Field View Cottage is located at Higher Eype, about a ten minute walk from Eype a pretty 'olde' English village believed to have been a smugglers haunt! This rural cottage is positioned so that you may take in the splendid view of fields and countryside which surround it. The New Inn, where dogs are welcome, and hotel with a dog friendly 'Smugglers' bar open to non-residents during high season, offer a warm welcome to all visitors. Field View Cottage has been finished and furnished by the owners with a palette of muted sea colours and neutrals, the decor and furniture give the property an air of relaxation. The large, extended kitchen/diner is the perfect environment in which to enjoy a meal or coffee with friends and family and this opens out onto a patio and lawned garden bordered by fields beyond. With the Jurassic Coast on your doorstep this is ideally located for some hearty walks to nearby West Bay in one direction and Charmouth in the other. For a busier atmosphere, the market town of Bridport is only a mile away where you can find well known high street stores, antiques and collectables, as well as a regular farmers' market showcasing the best of Dorset produce.

Accommodation: Double aspect lounge with wood burning stove. Step up to kitchen/diner with French doors leading onto the pretty garden. Downstairs utility/shower room, toilet and hand basin, washing machine. From lounge, cottage stairs with turn at the top leading to first floor: Bedroom 1, king size double bed. Bedroom 2, bunk beds. Steep and narrow cottage stairs leading to second floor which has restricted headroom due to sloped ceiling height and very low beams (care needed) on this floor, Bathroom, bath with rinse attachment, toilet and hand basin. Bedroom 3, king size double bed.

Services in addition to standard equipment: Wifi. Gas central heating. Log burner in lounge. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Flat screen TV. Cot and high chair. Bed linen and towels inclusive.  Unrestricted parking in the lane directly outside the cottage but as the lane is very narrow here, although it should be fine to quickly offload outside, vehicles must be parked further down the lane where it is wider to avoid causing an obstruction.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at field view cottage. The cottage itself was gorgeous and we loved the attic bedroom. There was lots to do nearby and we would definitely recommend it to others - stayed August 2017

About the Location

Eype is a wonderfully peaceful coastal village, with narrow winding lanes, pretty cottages, a great local pub, where well behaved dogs are welcome, and a glorious setting amongst The Golden Cap National Trust Estate. Eype is the perfect place to escape and relax in a cosy holiday cottage.

The pretty winding lanes lead to a beautiful shelving shingle beach, where the locals come for some seclusion, away from the more well-known tourist beaches of Lyme Regis to the west and West Bay to the east. The large soft pebbles make it a comfortable picnicking spot and the beach is one of the best for keen fishermen.

Simply step outside your holiday cottage and you have rambling walks in abundance, all across the world famous Jurassic coastline, where you can take the coastal route along the South West Coastal Path, or a countryside jaunt past fields of peacefully grazing farm animals.

Fossil hunting is a must in this area, since the coastline dates back from around 189 million years ago. Spend a day on the beach, building sandcastles and digging up ammonites and then relax in the village pub for a tipple or two.

The village of Eype is just a couple of miles away from the cool and bustling market town of Bridport. The street market is held every Wednesday and Saturday here and there is also a fantastic monthly farmers market and a regular vintage market.

Eype is also just as close to the perfectly quaint West Bay Harbour. A great place to while away the afternoon watching the fishing boats or perhaps hire a boat yourself for a trip through the riverside meadows.
