The ‘chocolate-box’ village of Burton Bradstock is 3 miles with a good small beach. Abbotsbury, along the coast, has its famous swannery and sub-tropical garden. Further east is the Victorian seaside town of Weymouth, with Blue Flag beach, sea fishing, windsurfing, Sealife Centre and two RSPB nature reserves. Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool are great places for a family day out. Dorchester, the county town also known as Thomas Hardy’s ‘Casterbridge’ is 30 minutes’ drive and has a lively weekly market and beautiful Maiden Castle. To the west is the market town of Bridport which was Thomas Hardy’s ‘Port Bredy’ and has the twice weekly market as featured in the popular TV programme River Cottage. The picturesque harbours of West Bay are a great place for fishing. Lyme Regis is an attractive seaside resort which enjoys a dramatic setting with high cliffs, landslips and handsome harbour, known as The Cobb. Both Lyme Regis and Charmouth are renowned for their prehistoric fossils which are displayed in the local museum and on sale in the fossil shops. Local pub serving good food 250 yards.

    This was a lovely place to relax, the initial meeting with the owner was friendly and made us welcome. The fifth bed as pictured has much more room than it appears to in the picture. It is in a very quiet, pleasant village, if you have dogs to walk take a head torch as there are no pavements and typically for local villages not many street lights, there are good cross country dog walks very close (across the road) it is a good walk to the beach but would be a steep walk back for some. There are some fantastic places to visit with old fashioned beaches. Charmouth, etc. If it is your thing, the Devon and Dorsets museum in Dorchester is a must visit. Don't bother with the Dinosaur museum though, not good value and very tired. I would stay at the cottage again.

    The master bedroom en=suite is rather cramped and difficult for a man to stand and pee ! A warm and helpful host and a beautiful location.

    2 Sawmill Cottages was a home from home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It had everything we needed and more. We were sorry to leave and will certainly be back. Alan is a gentleman and on hand if you need anything - which you won't, believe me. The location is wonderful and there are a few walks from the door if you have a dog. Bridport is just down the road if you need supplies. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try "The Crown" but will do the next time. I can't recommend this cottage highly enough, we loved it. Thanks Alan, see you sometime next year.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Sawmill Cottages, the cottage was lovely and warm on our arrival and the owner was very welcoming. We were surprised at how spacious the cottage was and had a very comfortable stay. Thank you! We would definitely stay here again.

    We loved the spacious kitchen and living room! The bedrooms were cosy and the bathroom were fine. Alan was very kind and helpful, and the place was spotless. The only reasons for decreasing a little my overall evaluation are the strong smell of kerosene in the hall (fortunately we could close the door to the kitchen and limit the smell in there, and the fact that the flue of the boiler exits directly on the seating area outside. A flue extension seems necessary!

    Spacious property, well equipped. Comfortable chairs but hard beds. Good starting point for exploring local coast and countryside. Little in the village but an active community.
