Cottage was in a lovely setting but very very remote. It is joined to owners cottage and you share his drive. The cleanliness was fine apart from the fridge something had been spilt inside and we had to clean it before we could use it. All the booklets were years out of date. Owner was very friendly. Description of cottage states internet connectioRead moren which in this day and age is essential and with COVID you need this to book into activities and was non existent. Hide

A very nice property with a lot of character. The best feature is the views of the rolling countryside. The owner was extremely supportive and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

If it's peace and quiet you're wanting, this is the place to be. Idyllic countryside with a view across the valley to die for. Surrounded by picturesque villages and country walks, and within easy travelling distance of historic buildings and museums, there's plenty to do and see. We'll be back.

Very nice accommodation with lovely sun room. But unlike the revue in July there were no fresh flowers, scones and jam or eggs and the fluffy white towels are now beige and rough! I would question that revue.

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.
