This exceptional Georgian-era house is situated close to the centre of the Dorset market town of Bridport. With its tasteful blend of classical and modern styles, both the interior and exterior of the property have been designed to impress. With nine individually decorated bedrooms, gravel covered gardens in a European-style, and social rooms large enough for big gatherings, this Dorset townhouse is a superb choice for those looking to celebrate an occasion with friends and family, or to simply enjoy a reunion. To make the experience even better, there is a games room for those of a light competitive nature, and a cinema room too for those that love a bit of visual/audio escapism.

Throughout the house, you will encounter comfortable and inviting rooms for you to unwind, relax and play in to your heart’s content. The house consists of a spacious dining room incorporating a large table and chairs able to seat the whole group, and a separate small comfortable seating area centred around the electric brand fireplace. There is a sitting room with TV and ample seating for you to catch up on some films, TV shows or read a book on. For serious movie fans, the cinema room is a great place to maximise the experience, replicating that which you’d find in a cosy arthouse theatre; it has top of the range speakers and sharp image resolution. You and your guests can also play games in the garden room if the weather closes in. The kitchen is well-equipped for meeting the catering needs of extended groups of diners. A range-style cooker, oven and hob and lots of work space give you lots of room for meal preparation.

The bedrooms are located across both levels of the holiday home with two on the ground floor – both of which have en-suite bathroom facilities. The remainder of the nine bedrooms are situated on the first floor, all individually decorated with colourful fabrics and carpets throughout. There are views of the walled garden from the rooms too.

Bridport is close to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a beautiful area associated with fossils and the South West Coast Path. Red cliffs characterise this part of Dorset and there are many wide-open spaces where you can visit the earthworks of Iron Age forts and more. Visit the towns of Blandford Forum, Dorchester, Wareham and Swanage to get the full flavour of this wonderful part of the British Isles.

Be sure to seek out and visit local coastal spots such as Eype Beach, West Bay Beach and Hive Beach at Burton Bradstock for a day out by the sea. Avid walkers will enjoy the path over the peak of Golden Cap. On a clear day, you can see across to Lyme Bay and Dartmoor from the top; at 191 metres it is also the highest point on the south coast of England too. Experienced ramblers may wish to continue along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, or the other way on the South West Coast Path. Other large towns in the area include Wareham, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Blandford Forum, Swanage, Poole and Bournemouth.
