This welcoming, semi-detached cottage on the edge of Dottery, West Dorset, sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

The Old Smith is an attractive, semi-detached farm cottage set on the edge of the small sleepy hamlet of Dottery near Bridport in West Dorset. With a king-size double and twin bedroom, the property can sleep up to four people. There's also a ground floor bathroom, along with a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with woodburner. Outside, there is off road parking for 2 cars. The Old Smithy sits amongst charming countryside, with lots of pretty villages nearby.


Truly of a very high standard, this cottage must rank as the best of the best. This cottage leads the way, others should try and follow!
Mr Ayres

Nice location, comfortable chairs and beds, very clean and cosy. The heating was excellent.
Mr Tyler

We have had a very enjoyable week at The Old Smithy and would both recommend this cottage and would come back again ourselves. It is very well maintained and I have no complaints at all, our holiday here was excellent.
Mr Bush

The Old Smithy was lovely, with an old, quaint feel to it. The log burner was lovely and kept us all warm and snug. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. The Old Smithy is in a quiet area, near the town in a pretty hamlet. It was easy to find and had a good little garden and easy parking.
