Thatch Cottage is a beautifully renovated and traditional country home in the heart of the village of Powerstock, just a short distance from the coast at West Bay. The cottage has retained many traditional features from its past and is well placed to explore this part of West Dorset and its area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  This tasteful property resides in a picturesque location, near the church and local Inn. It has a cottage garden with a paved and gravel path that leads to a patio terrace which enjoys sunshine most of the day.  Well equipped with three bedrooms, a modern kitchen and bathroom, cosy lounge with separate diner. 

Powerstock is in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with wonderful walks up to Eggardon Hill Fort above the village.  The popular beach of West Bay is only 5 miles away on the Jurassic Coast and there are other attractions close by to suit all tastes including the Sub Tropical Gardens of Abbotsbury, fishing trips, fossil hunting at Charmouth, horse riding and much more.  The Three Horseshoes and The Marquis of Lorne offers good Dorset food, within walking distance of the cottage.

Lovely stay in well equipped cottage, just did not like the location of the cottage. Would use Toad Hall cottages again

May 2019

We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was perfect and the welcoming touches (Dorset apple cake, flowers and a pint of milk) were much appreciated. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage and garden but also spent a lot of time exploring the area: West Bay, Lyme Regis, Burton Bradstock, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Abbotsbury Swannery. A great holiday with perfect weather!

Very nice cottage in picturesque village, within walking distance of good pub (but no local shop)
