Myrtle Cottage is a spacious and attractive Grade II listed stone and thatched cottage in the centre of the pretty village of Netherbury. It has a well-tended and secluded garden and even a shepherd's hut! The cottage has been furnished to a high standard and provides all modern comforts whilst retaining many period features such as the large inglenook fireplace with bread oven - a remnant from the days when Myrtle Cottage was the village bakery. Netherbury was the home of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's original ‘River Cottage' and was the village of Cloton in Thomas Hardy's short story ‘Destiny and a Blue Cloak'. There is a pub in the neighbouring hamlet of Waytown a short walk away and there are good pubs and restaurants in the attractive towns of Beaminster (2 miles) and Bridport (4 mile...Myrtle Cottage is a spacious and attractive Grade II listed stone and thatched cottage in the centre of the pretty village of Netherbury.
