A superbly well equiped property in a small hamlet. All amenities close by. A great place to travel from either east, west or north. Superbly comfortable bed in the master and a great shower in the ground floor shower room(didn't use the bathroom one). Good secure parking in the garage and on site. Second visit but doubt it will be our last. CrowniRead moreng glory was the owner calling me on the way down to say its was quite warm and did we want fans in the bedroom. Excellent service! Hide

Cobblestones was perfect. Absolutely perfect. We had a fantastic week with our family including three small children. The accommodation was of an extremely high standard and so well considered and full of thoughtful touches for a family. We couldnt find fault. We had an amazing week in Upwey, exploring the local area and will definitely return. ManRead morey thanks! Hide

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.
