Overview

About the property

Cottage in Bridport, Dorset, England - Situated In A Quiet No Through Road, Impossible To Believe It Is Only 2mins Walk To The Main Street

Very quietly situated, stone built terraced cottage, 5 mins walk to buzzing Bucky Doo Sq where there is live music on most Saturday market days. Bridport is situated on the River Brit and was originally a port and known for its rope and net making. Many of the alleyways and twittens originate because of the need to lay out the rope and nets. Only 1.5m from stunning Jurassic coast and West Bay (location of Broadchurch). You may bump into local celebrities (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Martin Clunes, PJHarvey, Billy Bragg and others) plus London celebs who come to support events at the Electric Palace, where groups regularly play in the revived Art Deco cinema, there is also the Arts Centre with an eclectic range of art exhibitions, films and entertainment. Annual events include Food & Beer Festival, Literary Festival, Hat Festival & Open Art Studio week. Bridport has become a centre for 'foodies' in the South West and has in recent years been labelled 'Notting Hill on Sea' by a national newspaper.

About Neil & Penny Thomas

No 29 Barrack Street has been in our family for very many years and has been lived in by various members of the family at different stages of their lives, usually when bringing up small children. Several still live and work in the area - having graduated to larger detached houses to accommodate their growing children! - we are therefore familiar with all the local eateries, best places to visit and willing to pass on any local information.

What makes this cottage unique

The proximity to Bridport's main shopping street and all the different eating places whilst enjoying the quiet road and tranquil garden setting makes this a place to remember.
