Lovely cottage, well equipped and with lots of character. So close to the sea and to the main routes to the major coastal towns. Perfect. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Reviewed by Ms F McLeod 29th August 2018

Good size, very well equipped, ideal for our needs. It was good to find that cleaning materials, teatowels, toilet paper etc were provided. Only (minor) negative comment is that that the (otherwise excellent)shower jets the water at the wall, not towards the floor. James adjusted the pressure but this did not make much difference. There is a desigRead moren fault here. The whole family commented on this. There were supposed to be intructions for the equipment but we could not find them. Fewer wine glasses and more mugs would have suited us better. Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
