    “A lovely cottage with everything you could wish for in the way of facilities and the owners were more that helpful every time we had occasion to talk to them.”

    It has two good sized double bedrooms plus one with bunk beds that would suit a couple of kids provided that they haven't gotten to large. ...

    It has two good sized double bedrooms plus one with bunk beds that would suit a couple of kids provided that they haven't gotten to large. The shower is excellent and the bath is very modern albeit we didn't use it. Essentially the bath room is a wet room Puncknowle a great base to explore the Chesil Beach area plus some wonderful countryside to back that up. Just remember that swimming is not always advisable due to the strong currents at some locations. Do try the pub just a few yards down the road, the food is limited but very tasty and the staff are excellent. There is also a fantastic farm shop no more than a couple of miles away, well worth a visit.

About the location


Dorchester 12.2 miles; Weymouth 13.5 miles.

Puncknowle is a charming village of stone cottages surrounded by the beautiful Bride Valley on one side and a down land ridge that shelters the village from the sea on the other. Pronounced ‘Punnle’ this is a great location for exploring the Jurassic Coast and surrounding countryside. You can enjoy beach walks with spectacular views along the famous Chesil Beach, Hive Beach and Cogden Beach. The Market town of Bridport is only 5 miles away where you can find all the amenities you need including many independent cafes and restaurants. Abbotsbury is under 5 miles away and has much to offer, from Tropical gardens to the Swannery bird reserve. If that wasn’t enough the village is chocolate box pretty and filled with local artists and craftsmen who have their own shops to explore. St Catherine’s chapel sits above the village and can be seen for miles along the coast line, enjoy the walk from the village to the Chapel and enjoy the reciprocal views
