A charming semi-detached cottage in the quaint village of Eype provides a homely base with original features for exploring the area, either on your own or with your dog.

Situated in the picturesque village of Eype, this cottage is ideally located for access to a wide variety of local walks, local shops, and makes a home-from-home base for exploring further the wonders of this part of Dorset. Eype is located half a mile from the local shingle beach which is ideal for dog walking and taking in nature. The coastal walks are spectacular, but if you want to go a little further afield, Bridport is only 2 miles away and West Bay boasts a working harbour surrounded by cafes.

This charming semi-detached cottage is accessed via 10 stone steps leading up from the village lane. The property is entered through the small hall which then leads directly into a cosy lounge/diner. This space has a wealth of original features from the open fire and inglenook fireplace, to the feature bread oven and double window seats. The spacious double aspect kitchen has all modern appliances: fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer and is a good size for cooking the family dinner. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, both with original exposed wooden floors and there is also the family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Outside of the property, there is a small garden to the front of the property mainly laid to lawn with a few potted shrubs. At the rear of the property, there is a sloping lawn with countryside views, a terrace and a paved area housing the sun house and BBQ. This is accessed via some steps, and the whole rear garden is set on a slope. The rear garden is ideal for outdoor living and warmer evenings. There is designated parking for one car 10 yards away.

We have stayed at April Cottage many times before, and this stay was just as enjoyable as ever. The cottage is comfortable and charming, with a log fire and large garden offering views over the hills. Its location is excellent - in a tiny village, just a ten-minute walk down to a natural and beautiful beach. There are spectacular cliff walks from tRead morehe door. Already looking forward to a return visit! Hide

A really cosy cottage in a very quiet location with great walking from the doorstep. We really appreciated having the open fire in a rather chilly and wet week. Comfortable and tasteful throughout

Cozy cottage with a great garden space to make the most of the sunshine and views. Felt like a home from home space with all the comforts we needed for a relaxing family holiday. The location in Eype Village is accross from the New Inn pub with good food and drinks and the beach is only a 15 min stroll down the hill. The owners where very helpful wRead morehen needed and there is good local information provided in the cottage. Will definately look to stay again when in Dorset. Hide

The cottage is in a great location, the gated arden is not secure at the end so be aware if you take a dog that likes to explore. Dogs are also not allowed upstairs. The beach down the road is great and lots of nice places to visit around the area.

Very narrow lane to the cottage and surprisingly busy with traffic. Be prepared to back up narrow lanes if necessary.
