Tom and Louisa met whilst pursuing careers on super-yachts based in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Pacific and Asia. Louisa, as a chef, and Tom as an Engineer and Captain. After 10 years working at sea they married and a couple of years later started a family. Louisa becoming shore-based, decided to start her catering business to work around the children growing up whilst Tom headed back to work at sea.
The need for more space saw a move to Barton Cottage.
Louisa grew up in a Bed and Breakfast and it seemed like a natural move to create one here utilising all the years of catering and hospitality experience.
The 18th Century Thatched Cottage needed a lot of work to make it what it is today and we continue to update and evolve.
Tom, Louisa, Oliver and Emilia look forward to welcoming you to stay with us all here at Barton Cottage and wish you a lovely stay here on the Jurassic Coast with all it has to offer.
