A charming stone fronted 2 bedroom cottage with delightful south facing garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 20-Nov-2016

NEW FOR 2017 SEASON - Following the new bathroom installation last year, we are pleased to confirm that Dormouse Cottage will benefit from the following improvements for next season: New Kitchen, New Sofas, Bose Stereo and redecoration. Pictures will be updated as soon as works are complete.

Dormouse Cottage is a delightful and beautifully proportioned stone cottage located in the sleepy Dorset village of Loders, with its welcoming pub, church and pretty stone built thatched cottages giving the visitor a taste of traditional English village life, now fast disappearing. Recently renovated the cottage is practical and welcoming with a cosy but spacious lounge with woodburner, separate dining area, two bedrooms and a glorious sunny garden with views of the popular walker’s haven of Boarsbarrow Hill and a patio perfect for some al fresco dining. The county of Dorset is renowned for its picturesque villages, soft rolling countryside and Jurassic coastline and there is plenty to entertain the visitor. These include trips to the many beaches along the Heritage Coast, fossil hunting at Charmouth, a day out at the stunning beach at West Bay, visiting the delightful seaside town of Lyme Regis or meandering through the streets in bustling market town of Dorchester.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dormouse cottage is situated a few minutes drive from Bridport in a quiet village called Loders. We stayed at the end of July and had an enjoyable week exploring Dorset. We found the cottage to be very homely and well equipped, with a comfortable living room with a log burner which we used on a couple of chilly evenings. The cottage had a nice modern bathroom with a powerful shower and comfortable bedrooms. The garden was also a bonus as it was south facing and we ate our evening meals outside in the sun. There is a country pub a few minutes walk which has nice ales and food, supermarkets and shops are a short drive away. We found the cottage to be ideally situated with an easy drive to Lyme Regis, Charmouth, West Bay, and Weymouth. We would recommend this cottage and look forward to returning in the future

A very clean and comfortable cottage in a lovely village

  • 4 of 5

We made good use of the excellent facilities with barbecue and enclosed rear garden for the dog also the local pub was only a 200 yards away when we fancied eating out. This proved a good base to explore this part of Dorset and all helped to make it an enjoyable holiday.

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here at the end of August. The village of Loders is very quiet and peaceful. The local pub was about 20 paces away.

There are lots of good activities/places to visit within a 30 minute drive. We spent most of our time playing on the beaches at Charmouth looking for fossils.

In the evening it was nice to come back and sit in the pretty little garden and have a bbq and enjoy some wine in the evening sun. Our 2 year old enjoyed finding all the little decorative creature statues around the garden, and was convinced there was a fairy house down by the bottom fence.

A lovely cottage in an ideal setting

  • 5 of 5

Dormouse cottage was a great find and a brilliant base for discovering the Dorset coast. We could not fault the cottage; it was clean, homely and well equipped. The village of Loders is very pretty and we enjoyed a great meal at the pub. We would definitely recommend it.

Nice and cosy Cottage in a typical small Dorset Village.

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is nice as well as the sorrounding area. West Bay and Seatown cliffs and beaches can be reached with a 10 minutes drive. The house is well mantained and its facilities complete for a Family stay.

We had a beutiful weather trough the whole week, enjoing the table in the outdoor area to have dinner.

Contact with the owners via e-mail and sms always prompt and with clear information.

I would definetly suggest to friends to visit the region and enjoy the stay in this Cottage.

The sunset and the moonlight at Seatown beach something to remember.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean and beautifully presented cottage with a lovely garden in a small Dorset village. Very well equipped with all you need. I loved the very stylish bathroom and the very comfy lounge. Lots to do close by. We enjoyed coastal walks with our dog, relaxing in the garden, morning coffee and watching the world go by in Bridport. We visited the Donkey Sanctuary, Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis all less than an hour away. The Loders Arms in Loders village is friendly and welcoming with good food. We haven't stayed in Dorset before but we loved the rolling green hills, beautiful coast and thatched cottages. We would love to return to Dormouse Cottage.
