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. The owners were extremely helpful, without being overbearing in the slightest.In short - we loved this cottage. 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.

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.
