Welcome to The Cabin! The perfect retreat from modern life. Get back to nature with muddy walks, fresh air and stunning seaside strolls!

The Cabin is located in West Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is on the doorstep to some of Dorset's best walks, National Trust sites, Jurassic Coast beaches, award winning restaurants and bustling weekend markets.

The space
COVID 19 UPDATE: In line with government guidelines, I am only taking new bookings from 4th JULY 2020. Please get in touch if you have any questions. Thank you :)

We're dog friendly here and so a maximum of 2 well behaved dogs are welcome to join you at The Cabin (£10 charge may be added at the end if extra cleaning is necessary, please see house rules if bringing your dog).

The Cabin is located along a quiet country lane that ends in a bridle path. There are no noisy main roads or constant through traffic and pollution to disturb your peace and quiet.
Just a short drive to the famously beautiful World Heritage Site of The Jurassic Coast and situated in Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Cabin is a cosy, quiet base to explore some of Dorset's most loved scenery.

For all your foodie needs we highly recommend a visit to the nearby Washingpool Farm Shop (which you may recognise from Broadchurch) where you will find the very best local produce to cook up a taste of country life. The kitchen is stocked with tea and coffee and the essentials such as a cooker, oven, toaster, fridge with freezer, cutlery, dishes, pots and pans etc.

The living area is soft and cosy with a larger Hunter Herald 8 woodburner. This is the only heating in The Cabin and will get the whole place lovely and snug. We provide a starter load of logs which may last you for your whole stay if you're out and about a lot, but if you want to spend 2 days in front of a burning fire you can purchase more logs from us for £10 a bucket, or head to Groves garden centre in Bridport and purchase a bag of seasoned logs for around £6/7. In winter the fire will be lit before you arrive so it will be nice and toasty and you can just relax. Matches and firelighters are provided. Please only burn wood and not other fuels.

The Cabin is very comfortable and cosy but it isn’t luxury. Perfect for couples and those looking to just relax. The Cabin is opposite a small organic beef and lamb farm so you should expect to hear a little farm noise as the farmers go about their day. The amount of noise varies depending on the season and if the cows are in the barn during winter. In the summer they're in the fields and noise is at a minimum. It's very much the sound of rural Dorset.

Guest access
You will have full access to The Cabin and its garden area. Kindling and firelighters will be provided for the wood-burner, and you are welcome to curl up with any of the books on the shelves.

Other things to note
Two well behaved dogs are welcome at The Cabin, however dogs must remain on the lead at all times in the garden area as there is livestock nearby as well as cats and wildlife. A £10 charge may be added at the end to cover the extra muddy paw clean-up (if there is any).

The Cabin does NOT currently have WIFI but there is good reception and 4G. Please be aware of this before you book to avoid disappointment.

The Cabin does not have central or electric heating, only the woodburner. It will get the place lovely and warm, but if you have any trouble please just ask and I will pop in and show you how to use it.

Step out of your front door, turn left and you'll find yourself rambling along a bridle path that connects you to the Brit Valley Way, an 11 mile walking route that meanders through Dorset's stunning countryside all the way to West Bay where you'll see the Jurassic Coast's iconic cliffs and the backdrop to ITV's Boradchurch!

Or, if you feel like staying closer to home, head up the road to the beautiful ancient Iron Age hill fort of Lewesdon Hill. It's the highest hill in Dorset and it's a beautiful walk through ancient oaks and beech trees. The view from the top is stunning and one of the best in the county, particularly in spring when the way up is carpeted with bluebells.

The Cabin is a short wander along the lane to the award winning Furleigh Wine Estate where you can taste some fantastic British wine and take a guided tour of their vineyards. Why not bring some wine back with you to enjoy beside a toasty fire? Their wine can also be found at Washingpool Farm Shop if you don't have time for a tour.

The Cabin is within easy reach of some of West Dorset's best beaches, walks and towns. Bridport is a short drive away and offers fantastic pubs and cafes as well as a busy Wednesday and Saturday market and many antique and vintage shops. Lyme Regis is 20 minutes west and is a must visit if you're a keen fossil hunter (or simply to visit the fudge shop!). We are so lucky to have West Bay, Burton Bradstock, West Bexington, Eype, Charmouth and Lyme Regis beaches in easy reach of The Cabin, so whether you want cliffs or no cliffs, pebbles or sand, lots of people or only a tiny few, there is a beach and a walk to suit you here.

Whatever you are visiting for, we hope you enjoy your stay at The Cabin!
