With easy access to Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Bridport, plus boasting a shared outdoor pool, this welcoming property is the perfect choice for a family holiday close to the coast.

Sleeping five guests, this dog-friendly holiday cottage in West Dorset is perfectly located by the Jurassic Coast world heritage site for adventurous holiday breaks by the sea. It’s part of a complex of properties set in 30 acres of grounds so it’s made for guests who enjoy daily jaunts from the doorstep. There’s a shared parking area; a shop, pub, and eatery just a mile away; and a choice of beaches close by (1.5 miles).

If you can’t decide between countryside and coast, this is the place for you. Step inside and hang coats in the hallway before admiring the cool coastal-style interiors, airy open-plan kitchen, and cosy dining, and living area. Kick back after a family walk on the South West Coast Path, and unwind on squishy leather sofas by the warmth of a wood burner. When your brood get peckish the compact kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need for a tasty feast; and there’s a convenient dishwasher so nobody needs to wash up. Snuggle up in the cosy bedrooms, beautifully decorated and with ample storage. Refresh in the family bathroom downstairs (note: there’s a step up to the shower and WC area). And enjoy a family picnic with your hound in the spacious surroundings.

If you fancy a fossil expedition, head to Charmouth Beach (1.5 miles), and look out for dinosaurs! Or take relaxed holiday snaps by a row of colourful beach huts. Families can also explore the Victorian seaside resort of Lyme Regis (2 miles), with its magnificent sandy beach and pier, along with pretty shops and cobbled lanes to potter towards artisan studios at The Town Mill, and Dinosaurland Fossil Museum with its inspiring collections of ammonites and ichthyosaurs. Or discover the market town of Bridport (7.5 miles), which holds an annual literary festival.

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

All in all was a nice property located within easy reach of Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Property could do with a washing machine instead of a dishwasher. Really nice layout inside warm and cosy. Would definitely book again.

Cottage is very pretty and in a brilliant location to visit so many places like Charmouth, Lyme Regis, West Bay, etc. Few issues with the cottage but all feedback to owners so hopefully these can be easily resolved. Once sorted this cottage would be perfect.

So happy with our stay here. The cottage is lovely. Clean, comfy and everything you need there. In a great location - close to everything. Within walking distance of the beach but is very hilly so the walk back is a mission! Takes 2 minutes to drive to beach and lots of cheap parking. Close to West Bay and Lyme Regis as well as Charmouth beach. AnyRead more problems we had were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Will definitely be back to stay again. 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.
