A stunning location with wonderful sea and countryside views from inside and outside of the property. Great for family gatherings. Room for everyone round the large kitchen table. The night skies are so dark that it is great for star gazing. There is no phone signal, but the wi-fi is good. Quite remote with steep climbs for keen walkers.

We loved our stay here - the house was perfect for the small children we had with us (the games room was a big hit). Gather views were spectacular and the village is the most adorable for miles around. Would definitely stay here again.

Lowgill is a family friendly cottage with a fantastic location overlooking the sea. Great for accessing lovely walks in area and short drive to Swanage for supplies! There is a playroom for younger kids. The fireplace on the lounge was also well used. The table tennis table was a saving grace for our two teenagers as this location suits walkers or Read moreyounger families. There is a great pub nearby but can be hard to get a seat. Nevertheless locals are friendly and will shuffle up to find you space! Hide

Spacious house with stunning views, great for family holiday for all ages. We loved all the different spaces, the outside deck, the table tennis, the proximity to the pub & to Seacombe for swimming & to coastal walks. Cant wait to go back & have view as my screen saver to bring back happy memories.

Lowgill is the perfect retreat for a family. We all really appreciated the feeling that Lowgill was a much-loved family home and it fitted really well for our extended family of grown-children, their 92-year-old grandmother and a dog. The kitchen was equipped well for Christmas cooking and the house was designed for rural living, with a useful utilRead moreity and boot room for muddy stuff after walking. The fire was a joy - what a great design! We would recommend Lowgill very highly and look forward to returning again in the future. 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.

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.
