The property

Tucked away in the picture-postcard village of Burton Bradstock in Dorset lies the Grade II listed Cornflower Cottage.

In an Area of Outstanding Beauty, this historic thatched cottage is on the Jurassic Coast and offers a family or group of seven a range of self-catering amenities, a large garden space, and family-friendly accommodation.

Make yourself at home in this delightful abode, where a spacious sitting room greets you with exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace, window seats and large sofas.

A bright dining room and fully equipped kitchen provide a pleasant space for socialising and preparing hearty meals.

On warmer days, make the most of the large, private garden where your dog is sure to love snoozing in the sunshine; you'll find secluded, outdoor seating to relax with a cup of tea and catch up with your loved ones.

Back inside, the ground-floor shower room is ideal for freshening up after beach days, whilst upstairs another large bathroom awaits with a bath and lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

When it's time to retire, choose between two king-size or three single beds, each thoughtfully appointed for contemporary guests, whilst retaining much of the cottage's original character.

Start your day by exploring Burton Bradstock, a picturesque village home to The Three Horseshoes and The Anchor pub, local convenience store, playground and petrol garage.

Hive Beach and Cafe is a short walk through the fields, with both Bredy Pizza Parlour and West Bexington’s Club House a short drive away.

The coastal villages of Abbotsbury, Swyre and Portesham are host to many wonderful restaurants and pubs, with access to the National Trust world-famous Chesil Beach.

Going west, the seaside towns of West Bay, Eype, Seatown and Charmouth provide a variety of excellent seafood restaurants, farm shops, beautiful beaches and coastal walks.

Just beyond Bridport is the iconic Colmer’s Hill within Symondsbury Estate, also home to several homeware stores, a delightful café and some of the best views across the South-West.
