We had a wonderful week, blessed by great weather! The property was beautiful, practical and incredibly well-equipped, with everything you could possibly need. We appreciated the garden that happily accommodated two dogs (also with brilliant walks for them right on the doorstep), plus highchair and travel cot for an 8-month-old baby. The location iRead mores also great - walking distance to shops and pubs, and a short drive to the seaside. Highly recommended! Hide

Specious and comfortable cottage in convenient location in Beaminster, short walking distance to restaurants shops and pubs, most dog and child friendly.

Great space both inside and outside. We loved the open and contemporary living space. The cottage is in a lovely small town with excellent shops for food. Our 2 dogs enjoyed the large garden and walks in the field next door

This is a lovely cottage in a peaceful location, yet within easy walking distance of shops, pubs & restaurants in Beaminster & good access to roads when exploring this area of Dorset. There are 3 good size bedrooms. The master is large with a chest of drawers for storage (no real hanging storage). The bed is very low so not ideal for those with mRead moreobility problems. The twin is a good size with a chest of drawers and a baby changing top for those with young children. The other double is a good size again. There are 2 bathrooms - one large one with a bath, toilet and sink. The other smaller one is a shower with toilet and sink. Both are closest to the 2nd main bedroom and the twin. There is also a separate toilet downstairs. Downstairs is large and open plan with lovely flagstone flooring and access from the sitting area into the lovely large orchard garden. The kitchen is a good size and well equipped although it would have been nice to have a couple more pans as the 2 that were there were very large (a milk pan or two would be great). The hallway is large, with a sofa and lots of space to hang wet coats and leave shoes. The downstairs loo is off the front as you enter. We had an energetic 20 month old with us and while the layout was great, it wasn't ideal as there are many single steps and different levels downstairs with sharp flagstone edges and we had to constantly watch her to make sure she didn't fall down and hit her head. From a parent point of view with young kids, it would be better if it was all on one level. A high chair was provided for eating and the dining area was lovely and the table plenty big enough. The TV control wasn't working when we arrived, and all the way through and the dishwasher door was very hard to open and use although we were assured it was all fine after texting the owner. We opted to wash up instead. Tea and coffee was provided along with a packet of biscuits. We didn't use the travel cot as they couldn't provide dimensions (for bedding not provided), so we brought our own. For ref, it's a long thing cot and looked to be in excellent condition. We did have to pick up dog poop from the garden immediately on arrival in more than one place. Large dog!! There is no door separating the downstairs from the stairs up fyi. Plenty of parking outside - the drive up the lane to the house was very narrow and we did go out with pruners and cut back some of the greenery that scratched the car every time we drove down. The gardener cut the grass the day before we left so was well maintained. The dog could get out and did on a couple of occasions. Came straight back though. Saw deer in the garden twice. Wifi was included but not secure and reception was a bit hit and miss. Overall, we had a lovely time but wouldn't go back with young kids for the reason mentioned above. Hide

Bramley Cottage is in an idyllic location and has been sensitively and creatively designed. It is quiet and restful.

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.
