There is a double bedroom and bathroom with shower on this level also.

We had a wonderful stay in this cosy cottage. The cottage is very well presented and has everything you need for your stay (plenty of DVDs and board games in case the weather turns foul!). Lovely location with easy access to local amenities, the cove and fabulous walks along the coast path. We look forward to coming back!

Charming cottage very close to Lulworth Cove and other sights in Jurassic coastline. We stayed here over half term with our kids and we enjoyed coming back to the cottage after a day exploring the coast. We expected cottages to be small and cozy but it was well laid out and suited exactly what we were looking for - a place to relax after a day of Read moreouting. Hide

This immaculately kept cottage was a wonderful 'home from home'. It provided a warm and welcoming atmosphere and well equipped surroundings of good quality that added value to the holiday break.

The cottage was fantastic and a lovely, place to come home to at the end of a day out. It had everything we needed and more, and we would happily return again in the future

The cottage is beautiful and just the right size with all the things you need for your holiday. We loved it. It was really nice not to have to travel elsewhere to get the key, and so we could settle in immediately.The log fire was a breeze to use and made the one cold evening really cosy. It really did feel like a home rather than a holiday let, thRead moree DVD's games, books etc all added to the homely feel, and not needing to bring our own linen was great. Hide

Reviewed by Miss H Smith 31st August 2018

The cottage is very tastefully decorated, and the quality of everything in the cottage was high. There were fresh flowers and biscuits for our arrival. The only drawback was the lack of garden. The neighbour was a bit snotty when we tried to sit on the bench outside in the sun. But being so close to the coast, this wasn't a huge issue.

Location

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.
