New for the 2018 Season

Short Breaks available all year

Nestled in the grounds of Whatley House but quietly tucked away from the main residence this ground floor conversion is approached through a private entrance shared only with the owner. The studio-style accommodation has a light and airy atmosphere and is located a short walk from the town centre of Beaminster.  Newly decorated with exposed beams this property is ideal for couples looking for a quiet and relaxing break whilst still being just a short drive from the picturesque coastal town of Lyme Regis and the famous Jurassic Coast with its bustling sea vollage of West Bay and nearby Bridport town, famous for its weekly market.

The property can be used as an ideal location for exploring the whole of the Dorset area, and very well located for touring West Dorset and East Devon. An easy walk along to the town centre with its selection of restaurants, shops, pubs and tea rooms, means you can forget the car and completely relax.

Please note: This property is only suitable for a maximum of 2 adults and a small dog.

This is an ideal base for those who don't plan to be doing lots of cooking while on holiday particularly as the town has restaurants, cafes, pubs and tearooms. The kitchenette has a two ring hob with small oven, toaster and kettle that will suit many guests preparing breakfasts and simple meals but serious cooks need to be aware of the limited options. The bed/sitting room includes a double bed and two single chairs, small dining table for two, Flatscreen TV and Freesat channels.  Ensuite shower room.


Gravel seating area with bistro table and chairs and accompanying garden bench.  The owner is happy for guests to enjoy the garden through the adjacent gate.

Private parking on a gravel drive.

June 2019

Whilst it is a small studio it was in excellent condition. The bed was very comfortable with good quality bedding. Furnishings were very well chosen. As we tend to go out and about all day the size was sufficient for our needs. A very enjoyable week.

January 2019

Very clean on arrival, excellent location and nicely hidden away. The owner was lovely and greeted us. Bed was very comfy, kitchenette was small but perfectly usable and bathroom was spacious. Ideal for couples wanting to explore the local area.

September 2018

The accommodation was outstanding...small but had everything that you could want and need...absolutely perfect. Mr Bicknell, the owner, couldn’t have been more welcoming and we had a fabulous holiday. 5* for everything and would highly recommend.

June 2018

Property was as described in the write up and proved a most satisfactory base for our short break which we thoroughly enjoyed

April 2018

yes it was a lovely stay and we highly recommend it

March 2018

We were very pleased with the cottage. It is small but completely adequate. I would rate it as value for money. One minor hiccup when we arrived, no hot water. Notified the owner and it was attended to promptly ( an electrical wiring problem ). Would we book it again - definitely.
