Badgers Cottage, a snug semi-detached cottage for two, is set in a farmyard, beautifully converted from an 18th Century stone barn. All on one level, the open plan design is light and airy, extending a warm welcome, with a cosy wood-burner for cooler evenings. The very stylish deVOL kitchen is a cook's delight; well-equipped with a ceramic hob and double oven, all that you need to create a delicious holiday supper. If you're looking for culinary inspiration, there are two excellent farm shops in the area; Washingpool Farm Shop, just north of Bridport or the award-winning Felicity's Farm Shop at Morecombelake. The super-comfy 6' bed has the flexibility to be made up as a double or two singles and the compact shower room has a heated towel rail. The fenced garden provides a very tranquil space for dining al fresco, taking in the country air, fabulous views and keeps your dog safely enclosed and able to relax with you. Barn Owl's Cottage, which sleeps six, is just next door, so for a family holiday you can book both together. The delightful owners are nearby if you need any advice about local places to visit.
