Myrtle Cottage is a spacious and attractive Grade II listed stone and thatched cottage in the centre of the pretty village of Netherbury. It has a well-tended and secluded garden and even a shepherd's hut! The cottage has been furnished to a high standard and provides all modern comforts whilst retaining many period features such as the large inglenook fireplace with bread oven - a remnant from the days when Myrtle Cottage was the village bakery.
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.
Pear Tree Cottage sleeping four guests is also available to book at this location.
