About us

We, James and Heidi Briscoe, bought The Nook in May 2015. Before then it belonged to the same family for nearly sixty years and was in desperate need for some modernisation and renovation. It has taken us nearly a year of planning, deciding, changing and hard labour. But finally a once dated, dark cottage has been transformed into a light, airy and comfortable home. A holiday home for us and our children to cherish and enjoy for many years to come. And we would like to share the beauty of the place and it’s surroundings with you!

Dorset offers endless things to do and explore. The Jurassic Coast line is breathtaking come rain or shine and no matter the weather, an ice-cream is a must (according to our kids!). Try salted caramel…

Over the years we have fallen in love with this place. It’s lovely people, appreciation for local produce and a more relaxed pace of life. Even though we are “part-timers” as the locals like to call us, they could not have made us feel more welcome.

Spoil yourself with a lovely holiday at The Nook. The kids room accommodates four children comfortably. Two further double bedrooms provide ample space for two sets of families or friends. There is a comfortable bathroom next to the kids room and a shower room on the ground floor. The large garden is terraced and invites children to play, explore and imagine. And, with a bit of searching, they might even discover the bug hotel and the hedgehog home.
