A wonderful place to stay.
Cornflower cottage is a beautiful place to stay. It is superbly equipped, frankly the best we have been to - particularly if you like cooking. It really was home from home and there was everything one could possibly need. The rooms are all clean and spacious and the garden a delight. The beds were excellent, very comfortable and all slept soundly in them.
We all found the extra touches a thoughtful addition to the start of our holiday; flowers, wine and a ready to go barbecue tray, which we made full use of. A lot of extras were provided that one rarely finds in self catering accommodation. Robbie contacted us before our trip and gave full and comprehensive details and directions. He and Mark are perfect hosts, on hand if needed but unobtrusive the rest of the time, although having met Robbie, they would have been more than welcome to call in at any time. We visited three local places to eat; the pub next door - The Anchor, The Three Horseshoes and The Club House. We all enjoyed the meals in all three locations, all are different and special in their own ways and all are definitely worth a visit. The local beach is easily accessible (within walking distance) and has the well known Hive Beach Cafe there. There are lots of lovely local places to visit and if you need a massage that won't break the bank then visit 'The Shed' at Symondsbury.
The road outside is busy but we knew this before booking. We had dogs with us and we just made sure that we were vigilant about safety. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone and hopefully we will be able to come back sometime.

Great week in Burton Bradstock
Property was just as explained, with everything we required for an excellent week in Dorset for 3 couples. The cottage is charming, well equipped with a beautiful garden to relax in. The location is excellent within the village with two pubs with good food close by and two local shops. Parking was as explained with no problems parking opposite the cottage or in the nearby (50 metres) cul-de-sac. Enjoyed walking to Burton Beach and the Hive Café and to West Bay. The bus stop so close with service to Weymouth, Abbotsbury, Bridport and further afield a real bonus and we hardly used the cars. The road outside the cottage is busy but quiet at night.
The cottage has good size bedrooms, comfortable beds and is very well equipped.
The secluded back garden is attractive, and a sun trap. There was all the equipment we needed in the kitchen and throws were provided for the sofas as we had 2 dogs. We would definitely return if heading back to that area. The only downside was the busy road but we quickly got used to traffic passing and took extra care when crossing. We had three cars but parking wasn’t an issue as we always found space either opposite or nearby.
A beautiful cottage and garden
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is lovely, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Very well equipped with absolutely everything you could need. Lots of local information available and Robbie popped round to make sure all was well and to offer advice on places to visit and local pubs and restaurants. Two pubs almost on the doorstep serving excellent food and we also had a meal at The Club House at West Bexington which was lovely. The garden is gorgeous and totally secure which meant our dog could be let out safely. Lovely walks and places to visit within easy reach. We will be returning to Cornflower Cottage and would have no hesitation in recommending it. Thank you Robbie and Mark.
Burton Bradstock is a lovely village to explore and just a picturesque 15 min walk to Hive Beach with its trendy open air fish restaurant. The village has two excellent foody pubs, one 4 mins walk away and the other virtually next door. Cornflower Cottage comfortably accommodates 7 people and has a private garden with barbecue and eating area and summer house. The owners were very helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. Sun loungers would be a useful addition.
