A large, comfortable house of a decent standard in a great location at a good value price. Ideal for groups and multiple families. For the less mobile do bear in mind the hillside location and steps to entrance.

Long Cottage was perfect for our family holiday. It is well equipped and very comfortable and spacious for large family groups. We had magnificent walks straight out from the cottage. There are lovely views of the coast from the lounge and some of the bedrooms. It's great to have the garden and we enjoyed watching the wild rabbit who visited regulaRead morerly! Hide

It was the third time we had stayed at Long Cottage, Stonebarrow Lane, Charmouth, so that says it all! We all loved the space, both in the house, and in the garden, with the lovely views out across the bay to Lyme Regis. It was like a holiday home-coming.

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 "

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.
