Very well equipped cosy 2 Bedroom cottage with shop and pubs nearby
Ash Cottage is situated in the midst of very quiet and peaceful farmland and has a large communal lawn edged by a pretty stream and breathtaking views over rolling Dorset hills. There are French windows in the lounge opening onto a small private south-facing patio and the communal lawn. It is just a short stroll through the fields to the beach and the Anchor Pub at Seatown. With the Coastal Path on it's doorstep, it is a paradise for walkers!
The cottage has 2 bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the other with a double and a single bed. A new kitchen and bathroom have been installed in the last 3 years.
Heating is from storage heaters. Electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, colour TV, video, DVD, CD player/radio etc. Travel cot and high chair are provided.

Fantastic Cottage. Family of 4 stayed her 2nd week of our kids holiday. Visited lots of places and even got sunshine on half the days !.

Walk other way is 15 mins across the Fields to the Anchor on the Sea front. Nice amble and again nice ( limited a bit for kids ) Food and ambience. Can get busy, msut be ever so in Summer. Really enjoyed our stay. Definitely recommended !!!
Comfortable and welcoming
Thankyou to Isabel for providing a very comfortable cottage for us. Everything was supplied to make sure our stay was easy including a very nice bottle of wine. The location is perfect for the western end of Dorset especially Lyme Regis, a very nice town at the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Loved it. By the way, try The Anchor Inn at Burton Bradstock. The food is wonderful!
Beautiful Cottage In An Idyllic Location
Ash Cottage is absolutely lovely and the layout was perfect for us with a small child and a dog. There was plenty of space and it was so well equipped, everything that we could possibly have wanted was there.
The location is perfect with three beaches being incredibly close by and two super pubs nearby. One we walked to and The Anchor we drove to as we had a toddler with us and didn't fancy carrying him across the fields! Both were very welcoming and we had lovely meals at both.
Don't be deceived as Ash Cottage looks quite little from the front but it is very spacious and we were in no way cramped, quite the opposite. The views of rolling fields and the quiet surroundings were perfect. The lovely bottle of wine in the fridge was a super touch, thank you, we will be back!
A lovely place to explore the surrounding coast!
2nd visit to Ash Cottage
This was the 2nd time we had stayed at Ash Cottage and the fact that we had chosen to return speaks for itself!
The cottage has everything you could need for a summer break, comfortable lounge area, nice sized shared garden for the kids to play in, two decent sized bedrooms (one with a double and single which worked perfectly for our 3 kids to share) and a kitchen that included everything you need to rustle up dinner on the nights you don't fancy going out.
The location is very good, there are two local pubs within walking distance that both serve good food, one up in the village of Chideock and the other right on the beach at Seatown, both came recommended and we can also recommend both!
We will almost certainly return again at some point!
Comfortable and spacious Holiday Cottage
The cottage was quite deceptive in that from the front it looked rather small; however, once inside there were two good sized bedrooms, a fully equipped bathroom and a kitchen/diner/lounge which opened onto a grassy area at the back of the property. It is a quiet location being down a farm track from the busy A35. A good place to stay and only a few minutes from the supermarket at Bridport. Would recommend this location to anyone wanting a quiet spot close to the sea (unfortunately, the sea is not in view from the cottage). It was clean and quite comfortable with external table and chairs on a small patio. Has freeview TV and a selection of DVDs and VHS tapes though why the TV needed two remotes is a bit of a mystery. Full-sized dishwasher and cooker hob with fridge freezer worked well. Oven kept defaulting to timed mode and without any instructions was difficult to get working. Water pressure in the bathroom is poor although the pressure in the kitchen is strong. Thankfully shower is electric power shower so unaffected by the slow flow of the bathroom tap. All in all a very nice place to stay and well worth the price.
Ash Cottage Chideock Dorset
We have just spent a lovely week at Ash Cottage. The location was perfect and the views were breathtaking.
The cottage was very clean and well-maintained, a real Bonus. The owner and the manager of the property were very accommodating and friendly.
There are restaurants and pubs for meals etc in the area so you don't have to go far. Bridport and West Bay should be visited.
I certainly would recommend the property to my friends and relatives and can't wait to return.
Activity and Interests
Dorset is an area of unspoilt charm, outstanding natural beauty, sleepy villages and bustling market towns and dramatic coastlines all waiting to be explored. The whole 25miles of West Dorset's magnificent coastline forms part of Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, designated by UNESCO for its outstanding geology. Along the beaches between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, fossils are being continuously found as the cliffs erode. You can join a guided fossil-hunting walk from the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre by Charmouth beach.
There is so much to do in this part of Dorset including Lyme Regis (made famous by the film The French Lieutenant’s Woman) which has a Jazz Festival (May), Lifeboat Week (July), and Carnival (August), Abbotsbury Swannery & Gardens, Athelhampton House & Gardens, and Monkey World just to mention a few! You can even take a day trip to Jersey or Guernsey from Weymouth!
