Pear Tree Cottage (Dorset) details
This Grade II listed stone and thatched cottage dating from the 16th Century is full of period charm. Pear Tree Cottage has been refurbished to the highest standard and features a light and bright sitting room with lots of books and an open log fire, and a spacious kitchen/dining room with garden views. With one double and one twin bedroom, the cottage is the perfect size for families of four. Pear Tree Cottage has a beautiful fully enclosed garden with table and chairs for outdoor dining.
Netherbury was the home of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s original ‘River Cottage’ and was the village of Cloton in Thomas Hardy’s short story ‘Destiny and a Blue Cloak’. There is a pub in the neighbouring hamlet of Waytown a short walk away and there are good pubs and restaurants in the attractive towns of Beaminster (2 miles) and Bridport (4 miles). Bridport has a twice weekly market and a lively arts and music scene. Situated in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Netherbury makes an ideal base for walking and cycling and is close to the Jurassic Coast with all its associated amenities for sailing, fishing, fossil collecting and much more.
Myrtle Cottage sleeping six guests is also available to book at this location.
