A lovely cottage. We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very well equipped, very clean and private. The rooms are all a good size, bright and airy. Great living space and a large kitchen. A lovely big garden for the children to play in. The owners were available at all times to help with anything we needed. We hope to be able to come againRead more. Thank you! Hide

Beautifully presented farmhouse which was exactly as described. The kitchen was so well equipped it was like being in someones home rather than a rental. The house was spotlessly clean. Charmouth and Seatown lovely places with lots of space.

Private, relaxing and well renovated cottage close to the coastline. Wonderful host, beautiful garden, accommodates a large family (including our dog) and a much needed break. Definitely recommend to others.

We really enjoyed our stay here. There were two families staying, both with young children, and it worked very well. The layout of the house and garden are interesting and great for kids to play in. Level changes on the ground floor are tricky for crawling babies or new walkers. The hard floors in the kitchen, dining and hallway aren't ideal for yoRead moreung kids, but we had no problems. Kitchen is very well kitted out for the more adventurous chef. Ideal location for Charmouth and Lyme. Hide

Th cottage was perfect for us all and very well equipped. The kitchen appliances were superb and the kitchen was very well equipped. Having the bedrooms spread out, and 2 downstairs, worked very well for us as we had 4 generations of our family sharing the cottage. Location was idyllic. easy to reach so many beautiful places too.

Location

Map
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.
