Lovingly presented with pastel tones and clean and fresh interiors, this characterful country cottage offers an instant home-from-home from the moment you cross its threshold.

From here you can also admire the incredible 18-mile Chesil Beach (6.5 miles), a fantastic part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site offering fantastic opportunities for fishing and simply relaxing on shingle shores.

Lovely cottage, very well equipped with pretty much everything you could need. Welcome goodies were a lovely surprise, there was comprehensive information on the cottage and surrounding areas which was great. Comfortable, cosy and relaxing. This felt like a year-round kind of accommodation.

Wonderful and comfortable cottage in a quiet area, with a very friendly and helpful host. A short drive to all the attractions in Weymouth and only a little further to Purbeck and the Jurassic coastline. We loved listening to the little stream burbling by the garden - great way to go to sleep!

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Bramble Cottage. Superb location close to so many different places meaning it has something for everyone. 10/15 minute drive to Weymouth beach which was amazing. The Old Ship Inn for food was 10/10 - highly recommended. When we arrived, everything was thought about, lovely welcome pack of local goodies which wasRead more a really nice touch. Thank you Liz for your superb hospitality and being so helpful during our stay. This cottage is 100% recommended. Hide

Beautiful cottage finished to a high standard and well equipped. The garden was very pretty and loved the sound of the small stream but after reading other comments took our own folding chairs.

Amazing cottage in a beautiful Dorset village. There are lovely views and walks around the cottage, and it is only about a 10min drive to Weymouth. The cottage is very well equipped and we enjoyed the stream running through the garden. The garden/sitting area wasn't huge but it was just enough to have a morning coffee there.

Cottage was full of character and clean but cold during evening and night. No comfortable garden furniture or privacy, only one garden sofa to cater for a house that accommodates 5 people. If you want television, limited channels, it didn't bother us as we are not into watching tv on holiday.

Great cottage, one of the best we have stayed in. The photos do not do it justice!! A small, well restored cottage, yet deceptively roomy inside. Contained everything we needed and more. There was always parking available. A short 12 minute drive to museums in Dorchester, and similar to the harbour in Weymouth. Lots to see and do within a 30 minuteRead more drive, recommend Portland Bill and the Tout Quarry Sculpture Park and Nature Reserve (free). Definitely hope to be back soon. 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.
