  • Mr Ludlam

    “Cottage could have been cleaner, only one lightbulb working in kids bedroom, patio needs cleaning.”

    Some furniture in poor condition.

    Some furniture in poor condition. Good location, but for the cost we have stayed in much better properties. Not worth the money

The property

Resting at the heart of the village of Puncknowle, situated opposite the church and neighbouring a 16th century pub is this characterful dwelling, Chestnut Cottage.

This heart-warming retreat is ideal for couples, friends and families seeking to explore the delights that this part of Dorset has to offer all ages and tastes.

Enjoy an idyllic interior design, carefully selected furnishings and everything you could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing week-long break with your loved ones.

Here, you will find three elegantly appointed bedrooms to choose from, comprising of a double bedroom with garden views, an additional double and a twin, designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

Relax into your evening in the sitting room, where you can curl up on the plush sofa and tune into the TV, as the open-fire offers comfort during those chilly winter evenings.

Beyond here is the brightly decorated kitchen/diner, where the well-equipped kitchen comes with quality appliances to pack a picnic for the beach or rustle up a delicious evening meal that can be enjoyed at the well-presented dining table.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful base, a short car journey will bring you to the seaside village of West Bay, famous for being the location in ITV’s Broadchurch series, as well as the market town of Bridport, where you will find a selection of local independent shops, cafes and bars.

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
