Why Adrian and Sue Semmence chose Powerstock
Having spent many happy holidays in Dorset with our two children we hoped that one day we would be able to make it our home. The moment we drove down the slope to the property and saw the spectacular valley and hill views we knew this was the place for us. Our cottages are set above the quintessentially English village of West Milton and are ideal for relaxing, walking, cycling and exploring Dorset with its hidden treasures and we take advantage of this whenever possible. We are lucky to have a large number of good village pubs close to us, many with interesting menus and with a policy of using fresh local produce whenever possible.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our 4 star self-catering cottages are well equipped accommodations, ideal for exploring Dorset. The self-catering holiday cottages are all part of a 200 year old converted barn and farm buildings, arranged around a courtyard. Whether you are looking for a getaway on your own, or with a big group, we have accommodation to suit. The cottages are set in 9 acres and surrounded by the beautiful hills and valleys of this unspoilt part of West Dorset, which has been designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Yet, only four miles from the centre of the market town of Bridport, famous for rope-making, and five miles from the sea at West Bay, more famous for the TV Broadchurch Show, you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the wide range of activities on offer.
