Excellent location everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. Lots of equipment to use. Beds were extremely comfortable. Garden was lovely to sit out in on an evening. Netflix available if you wanted to sign in. Everyone including the dogs had a great holiday would definitely go back there.

We had a comfortable stay in this well equipped, clean and characterful cottage in a peaceful village location. Well located for days out to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Disappointed that the local pub was not open but understandable in the circumstances. Really enjoyed our week here discovering the area.

We and our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped, comfortable cottage. With a great, dog friendly pub within walking distance and paths nearby to get you to the coastal path, it is the perfect place to stay and not have to use the car! We walked for miles most days and have returned home rested, relaxed and much fitter! The addRead moreed bonus of the warm utility room (also with washer/dryer) is brilliant for drying any coats/clothes should you get caught in the rain! Hide

Nice cottage. Stairs and low doorways could be a problem for some. Good location for travelling around the Dorset coast. Walking distance of great dog friendly pub.

A beautiful cottage, well equipped, great quiet location. An outstanding large enclosed garden, an amazing space for dogs. It should be noted that the 1.5 mile walk from the cottage to the coastal path is obviously hilly and quite hard going. Also it took us quite a while to find the cottage as the directions were inadequate.

Location

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.

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.
