Perhay is a delightful country cottage and has been refurbished by the owner to provide very good quality holiday accommodation in a beautiful rural setting only a few miles drive from the coast and the bustling West Dorset market town of Bridport. Located along a farm track in the small West Dorset hamlet of Waytown, about 5 miles from the coastal fishing harbour of West Bay and just a 10 minute walk from the original River Cottage where Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall`s TV career was first launched. The cottage is set in a small terrace of four former farm cottages in exceptionally beautiful and peaceful countryside. On a clear night the lack of light pollution makes it the perfect spot for star-gazing. The hamlet has a traditional country pub (about 5 minutes walk by footpath from the cottage) and is a haven for walkers with a network of footpaths covering the surrounding countryside. The cottage is just a short drive to the sea and the whole of the stunning West Dorset and East Devon coastline, famous for its Jurassic fossils, is within easy reach. There are many quiet villages to be discovered in the surrounding countryside and Bridport with its shops and cafes is just a few minutes drive away.

The charm and character of the original farm cottage has been retained as part of a sympathetic renovation - there is a flagstone floor downstairs and exposed beams throughout. The attractive master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and enjoys views across miles of open countryside. The second bedroom has space for a pull-out bed and there is a third single bedroom allowing the cottage to accommodate up to 5 guests in comfort. The cottage benefits from lovely rural views from most of the rooms and the rear patio (with bbq and furniture) backs onto open fields. There is also a small sunny garden at the front of the house. The cosy wood burner in the lounge will make this cottage a great choice for couples and families all year round and from time to time the friendly owners will have fresh produce from their garden available to purchase. Guests are also free to use a nearby field area for picnics.

Fantastic place in a great location. Mandy, the owner, next door couldn't have been more helpful. It's our 2nd visit there and we will definitely go back.

August 2017

Very enjoyable stay. Mandi and Jamie were on hand nearby if required and just let us enjoy the cottage. Very peaceful location. Hare and Hounds pub nearby was great, lovely friendly pub and community who made this holiday stay feel like a home from home. Highly recommended, the cows were great to see too! Thank you

June 2017

We found the owner extremely welcoming and very accomodating of our dates which fell outside the usual change over days. The location was just stunning. The cottage was a true haven of peace and tranquility, with far reaching views of the countryside, yet with very close access to Bridport and all the amenities of a large town. It was a perfect spot from which to explore many of the local sites of interest and coastline.

Immaculate cottage, very comfortable and lovely friendly owner who couldn't have been more helpful. Cows an added bonus. :)

August 2016

We had a lovely week in a beautiful cottage so thanks very much.

August 2016

A beautiful cottage set in a quiet location with everything needed for a week's stay for our family of five. The use of the field was fantastic and we had hours of fun playing badminton and running around outside. If there is nice weather, there are so many beaches and exciting places to visit. The hosts were extremely kind and we felt very at home. The washing machine and washing line were brilliant because the kids were filthy after days at the beach. Thank you.

May 2016

A most comfortable cottage in beautiful rural Dorset and a most friendly and helpful owner.

April 2016

Perhay Cottage is a beautiful cottage with excellent facilities & although in the Countryside is a good base for the local towns. The owners who live next door are very friendly & non-intrusive. Good walks over the fields if you are taking a pets. A very enjoyable holiday & I would not hesitate to go back. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to stay in Dorset.

March 2016

Access to field to exercise dogs morning and evening without having to go too far. Owner welcoming and around if needed but not intrusive. Very relaxing week!
