About the property

Cottage in Burton Bradstock, Nr. Bridport, Dorset, England - The Cottage Is Located In A Quiet Cul-de-sac, Just 10 Minutes Walk From Chesil Beach

Minnies is a 17th Century Thatched cottage in a quiet cul-de-sac at the heart of the attractive village of Burton Bradstock. Burton Bradstock is 2.5 miles from Bridport on the route to Weymouth and central to the Jurassic Coast, World Heritage Site one of the most beautiful areas of the south west, with outstanding scenery in all directions along the coast and moving inland. Within a reasonable radius there are a number of places of natural or historical interest, as well as many family attractions.Bridport is a charming market town with a range of shops and eating places. The market on Saturday is a great place to stock up with holiday supplies. Bridport also has a leisure centre with swimming facilities catering for all ages. Close by at West Bay is an eighteen hole links golf course that welcomes visitors. Burton Bradstock has a Post Office that also provides a range of locally sourced food items and there is also a small Spar supermarket at the garage. The village has two pubs with extensive menus including home cooked meals and locally sourced ingredients. There is also a children’s play park located in the village. Minnies is 10 minutes walk through the fields to Chesil Beach, and the acclaimed Hive Cafe. The beach and adjacent foreshore are clean and unspoilt and easily reached with a car park. The cottage has been fully refurbished with modern services and comfortably sleeps 4. Downstairs is open plan with the kitchen separated from the dining/sitting area by a marble topped bar. The cottage has its own wholly enclosed garden with lawn and patio facing south and it is quite secure for young children. Parking is on the street, close to the cottage. Unfortunately we are not able to accept dogs.

About Simon

My wife and I live in Oxfordshire with our two sons and disobedient Labrador.

Simon purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Simon chose Dorset

We were introduced to West Dorset almost by accident but love walking across the cliffs or along the beach. Bridport has a wide, vibrant and eclectic cultural mix of events, exhibitions and entertainment. It is also a Gateway Town for the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast.

What makes this cottage unique

Minnie's is a beautiful cottage in a very peaceful village, and the short walk to the beach and the Hive Cafe make it the perfect spot for a relaxing break.

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.

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!
