Very clean and well situated property stylishly decorated. However let down by lack of some basic equipment. Extremely uncomfortable bedroom- very small and bed positioned in corner of room which necessitated climbing over each other to get in and out . Lack of mains water also a real drawback.

Had a lovely mini break. Great hub for visiting lots of Devon & Dorset. Apartment is small but was fine for the 2 of us. Shame we couldnt use pool or hotel restaurant but that was down to covid restrictions . Would stay again if visiting Dorset again.

Oct2020: lovely stay, very clean, everything there (inc soap, antibac, cafetiere). There was plenty of hot water, an electric shower and excellent central heating keeping us nice and cozy. Phone reception was poor and there is no internet/wifi. TV was good with some channels, but no dvd player.

I loved where the cottage was and my husband and I enjoyed our walk down the hill for food and drinks (covid meant we couldn't use the hotel on site) and enjoyed the walk back up as well. This was a great base for an absolutely amazing holiday. The cottage had everything you needed for a relaxing break.

A lovely little cottage - very small, and was a fair walk from Lyme Regis, but it was nice! We didnt have access to the hotel due to COVID. There isnt WiFi, and depending on provider little signal, so great if you want a week disconnected.

A brilliant location within an easy walk of both Charmouth, for the beach, and Lyme Regis, for restaurants etc and also the nearby golf club bar. The inability, due to Covid, to use the hotel facilities was a shame and it should not have been left until days before our visit to notify us - reference to the facilities should have been removed from tRead morehe property description as it was a bit dishonest to leave it - our choice was definitely influenced by the facilities.

Lovely location and the cottage was nice. Only downside was no WiFi - this meant we had to rely on mobile data for remote working and Netflix in the evenings. This is the first place Ive stayed with no WiFi access, especially at this price. Theres also no drinking water so we had to keep buying more. There were 4 bottles when we arrived but that waRead moresnt enough for our week long stay. Hide

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.
