Welcome to Pinchens Cottage. A former Ropemakers (workers) cottage close to the centre of Bridport, West Dorset recognised as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage is lovingly furnished in an eclectic style with many vintage finds from the local markets and hand-made soft furnishings.
Mr Pinchen, a Ropemaker, along with his wife Mrs Pinchen, a Twine Binder, lived in the cottage in 1863 with their 3 children, and now we’d like to share the space with you. A home from home.
A Ropemakers cottage with one double bedroom and one twin room. The cottage has a comfortable living room with wood burner and a newly fitted cottage style kitchen/diner.
Downstairs the front door opens onto a cosy living room with a wood-burner, plenty of seating, cushions and blankets. Books/games/jigsaws/DVDs are also available to use. The cottage now has Wifi and a TV. The kitchen/diner has comfortable seating for 4 and is well equipped with oven, fridge, washing machine, microwave and plenty of storage under the stairs.
