    “Lovely property and overall we enjoyed staying here.”

    The cleaning standards would not win any prizes in terms of dusting and removal of pet hairs from previous occupants (we do not have a pet). Some compromises you would make because of the age of the property, but of concern were the condition and security of some of the window frames, the absence of a hand rail on the stairs and the protruding floorboard nail heads in the bedroom where there is a high chance of bare feet finding them. The garden furniture listed in the instructions possibly ...

    The cleaning standards would not win any prizes in terms of dusting and removal of pet hairs from previous occupants (we do not have a pet). Some compromises you would make because of the age of the property, but of concern were the condition and security of some of the window frames, the absence of a hand rail on the stairs and the protruding floorboard nail heads in the bedroom where there is a high chance of bare feet finding them. The garden furniture listed in the instructions possibly referred to an old shed no longer accessible because of the ivy growth. The cottage was very spacious and very comfortable.

About the location

WHITCHURCH CANONICORUM

Bridport 5.4 miles.

Referred to as the capital of the Marshwood Vale, Whitchurch Canonicorum is an attractive mix of farms and cottages. Whitchurch Canonicorum is where you can find the very ancient church of St. Candida and the Holy Cross. It is unique in being the only parish church in England to contain the remains of an ancient saint. There is a well nearby, also named after the Saint, which is also rumoured to have similar healing properties. The attractive market town of Bridport grew up around the River Brit and was shaped by its extensive history of rope and net making. The long, wide streets and alleyways between the houses were once where the flax strands were twisted into rope, while today those streets are filled with an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns.

Note: Those with younger children should be aware of the garden stream, supervision may be required.
