A charming semi-detached cottage in the quaint village of Eype provides a homely base with original features for exploring the area, either on your own or with your dog.

Surrounded by stunning countryside yet just half a mile from the shingle beach at Eype is this charming semi-detached cottage. One of West Dorset’s most beautiful villages, Eype boasts pretty thatched cottages, a popular pub, a tea room and a wonderful sand and gravel beach and distant view of Golden Cap.

Inside, a charming lounge/diner has been tastefully updated with modern decor that blends perfectly with the large inglenook feature fireplace.

Cozy cottage with a great garden space to make the most of the sunshine and views. Felt like a home from home space with all the comforts we needed for a relaxing family holiday. The location in Eype Village is accross from the New Inn pub with good food and drinks and the beach is only a 15 min stroll down the hill. The owners where very helpful wRead morehen needed and there is good local information provided in the cottage. Will definately look to stay again when in Dorset. Hide

The cottage is in a great location, the gated arden is not secure at the end so be aware if you take a dog that likes to explore. Dogs are also not allowed upstairs. The beach down the road is great and lots of nice places to visit around the area.

Very narrow lane to the cottage and surprisingly busy with traffic. Be prepared to back up narrow lanes if necessary.

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.
