This sunny south-facing cottage enjoys a quiet rural position on the edge of the beautiful village of Netherbury, a short drive from the beaches and cliffs of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast near Bridport. Semi-detached with a large enclosed level garden it is comfortable, welcoming and, with a wood-burner in the sitting-room, ideal for cosy out-of-season breaks. The patio has unspoilt countryside views, the light and spacious bedrooms also enjoying the rural outlook. The cottage is a short walk from a friendly local pub, and a network of footpaths lead into historic Beaminster with its traditional square, shops and restaurants. This is a great base for walkers exploring the Wessex Ridgeway or for cyclists, the cycle routes of west Dorset.
Meadowbank is in a great location for exploring west Dorset. Dorchester, the county town of Dorset and home to Thomas Hardy, is only a 30 minute drive; children will love the Dinosaur Museum, where they can see fossils and dinosaur skeletons. Take the Jurassic Coast road between West Bay and Weymouth for magnificent views in both directions, but be sure to stop at Burton Bradstock, where you will find the Hive Beach Cafe and the Seaside Boarding House, both serving fabulous locally caught seafood. Lyme Regis is an easy day trip, where you can spend the day searching for fossils or the best ice cream in Dorset.
