The Space

Join us in our recently refurbished country cottage. The whole house has been featured in 25 Beautiful Homes, House Beautiful and Dorset magazines.

The cottage is in the small village of Uploders, a few minutes drive from Bridport and 10 minutes from the Jurassic Coast at Burton Bradstock.

The room is away from the main living area of the house so you'll feel very private. It's a large room with an en-suite bathroom, sitting area, TV, dressing table etc - you'll certainly be able to swing a cat!!

The local pub is but a 5 minute walk and does great food as well as standard pub drinks! Bridport (email hidden) for the Arts, live music, markets and antiques (in the Vintage Quarter). And of course, there's the whole of the Jurassic Coast to explore.

Although the pub is only a short walk away, there are no shops within walking distance. You'll need the car!

Breakfast is included in the price, comprising coffee/tea/ juice; cereals; home-made bread/toast and preserves; cold meats, cheese, locally sourced yoghurt etc. If you want a 'full AGA English', this can usually be arranged for an additional cost of £5.00 per guest; but do let us know if you want this option, prior to your arrval!

This is our private home and we'd love you to share it for a few days. If you know where you want to go, we'll leave you be, but if you want some help to 'get under the skin' of this great part of the world, we'll happily oblige!

Guest Access

Your suite is totally self contained on the ground floor of the house. We'll sort your breakfast in the large dining area off the kitchen - so that's just about it for the house!

We have a large terraced garden which we're happy for you to wander around. At the end of the sunny day there's a table for two by the Koi pond - were more than happy for you sit there enjoying the rays.

If you're really lucky, and you enjoy al fresco dining, we'll happily lay up breakfast for you on the patio right behind the kitchen.

Interaction with Guests

We'll certainly be around to say hi on arrival. Let us know what we can do to enrich your stay and we'll do our best to help - after that, it's pretty much up to you - it's your holiday.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfect description of a lovely room with a delightful couple who made us very welcome at their interesting home. The village is great and the beach nearby, and Heather made sure we knew where we were going and loaned us beach towels to boot. when our taxi failed to arrive on the second night, Lawrence went haring off down the street to bring it back. they are a fascinating pair , and staying with them added an extra dimension to what was already a fabulous weekend for us. Terrific breakfast, extremely good value and a very positive first air b and b experience for us

  • We had a fantastic stay with Lawrence and heather. They could not have been more hospitable and not to mention helpful with information about the local area.

    The room was immaculate, a fantastic size and had superb facilities - including a fabulous ensuite. As described the room was totallty self contained and so we felt comfortable to come and go as we pleased. We also had the pleasure of wandering around the lovely garden which was fantastic.
    The breakfast was superb, the best we've ever had at a bed and breakfast.
    The local area was beautiful and the house is a great location for visiting the surrounding areas.
    We would highly recommend!

  • What a huge and lovely room to stay in! Heather and Lawrence were really friendly and the breakfast was amazing, we just had the continental- it was more than enough. Would highly recommend and would go back again.

  • We loved staying at Lawence and Heather's. The photographs are as the room is - but in real life, it is even lovelier; light, airy, spacious. Big bed and beautiful bathroom.

    Heather and Lawrence were really welcoming and provided a delicious breakfast. It's a great location too; we love Bridport and the surrounding village and where Lawrence and Heather are is just a short drive from lots of lovely places. We found the local pub, The Crown, great for a freshly prepared pub meal a five minute walk away. Not the usual standard menu, (email hidden) - no gaming machines etc but good wine, ale and food.

    We recommend!

  • Lawrence und Heather sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Das Zimmer ist sehr schön eingerichtet, es ist sehr großzügig und ruhig. Das Bad ist luxuriös. Lawrence gab uns sehr gute Tipps zu Unternehmungen und Restaurants, das Frühstück war hervorragend. Es hat viel Spaß gemacht, sich mit den Gastgebern über Reisen und Hobbys zu unterhalten.
