The house was in an amazing location with a simply gorgeous view. There was ten of us on total and we all had enough room, all the bedrooms were nice and there was even bunk beds for the grandchildren. We had a lovely weekend would definitely recommend this house

Cottage was very spacious and comfortable for our family group, with a well equipped kitchen and large dining table. The location was lovely with views to the sea from the lounge and a bedroom. Nice back garden with plenty of room for sitting and play. Could walk to Charmouth beach and the town and there was parking for several cars at the cottage.

We al, felt that enough use/ enablement of the garden,which was lovely,was not easily facsilitated. Realise that this is totally due to the fact that the house is built on a hill. But we had elderly people who found actually getting outside was rather difficult! Sorry,but it t was. Such a shame "

Location

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.

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.
