The property is located in a lovely village in the rolling Dorset countryside and it is only 4 miles from the Jurassic coast, one of the world's heritage sites. The beach at Burton Bradstock 4 miles away has a celebrated cafe / restaurant and and is one of the most stunning beaches in Britain.
There are beautiful walks from the house and the village has a good local pub with good food. The market town of Bridport is 2 miles away, with two weekly markets (Wed and Sat), and monthly famer's and antique markets. Bridport is also a fishing port, for many years the main producer of ropes in the country. It has a thriving arts scene and lots going on.
There are several good pubs and restaurants in the area, including the River Cottage Canteen and Food Stores run by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in Axminster and two great seafood restaurants, the Riverside in West Bay and the newly opened Hix Oyster and Fish House in Lyme Regis.
There are two notable hill forts around Bridport. Eggardon Hill Fort dates from the Iron Age and is extremely atmospheric and boasts wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. The other hill fort is Pilsdon Pen, also from the Iron Age and one of the highest points in the county at over 900 feet.
