A true country idyll near Bridport, this streamside cottage welcomes solo visitors and couples to enjoy a peaceful break from the rhythm of everyday life.

This charming cottage, located in the small village of Uploders, is an ideal hideaway for couples. This cosy property is tastefully decorated in a pleasant country-cottage style, while a babbling unfenced stream that runs through the garden makes it the perfect place to relax. Its proximity to the local pub (125 metres) and coast (4.5 miles) makes it an enviable location for two to enjoy a peaceful holiday, however you like to unwind.

Enter this pretty cottage through the hall and into the welcoming lounge, where warm tones and beautiful exposed stone encourage you to curl up on the sofa with a good book in front of the wood burner. Take a step up into the well-equipped kitchen to fix yourself something to eat, and enjoy it at the table looking out through the sunroom windows. Enjoy a soothing soak in the bath after a long day of walking in the bright and airy bathroom – there’s also a shower over the bath if you prefer. Be careful on the winding narrow stairs up to the inviting double bedroom, where soft, calming decor and exposed beams will help you get a great night’s sleep, but watch your head in the low eaves! Outside, colourful plants and garden furniture offer the ideal spot for an al fresco drink in the evening, listening to the stream and watching the sun go down.

Take a wander around the lively market town Bridport (4 miles) and discover the local shops and cafes, then head 2 miles further down to West Bay beach, known as the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. Take one of the many walking routes to discover spectacular views and diverse wildlife. Eggardon Hill (3.5 miles), an Iron Age hill fort, is another good place for walking, with views across the Marshwood Vale to the coast.

Ideal for a couple for a short stay to use as a quiet base for walking and visiting the Jurassic Coast area. Quiet village with a pub a short walk away ( need to book!). On road parking adjacent to property. Recommend arrival in daylight as entrance to property is at the rear and not suitable for wheelchair use. Steep staircase to bedroom.

If you are a walker and especially a dog-owner, the cottage is perfectly situated for some lovely walks. There is the disused railway line close by and walks along the river and at the foot of the lynchets. The villagers are friendly and the Crown Inn, just a few steps away, serves the most delicious food and the hosts are very welcoming.

Small but clean and tidy. Steep narrow stairs, so I don't recommend it to the anyone who isn't very stable. Quiet with excellent public footpaths to walk with your dog.

A comfortable micro cottage in a pleasant quite village/hamlet. Just right for two and a fur baby. Local pub welcoming and serves excellent food. Mind the spiral stairs in the dark if coming down for the toilet in the night, switch the light on at the top of the stairs!!

Would not use the cottage again , because of the steep steps and the parking situation. However, it is clean and comfortable, and well equipped. Would have liked better lighting in the sitting room, as we enjoy reading.

Disappointed to arrive to a lounge without a sofa. We had wanted a place to snuggle together and relax. Instead we tried to stay out sightseeing all day, we found ourselves driving around in the evenings looking for a pub with a sofa. The other chairs were firm wing armchairs, fine for a short time sitting. The rest of the cottage was pleasing and Read morein a lovely location, close to Bridport and West Bay. Hide

The cottage was lovely and as the weather was good, we were able to use the small garden. It was well equipped but the cupboards were in a bit of mess and we rummaged in them to find the relevant equipment.

It s a lovely cottage and we have been to it three times now. We were disappointed to see that the open fire had disappeared and been replaced by a log burner , not quite the same !

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.
