Lovely warm house clean and comfortable. Wonderful views from windows peaceful and great location bus stop across the road, so great if you want a rest from driving. Parking is a bit of a problem if you have more than one car. The kids will love the animals in the fields and there is some lovely walks locally.

We could not fault this holiday accommodation. Warm,comfortable, everything required was there, with quality equipment. Location is excellent, a bus stop obviously travelling in both directions was a few minutes walk away, leaving the car was a bonus.

Burr Bank is a lovely comfortable house and had plenty of space for the six adults in our party. It is superbly furnished and equipped. The local shop was useful and we used the buses so we didn't have to drive every day. The house is well situated to tour the local area. Overall we would highly recommend.

The house was delightful. It was clean and well equipped. The room overlooking the garden was perfect for sitting, relaxing and watching the birds. It was also extremely useful having the three bathrooms particularly having two young grandchildren. An ideal house for an extended family.

We really enjoyed our stay at Burr Bank. The rooms were all comfortable and the cottage had everything we needed. We especially loved taking a coffee in the sun room overlooking the garden and watching the birds on the feeder. After lockdown this was a welcome break, the owners were friendly and informative through text conversations.

Location

Map
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.
