The Hive Beach Cafe is situated just to the south of Burton Bradstock and has magnificent views towards Lyme Bay. It prides itself on sourcing all of its food locally and is renown for its seafood. As the name implies it also functions as a cafe so you can call in for just a coffee and slice of cake. However my recommendation for the summer is to go there for breakfast! Served from 1000am the breakfast typically is a choice of a full English, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, eggs benedict or pancakes with lovely fillings and is absolutely delicious. It is worth booking a table as it can get quite busy. Afterwards you can head down to the beach or join the coastal footpath and turn east or west to work off the calories! For the very fit, it is possible to follow the coastal footpath for approximately 10 miles all the way back to your cottage (make sure you turn east!!) which is a lovely scenic walk and not too hilly.
The Elm Tree is a 16th Century village inn a short walk from our cottages in Langton Herring. The pub specialises in fresh fish and local game - the owners Debbie and Jamie also have a fish business called the Portland Scallop Company. There is a pretty sunken garden with palm trees and flowering shrubs which is ideal to sit out during the summer months. Dogs are welcome as long as they are well behaved and on a lead. Many of our guests have commented and given high praise to the Sunday lunch!
An award winning Pub close to the Jurassic Coast. The Kings Arms is highly recommended and only a short drive from the cottages. The dinning theme reflects its location of “coast and country” with all ingredients being sourced as locally as possible including local farms and growers with all dishes cooked to order. The pub has a lovely garden with a stream running through, ideal for sitting out on a summers day. It also has an outside wood fired oven for excellent pizzas. Expect a very warm welcome from the owners Lee and Jo. A very popular pub with many of our regular guests.
Well worth a visit if you are exploring Abbotsbury, the delightful Abbey house offers a fantastic lunch and afternoon tea - it is fully licensed so you can also enjoy a beer or glass of wine. The garden is delightful and you can sit outside and enjoy stunning views over towards the Old Tithe Barn, the Swannery and in the distance, the sea. I can definitely recommend the crab sandwiches for lunch and if you are still feeling hungry in the afternoon, try the “Pigs Delight”! A walk up the hill to visit St Katherines Chapel to enjoy the spectacular views will help burn off those calories! The owner Jonathan and his daughter Natasha are sure to give you a very warm welcome.
Why not follow the Coastal Footpath which runs outside our cottages at Langton and follow it to the west to Abbotsbury - it is a very easy walk (about 3 miles) and you will enjoy stunning views of the coastline and the surrounding countryside.
