Overview

About the property

Farmhouse in Burton Bradstock, nr. Bridport, Dorset, England - Listed Farmhouse Village Setting And Only A Few Minutes Walk To The Beach.

A farmhouse full of character and intriguing history. Downstairs there are high ceilings and some impressive 16th century carved beams, as well as a Tudor fireplace upstairs, suggesting this was once part of a much grander building of high status. It has been recently renovated to provide a comfortable home, whilst retaining a farmyard feel. We keep our own hens and if they are laying you will be welcomed with some of their tasty eggs. It has the benefit of being right in the village, yet with lots of space and a short walk to the beach or stunning countryside. There are two pubs, a post office and store in the village.

Why Robert Browse chose Dorset

The owners have had a cottage in Burton Bradstock for the last 10 years. They bought Shadrack Dairy Farm in April 2011. It had been empty for over 12 years and became a labour of love to return it to its former glory and restore its place in the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have visited Burton Bradstock many times and this is, by far, the best property we’ve stayed in over the years. Very well equipped with comfortable and tasteful furnishings throughout. Great to find such a lovely cottage which is both child and dog friendly. We will definitely stay here again. Sept 2011.



Shadrack Dairy Farm is a truly special place to stay. We had a wonderful family holiday and wouldn’t change a thing. The cottage is full of character, has plenty of room and is very well equipped. It is beautifully decorated and furnished, being luxurious yet homely. Situated in a friendly village, Shadrack is only a 10 minute walk to the local beach. Hive beach is fantastic, the kids loved it. We visited a few other beaches along the coast but thought that Hive was the best. We couldn’t have been more delighted when we arrived at Shadrack, and didn’t want to leave. We have lots of special memories and would love to return for another family holiday. July 2011.

Fantastic cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week in the Farmhouse. It's extremely well equipped and enjoys a great location which our whole family loved (5 adults & 1 infant).

Mark and Robbie are brilliant hosts and gave us several excellent tips on where to visit and places to eat. We particularly liked the Seaside Boarding House and the Anchor, both of which are within easy walking distance - even for the Grandparents!

I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Shadrack and hope our family can visit again soon!

Very comfortable farmhouse in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was extremely enjoyable - the farmhouse is full of character and very comfortable. My family came over from France and was very pleased: the farm is a fantastic place to gather as a family and there are many places to explore (walking distance to the beach, excellent and atmospheric market in Bridport, etc.). Mark and Robbie are the best hosts and I highly recommend the place - a gem in Dorset!

Beautiful setting and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Burton Bradstock is a beautiful village on the Dorset coast with 2 pubs and a delightul village shop. Shadrack Dairy is perfectly positioned close to everything but on a quiet street away from passing traffic. The cottage is very comfortable with great beds and mattresses and 100% cotton bed linen (a must for me). The kitchen is small but well equiped and the Aga is great, although I understand this is not on over the summer. There is a courtyard area attached to the house and a lawned area a little away, with a stream at the bottom. The owners, Mark and Robbie live close by and were very helpful, we know the area so didn't need much advice but I am sure they would oblige if you needed it. They were also hugely helpful returning all the items we managed to leave there, oops!!! All in all a lovely place for a seaside holiday.

Outstanding! Simply the best....

  • 5 of 5

We arrived last Friday and returned home last night....Boo HOO! Leaving the farmhouse after a wonderful week, the sun shone from early until dusk which meant that my adult children and I could enjoy all that the area has to offer. Beautiful country walks, dog friendly pubs, beaches and water sports but above all we enjoyed just chilling around the house. There was plenty of room for us all to get together in the lounge or conservatory but we spent happy hours around the large table in the garden area & orchard. Mark & Robbie are truly nice people, ready to help whenever, and made us very welcome. The house was immaculate and very comfortable furnished, in keeping with the age of the property. It was so refreshing to have everything to hand in the kitchen....home from home. I really couldn't have wished for a better place to enjoy our family holiday in Beautiful Dorset. We will be back!

Lovely character property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely character property, with excellent facilities, in a picturesque village, within easy walking distance of two pubs serving very good food and about 10 minutes walk to the beach. It is the best holiday let we have stayed in in the UK.

Robbie and Mark are kind and friendly hosts and on hand for anything needed and local advice.

Would love to return in the future. G
