Very comfortable and well equipped. The cottage is close to the A35 (but traffic can't be heard) for easy access around Dorset, and the Sat Nav Postcode brings you right to the door.

Reviewed by Mr P Crockford 10th April 2019

The cottage has only very recently been completed from a barn conversion, and is in excellent decorative order with new appliances, comfortable furniture and furnishings, an array of kitchen equipment and a new (very powerful) shower. The location is set close to the owners home in an old farm yard and is a lovely quiet area, with quick access to tRead morehe A35 and the village road through Shipton Gorge to Burton Bradstock and West Bay. This made it an excellent place to relax and walk from, and being pet friendly we were able to bring our dog too. A small patio and seating area has been laid outside, if only the weather had allowed us to use it! A bridleway through the farmyard leads up to the ridge overlooking the local countryside, affording superb views out towards Golden Cap and Lyme Regis. The owner Lulu was very friendly and approachable, and we were grateful for her welcome. Hide

Thank you to Lulu & Patrick for the welcome (and delicious!) provisions left for our arrival. They have thought of and provided everything that visitors might need during their stay. Little Innsacre is perfectly located for enjoying the fantastic local areas and places such as West Bay, Eype, Hive beach, Burton Bradstock and Bridport are all withRead morein easy reach. We were lucky enough to enjoy the early spring 'heatwave' and just wish we could have stayed longer! Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
