About Neil & Penny Thomas
No 29 Barrack Street has been in our family for very many years and has been lived in by various members of the family at different stages of their lives, usually when bringing up small children. Family still live and work in the area - having graduated to larger detached houses to accommodate their growing children! - we are therefore familiar with all the local eateries, best places to visit and willing to pass on any local information.
Neil & Penny Thomas purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Neil & Penny Thomas chose Bridport
The location - see our reviews - Although close to the main street in this ancient market town we are tucked away in a 'no through' road so you will get a decent night's sleep. The garden is secluded with an eclectic mix of trees and shrubs and whether you want sun or shade during the summer months there are plenty of seating areas.
What makes this Cottage unique
The proximity to Bridport's main shopping street and all the different eating places whilst enjoying the quiet road and tranquil garden setting makes this a place to remember. We are 1.5 miles to the cost at West Bay and only 7 miles from Charmouth Heritage Centre where the 200 million year old fossilised sea dragon is currently on display. The fossil was discovered on the nearby Monmouth Beach.

Very good location. Fulfilled our requirements. Beds comfortable. A few minor improvements. The sofa and chair in the living room are not very comfortable, too low and unsupportive. Some of the saucepans need replacing. Loved the wild garden.

An amazing home from home stay.
Fantastic cottage with everything you could need though out your stay a real home from home. A great base for exploring the local area in a quirky setting steeped in history. Bridport is an excellent place in itself with lots going on , whether its the market on a Saturday morning or music in the many pubs and restaurants - there is something for everyone. The bus services are also great and you can wander further afield if you want to. An excellent location if you want to forget the car and just explore locally. West Bay is only a short (approx 2 miles) walk away with many of the 'seaside' entertainments that you would expect. Definitely try Aroma cafe - fabulous sarnies, paninis and soups (large portions too) and the Taj Mahal - sublime!. Also The Stables Pizza place behind the Bull Hotel is great. We'll definitely be back.
