Betty’s Cottage is in a rural, peaceful location on a farm and is fantastic for those looking for a quiet holiday.

Converted to a high standard, these two barn conversions (Betty’s Cottage DWP, and Ruth’s Cottage DWQ) adjoin one another and are set on a working beef farm, which stands on the Jurassic seam. Offering peace and tranquillity, the setting is a delight for countryside lovers with wonderful open views to be enjoyed from the shared garden and barbecue area. Many footpaths lead from the farm and nearby lanes. The properties are set in the heart of Tamara Drewe country with some of the filming from the farm. The popular village of Evershot (Hardy’s Evershed in Tess of the D’Urbervilles) is 2 miles and offers a village pub, bakery, and hotel restaurant. Bridport and Dorchester are all a short drive away and offer individual shops, pubs and tea rooms. The Jurassic coast is 15 miles. Shop 2 miles. Note: Betty’s Cottage DWP and adjoining Ruth’s Cottage DWQ are ideal for larger family holidays or group breaks and may be booked together to sleep up to 12 people.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room with French doors. Kitchen. Conservatory/dining room. 3 bedrooms: 2 double, 1 twin with en-suite shower room and toilet. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet.

    This was our 4th visit to this cottage in 18 months so clearly we like it! This is a cottage where the owners hand over the keys and then leave you to enjoy your holiday for the entire week. Cottage always presented in a very clean and tidy state. It is a good all year round place to stay and the views are stunning all the time.

    Such lovely hosts. We are an Asian family and this is our first country side break. Therefore, we were concerned, as locals in these places are not much familiar to other back grounds. BUT Tom and Margaret were amazing,and very kind! Tom showed the kids the new calf that arrived on the day we were there. Both of them were very welcoming, and lastly a peaceful cottage with beautiful views and animals. We had a great time. Thanks !!

    We booked to stay in Betty's bungalow but ended up staying in Ruth's cottage next door! When we arrived we discovered that the bathroom didn't have a bath, just a large walk-in shower. Our daughter needs a bath so the owner immediately suggested we moved next door. The cottage was empty and there was a proper bath as well as a shower room and it proved to be ideal for our needs. So thank you Margaret for all your help in giving us a lovely relaxing holiday!

    A lovely property in a secluded setting, with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. Extremely clean and well presented, and very good value for money. Lovely to find a property that will accept three dogs! We will return!
