Unique Farmhouse In Burton Bradstock, Dorset

Bedrooms 4
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Farmhouse in Burton Bradstock, nr. Bridport, Dorset, England - Listed Farmhouse Village Setting And Only A Few Minutes Walk To The Beach.

A farmhouse full of character and intriguing history. Downstairs there are high ceilings and some impressive 16th century carved beams, as well as a Tudor fireplace upstairs, suggesting this was once part of a much grander building of high status. It has been recently renovated to provide a comfortable home, whilst retaining a farmyard feel. We keep our own hens and if they are laying you will be welcomed with some of their tasty eggs. It has the benefit of being right in the village, yet with lots of space and a short walk to the beach or stunning countryside. There are two pubs, a post office and store in the village.

Why Robert Browse chose Burton Bradstock

The owners have had a cottage in Burton Bradstock for the last 10 years. They bought Shadrack Dairy Farm in April 2011. It had been empty for over 12 years and became a labour of love to return it to its former glory and restore its place in the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have visited Burton Bradstock many times and this is, by far, the best property we’ve stayed in over the years. Very well equipped with comfortable and tasteful furnishings throughout. Great to find such a lovely cottage which is both child and dog friendly. We will definitely stay here again. Sept 2011.

Shadrack Dairy Farm is a truly special place to stay. We had a wonderful family holiday and wouldn’t change a thing. The cottage is full of character, has plenty of room and is very well equipped. It is beautifully decorated and furnished, being luxurious yet homely. Situated in a friendly village, Shadrack is only a 10 minute walk to the local beach. Hive beach is fantastic, the kids loved it. We visited a few other beaches along the coast but thought that Hive was the best. We couldn’t have been more delighted when we arrived at Shadrack, and didn’t want to leave. We have lots of special memories and would love to return for another family holiday. July 2011.

comfort and joy

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren gathered, with my husband and I for Christmas at Shadrack. We all found the house to be clean, warm and welcoming. The Aga played a big part in that, and it also did an excellent job at cooking a 14lb turkey. The kitchen is adequately equipped to cope with Christmas lunch. There is a large American style fridge and an electric oven and hob.

The sitting room is comfortable and , to our delight, a fragrant and exquisitely decorated tree awaited us.

The dining room is narrow and ,when all seated at the large table , was cramped. However, this did not spoil things and the photo does show that it is a narrow room.

Bedrooms have an interesting mix of furniture and beds are comfy(too soft for some). The bathrooms are of a good standard.

Our 4yr old grandson was excited to see Father Christmas pass by the front of the house on his sleigh one night....magical.

Location is excellent with two pubs and a couple of shops close by and within easy walking distance of coast. There is also a good playground around the corner.

If you come with dogs the conservatory is a boon. There is also an outhouse with running water, to wash them off.

Shadrack is a comfortable, spacious home from home. Robbie and Mark are extremely helpful from booking stage onward.

We would all love to return one day.

Lovely property, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property in September 2017. From our initial enquiry through to our return home, Robbie and Mark were just the perfect hosts. They provided us with all the information we needed and were always so quick to respond to our messages.

Their property is fantastic and ideal an ideal base for exploring this wonderful part of the world. It is exceptionally well located for local amenities, being just a very short walk from two pubs and the (lovely) village Post Office/shop. We also enjoyed several walks from the property, both inland and along the coastal path which is just a few minutes walk away.

The property itself is very well equipped and has a lovely warm, authentic farmhouse feel to it. We look forward to returning again soon.

Spacious cottage quaint village location

  • 5 of 5

Three generations enjoyed their stay at Shadrack. The cottage was spacious, well equipped, very clean and most important to us "dog friendly"

The owners Mark and Robbie were quick to respond to any queries and whilst staying made sure everything was ok.

Good quality towels and linen with a welcome bottle of wine and flowers appreciated.

We had a tasty Birthday meal at the 3 Horseshoes with another birthday treat of a pamper treatment and cream Tea at Moonfleet Manor, a delightful unique place.

Further afield we enjoyed Lyme Regis, Weymouth and when in Dorchester the Teddy Bear Museum brought back childhood memories.

My Niece and Nephew enjoyed the "Fright Night" for Halloween at Abbotsbury Gardens with the ticket price including a visit to the Swannery and farm.

Thank you for a great holiday

Ideal rental,Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, we were 5 adults and 2 young children and the downstairs and bedrooms were ideal for our group. Property interior very stylish and roomy with all the equipment we needed. Outside space was good especially the orchard area for the children. The owners were very welcoming, liked a good chat and were always available if needed. Burton Bradstock is a lovely village, great walks, beautiful coastline 5 minutes from property. Two good eating pubs both less than 2 minutes walk from the property plus great hotel eating 10 minutes walk away on top of cliffs.

We as a group really hope we will make it back to this property it was just perfect for our family needs.

The only negative was that we had to take a bulky travel cot as the owners did not supply one, however they did supply high chair and stair gate.

Fantastic cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week in the Farmhouse. It's extremely well equipped and enjoys a great location which our whole family loved (5 adults & 1 infant).

Mark and Robbie are brilliant hosts and gave us several excellent tips on where to visit and places to eat. We particularly liked the Seaside Boarding House and the Anchor, both of which are within easy walking distance - even for the Grandparents!

I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Shadrack and hope our family can visit again soon!

Very comfortable farmhouse in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was extremely enjoyable - the farmhouse is full of character and very comfortable. My family came over from France and was very pleased: the farm is a fantastic place to gather as a family and there are many places to explore (walking distance to the beach, excellent and atmospheric market in Bridport, etc.). Mark and Robbie are the best hosts and I highly recommend the place - a gem in Dorset!
