We had a lovely stay at Ambers. The village is beautiful and everyone very friendly. The cottage is near to the local pub which has outside eating and drinking. The beds are comfy and once we got the heating on the cottage was warm and cosy. Great to have a lovely sunny garden at the back and somewhere to eat outside . There was plenty of choice onRead more the TV for the evenings with Amazon Prime. We walked to Bridport to eat out which took about 35 mins. Hide

Great location, with good walks nearby and Crown Inn pub doing very good food. Cottage is really well equipped for doing own meals. Low beams are a 'feature' so beware if you're over 6'.

A lovely cottage in a very pretty village. It was well equipped with plenty of crockery, utensils etc. It doesnt have central heating and when we arrived it was very cold. There were individual heaters which didnt take too long to heat up. The bed in the master bedroom was large but very hard. There is only a shower over the bath which wasnt great Read moreand as my husband is 62 he couldnt stand under it! That said....we enjoyed our stay here....it was in a great location. Hide

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.
