    “Lovely cottage in a great position, loads of space.”

    Our autistic adult son loved it, the view of the sea and the garden and the quiet position. The connected shower room was useful for me to help him when required with personal care. It was a shame we had to leave early on the Tuesday instead of the Friday as he had decided beforehand that he only wanted to go for a long weekend due to ongoing worries about the pandemic, amongst other reasons he couldn’t explain (Autistic logic!) as last year’s cottage holiday had to be cancelled. We did not change the booking as we thought he might change his mind. The only thing was that the double bed was not comfortable for us, and thought a bigger hotel size bed would still fit in that room. We are used to a King size bed and the restless sleeper stopped the partner sleeping too as the bed was so springy and small. Also the sinks in the shower room and bathroom are very small. My son’s big hands filled it up and he had difficulty using it for washing when not showering. It was great to have the extra space and chairs in the lobby area and choice to spend time away from lounge area, and also the seating in the garden. We had a lovely time and would go again, except my autistic son likes to go to a different cottage every year. I would definitely recommend this people especially with disabled relatives or friends.

The property

Mimosa Cottage located in the Dorset Coastal village of West Bexington, has wonderful views of the World Heritage site Jurassic Coast as well as the rolling hills and patchwork fields of West Dorset.

The cottage is a part of a complex of three holiday cottages with gardens surrounding them all.

Mimosa Cottage is an ideal holiday home for a disabled person and carer and is very well laid out.

It is equally good for any able-bodied family or couple. Guests staying at Mimosa will benefit from wheelchair friendly accommodation with spacious rooms all on one level, including an accessible wet room, conservatory and separate chill out room.

A patio area with tables and chairs is the perfect place to enjoy an alfresco lunch in the sunshine whilst surveying the wonderful views.

Surrounding Mimosa are gardens for you to explore, pockets of lawn are interspersed with paths and an orchard.

You are more than welcome to help yourself to apples and pears in the season.

Take a short walk across the field and you will reach Chesil Beach.

Admire thousands of wintering birds on the Fleet or spot usual Dorset wildlife through binoculars.

If you are ready for more energetic walks, you can head to the beautiful village of Abbotsbury situated a few miles towards the Isle of Portland.

Abbotsbury’s Abbey and Mute Swans Sanctuary & Sub-tropical gardens will make a great day out for everyone in the party to enjoy from children to elderly. A little tea room is within walking distance from the cottage following the path across the field, ideal for a cup of tea after a hearty walk.

There is a farm shop nearby, a supermarket and many other shops are a short drive away in Bridport. Mimosa is the perfect location to relax off the beaten track to the sounds of birds rather than sitting in traffic. Come and enjoy time away from your busy life at Mimosa Cottage.

About the location

WEST BEXINGTON

Abbotsbury 3 miles; Bridport 6 miles.

Lying next to the sea and Chesil Beach, equidistant between Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury, is the small village of West Bexington. This is a stunning area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as an area of Special Scientific Interest - pebbled Chesil Beach, which extends for 14 miles, from Burton Bradstock to the Portland peninsula, is part of the Jurassic Coast and now a World Heritage Site. Fishermen and walkers are well provided for, as a great variety of fish can be caught at any time of year, and the South West Coastal Path runs right alongside the beach. Only confident swimmers should attept to swim here, but Weymouth, offering lovely, gently shelving sands, is only a short drive away. There's lots to see and do within easy reach of the village. No journey to this area would be complete without a visit to picturesque Abbotsbury, 3 miles, with its Swannery, Tithe Barn and Sub Tropical Gardens, with Dorchester, Bridport, and Lyme Regis all within easy reach.

Note: max 4 people.
Note: guests need to bring their own cot linen.
Note: The Fossil and The Cross 994206, Whispering Pines 994791 and Mimosa Cottage are surrounded by lovely gardens. Whilst each cottage has a distinct and separate area for their use, these gardens are not enclosed and are on different levels, so children should be supervised.
Note: mobile reception is poor in this area.
Note: cottage is suitable for disabled person and carer.
Note: the cottage is accessed via a partially unmade road.
