A Ropemakers cottage in the market town of Bridport close to the Jurassic Coast

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Welcome to Pinchens Cottage. A former Ropemakers (workers) cottage close to the centre of Bridport, West Dorset recognised as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage is lovingly furnished in an eclectic style with many vintage finds from the local markets and hand-made soft furnishings.

Mr Pinchen, a Ropemaker, along with his wife Mrs Pinchen, a Twine Binder, lived in the cottage in 1863 with their 3 children, and now we’d like to share the space with you. A home from home.

A Ropemakers cottage with one double bedroom and one twin room. The cottage has a comfortable living room with wood burner and a newly fitted cottage style kitchen/diner.

Downstairs the front door opens onto a cosy living room with a wood-burner, plenty of seating, cushions and blankets. Books/games/jigsaws/DVDs are also available to use. The kitchen/diner has comfortable seating for 4 and is well equipped with oven, fridge, washing machine, microwave and plenty of storage under the stairs.

Upstairs the first floor has a twin bedroom and bathroom with bath and shower above the bath. More storage can be found in the airing cupboard next to the bathroom. A further staircase leads to an open plan double bedroom in the loft, with lovely views across the town to Boarsbarrow Hill and surrounding countryside.

There is a detached enclosed garden well away from roads which you are welcome to use.

Pinchens Cottage is a 10 minute walk from the centre of the friendly and vibrant market town of Bridport and nestles under Allington Hill & Coopers Wood in the village of Allington. Explore the Saturday morning market or watch the world go by in one of the many restaurants, pubs or cafes sprinkled around the town.

The stunning cliffs and beaches of the World Heritage Jurassic coast are a 5 minute drive away (or a 25 minute walk along the River Brit) at West Bay, and Bridport is the perfect base to explore the surrounding area from, with Lyme Regis, Dorchester and Chesil Beach all within half an hour drive.

Charming terrace house in good location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, decorated nicely. 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bridport. Well stocked kitchen equipment, and we appreciated the games and wood burning stove.

Only downsides were limited parking outside and no door to the loft room, but these issues are reflected in the price. Parking was no big issue as there are spaces a couple of minutes away.

Many thanks for a lovely holiday - we would strongly recommend this holiday home.

Charming character-filled cottage, on more of a street than a road, quiet at night. Wifi worked, even the TV - against expectation - worked. Cosy with the woodburner. Would certainly make a return visit.

Homely cottage and good value for money

  • 4 of 5

We were given clear directions and information about the cottage before our stay, which was very helpful. The cottage, whilst on a busy road, is in a very good location, just a short walk into Bridport. The cottage itself is well equipped and very homely. It was great to have use of the garden too.

Lovely property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely cottage (spacious & comfortable, with excellent facilities) right on the edge of Bridport town. Great location, giving easy access to many parts of Dorset whether by foot or car. We had a lovely week here and would definitely book again! Neighbours were very friendly and helpful too. Would highly recommend this charming, well equipped home. Good communication from the owner too; very helpful.
