A lovely characterful and unpretentious property. The private garden enjoys the sun most especially in the morning, but also has sun in the evening as well. Lovely views to the south-east and although the railway line is a stone's throw away, we found it endearing rather than intrusive.

The joy of our visit started with our arrival at Hyde Farm gate where our host was waiting to guide us in. The cottage, its situation, and level of comfort made it a superb place to chill or use as a centre for sightseeing; we did a bit of both. The garden gives unobstructed views over a field where we took great pleasure in watching 'Ronan' (adoptRead moreed stallion) socialise with a herd of sheep. A nearby pub (walkable), the 'Helyar Arms' added to our pleasure with tasty meals and ale. Hide

The perfect spot. An easy to get to location, peaceful and beautiful with a large private garden overlooking a field full of sheep and the reservoir. Pub with good food just 20min walk away through more green. The accommodation feels like it was put together with love. Definitely a place to keep going back to.

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.
