A most enjoyable stay in a very well equipped and tastefully decorated converted farm building. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the region and suggested places of interest. This included some of the best eating establishments in the area.

Decent sized and very well presented. All modern and good quality equipment. Plenty of kitchen utensils, decent shower and comfortable bed. Peaceful and secluded location. Very satisfied with accommodation.

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

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.
