Wyke Dorset Cottages have been providing hand picked holiday cottages in Dorset for over 30 years and have some gorgeous properties suitable for everyone. They have a small friendly team on hand to answer any questions you have and to help you make the most of your holiday. One fantastic area to visit is Bridport and West Dorset.
Bridport, now known as the ‘Broadchurch Riviera’ following the hit TV drama that starred David Tennant, Olivia Coleman and Jodie Whittaker.
Bridport is a bustling market town with lots of independent shops, art venues and East Beach which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and forms one end of Chesil Beach that runs eastwards for 18 miles towards Portland with its steep, distinctive yellow cliffs.
A few miles inland from Bridport, is Beaminster and there are other towns nearby such as Lyme Regis,, Charmouth and Sherborne with its yellow stone 15th Century buildings, castle and impressive Abbey.
Actor Martin Clunes bought Buckham Farm near Beaminster in 2007 and hosts an annual fair every August in aid of local charities.
A self catering cottage is a perfect base to explore this area, you can come and go as you please, have as much room as you want and relax in privacy with your family. In case you were thinking of a romantic getaway for two, or meeting up with extended family and friends, Wyke Dorset Cottages have properties to accommodate you all!
You may be looking at visiting Dorset for one of the many music festivals in the area and want to extend your summer holiday after with a few days to recover! A local cottage holiday would be ideal, so make sure you have a look.
