Property code: 77437

Enjoying a peaceful position, this former shooting lodge offers a charming getaway for large families and groups of friends who are seeking to escape to the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Set in a fantastic location for exploring the wonderful Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, escape with family, friends and dogs for a fun-filled holiday. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, one of which is housed in a separate lodge, enjoy spending sociable times together after beach days at nearby Eype (2 miles). On arrival, tuck into goodies from the thoughtful welcome pack before jumping into the hot tub for a relaxing night filled with bubbles.

Make yourselves at home at the end of the private lane and head straight for the lounge for a sumptuous unwind. Decorated in delightfully fresh tones, with floods of natural light, this space is perfect for relaxing in. Fire up the wood burner and sink into the large corner sofa to admire the views through the bay window. When it’s time to rustle up treats, the light, stylish kitchen has all you need to cook up a storm or head outside and get the BBQ sizzling for an al fresco night of sundowners. Call young guests out of the snug/games room and head outside for a feast and a soak in the hot tub, whilst they descend from the decking to the garden to bounce the night away on the trampoline under the stars. If you’re calling the lodge home, enjoy one last tipple on your raised decking before settling down for the night, or head back to the house and upstairs to one of three charming bedrooms for a peaceful sleep. There is ample off-road parking.

Give the dog a bone, pack up a picnic and travel 3 miles south of the beach at Eype. Sitting beneath the National Trust’s Golden Cap, this beach welcomes dogs all year round so you can have a ball and frolic in the sand together. Treat yourselves to a night off from the kitchen or pick up some delicious produce from the twice-weekly markets at Bridport (1.5 miles). Its eclectic arts scene, variety of shops and a handful of delicious eateries make this bustling town worth a trip. Just 3 miles from your door, visit Seatown for a day of fossil hunting.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Fantastic holiday! We did a Friday to Friday stay here and didnt want to leave. The views are beautiful, home is cosy with plenty of space for everyone. Hot tub was lovely, it was checked several times discreetly by maintenance. Cottage is down a very private road with very little noise nearby. Would highly recommend and hope to be back soon.

Well-equipped lodge in a stunning location. Great access to coast and many beautiful walks. Close to a good pub Don't rely on the shop for a good range of everyday groceries, but good selection of bread, veg and some fruit.

This was a great cottage, very spacious and comfortable with comfy beds and efficient showers. The location was wonderful; so peaceful and beautiful with the advantage of being able to access lovely walks and cycle trails right from the front door. The kitchen was especially well equipped and the hot tub and BBQ were enjoyed by all. Lovely to have Read morea separate cabin which we could retire to whilst the rest of the family wanted to stay up later. We all agreed that wed had a brilliant holiday 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.
