This beautifully renovated 300-year-old character cottage has been lovingly updated to offer modern amenities and a real home-from-home feel.

Enjoy fresh Dorset sea air from this charming cottage tucked away in the quiet, coastal village of Eype. Stroll down to the beach from this inviting home from home, which sleeps up to four guests. Relax on the secluded sands of Eype Beach, enjoy the glorious views out along the Jurassic Coast and watch the sun set over Lyme Bay. Return home to light the open fire or to recline in the hammock out in the enclosed garden.

Enjoy the warm embrace of this 300-year-old cottage from the moment you enter. Settle down on the comfortable seating in the lounge and bask in the heat of the crackling fire while you watch the Smart TV/DVD, which comes with Amazon Firestick, or listen to music on the Amazon Echo.

Head upstairs to the first floor to find both your delightful bedrooms and the family shower room. Spill out into the beautiful garden as often as possible; BBQ your supper out here on balmy evenings or enjoy a chilled glass of wine and take in the views.

Not suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs or hills. But the place was really nice and the walks amazing. Although we were disappointed in the beach as we were told gravel and sand beach and it was large pebbles!!! Please update the descriptions online.

A delightful cottage which has been updated with some lovely touches. Has all the home comforts you need, comfy beds and crisp clean bed linen.

It is a lovely, well equipped little cottage. It is a real home from home. The welcome package of bread, eggs, butter, milk, jam and small bottle of wine is a nice touch and very useful. It is small cottage and would not suit anyone with mobility difficulties. There are numerous walks direct from the cottage but it is a very hilly and in some placeRead mores very steep part of the world and a certain level of fitness is required to avail yourself of the walks. I have no hesitation in recommending it. 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.
