Heading through the lounge you will come into a traditional farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room features stone flooring, a Belfast sink, bespoke units, oak worktops and a door opening onto the garden. The kitchen/diner is equipped with everything you should need for preparing tasty family meals, including an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a washing machine. Upstairs are two well-presented bedrooms, one light and airy double room with a wrought-iron bed, original floorboards and TV/DVD, the other bedroom is a twin with an original cottage window and slightly reduced height in the eaves. Completing he first floor is the bathroom which has a bath with overhead shower and WC.

We liked this cottage very much and would love to go again after the present situation has eased. Very cosy, wonderful location inc walks to the beach in Seatown plus pubs and food stores nearby. BUT for us the garden was the best for our dog. Enclosed and secure. He was very happy. Thank you.

A very enjoyable few days at Trimm Cottage. In a great location, clean and cosy with some considerate owners with the touches around the place.

Lovely cottage. Very nicely decorated with lots of nice little touches in keeping with the seaside home look. Lots of books and games. The garden was fully enclosed, so perfect for the dog. Lots of interesting walks directly from the cottage, down to the beach and across a number of close-by footpaths and bridleways. The Anchor Inn was within easy Read morewalking distance. Note: our Discovery Sport only just fitted in the parking space, so no giant SUVs! Hide

This is a great little cottage in a perfect location, just a short walk from beautiful Seatown beach. Dorchester, Lyme Regis and Bridport are all a short drive away and it is well positioned for many fantastic coastal walks. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend a stay at Trimm Cottage

A lovely old cottage, very well set out and comfortable. Everywhere thoroughly clean. I particularly liked the choice of books and games. Nice little garden and in a really good location.

Reviewed by T 20th September 2019

The cottage was chosen for its location near to the Coastal Path and other walks in West Dorset, and was very good for this. I always look for a shop and a pub in the village, and Wi-Fi. The shop was basic particularly for fresh food, but good range of shops in Bridport. The pubs both did good beer, but are more geared to providing food (particularRead morely the George). The Clock is nearer and was fine. The Wi-Fi was good and better than often found in rural locations. Hide

Trimm Cottage was absolutely perfect quirky old cottage with plenty of space - we only took our car out twice in the week we were there. The coastal path walks and sea close by as were the pubs for our evening meals when we couldn't be bothered to fend for ourselves after a long walk! Our collie loved being in the secure garden - a little oasis of Read moresunshine and shade for all. Absolutely fabulous cottage and location for children and dogs (small park area next door) - keep on leads Hide
