This converted barn is set in a pretty village close to the Golden Cap ( highest point on this part of the south coast). It is a great base to explore some of the most beautiful countryside and amazing views of the Jurassic coastline. There are several walks but those of us from the flatter parts of the country be prepared for what we called 'extreme walking' especially if you climb the Golden Cap from the west side but honestly we loved the walks that we did.
The barn is split into two one bedroom cottages, it is decorated beautifully and the fixtures and fittings are top quality, everything we needed had been thought of and the welcome pack biscuits didn't last long after a six hour journey. There is a Morrisons supermarket in the little town of Bridport only three or four miles along the A35. We also discovered a lovely little place called West Bay, there had been a recent cliff fall and we found some great fossils, it has a great little harbour and quite a few little food outlets and shops.
We both fell in love with this part of Dorset and we were so grateful that we found such a beautiful holiday cottage. Would we recommend it? Would we return to this particular cottage again? 100% Yes and Yes! What an amazing holiday and we can't wait to repeat it again soon.
Last minute getaway, the owner Chris emailed me personally to make sure I had everything needed due to my lack of organisational skills in booking so last minute. Easy check in and check out despite this, privacy given throughout although contact details always on hand if we had any questions. We took the walk to Seatown and Golden Cap from the back garden and it made for a fantastic day out, spent the rest of the time driving and exploring the Jurassic Coast in both directions.
The accommodation was modern, warm, and well thought out. All the necessities needed were there, parking was right outside. Thank you for saving me from a drab and eventless annual leave spent at home. We wish you all the best for the future and will definitely recommend to friends.
This is a fantastic location with great local amenities. The property is immaculate in every way. Everything is there that you could need and then some more. All the mod cons are spot on and the wifi is excellent. Fully equipped for cooking, relaxing and just generally having a wonderful time. Added extras include the wood pecker and pheasants. The farm shop opposite stocks great produce and really nice hot snacks, post office is handy for a paper and the buses are outside if you want to leave the car and have a really nice afternoon/evening in either Bridport or Lyme. I will be returning here and rate this at the top of any self catering we have ever experienced.
If you are looking for classy, well prepared accommodation for 2 in the Bridport area look no further!
This newly converted property is perfect for a relaxing stay with all modern, luxury facilities.
The accommodation is spacious and well designed to offer a very comfortable vacation.
Visiting from overseas, yet a Brit accustomed to the
" Grotty Cotty ," of yesteryear, the experience can be hit or miss! However, Pydelspring is most definitely a HIT!!!
I absolutely recommend this property, and look forward to staying on future visits.
In addition, the owner was extremely helpful- arranging for the delivery of the key to a local relative, responding to questions and including a luxury hamper and Christmas decorations for our arrival.
I have stayed at several other properties in the area and this is the BEST!
The photographs just do not do it justice. I found Pydelspring at the last moment and I am so glad I did.
It is brand new and the design was perfect for us. We have stayed in many, many self catering places but this is so far from a small roomed, difficult to keep clean cottage. It is light and spacious and really did have everything we needed.
The weather was kind to us, having a large garden in front of us was tremendous. We enjoy walking the coast so the location was perfect. We only walked a short way on this occasion but were able to access the coastal footpath at Golden Cap within about 10 minutes.
The kitchen is very well stocked, so cooking was certainly not a chore. The shower was hot and powerful, which was greatly appreciated after our walks.
This is a great place if you want to find somewhere that is relaxing yet has everything you need whether the weather is good or not.
Looking forward to returning soon.
