Charming Dorset Cottage.
Berry Farm Cottage nestles in a private area of the grounds of Berry Farm, which dates back to the 16th century. It is located in the charming Conservation Village of Walditch which is noted in the Domesday Book of 1086. When you arrive, you will absolutely understand why the whole of this area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The popular market town of Bridport, with its great arts scene, independent shops, ‘vintage quarter’ and many bars and restaurants, is only one mile away. And as for the beach? The World Heritage Jurassic Coast and famous West Bay (setting for the ITV drama ‘Broadchurch’) is also only 2.5 miles away.
The Cottage itself is set away from the main house in its own private grounds, with 1,200sqm (0.3acres) of orchard garden, including 18 apple, cherry and plum trees, as well as an outside patio with table and chairs.
To add to the countryside feel, adjoining this large garden is a field which, apart from (normally) January – March, is home to a flock of sheep - with newborn lambs arriving in springtime! (Note that, as this is not our flock of sheep, we cannot absolutely guarantee the periods that they will be in the field). Also, don’t be surprised if you see the odd deer in the garden.
This last year (2017-18), the Cottage has been completely refurbished internally with great attention to detail, in order to provide a lovely, cosy country cottage with many stylish touches.
There are 2 bedrooms (1 double on the first floor and 1 twin on the ground floor) and each has their own bathroom with walk in shower. Towels are provided and a full linen change is provided weekly.
The open-plan Sitting room has two double sofas, a flat screen Freeview television, DVD player, with shelves full of books, DVD’s, and games. Dual aspect windows allow a bright and airy feel year-round.
The dining area is in a ‘bistro’ style, and, with a choice of overhead light, picture lights and surrounding LED strip, this can be lit differently for each mealtime!
The adjoining kitchen is fully equipped with oven and dishwasher, with microwave, kettle and a full complement of required crockery, cutlery and glasses.
The utility room on the ground floor houses the washing machine and freezer.
There is private parking for two vehicles beside the cottage.
Note that Berry Farm is not a working farm.
