your own little escape after a busy day out and about.
A family bathroom completes the cottage, classically presented with a shower over the bath.
For some time under the sun, why not spend an hour or two in the enclosed gravelled area with its host of furniture, somewhere peaceful to make plans and take in the fresh air.
Set in a picturesque valley, surrounded by rolling hills and wrapped around the river Brit, there is a tremendous community spirit in Netherbury with the Village Hall often showcasing activities and events.
The cottage is surrounded with delightful countryside walks and within easy reach of the Jurassic Coast beaches of West Bay, Burton Bradstock and Eype.
The wide main streets of Bridport contain more than a thousand listed buildings, these include the Court and West Mill in West Street.
There are still Wednesday and Saturday street markets held in the town.
A unique retreat in a cosy part of Dorset.
