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.


Perfect in so many ways
Lovely cottage which was warm and cosy even in January! It's located on a small road a few minutes drive from Bridport so it's close to all amenities including an excellent farm shop. The cottage has all anyone could need including fridge freezer, microwave and Wi-fi. Beds are comfortable and there is a dining room which we only used twice but would be good for families to play games. The Garden is small but enclosed and there is parking for two cars. The whole property feels spacious and light. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The only downside is that there are steps up to the bathroom and kitchen which might be an issue for the less mobile.

We were very pleased with the cottage, it was an ideal base for our holiday. It is in a nice quiet location but was only two miles to Bridport with all necessary amenities. Would definitely visit again.

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.
