Ideal cost cottage for a couple and their dogs! Friendly owner. Lovely little village and lots of beautiful places to visit. Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Lyme Regis are a must although they are all about an hours drive away but you pass though idyllic villages and towns on the way. Loved our holiday here.
