Bridport Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Sympathetically renovated cottage with conservatory, in farmland with lake.
Set in 17 acres of unspoilt Dorset farmland and just 5 miles from the market town of Bridport, Kingfisher Cottage is a delight for anyone who likes to get away from it all and enjoy the country life.
A traditional stone built cottage, it has been sympathetically renovated with beautiful flag stone flooring, a restful conservatory and private decking area next to the small river that runs close by. You can sit on the decking on a warm sunny day – of which there are many! – and maybe see the Kingfisher flying past.
The cottage sleeps up to four. It has one double bedroom and two sofa beds in the conservatory that can be screened off for privacy.
Kingfisher Cottage is on Lower Monkwood Farm, home to free range (happy!) pigs and a few cows as well as a beautiful lake in which you can swim or simply sit by and idle away the days in peace and quiet. We also offer clay pigeon shooting and fishing in the lake (well stocked with trout) at very reasonable prices.

About David Smith
My wife and I lived in London all our lives, but always enjoyed holidaying in Dorset and even purchased a small holiday cottage which we and our two daughters spent many a happy time in. When it came time to retire, we decided to make a permanent move to Dorset to enjoy the countryside walks, the spectacular coastline and the lovely people of West Dorset.
Why David Smith chose Bridport
Lower Monkwood Farm, in which Kingfisher Cottage sits, had everything we were looking for - a beautiful thatched farm house (although in much need of renovation!), farmland and small river running through. The farm had been neglected so we set to work on both the house, the cottage and the land itself and after much time and effort - including digging a lake - we had our dream home and a holiday cottage that many of our guests return to year after year,
What makes this cottage unique
There's always something new to see on the farm - every day brings something different. One day you may be lucky enough to see an Otter or maybe a Kingfisher, or the birds of prey that abound here. Then there's the river which changes depending on the weather, from a gentle babbling stream in summer to a roaring river in winter. And children and adults alike love to watch the piglets play in the field, often chasing each other in a game of tag!
