The bathroom (cant really call it that it is smaller than my larder) is ludicrous it seriously needs a rethink you cant get a wash the basin is a cloakroom basin not a bathroom basin, the shower you cant move in it which makes hair washing etc v difficult & we are both small people, god help people of a larger size ! Renew the steps down to the garRead moreden they are too high & very bendy. The garden furniture cheap & old & v dirty hadnt even been wiped over for our arrival let alone anyone else. Hide

Beehive Cottage was perfectly situated for coastal walking.as well as having ample choice for rainy day activities. The cottage, which is basically a rectangular space, is very cleverly apportioned between bedroom, kitchen bathroom and living area. There is a deck area which enables one to stargaze or just enjoy the view. Beehive is comfortable andRead more cosy and easily accommodates 2 people and a dog. A most wonderful place to stay and our hosts left a lovely welcome gift. 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.
