Holiday Rental House
Barn Cottage, completely refurbished in June 2018. It is a self catering well equipped cottage, set in the centre of the world heritage Jurassic Coast and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The cottage has two first floor bedrooms with kingsize beds, the second having an additional single bed. The bathroom is downstairs. We welcome children but regrettably no dogs. The beach is less than a 15 minute walk away and the shop (with post office), and three very different pubs are all within a 10 minute walk. Golden Cap, the highest point on the south west coast, is within a 30 minute walk and you can walk to Thorncombe Beacon and West Bay within an hour. A regular bus service gives easy access to Lyme Regis, famous for fossilling and the 1981 drama The French Lieutenants's ...Barn Cottage, completely refurbished in June 2018.

Interaction with guests
Barn Cottage is within the curtilage of the main house, Midlands Farm, so we do live on site but are down the gravel drive. We say hello upon arrival but otherwise you are left alone to enjoy your holiday. We can of course advise on where to go and things to see and happy to be contacted during your stay if you need us.

About the neighbourhood
Chideock is only a stone's throw from Bridport (and West Bay) to the east and Charmouth to the west, both of which are outstanding holiday destinations in their own right. Chideock has it's own holiday access to the Jurassic Coast via Seatown. This is the favoured parking place for holiday makers who wish to climb the famous Golden Cap, which is only 2 miles away. Seatown beach is also wll known for fossiling. The seating area outside the Anchor Inn at Seatown is a magical spot to watch the sunsets - on the beach (see photogallery). Also famed for Thomas Hardy walking to the pub for a well earned pint. Situated in one of the most picturesque valleys in this part of the county, and spelled as Chideock in the Doomsday Book
Getting around
A car is useful for exploring the surrounding areas: West Bay, Bridport, Abbotsbury, Dorchester and Weymouth heading east, or Charmouth, Lyme Regis heading west. If you prefer not to use your car then there are plenty of walks you can do from the cottage including to Thornecombe Beacon and West Bay, and Golden Cap, Charmouth, Lyme Regis and beyond. There is plenty to entertain you if you chose not to use a car at all in fact! There is a bus service which travels in both directions too. The nearest train station is Axminster and Crewkerne. For the cyclist there is now a hire facility in Bridport.
