Property code: 56025

Characterful riverside property, in a beautiful village setting and ideally placed for easy access to Dorchester and the Jurassic Coast. It’s the perfect spot for a relaxed family holiday.

This charming and unique detached cottage is set in a quiet village location alongside the river in Piddletrenthide, perfect for a peaceful retreat. Located in the beautiful Piddle Valley, many walking and cycling routes can be found leading from the door and take in the picturesque landscape that this area is renowned for. In minutes you can reach the county town of Dorchester, which has a great selection of restaurants, cinemas, pubs and shops. Why not take a trip to the coast and visit the sandy beach and historic harbour in Weymouth or go fossil hunting in Charmouth.

From the gravelled parking area next to the cottage, a short walk along the lane leads you to the front door, which opens into a spacious and welcoming hallway with dining area. The calming colours, character and charm of this traditional cottage is sure to make you feel right at home, with low ceilings and original beams to be admired throughout. Immediately to your left is a cosy snug with Smart TV. Heading across the hallway you will pass a separate WC before finding the stylish country kitchen. Overlooking the garden, this delightful room is an inviting space for the whole family to enjoy and is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. To the right of the hallway is a stunning lounge with a Smart TV and an abundance of character features, including a wood burner and exposed beams. Once back in the hallway, a set of winding stairs lead up to the landing on the first floor, where you will find a charming bedroom with a queen size bed and a beautiful en-suite bathroom where you can take a soak in the freestanding slipper bath, with shower and WC. Adjacent to here is a further double bedroom furnished with care and overlooking the river to the front of the property. Next is the bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC. Two steps lead you to a generous twin bedroom which overlooks the garden and next door is a single bedroom with an additional pull out single bed (available on request at time of booking), which completes this floor.

Heading outside from the kitchen you will firstly find an inviting terrace with table and chairs. Ideally positioned behind the cottage it’s the perfect space to enjoy a quiet meal, or perhaps drinks in the evening. Leading on from here is a large lawn with a summer house, sure to keep all the family entertained. The river meanders through the garden (care to be taken with children and pets), creating the perfect setting for tranquil and relaxed days. Heading back to the side of the property, there is off-road parking for four cars.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We have stayed here a few times and love coming here. Its a lovely, homely property with an attractive which the river Piddle runs alongside. Although all the nearby pubs are closed the Thimble Inn at Piddlehinton is worth the walk or short drive; its the perfect pub.

Bridge Cottage is a charming cottage in an idyllic location. However, there were some specific weaknesses in the maintenance which we did not expect when paying such a relatively high rental price and which led to some problems for our family.

A lovely cottage in lovely grounds. Definitely "out in the sticks" so if you want a peaceful retreat this is ideal. For dog walkers, there are two bridle paths that you can use, and this is advised as the road through the village is narrow and well used. If you are looking for a king sized bed, the one in the master bedroom is smaller than you mighRead moret expect... Hide

Lovely cottage in a quiet location in rural Dorset, but the overall cleaning and maintenance was poor. We could not use the garden as the grass was overgrown and patio furniture was unusable and inside the cleaning was not good .

Cottage was good probably the best equipped we have been in, loads of room easily fit three couples. Only down side for us but due to COVID the two walkable pubs were still closed, but The Thimble inn is only 2 miles and serves very good food almost all day and is dog friendly.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful area, easy to get to lots of the sights of Dorset and do some really lovely walks from the door.
