This romantic retreat lies within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sleeping four guests, it’s ideal for couples or friends who love the countryside. Two dogs are also welcome, so you’ll be glad to find country lanes right on your doorstep. The friendly owners, who live next door, have added every creature comfort for a homely ambience. You’re within half a mile of a popular historic pub with food, and 2 miles from the charming town of Beaminster where you’ll find a bakery, butcher’s, and greengrocer’s, along with an array of independent shops.

Enter into the welcoming hallway of this country-style property and take two steps towards the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. After a day’s hike, freshen up in the downstairs shower room, and step into the living room to relax by the warming wood burner; or enjoy a good book in the TV snug upstairs. The kitchen is well-equipped for family mealtimes, while there’s a private enclosed BBQ seating area outside, and a summertime garden room in the shared owners’ lawned garden. If you can tear yourself away from this floral idyll, gather together for family mealtimes. When night falls, you’ll find a ground-floor double bed area, and a king-size bedroom upstairs.

To the west, there are two further Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to explore, East Devon (13 miles), and the Blackdown Hills on the Devon and Somerset borders (14 miles). Discover the site of an Iron Age hill fort at Pilsdon Pen (3.5 miles), and wildlife trails in Ham Hill Country Park (15 miles). Visit Bridport’s market town and literary festival (6.5 miles).

This is far and away the best cottage we have ever stayed in.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful area of Dorset. Very comfortable with all you need for a great holiday. Our only concern was with the garden which is very steep set up in terraces with a stream at the bottom. There were areas where our dog could get through so we felt unable to let him run free. Such a shame as it really was a lovely garden.

I found my stay at Heartsease cottage very comfortable and relaxing despite the dreary weather. The cottage is well equipped and the log fire so cozy on a cold, rainy day. The cottage is set within a lovely village with a good pub close by and lots of fresh air and country walks. I will be back.
