The apartment is in a very peaceful setting, enabling a very relaxing break "away from it all". All the facilities and equipment were perfect and we had everything that we needed - just like home from home. So, we couldn't ask for anything more - we were totally satisfied and happy.

Owner very pleasant and helpful. Well appointed inside and tasteful decor. Comfortable bed. Quiet private back garden. Property faces a busy main road. When exiting the property visibility onto the main road is very restricted. Easy access to shops and restaurants in Ringwood. Well positioned for visiting the New Forest and coastal resorts.

Cottage was extremely comfortable and in a good location for the New Forest and for the coast as Poole was only about 1/2 hour away. Did feel that the cottage could have been cleaner as the windows were dirty but the weather did not help. The shower screen also had water marks on it.

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.

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.
