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. There is load of space which was lovely and whilst dogs are clearly welcome (Suzy loved it) there was absolutely no evidence apart from the food and water mat that there had been previous canine guests. Ann Boge is a kind and attentRead moreive owner who met us on arrival which was greatly appreciated and was on hand throughout the week. Hide

it was exactly as advertised. Very spacious and had more than enough of everything you needed, the kitchen was so well stocked with every gadget you needed to feel at home (and more). The garden was so big and ideal for our dog who was secure and free to have a good wonder around. We found the cottage to have that very special WOW FACTOR to make a Read morevery special break.

Really spacious, clean, beautifully equipped and furnished. The owner was very helpful, pleasant and friendly - literally on call but absolutely not intrusive. It was absolutely lovely.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
