À propos de ce logement
A small cosy cottage, and we love living here. In the Summer the garden is full of colour - and bees are welcome! Bedroom has TV, books, videos, classical music CDs, and of course, tea and coffee making facilities. A light breakfast included.
This a small non-smoking house - you will 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 foot. TV, 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 2+ 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!) Tea (including green, please ask) or good coffee - expresso or cafetierre. We will serve breakfast up until 9.45 am.... but you can make a special request for a bit later the night before.
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, the room is original boards - but in Winter the house is warm and cosy and we can supply blankets to add to the duvet on the bed, and of course in Summer it should never be too hot but we can supply a fan.
If you look at our pictures, you will see two cats, although we only have one now. She doesn't have access to your room, but you'll see her around.

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.
Please note that we are on a MAIN ROAD. Bridport is a small town with it's own "feel". Many independent shops, market twice a week, some good eating places. Ask me how 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.
If you are arriving at either Axminster or Dorchester by train, check the X51 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.
We are AirBnB travellers as well as hosts.
We do like it when your own details tell us something about you!
Please try to by home by 12 midnight (there's no cure if you turn into a pumpkin!)
Leave the bathroom as you would wish to find it, and do help youself to soap, shampoo, etc - in fact anything you see in the little metal container laid out just for you in the bathroom.
Retired and loving it. We live a mile from the sea along the Jurassic Coast, and within easy reach of Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Dorchester. Coast and countryside together, a lovely mix. Should you be on the way to the west country and find you just can't "do" another hundred miles, why not pop in if we are free? Love to have you.
We like to travel too, and will try for AirBnB wherever possible. I am a great reader, love my garden and he is a silver surfer (oh how he loves the internet!)
2013 was our first Airbnb year, and we loved hosting folk and will continue to do so. We hope people will like us when we are guests, too.
Some favorite films? It's a Wonderful Life, Star Wars, Big, The Hunger Games, A Royal Affair, Amadaeus,.... and anything French!
We have a cat - Mabel, but your room is a no-go area for her. The big ginger in the pic was Fred who passed on to the mousie hunting grounds last year, so now she (Mabel) is absolutely in charge!
And since we've retired, our motto is "life's too short.......!"
