Lyme Regis is a lovely place for a day out.
The inland countryside is so beautiful here too. This is Eggardon Hill, one of many Iron Age hill forts in this area.
The stunning cliffs at West Bay, Bridport - just a few miles to the east of Doghouse Farm.
When you spot this iconic hill outside Bridport you will know that you are a stone's throw from the farm.

September 2019

Very clean and lovely cottage, w of Golden Cap and wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Bridport is an excellent town with good shopping areas; the Farm Shop up the road is a miscellany of goods.

September 2019

A well located cottage with lovely rural views.

August 2019

Lovely accommodation in peaceful surroundings. The cottage is compact but has everything you need to guarantee a comfortable stay. Lots of extra finishing touches which make a difference. This was our fourth visit to the Dairy and hopefully will not be our last!

August 2019

It is a well-furnished house in a beautiful setting. You can take the most beautiful walks from the cottage.

July 2019

The Dairy was very comfortable and ideal for 2 people. Watching the sunset over Golden Cap in the evening from the patio was lovely.

June 2019

Very comfortable and clean cottage and wonderful welcome always from the owner of cake wine and flowers. Dairy cottage has everything you need for a very nice break hence we have been many times to Doghouse Farm and look forward to many more stays. The area is beautiful and the cottage in a lovely position. Fantastic views of Golden Cap ( the walk up there is worth the effort) . Lots to do in the area something for everyone.

June 2019

We had a lovely stay at The Dairy. It is an ideal place for two and in a really good location. Very close to Lyme Regis and Charmouth and also Bridport and West Bay. A short walk to the local village however we didn't venture to the beach on foot as the weather wasn't ideal. The welcome goodies of wine, flowers, chocs and cake were a lovely touch. Thank you Sue! Once again a lovely holiday accommodation from Classic Cottages.

April 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at The Dairy. The location was ideal, quiet, but within walking distance of the pub, local shop, beach and plenty of walks from the door. The cottage itself was very comfortable and cosy and a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and hope to return one day.

October 2018

everything was fantastic

September 2018

This is a wonderful place to stay, peaceful location, short walk to the beach and pubs, what more do you need? Lovely and would recommend a stay here.

August 2018

We had a wonderful stay at The Dairy last week. This cosy little cottage had everything we required for our week away in Dorset. It was so lovely to receive the lovely touching gifts the owner had left for us, these small things mean a lot. The Dairy is exceptionally clean and comfortable, like home from home. The surrounding area is beautiful and is a perfect location for visiting other areas of Dorset. Its also superbly positioned to walk to the local beach of Seatown, (approx 15 min) we walked every evening to see the sunset at The Anchor inn with a pint or two. The nearest town of Bridport (approx 10 min drive) is a lovely little market town and also just around the corner we had a lovely day at West Bay where Broadchurch was filmed. I would highly recommend The Dairy and would most defiantly stay again if i revisit Dorset.

August 2018

Cottage superb - clean, well equipped, lovely views of Golden Cap; welcome pack amazing (flowers, chocs, wine, cake - fantastic). Sunny patio with shade when needed (+ BBQ to use) It's on a working farm but that was interesting rather than bothersome. Short walk to local pub (good food & service); also walkable to beach (& pub) at Seatown.

June 2018

The Dairy far exceeded our expectations in every way. The cottage is delightly furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need and is in an ideal location for visiting the surrounding area. Close enough to Bridport for shopping but far enough away to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside. The beach is only a 15 minute walk away and leads to many other enjoyable walks - including West Bay and Golden Cap if you 've got the stamina! We also can't fail to mention the lovely surprise welcome gift of a bottle of wine, chocolates and a lemon drizzle cake to 'die for'. We have already booked again for next year.

April 2018

Very comfortable bed, and a great welcome pack.

March 2018

Our third stay at The Dairy but this time for longer so we could enjoy it all the more. Perfect location and setting nestled below the down-land, close to the sea with a west-facing view of Golden Cap. Feel so comfortable in the cottage which is modern but homely. Love everything about this accommodation!

August 2017

We had a thoroughly enjoyable week, we could relax as soon as we arrived. The beautiful scenery, cows in the field, the harvesting equipment coming in and out, perfect. Also plenty of food pubs in the area, we went to a different place each day.

August 2017

Lovely comfortable cottage, which is very well equipped and in a perfect location. Fab additional touches including cake, flowers and wine as a welcome, which was much appreciated. Short stroll to either the village or the beach.

July 2017

An excellent location for anyone wishing to explore the Dorset and Devon coastline. The property is very clean and tidy with excellent views across to Golden Cap.

July 2017

One of the best cottages we've ever stayed, a real home from home. Lovely furnishings, very well equipped, very comfortable and lovely views from the patio area, especially in the beautiful summer evenings. Lovely welcome gift. Great location, easy access to Devon, Somerset and Dorset of course. I can highly recommend this cottage to all. I wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

The cottage is in a lovely location, making it an ideal base to explore Dorset and Devon. Also within easy walking distance of the sea, pubs and shops. The cottage was lovely and clean and very comfortable, and Sue, the owner, left some very thoughtful welcoming gifts. It was lovely to sit on the patio, soaking up the evening sun and listening to the birdsong. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Very warm and friendly cottage, nice touches and within touching distance of some beautiful scenery.

October 2014

We stayed at The Dairy for 1 week. It is absolutely wonderful I didn't want to leave. The cottage is so clean and welcoming and the cake, biscuits, wine, milk and card on arrival was a lovely touch and just what we needed after a long journey. The cottage is full equipped with everything you might possibly need. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and we will definitely be staying here again.

July 2014

This property is perfect for two and has everything that you could possibly need. It's clean, comfortable, homely and located in an excellent position. We certainly got the sense that the proprietor cares about the accommodation and service that she provides, calling around just after we had arrived to make sure everything was okay. I would love to stay again and would not hesitate to recommend this property to my friends.

May 2014

This was our first visit to The Dairy and use of Classic Cottages. We found both cottage and the service were excellent and will definitely visit this cottage and use the service again. Thank you!

April 2014

We have had many holidays booked with Classic Cottages and have enjoyed them all but The Dairy is the only one we have returned to. It is cosy and extremely comfortable, with stunning views and the owner has done all she can to ensure that guests have all that they need.

February 2014

The Dairy has been beautifully converted into a bright, modern yet cosy & comfortable space that's just perfect for two. The west facing French doors onto the garden gave an amazing view of Golden Cap that we could have looked at all day! Really makes the cottage special. Location of the cottage is excellent in that it's just off 'A' road access to elsewhere but is set in the middle of very quiet countryside & feels more remote than it is. It's only half a mile's stroll to the seaside village & pub of Seatown as well as being only a mile's walk to the SW Coast Path & Thorncombe Beacon - fantastic! Hope to visit again soon.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay - it's a beautiful stroll down to the beach as you found, but we thought we'd point out that The Anchor Inn at Seatown is closed for a major refurbishment in early 2014 (they plan to re-open on 16th May 2014) - however, dont' despair as The George Inn is only a quarter of a mile away up in the village.

The dairy is lovely cottage just a short walk to the beach and within easy stroll of great local pub. Out of season the area is nice and quiet, the proximity of holiday park may change this in summer. Very clean with everything we needed and the home made scones on arrival were a real treat.

October 2013

A lovely cottage, everything you need, cream tea on arrival a lovely idea. Will be back but will probably stay in the larger cottage next door, the parlour..all decorated to a high standard, very clean.

October 2013

Great location and view of golden cap.

September 2013

Lovely little cottage in great peaceful location. A few local pubs nearby that do good food. Lots of walks with beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend a stay here (unless you want a wild holiday!)

August 2013

Excellent modern property, fabulous location, ideal for couples, who wish to get away and relax. The property and surroundings are beautifully maintained.

April 2013

My wife and I found the dairy very nice and comfortable with very good local walks to explore.
