The Honeypot cottage is a lovely, cosy and quaint little cottage. It suited us perfectly with lots of charm. Although we only stayed for a long weekend it seemed to have all the equipment and facilities you would want and was very comfortable. The WiFi was the best we've had in a cottage. The owner/contact was very helpful and totally respected ourRead more privacy. The welcome pack was much appreciated and a lovely touch. Hide

Pleasant secluded and quiet cottage just off a main road. Easy walking access to coast and 2 miles from Weymouth. Useful local amenities within a couple of minutes walk (Co-Op, Spar, pubs and 2 fish & chips shops). Cozy and peaceful cottage. Very quiet. All you need for a relaxing holiday.

We had a lovely week at Honeypot cottage. When it was booked we mentioned that it was a 60th birthday and when we arrived there was a bottle of Prossecco and a birthday card - how thoughtful and kind! Also a cake and a pint of milk in the fridge. We had all we needed and had a good break from work, even though the weather wasn't great we walked aloRead moreng the coast into Weymouth and found loads of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Cottage is perfect size for two and has everything you need. Its in a good location for visiting the main attractions of the Dorset coast. It is situated on a main road and although set back & hidden from view, there is some road noise when sat out in the garden.

As soon as we'd parked the car and wandered down the path, we knew this was going to be special. On a main road, but because it sits back it was very peaceful. Everything we needed was easy to find. It also had a bit of character. We couldn't have chosen better.

Reviewed by Mrs G Stephens 13th September 2018

The cottage was small but lovely with everything you needed. You could easily walk to a few lovely pubs and shops. You can walk to Weymouth which takes about an hour and a half. It is easy to visit lots of beautiful villages and historic houses from the cottage within an hour.

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.
