Located only 0.5 miles from the wonderful Charmouth Beach, nothing says 'revitalise' like a healthy dose of sea air to start and end your day.

This charming 15th century cottage is nestled in a quiet terrace in the popular village of Charmouth. It is the perfect coastal retreat for families and friends looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Dorset and its Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Just a short walk (approx. 500m) away is Charmouth beach, which is famous for its fossil hunting, so be sure to pack (or hire) your goggles and hammers. Heading 3 miles west, you will find yourself in the bustling seaside town of Lyme Regis where you can enjoy its beach, independent shops and eateries.

Despite its history, this cottage offers guests contemporary living in a light, bright and airy setting. Stepping down through the front door into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, you will appreciate the stylish décor that blends contemporary furniture, rustic furniture and mod-cons, which are all set off by the occasional splash of colour. Up the narrow staircase, there are three lovely bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 single) and a contemporary family bathroom. To the rear of the property is a private walled courtyard lined with containers of pretty shrubs and flowers, the perfect place for a morning coffee or evening BBQ.

This part of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has plenty of stunning beaches, such as Seatown (6 miles) and West Bay (9 miles), which are all connected by the South West Coast Path, so put on your sensible shoes, stretch those legs and breathe in the sea air. For something different, you can wander around the quaint, historic village of Abbotsbury (17 miles) before walking amongst the swans at the swannery. Hopping across the border into Devon, you could visit the seaside town of Seaton (12 miles) and enjoy a tranquil tram ride to Colyton (10 miles).

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

It was a beautiful cottage and for a small cottage it had everything we'd need for our break! We very much appreciated the thoughtful welcome basket too.

Hope cottage is absolutely lovely. The attention to detail throughout the cottage is amazing. We arrived late in the evening and to find the welcome basket and treat for the dog really was a nice touch. Would love to stay here again.

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.
