Florence Cottage is a Grade II listed cottage in the heart of Bridport; more than 200 years old and renovated to a high standard. It is ideally located in a quiet street a few short steps from the main street shops, restaurants and pubs and a short 5 minute drive or very pleasant 25-minute countryside amble to West Bay beach and harbour. Dogs are welcome.

The space
The cottage sleeps 2 in an extremely comfortable king size bed (luxury cotton bed linen provided). The sunny upstairs bedroom with a characterful original fireplace has ample space for clothes with a wardrobe and large chest of drawers. There is a small television with DVD player, hairdryer and plenty of electric sockets including USB charging points.

The bathroom is off the upstairs landing and has a shower over a deep bath. Towels are provided.

On the ground floor there is open plan beamed living accommodation with lounge/kitchen/dining area and a conservatory room (with washer/dryer, iron and ironing board) leading into a small walled courtyard garden. The well-equipped fitted kitchen includes a fridge with small freezer compartment, oven, hob and microwave with plenty of saucepans etc. to cook a full meal if you wish. The lounge area has a cast iron gas fire/stove for snuggly winter evenings, along with a smart TV with DVD, internet/Wi-Fi, USB charging points and a comfy space at the dining table for laptop use. The cottage is central heated throughout.

The conservatory and garden can be used for bike storage and a picnic set is available for you to take out with you when you go exploring.

Local books and maps are supplied for you to use during your stay.

Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are provided so you can have a cuppa upon arrival before venturing out to the supermarket.

Guest access
Guests will have exclusive use of the whole cottage. Access is via key safe.

Other things to note
As is common in these old cottages, the stairs are quite steep - care should be taken and the property may not be suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs. Please make contact if you want any more information.

Cleaning fee and linen/towels included within the price.

Location

Dorset, England, United Kingdom

Bridport is a bustling market town which has lots going on and an abundance of history to discover. Markets are held every Wednesday and Saturday and there are many festivals and events throughout the year and lots of places to eat, drink and socialise. There is a lively arts scene with a creative vibe - theatre, cinema, music, art displays and exhibitions – and an eclectic collection of vintage/retro/antique/collectable traders. The town centre is a mix of the usual high street stores and independent shops and cafes. West Bay (aka Bridport Harbour and location of TV's Broadchurch) is a short 5 minute drive away (1.5 miles) – or a very pleasant 25-minute stroll – where you’ll find the quaint harbour and stretches of Chesil Beach (“the Gateway to the Jurassic Coast”) along with pubs, restaurants, diners, tea rooms and an array of fish and chip huts and ice-cream vendors.
It is a perfect base for exploring - west to Golden Cap, Charmouth and Lyme Regis and east towards Weymouth and inland Dorcester and Thomas Hardy's Wessex. There are stunning landscapes and fabulous views. Walkers - you are in for a treat!
Bridport makes for a wonderful town, coast and countryside holiday or short break.
