    “The main problem we had was the garden.”

    It does not state clearly in the description that the garden is away from the property and is accessed by a courtyard of the adjacent property, meaning we were unable to leave our dog in the garden. If this had been mentioned in the description of this property we would never have booked it. We did in fact read someone else's comments about this and tried to change the booking but were unable to find a suitable alternative.

We did in fact read someone else's comments about this and tried to change the booking but were unable to find a suitable alternative. This really does need to be mentioned in the description as people with dogs could find it unsuitable. The other problem we found is that there are in fact 3 bedrooms and only one single wardrobe for 5 people! We ended up having to hang our clothes over door knobs and doors. Not really a suitable arrangement for a weeks holiday.

    Very sorry for your disappointment. However the details on the website clearly state that the garden is accessed across the courtyard and the photos were chosen to ensure there was no confusion. We were confused as to your complaint regarding the cottage not being suitable for 5 people when the cottage only sleeps 4. Property Owner

The property

A delightful three bedroom thatched cottage in the pretty coastal village of Burton Bradstock.

River Cottage has an enclosed garden (accessed via a shared courtyard and is approximately 15 -20 metres to the rear of the property).

Off road parking for two cars and pets are welcome.

The property is filled with character, the sitting room is the perfect place to spend a winter evening snuggled up with a book and a glass of wine.

The cottage garden has a magical feel that will invite you to explore or just spend time sitting enjoying the fresh air.

Just a short stroll away is Hive Beach and here you can taste local produce at the Hive Beach café that overlooks the pebbled beach.

There is also a shop and two pubs that offer good food.

A few miles away is the pretty harbour of West Bay, why not enjoy good old fashioned seaside fare of fish and chips whilst sitting by the harbour?

Also, why not travel to the market town of Bridport which has many good shops and also a weekly market.

Situated on the main road through the village, the access to the property is via the back door of the Cottage.

The village location of Burton Bradstock and the beautiful thatched River Cottage is the perfect place to spend a magical holiday.
