The Space

This a small non-smoking house - you have the pleasure of the biggest room. Shared bathroom with shower, toilet and basin, (no bath), shower all day if you want in our double sized shower. Don't bring towels, shampoo or soap as we will supply, but do bring your own toothbrush! Double bed (4 ft 6 inches) with lovely mattress on sprung wood base with a metal head and (website hidden), wi fi, wardrobe, drawers and writing desk area for your laptop/notebook/ipad; tea and coffee making facilities and a selection of classical CDs and films with a player (or a few books to peruse and maybe take with you if you want to finish one). Use of washing machine for a load if you are staying 3+ days. Please note that we are on a main road, although the windows have curtains and double glazing.
Bed and Breakfast may be scrambled eggs on toast and fresh fruit, or maybe a bacon sandwich, fresh fruit with yoghurt. Vegetarians can feel free to tell us, and be served accordingly (I have a lovely breakfast crumble recipe!) There will always be a good cuppa or two, or if you like coffee you can have an expresso or a whole cafetierre to yourself.

We are 12 minutes walk downhill to shops and pubs and cafes, and we have 4 supermarkets within 5 minutes drive. You can also get a bus right outside the house every hour which will take you to Weymouth in one direction, and Lyme Regis the other. We are less than 10 minutes drive to West Bay, or you can walk it in about 35 minutes - where you can get the BROADCHURCH experience if you are keen.

Our home is 200 years plus. The doors close but there are gaps at the top and bottom! However, the double glazing works well. There's no carpet on our floors, your room is original boards - but in Winter the house is warm and cosy and we can supply loads of blankets to add to the duvet on the bed, and of course, hot water bottles for cold feet, and in Summer it should never be too hot but we can supply you a fan.

If you look at our pictures, you will see that we have two cats. They don't have access to your room, but they are around.

Guest Access

Your bedroom and bathroom is upstairs,the dining room and sitting room is downstairs.

Interaction with Guests

Be as friendly as you want. Maybe you just want to sneak on upstairs? That's fine! If you want a chat, that's fine too. I will join you for breakfast unless you'd like to be alone.

The Neighborhood

Bridport is a small town with it's own "feel". Many independent shops, market twice a week, some good eating places. Ask me for a town map to find your way. With a car places like Chesil Beach or Lyme Regis are easy to find. You can walk from town to West Bay on the coast in about 30 minutes.

Getting Around

If you are arriving at either Axminster or Dorchester by train, check the 31 bus route which stops right outside our house. We are on a route that goes in one direction to Axminster Devon via Charmouth and Lyme Regis. In the other direction to Weymouth via Dorchester.
If you have a car we will be pleased to tell you about quirky places to visit! Park in our garden.

Other Things to Note

We are AirBnB travellers as well as hosts.

We really do like a photograph of you so that we can recognise you when you walk down the garden - and we do like it when your own details tell us something about you!
