Overview

About the property

Dormouse Cottage is a delightful and beautifully proportioned stone cottage located in the sleepy Dorset village of Loders, with its welcoming pub, church and pretty stone built thatched cottages giving the visitor a taste of traditional English village life, now fast disappearing. Recently renovated the cottage is practical and welcoming with a cosy but spacious lounge with woodburner, separate dining area, two bedrooms and a glorious sunny garden with views of the popular walker’s haven of Boarsbarrow Hill and a patio perfect for some al fresco dining. The county of Dorset is renowned for its picturesque villages, soft rolling countryside and Jurassic coastline and there is plenty to entertain the visitor. These include trips to the many beaches along the Heritage Coast, fossil hunting at Charmouth, a day out at the stunning beach at West Bay, visiting the delightful seaside town of Lyme Regis or meandering through the streets in bustling market town of Dorchester.

Why Paul Roper chose Lyme Regis & West Dorset

A beautifully presented cottage with new and modern bathroom and a wood-burning stove in the lounge - perfect for those winter's nights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dormouse cottage is situated a few minutes drive from Bridport in a quiet village called Loders. We stayed at the end of July and had an enjoyable week exploring Dorset. We found the cottage to be very homely and well equipped, with a comfortable living room with a log burner which we used on a couple of chilly evenings. The cottage had a nice modern bathroom with a powerful shower and comfortable bedrooms. The garden was also a bonus as it was south facing and we ate our evening meals outside in the sun. There is a country pub a few minutes walk which has nice ales and food, supermarkets and shops are a short drive away. We found the cottage to be ideally situated with an easy drive to Lyme Regis, Charmouth, West Bay, and Weymouth. We would recommend this cottage and look forward to returning in the future

Lovely cottage, good location - quiet village but close enough to Bridport for shops/restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our week, cottage is dog friendly, has nice back garden and good walks from the door way into neighbouring villages. Close to Bridport could get a taxi at night no problem. Would stay again

Dormouse Cottage, a perfect nest in a great location

  • 5 of 5

It is extremely rare to get such an old traditional cottage to be so well furnished and equipped to 21st century standards and with such a lovely garden which we enjoyed so much given the beautiful weather. Another great benefit of the location was the sheer number of great pubs nearby who provided some excellent meals.

Lovely cottage, beautiful location

We had a great time staying at this charming cottage with our two dogs. The cottage is well-equipped with all amenities required for a wonderful relaxing break and the secure garden at the rear is very tranquil. Would definitely return in the future.

Property gave us everything we needed, it offered home comforts as well as security for buddy our dog. Great location, central for touring the Jurrassic coast. Quiet village with lots of good walking. Highly recommended for a quiet getaway.

A magical place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Paul and Kimberley it is a wonderful cottage, the decor was amazing and it was welcoming and cosy. Everything you will need for your holiday is there. The beds were sooo comfortable.

Lots of places to visit a short drive away, Abbots Tropical Garden is a must. There are some great walks directly from the cottage. It was lovely to get back after a busy day to sit in the garden and enjoy the view with a glass or two of wine.

The local shop is well stocked and the Loder Arms pub has good food at a reasonable price.

Any queries we had were proptly replied to by Paul and the deposit was refunded to my bank within days. Hope we will back soon.
