Welcome

To Wisteria Cottage Bed & Breakfast in West Dorset. This delightful B&B is set in tranquil rolling countryside enjoying a very quiet position, yet is only two minutes drive from the A35 coast road. We are situated in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the historic towns of Lyme Regis and Bridport, just minutes drive from the World Heritage listed Jurassic Coast and within easy walking distance of Golden Cap – the highest headland on the South Coast. Wisteria Cottage’s comfortable en-suite rooms and stunning countryside views will help you to unwind. Our aim is for you to enjoy yourself in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The non-smoking bedrooms overlook the beautiful and un-spoilt Marshwood Vale and the picturesque village of Whitchurch Canonicorum – in medieval times one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the country. The parish church featured in the recent BBC TV Series Secret Britain and the two other Dorset locations in the programme, Golden Cap and Hell Lane Holloway are within walking distance. There are many things to see and do, but if you don’t feel like driving there are plenty of fantastic walks in all directions.   The tranquility of our location and absence of excessive light pollution make for breath taking night skies. There is a public house within walking distance offering a friendly welcome, home cooked food and good beer. We pride ourselves on the quality of our breakfasts and use locally produced ingredients wherever possible, (Dorset is justifiably famous for the quality and range of its produce). Off road parking and secure cycle storage are available and we also loan binoculars, fossil hunting equipment and walking guides free of charge to our guests. Wi-Fi facilities.  ...

Visit Britain Breakfast Award There are a number of inns and restaurants in Lyme Regis, Bridport and the surrounding area.

It’s an unpretentious friendly local and offers good locally produced beer (Palmers of Bridport) and food at reasonable prices. Whether you visit us in order to walk, cycle or generally explore, there are many things to see and do in one of the prettiest parts of England. Why not start off right from our front door with a six minute walk to the top of Hardown Hill (National Trust) to enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of three counties, Lyme Bay, stretching from beyond Portland Bill in the East, right across to Dartmoor.

What our guests say

WISTERIA COTTAGE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER REVIEW JULY 2005… Sitting on a hill above the village of Whitchurch Canonicorum – so called because St Candida is the only parish church that still retains the bones of its saint – the cottage is as idyllic as it sounds, but like all good B&Bs, it’s the owner who really makes the stay. Dave Green is passionate about the area and plied us first with tea, then wine, as he waxed lyrical about big skies, swimming in the sea and “the many little surprises” he’d discovered since moving down from London three years ago. Surprises like Mr Shigeaki Takezoe who runs Hell Barn Cottages near Bridport and offers self-catering guests home-cooked Japanese meals, or the fact that Georgi Markov [the murdered Bulgarian dissident] is buried in the churchyard at Whitchurch Canonicorum. We spent the evening with Dave, moving from his terrace when it got too cold, to his local, the Five Bells, a no-frills, one-room pub with a suitably eccentric cast of regulars. We are also a recommended Bed and Breakfast in Michel Roux’s “Gourmet Traveller” to West Dorset in Food and Travel Magazine, October 2006. We have a number of recent reviews posted by guests staying here. To read them click on the logo or link:...
