There’s also a convenient downstairs WC. Upstairs you’ll find an inviting double bedroom with views of the village’s famous 15th/16th-century church. A second bedroom, with a traditional beam, can be turned into a twin or double as required – just mind your head in the eaves. The bathroom, with shower over the bath, is also on this level. To the rear of the property, you’ll find a delightful, private walled garden, with terrace, BBQ and gravelled area. A charming summer house offers a welcome spot to rest. Parking is available on the lane.

Just 11.5 miles away you’ll find Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast of England - the panoramic views make it worth the climb!

An ideal base for visiting the whole of Dorset, in a beautiful village with excellent amenities surrounded by stunning countryside. The property itself was of a very high standard with a generous array of welcoming local produce.

A lovely two bedroom cottage with spacious and well equipped kitchen diner, lounge with a living flame fire, comfy beds, nice garden too. The owners live next door and go beyond the call of duty to make you feel most welcome with homemade jam, scones and clotted cream (they even went on the search for vegan friendly gifts to accommodate my partnerRead more) but then leave you to get on with your trip thereafter (though they are always on call if you need them). Beaminster is a nice little town 15 mins drive from the coast with 3 pubs, a lovely vegetarian cafe and a couple of restaurants as well as other shops Hide

Everything was as advertised - only better. It is a very well presented cottage, as well as being extremely cosy & homely. The weather we had during the week left a lot to be desired, but getting back to such a welcoming cottage after a few hours exposure to the wind & rain, made the whole experience worthwhile. We liked its location, facing the cRead morehurch, & adjacent to several walks & bridle paths. Our first stay in Beaminster, but we liked it a lot, and this part of Dorset is wonderful.

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.
