Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5
My family ( wife + 3 kids) had a fantastic holiday at Cato cottage. Plenty of room, enough for grandparents to visit for a couple of nights. Clean, well equipped, great location. Would definitely go back!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Four of us stayed over Easter weekend and the cottage was just perfect! It was incredibly well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. There was plenty of space in the cottage, we could all sit together or spread out across different rooms. The sun room was lovely for a cup of tea in the mornings! We also made use of the garden!

The location is a very short walk from Bridport centre so no need to take the car. Parking at the cottage was spot on!

We couldn't find anything to fault the cottage on and a good time was had by all!

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Great place for a chill out weekend with the 'adult' children and their partners. A really comfortable space with lovely sunroom. Garden looked inviting, but it rained, so we lit the log burner instead and felt very cosy! Well equipped, close to a bustling town highstreet and short drives to so many interesting places - should have booked for longer!

Cato Cottage in Bridport

  • 5 of 5
We have recently enjoyed a fantastic holiday in Cato Cottage. There were 4 adults and 4 young children. The Cottage was a real home from home, the children had a fantastic time exploring the cottage, garden and the surrounding area. We really recommend a holiday in this cottage as the position of it is fantastic. There are many conveniences just a short walking distance from the cottage such as a local pub and supermarket for those essential items. Many exciting destinations such as Lyme Regis, Weymouth and the Jurassic coast are also close by. The owners were extremely approachable and gave a friendly service. We hope to come back again and stay in this lovely place.

Bridport is in West Dorset, close to the Jurassic coast, the famous Chesil Beach and the incredible Swannery and Sub tropical gardens at Abbotsbury. The county town, Dorchester, just 12 miles away, long associated with Thomas Hardy, also boasts the Dinosaur & Teddy Bear museums. Charmouth and Lyme Regis are a short bus or drive away, or you could lose yourself in the Great Dorset Maze. Weymouth has a Sea life Centre and other family activities. Nearby there is the Cerne Abbas Giant to see or you could go to the Haynes Motor museum or experience the Fleet Air Arm in Yeovil. For people who love art/crafts/music, there is a thriving arts scene, with many local pubs having regular music gigs. For those who love history, you could take in some historic houses such as Athelhamton or Sherbourne Abbey or the astonishing iron age fort of Maiden Castle. Burton Bradstock Beach is great for family fun and the cafe, which is open all year, is the perfect place to recover from a long walk.

Great fossil hunting opportunities and special guided trips are special to this area.

Other Activities: Leisure centre with swimming pool

And one of England's few Real tennis courts on the outskirts of the town.

Golf: There is a golf course at West Bay.
