Nestling in a picturesque valley a fifteen minute drive from the Jurassic Coast, Barbridge Cottage is close to beaches, walks, fossil hunting, country houses, gardens and lovely pubs. Up a short unmade track, the open plan cottage is on one level throughout, with easy access for wheelchairs. Guests enter the vaulted living-room, with its comfy sofas and wood-burner. The kitchen has a two-oven Aga, and French doors open onto a terrace with an ornamental pond and lovely views over the smallholding, a fishing lake, and the countryside beyond. The double bedroom has an en suite bathroom, leading to the wet-room (also accessed from the hall, so useful as a second bathroom). The wet-room and cloakroom are equipped with convenient handrails.
The countryside surrounding the cottage is wonderfully peaceful and guests can wander, fish (the lake is stocked with carp, rudd and roach), and meet the smallholding's chickens, ducks and sheep. The nearby market town of Bridport has a range of independent shops, many selling locally sourced produce. Further afield visit Lyme Regis, a fabulous day out for all ages, browse the fossil shops, venture to the end of the iconic Cobb, or relax with ice cream and marvel at the spectacular Jurassic Coast's Golden Cap, the highest point on the Jurassic Coast is easily visible from here.
