Guestbook comments from the owner

"Lovely cosy cottage"

It was unseasonally cold but Minnies cottage was lovely and cosy. We went for walks on the beach and really enjoyed sampling the home-made cakes of the Hive cafe.

The cottage came really well equipped and the chocolates and milk in the fridge were really appreciated. Definitely would stay again.



"A great base to explore Dorset, nice village and close to the coast."

Minnies is a cosy cottage in a very pretty village.



"A gem in the midst of an idyllic location"

The pictures provided do not do this cottage justice. It is located on a beautiful, quiet street lined with flower covered thatched cottages in Burton Bradstock. The lower level of the cottage is small, but very well equipped with clean utensils...and even a dishwasher. The back garden is lovely, and we enjoyed many morning coffees here as well as an evening meal, when we were not eating in the nearby pubs.

Perfect stay

Minnie's is a lovely cottage in a beautiful, quiet Dorset village. Ideal for walkers: not only is the coastal path on your doorstep, but several countryside walks can be done as well. Village has frequent bus, two pubs, and shop with local produce. Cottage comes with all you need for a perfect stay!
