The cottage is very nice clean and has all the equipment you need to make the holiday hazel free. We will definitely be booking again as we really enjoyed the area and the village.

The cottage is very cosy and we had a great holiday. Parking wasn't a problem for us, as we took a small car and were able to park it in the garage. This made our week easier, as we didn't need to think about parking.

The cottage is located in a lovely little village, and near many attractions. It has everything you need, with a village store only 5mins walk away, the local pub is a few minutes drive away.

This was a repeat stay at this lovely cottage and as before we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Cordwainers is pretty and very comfortable. It is so pleasant having a garden that one can sit and eat when the weather is fine. The village is delightful with a well stocked shop and the nearby Sailor's Return a great place to drink or dine.

Reviewed by Mr G Huxford 19th November 2018

The cottage was perfect for what we wanted and we found it was in really good condition. There was ample space downstairs and the upstairs was very comfortable. Location wise it was perfect for quick access to Lulworth and the coast and not far to explore more of the Isle of Purbeck.

The cottage was absolutely lovely, set in a small village with a shop and walkable pub. It was clean, well presented and very well equipped. There was garden furniture and garage parking for a smaller sized car.

Beautiful old cottage which was very clean and comfortable. Ideal location for exploring Purbeck region and very close to Lulworth Cove.

Reviewed by Mr G Douglass 31st August 2018

Clean, comfortable, spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Some chairs in the bedrooms would have been nice, and a few more pictures on the walls to make it feel a bit more homely, but these are very minor quibbles about a very nice cottage that we were very happy to stay in. One other thought, a bit of information about the history of the cottage Read morewould have been nice. Given it's age, and the fantastic fireplace, there are obviously stories to be told. 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.
