This property enjoys a great town centre location in a no-through back lane and with the rare benefit of a parking space. It was originally part of a former coaching inn known as 'The Seven Stars' and provided accommodation for the coachman and an archway to the stables. The inn closed in the 1960's and was converted into 2 properties. The cottage has main walls of solid stone, part rendered under a slate roof. It is Listed Grade II of Architectural or Historic Importance. The accommodation is very spacious and has a front aspect over Barrack Street with distant country views. There is the benefit of gas fired central heating with a combi boiler.

A special feature is the west facing private courtyard and a private parking space.

Equally ideal as a permanent home, second home or long term/holiday letting investment. Viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agents.


The purchase price includes the fitted carpets, curtains, light fittings, gas cooker and fridge. Some of the furniture is available if required.



The cottage enjoys a walled sheltered and private west facing courtyard featuring the original stable cobbles.


The cottage stands on a corner of Barrack Street and Rax Lane in an extremely convenient location near the town centre and within only a few minutes' walk of the main shopping centre. Bridport is a thriving and historic market town with the centre being made up of Victorian and Georgian properties.
