About Church Cottage

Situated in the heart of the village of Cattistock this cottage is sure to delight all who stay. Church Cottage is a new build thatch cottage holiday home adjacent to the church, assembled to a high standard to ensure clients can enjoy both modern convenience and character all in one. The interior is tastefully decorated with eclectic art from around the world, a relaxing sofa and tasteful throws add to your comfort. Mood lighting, a gas logburner and a huge 48" inch hidden flat screen TV in the lounge will make for cosy nights in during cooler months. French doors open onto a private and well screened terrace and cottage garden, bringing the outside in on those warm summers' days. There's also a beautiful further terrace at the rear of the garden with table and chairs for outside dining, with views over the churchyard and village.

Upstairs are two very comfortable ensuite bedrooms both with plenty of space and luxury facilities and of course a TV in each room! Comfort and style is guaranteed throughout.

Cattistock is a small pretty village nestling in the heart of typically rolling Dorset countryside with a well-stocked village shop and post office just 50m from the house. There's also a good pub serving excellent food for days you don't wish to cook or for a quick well deserved pint after a long walk in the Dorset hills. It's just a 30 minute drive to the spectacular cliffs and coast at West Bay made famous by the TV series 'Broadchurch' whilst Charmouth, famous for its fossils is only a 40 minute drive. The county town of Dorchester is 10 miles away and is well known as a thriving town with antique shops, coffee bars and regular farmers markets.

Church Cottage is an ideal retreat for couples or families with 2 children.

"Fantastic cottage in a charming Dorset village. Beautifully furnished and very well appointed, it had everything we needed."


"A gorgeous cottage in a beautiful village. Lots of lovely walks through the surrounding countryside and along the beaches."

Ashleigh & Michael

"The cottage has been a fantastic base: wonderfully comfortable, great beds, useful guide books and maps, super high tech equipment, well equipped and set in a lovely village. The Fox & Hounds is a great local – skittles alley in the back, good food, good beer and a snuggly fire."

The Brown's

"A beautiful home with fantastic amenities and superbly furnished. Lovely walk along the Church around the village takes you to the Fox & Hounds Pub. Pub is excellent – wonderful food and great service. Hope to return one day to further explore this amazing part of the world."


"The pictures of the cottage online did not do it justice. This is a beautiful cottage!! Superbly furnished and well stocked. Every part of it is so comfortable, from the great beds to the lovely sofas. The village has everything you could need. The kids loved the park and we all loved the village pub. The food was superb! The local shop is very handy and is well stocked and very friendly."

Donnie & Colin

"When you book online you can’t really tell what it’s going to be like until you arrive. Wow – what a great place. I think it will be difficult to find something you need which isn’t here. A great mix of artwork. Great village shop up the road and very friendly locals. We hope that everyone who comes here enjoys it as much as we did."
