There is a very popular local pub (The Crown Inn) about 5 minutes walk down the village road which has excellent reviews, don’t forget to bring a torch for your return walk home! There are of course many other restaurants, pubs, cafes and bistros, all within a short drive. However you choose to enjoy your stay at Sweetbriar Cottage, it is the perfect Dorset holiday location for families or couples wanting a quiet and relaxing place to stay.

The property:
Sweetbriar Cottage is a delightful stables conversion, blending contemporary style & modern convenience with character & charm. The quiet and peaceful location provides the perfect place to stay, both for couples or families wishing to explore Dorset and be within a short drive to local beaches. The property was converted in 2013/14 so has been built to the latest standards, which provides for a very warm and cosy environment.

The open plan living area has a double height ceiling and Oak beams providing a spacious and airy feel with bags of character and charm, perfect for socialising and relaxing.

There is a stunning and unusual galleried first floor bedroom with a double bed overlooks the sitting area (which also has discreet screens providing privacy when required). The bedroom has a feature bath behind the bed separated by glass screens as well as separate shower, basin WC and large inbuilt wardrobe and storage area.

Downstairs there is a further bedroom with two single beds and an en-suite bathroom with a bath/shower and toilet (this can also be accessed from the living area through a lockable ‘Jack & Jill door).

Enjoy the peaceful location and spend the afternoon in the garden with its own Summerhouse and a range of outdoor seating options. In winter months you may want to make yourself comfortable by the feature fire. Sweetbriar is the perfect base to explore West Dorset, you may like to visit the market town of Bridport filled with individual shops and fresh produce and a very popular and busy Saturday market.

Venture South and you will find beautiful coastal village of Burton Bradstock with it’s charming thatched cottages. A visit to West Bay with its lively harbour, or a short trip further west to the very picturesque and historic Lyme Regis and the surrounding, stunning golden cliffs is a must.

You can easily spend the day on the fabulous local beaches, have a swim in a sea or take a cliff top walk towards Charmouth to the west or Abbotsbury to the east. On a clear day from cliffs close to West Bay, you can see the entire ‘sweep of Lyme Bay’ from the Isle of Portland around to Start Point in Devon.

Sweetbriar Cottage is the perfect holiday location to explore Dorset and have a wonderful holiday for adults and children alike.

About Dorset (Uploders)

The vibrant Saxon market town of Bridport, with its Georgian buildings and 13th-century church, is sometimes described as "Notting Hill on Sea" and has set the scene for several TV programmes, including River Cottage and Broadchurch.

The fantastic monthly farmers' markets are a tradition stretching back centuries, showcasing the best of local, often organic, produce. But if you don't catch one of these you can still go along to one of the twice-weekly street markets, and pick yourself up a distinctive Bridport Market bag as a souvenir.

There is a thriving art scene in Bridport, and the newly restored art-deco Electric Palace theatre, with its celebrity patron list and well-known local chef, is a wonderful way to spend an evening, as are the many delightful restaurants and pubs (try the acclaimed Riverside Restaurant in West Bay for gorgeous seafood).

Once famous for its rope-making (including the hangman's rope, giving rise to the phrase "stabbed by a Bridport dagger"!), the town is rich in history, and this can be explored at both the Bridport Museum and the Local History Centre.

There is plenty happening in this bustling town, with the Literary Festival (attracting many renowned writers), the Food Festival, the Round Table Beer Festival and the RNLI Raft Race (in the basin of the River Brit) to name just a few. And the August Carnival, which includes a fun-fair, torchlight procession and live music, is a family event not to be missed.

Bridport was originally a fishing town, and the Harbour at West Bay (one mile away) was originally called Bridport Harbour, but was renamed in the 19th century. Like most of the Jurassic Coast, West Bay is popular with fossil hunters because of its loose clay cliffs, and is sited on the pretty, pebbly Chesil Beach, an 18-mile stretch which is separated from the mainland for much of its length by the Fleet Lagoon. Here you will find walks and scenery in abundance to satisfy the most adventurous visitors.
