A coastal cabin set beneath the much photographed Golden Cap. With easy access to the dog-friendly beach, village centre and the South West Coast Path, it’s the ideal base for a relaxing break.

Fantastically located on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this home is perfect for lovers of the great outdoors and their dogs. Sleeping four across two bedrooms, find yourselves less than half a mile from the local beach where you can sprawl on the sand and splash in the sea all day long.

Stepping inside this single-storey property, make yourselves at home as you choose your bedroom and unpack. Pop the kettle on in the kitchen and brew some tea to enjoy together whilst you make plans for your holiday. With all you need to feed four hungry mouths and those of your four-legged friends, the kitchen is a lovely space in which to spend time experimenting with flavours and family favourites. Bright, light and open plan, the lounge/diner is perfect for plating up a delicious feast and is a great spot in which to unwind after beach days and time exploring. The pair of sofas invite you to sink down and switch off in front of the TV, or put on a DVD for a film night with plenty of treats. Post-film, savour a tipple on the enclosed decking, where a BBQ and sun loungers are the perfect ingredients for a sundowner evening alfresco. Two tranquil, pretty bedrooms offer you some peace and quiet and are lovely rooms in which to rest your head for the night before you rise and shine and freshen up in the stylish shower room. There is off-road parking for one car.

Sitting beneath the towering Golden Cap, the local beach at Eype is a wonderful destination for all the family, welcoming dogs all year round and less than half a mile away. Enjoy a day on the sand and tuck into a tasty picnic or treat yourselves to dinner at the village pub or the tearooms. Just 7.5 miles from home, Stonebarrow Hill is a great starting point for a hike with the dog and leads to over 25 miles of well-trodden trails which wind their way around the National Trust’s, Golden Cap estate.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

In an amazing location, perfectly positioned for beach walks and exploring the Dorset coast, this is a beautiful, solidly built cottage, not a beach chalet, but a real home. It is tastefully decorated, airy and light throughout, with a very well equipped kitchen and SUPER clean everywhere ( big thanks to Sharon, our housekeeper ). The bedrooms, louRead morenge and dining area are all spacious and very comfortable. We were absolutely delighted with our find and very happy to spend the week here. Hide

Great location, although the sea maybe a little rough for little ones, it was fine for older teens. Dog friendly beach and chalet, our little dog could not escape! Walk to West Bay over the hill was fine for most ages and fitness levels as there are benches along the way. Gluten free ice cream and chips available for coeliacs in West Bay and the weRead morelcome hamper was great and had gluten free crisps in it also ( perfect for our teenager). Perfect getaway. 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.
