A highly individual end of terrace cottage which was originally one of the farm buildings belonging to the former Bishops Farm and enjoying a large south facing garden in a peaceful and attractive setting.


A highly individual end of terrace cottage which was originally one of the farm buildings belonging to the former Bishops Farm. It comprises one of just six properties which were converted in the mid 1980s, initially used as a small holiday complex and then all sold off and are now privately owned. The property was believed to have formally been the pig sty and when it was converted, a two storey rear extension was added. It has main walls of brick and stone under slate and concrete tiled roofs.

The cottage has been under the current ownership since 2001 and would now benefit from general updating. There is oil fired central heating via a Rayburn cooker range and part UPVC sealed unit windows, UPVC external stable doors and a farmhouse style kitchen with stoneware sink and integrated dishwasher. The host of character style features include a large brick fireplace with woodburner, exposed beams, colour washed stone and cottage doors.

The good sized accommodation extends to:

Ground floor- canopy porch, living room, kitchen/dining room.

First floor- landing with linen cupboard, three bedrooms and bathroom.


The courtyard is shared by the six properties and there is off road parking adjoining Piglets with a side gate leading to a basic timber shed/store (offering potential for demolition to create additional parking or a garage/carport subject to any necessary planning).

The rear garden is a particular feature, extending around 100 ft depth, south facing and very private. There is an adjoining paved terrace leading to a large lawn with a whole range of shrubs and through an arbor leads to a further garden with timber shed, former vegetable garden and small pond.


Piglets enjoys a picturesque courtyard setting in the old part of Bradpole village close to open countryside. Useful nearby amenities include a local post office, butchers, public house, church and village hall. It is within an Area of Outstanding natural Beauty (AONB) with attractive rolling countryside and many footpaths virtually on the doorstep.

The thriving Georgian market town of Bridport is only about 1 mile to the south providing excellent shopping and business facilities together with a leisure centre. The beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast is only a few miles away at west bay with its picturesque harbour, bathing beaches, golf course and the south west coastal footpath.

The larger centres of Dorchester, Yeovil and Weymouth are within 20-30 minutes' driving distance with mainline rail services.
