We really liked the cottage, it was nicely renovated yet still retained enough features to remind you that it would have been a farmworker's cottage. The beds were comfortable - good mattresses - this can't always be said of a rental cottage. It was an easy walk to everywhere in Burton Bradstock, including the beach. The road/lane at the front was Read morenoisy in the morning once the traffic got going. A lot of people clearly use the road leading to/from Shipton Gorge to get to and from the A road at the top. I noticed this as my husband and I had the front bedroom and due to warm weather we had the windows open overnight. Windows are double-glazed, I think, so when shut they do a good job of keeping the noise down. We enjoyed the garden at the back. Hide

On a second visit to this property it was absolutely splendid with some small new additions which were most useful .Well done Coastal Cottages staff this break lived up to our expectations.

Excellent accommodation, with good quality fixtures and fittings. Beautiful garden and outside eating area. Bathrooms and kitchen clean but living room and bedrooms would have benefitted from a more thorough clean (cobwebs on ornaments and dust under sofas and beds. There is limited parking and not adjacent to the property.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
