A cottage in a lovely area of Dorset which is well placed for many lovely beaches along the coastline. Particularly lovely to be able to walk to the nearest beach Seatown in about 10-15 minutes from the cottage. Just to point out, although this cottage did not allow dogs the other holiday cottages close by did, so this may be a problem for some gueRead morests. Would recommend with reservations. Hide

Good location. Kitchen area worked well. Second double bedroom was a bit small but perfectly adequate. Good bathrooms.

Enjoyed our stay at Elm Barn. Loved the open plan kitchen/living area, although a slightly larger TV would have been nice. Beautiful coastline and good walks from cottage to Seatown and Golden Cap.

Reviewed by Mrs E Roberts 4th November 2018

Elm Barn was beautifully equipped and comfortably furnished, we were very happy with all aspects of the accommodation.

A lovely warm and spacious cottage. Great location for walks to the beach at Seatown and Golden Cap. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days here.

Reviewed by Miss M Dutton 14th October 2018

We were a couple staying at this cottage & was spacious. It was ideally located for plentiful walking with the coast and local village within 20 mins walk. It feels private with low maintenance garden & a great kitchen. This space would work well for a family too. The master is large with en suite but the second bedroom with no en suite is considerRead moreably smaller: this might concern two couples sharing. Hide

Reviewed by Mrs E Walker 26th September 2018

In a beautiful location with great walks to the beach on your doorstep. The open plan layout downstairs works well as a fabulous social space. However, holidaying as two couples we found the second double bedroom disappointingly too small for the price we paid.

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.
