Property code: 77787

A delightful cottage situated in a quintessential Dorset village, this is a great location to enjoy an array of history and heritage locally, with the Jurassic Coast on its’ doorstep.

Set on the eastern edge of the pretty village of Wool, this delightful three-bedroom cottage is a blissful idyll from the busy modern world.

Browse the ancient market town of Wareham (6 miles), with its wonderful seafood restaurants, antique shops and Tank Museum – and discover its connection with Lawrence of Arabia.

Inside the Grade II-listed cottage, you’ll find a tranquil fusion of rural elegance and minimal modern magic. With wildlife-themed décor in quirky nooks, crannies and angles, this house is a little miracle. Prepare delicious local seafood in the quaint kitchen/diner, and spill out into the rear garden for al fresco feasts and morning coffee and croissants. Gather in the cosy lounge for convivial evenings of wine and reminiscence, before drifting upstairs for a steaming bath or a dreamy sleep in one of the three gorgeous bedrooms, each with its own idiosyncratic charm – up a few steps, the king-size has lovely garden views; the twin has two 4ft beds.

Spotlessly clean and an ideal location for Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Coastal bus stop and train station nearby. Pub at top of street. Comfortable beds. As this is a cottage the ceiling downstairs is low, beware if you are tall!

Lovely cosy cottage. Fabulous location. Very comfortable beds.and lovely outdoor space. Beware some low beams that are in keeping with the age of the cottage but not great for anyone over 6foot!! Bathroom and toilets downstairs so anyone with mobility problems may find bedtime challenging. Would definitely recommend this cottage as a fabulous base Read morefor exploring this magical area of Dorset. Hide

This is a very pretty characterful cottage in a quaint quiet village. It is well-appointed, especially the newly fitted kitchen and bathrooms. It is very well located for beaches and we were lucky enough to be able to sample several during our stay. There is a well stocked small supermarket just a few yards away, which was most welcome. The beds weRead morere comfortable and cosy and there was plenty of wardrobe space. All in all, a very good holiday cottage! Hide

I feel Its very hard to write a review as we were so disappointed? the accommodation was very poor for the money. it was dirty and the cobwebs, they had been there for ages.

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.
