Affording sea glimpses from the garden and only 0.5 miles from Charmouth Beach, this pretty self-catering cottage invites guests to explore Dorset’s natural gems and enjoy a luxurious base.

With great access to Dorset’s country and coast, visit one of the year-round dog-friendly beaches like Monmouth Beach (3.5 miles) or Church Cliff Beach (2.5 miles). Come rain or shine, the opportunity for salt and vinegar-soaked fish and chips overlooking the sea should not be missed, followed by an ice cream if you’ve still got room. To make you sure you are well-stocked throughout your stay the village shop is only 300 yards away, whilst the dog-friendly village pub is 50 yards away and offers a warm fire in winter and beer garden in summer.

Whether you are holidaying with children or catching up with friends, this property has space and occasion for all generations, two-legged and four. Spread over three floors, the downstairs is home to the main living areas. For lazy mornings with a cup of tea and relaxed evenings with a glass of vino, park up in the living room and bury yourself in one of the comfortable seats. Providing ample entertainment in the form of books and a TV with streaming software and Wi-Fi, evenings in are taken care of. When stomachs begin to growl, make way for the well-provisioned kitchen. With one end home to all sorts of mod cons and appliances like a dishwasher and oven, the far end is accessed via a step up and has a washing machine and microwave. When you are ready to gather around and share plates, the dining room features a family-sized dining table and chairs. With original floors, wood burner and generous supply of logs, this room is particularly atmospheric in winter and ideal for dinner parties at home. When you are ready to explore the first floor, a steep staircase with rope handrail takes you to the first floor WC and then, via a couple more steps, the two double bedrooms and family bathroom. Continuing the traditional themes, each first-floor bedroom has a  feature Victorian fireplace and showcases authentic quirks. Following another steep, winding staircase with rope handrail, you will pop out onto the second floor. In an open-plan design, the roof space has been cleverly repurposed to fit the master bedroom. A light-filled room, this bedroom has a 6ft double bed and benefits from crisp, clean tones, sea views and an en-suite.

With plenty to do inside and out, the cottage has an enclosed rear courtyard accessed via a step with potted plants, log store with freezer and seating area with chiminea – ideal for evenings of socialising. As well as this courtyard, a further garden lawn with sea glimpses, decked area and summer house is set apart from the house on the far side of the parking area, suitable for small/medium sized cars.

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

A lovely property. Spacious, well equipped in ideal location

Reviewed by Mrs V Johnstone 4th November 2018

Lovely cottage, but parking was very difficult; through a narrow archway then opposite another property so had to shuffle backwards and forwards to get out. Did not park there as too worried about scraping the car. Just stated not suitable for 4x4's but anything larger than fiesta would be difficult to park. Parked on the main road so not a problemRead more. Very warm and cosy with efficient heating (working fireplaces as well but too warm to use). Useful having a separate toilet to the main bathroom. Traffic noise from The Street from about 7am in the front bedroom, due to single glazed sash windows. Back bedroom very quiet. Fantastic garden fully enclosed for the dog, and property very dog friendly, i. e. no white carpets. Fully equiped with everything you could possibly want, from games and toys, to T.V packages and cooking equipment. 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.
