Browse through our range of Bridport Holiday Cottages and the surrounding South West Dorset area and find your very own piece of paradise in one of our favourite Dorset towns.
Bridport is a lovely little market town, known to be rather trendy with its boutique shops, art galleries and restaurants. The town is also favoured by many an actor, artist and television personality, who have made it their home.
As much as Bridport is known for being a peaceful, idyllic rural town, boasting the best spot by the sea, it is also known as the place which started the Dorset art scene back in the noughties.
Perhaps your stay in one of our beautiful Bridport holiday cottages, could be complemented by a visit to an exhibition in a local gallery, sipping champagne whilst admiring the work of the county’s best artists and crafts people. Add to this a jazz concert (of which Bridport hosts many), poetry events and top notch dining, and you will see why over the years, Bridport has often been referred to by those in the know, as ‘Notting Hill on Sea’!
We have some wonderful cottages in our Bridport cottage selection, including a traditional old cottage with large cosy inglenook fireplace, a modern sea facing chalet, an exquisitely styled old stable conversion, a cliff top modern dwelling and a peaceful pet friendly old stone farmhouse deep in the Dorset countryside.
A stay in Bridport can be anything you want it to be. You can enjoy the peaceful picturesque villages, the bustle of the market town, the beaches at Sea town and West Bay and the pretty English harbour. The fact that the town also boasts some of the finest dining establishments in Dorset is just an added bonus!
Surrounded by green hills and countryside with pretty little streams and rivers running through it, Bridport is just perfect for city dwellers searching for country charm. With the finest traditional pubs, many of which lovingly welcome dogs, great markets, fantastic restaurants and tea rooms and the culture provided by the famous art scene, there is plenty to keep everyone in your cottage party, very happy.
The Street Markets are held every Wednesday and Saturday and Bridport Farmers Market is on every month. There is also a regular Vintage Market for all those with a keen eye for shabby chic antiques. Bridport’s Electric Palace is also fantastic showing films, live theatre, comedy and gigs. Shopping in Bridport’s independent boutique shops will bring you some lovely unique vintage finds and for beach life, head to West Bexington or Charmouth for some splendid fossil hunting.
Down at West Bay, just a couple of miles from the centre of Bridport, the working harbour is well worth a visit for a stroll and some freshly caught fish and chips. The harbour was famously used as the setting for the TV series Broadchurch and it is little wonder why. Along the harbour are some fantastic restaurants including the Riverside Restaurant, serving the freshest oysters you will find.
