This quaint cottage is nestled in a beautiful village in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is less than a mile from the magnificent Jurassic Coast.

Situated in the small village of Eype. this lovely semi-detached cottage is conveniently set back from the lane that leads down to the beach. The property backs onto the local pub but is not overlooked in any way. As it is so conveniently placed for the beach, it is a dog walker’s paradise. Take in some of the local coastal walks or let your four-legged friend frolic on the beach and take a dip in the water. The property is located only 2 miles from the town of Bridport where you can have a stroll around the harbour and witness the colourful fishing boats and daily work of the fishermen, or relax in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by.

Entrance to the accommodation is through the well-appointed kitchen/dining room in which you will notice a host of lovely features such as the solid oak breakfast bar and feature fireplace in the dining end of the room. There is a small step down into the dining room. On entering the hallway, there is a door leading to the garden and a cosy lounge with an open fire and a pretty window seat which overlooks the beautiful surroundings. The room has windows on two aspects so is very light and airy. In the upstairs of the property (reached via a stairgate), there are two double bedrooms which feature original wooden flooring to both; and the master bedroom also has its own en-suite shower bathroom and Victorian fireplace adding a period touch. The master bedroom has double aspect windows which, again, look out over the picturesque valley. The bathroom has a bath with power shower overhead, WC and sink.

The semi-detached cottage is accessed via a shared path and has a tranquil gravelled courtyard garden located to the front surrounded by flowers and shrubbery. The raised seating area at the end of the courtyard offers beautiful views of the valley; as well as these views being appreciated from the large rear unenclosed decked area. Off-road parking for one car is situated just off the rear decked area.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Wayside Cottage was a real home from home, it had all the equipment you could need plus more. It was comfy and clean. The decking was lovely to sit out on and enjoy the views. Lovely quiet location, 15 min walk to the beach.

The pub next door was very welcoming. The cottage is Ok but it could be cleaner. Parking outside the property was difficult for our large car. But apart from that the cottage has everything you need for a short break.

We stayed at Wayside cottage in August, it was a very cosy and well equipped. The location is great for walks to the sea and has a pub close by too. In summary its a great place to get away from it all with super views of the countryside.

Ten out of ten! A lovely old cottage - very tastefully and attractively decorated and furnished - very peaceful as tucked away from the road - and stunning views to the back especially. Beautifully placed for walks and sea - though narrow lane down to beach must be a bit challenging in the summer! (And there really is only parking for one car.) Read more We had a very happy time.

Lovely, cosy cottage. The furnishings give it a very welcoming feel and everything we needed was laid on. The open fire is a particularly nice touch. The decking area is an excellent addition and allowed us to fully appreciate the beautiful location. The cottage was excellently situated for easy access along the Devon and Dorset coasts. The one minRead moreor improvement could be the amount of water available to the bath, which the tank only part filled. However, this did not lessen our enjoyment at all. Hide
