A characterful cottage with river views that's perfectly placed for exploring beautiful Dorset and its coastline, children and hound in tow

Beside the bubbling river Asker, down a quiet narrow lane, is your beguiling three-storey terraced cottage. Once home to a 19th-century rope-maker, it has been renovated to make it fresh and bright, yet retains plenty of character, with exposed beams and eclectic artwork on walls going off at all angles. In the open-plan living space the mix of modern and vintage furniture blends well with the natural colours, and the smart kitchen with its big table is an inviting place to gather. Upstairs spotless bedrooms are comfy, uncluttered and calm and the ground floor bathroom is neat and new. Young ones will happily stomp up the stairs to the loft conversion to hang out and play, there are plenty of games for a rainy day and the dog is more than welcome downstairs. Head out for a hike along the South West Coast Path, wander down to stony West Bay or stroll into Bridport’s buzzing centre to visit its independent shops and try any number of great places to eat. After a day of adventures come back to snuggle by the wood-burner or sit out in the rambling gardens, your own patch separated by a trellis brimming with flowers.

Local points of interest from
Belinda Richardson:

  • Colourful Bridport is right on the doorstep with its regular street markets, festivals, art deco cinema, bookshops, museum, arts centre and theatre. Take a seat in Bucky Doo (the town square) and let it all wash over you .
  • A mile's amble across the meadows leads to the working harbour of West Bay. Buy scallops fresh from the trawler, hire fishing boats and kayaks or book up for some coasteering, kite surfing and scuba diving. There's a well-kept links course for golfers too.
  • Walkers, cyclists and twitchers can follow the coastal path up and down cliffs towards Lyme (you'll need deep breaths to get up Golden Cap). Or fossil hunt your way along the shore towards the pebbly paradise of Chesil Beach, passing through Abbotsbury.
  • Ginger muffin enthusiasts should not miss Leaker's Bakery, a Bridport institutuion. Bella's deli and takeaway is also good for big home-made cakes, as is Sladers Yard, an art gallery in West Bay that has occasional music and live poetry too.
  • Rachel's is the pick of the myriad kiosks selling fish and chips in West Bay. The breezy, easy going Watch House Cafe, bang on the beach is considered less of a scrum than it's nearby sister, The Hive Beach, and it does good breakfasts too. Dogs welcome.
  • Family-owned Palmer's Brewery is a short stumble across South Street with guided tours that take you round historic brewery buildings and cover the whole brewing process. Tastings are a welcome part of the tour and takeaway draught beer is available.
