The cottage and its location were perfect. The parking was good thought the bay number could be larger/ clearer as it was twilight when we parked and difficult to locate. The kitchen was loverly to cook in and well stocked with equipment. The door shelv in the refrigerator was broken and repaired with sellotape so I was not confident at putting iteRead morems of weight on it which reduced the capacity. The ensuite bathroom with the great roll top bath really needs a sign above the door on entering. I realise it's a cottage with low beams etc but when you enter a door and go up steps you expect there to be headroom and as a 6ft person I ended up smashing the top of my head the first time I entered nearly knocked myself out and had the bump/ lump for the following week. The log burner was great for cozy evenings. One comment would be to make it clearer where the actual heating controls are as we couldn't find them the first evening and it was very cold. We looked in every cupboard in the property near an arch and only realised it was outside and the key on the hook was for the door opposite the front door and had the boiler and controls in there, so the second evening we had heat. All in all a loverly place. Hide

WE love the cottage and have been back three times. All is immaculate and well furnished. Lovely location, with a view of the castle outside the door.

A few bulbs out and dishwasher needs a thorough clean and salt adding - i bought a box of dishwasher salt and left it there. Also cooker extractor hood prob needs a service . When we arrived it smelt a bit greasy in the kitchen. Shame there was no comfortable garden furniture to relax and garden is restricted access at the back.Pillows in the main Read morebedroom were really uncomfortable as the pillow cases were so small and the pillows are packed tightly inside them . otherwise it was really well presented and clean and well equipped.

Location

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.
