Ideal for a couple keen to immerse themselves in Dorset’s undulating scenery, it is perfect for anyone also seeking some time for themselves.

Lace up your boots and walk less than 2 miles to magnificent Melbury Park, with its woodland and deer park to explore. Embark upon a 6-mile cycle ride to see the famous chalk Cerne Abbas Giant. Venture 14.5 miles to spend the afternoon in historic Dorchester and to wander around its colourful shops and perhaps dine out. Drive about 20 miles to reach the magical Jurassic Coast, where you can follow sections of the South West Coast Path.

The cottage was clean, lovely, modern and the accessories was all of the highest standard. Rachel and Steve were lovely hosts and were there if needed but left us to ourselves otherwise. We spent many evenings in the lovely garden and had breakfast there most days to. There are many places to visit within easy travel but was nice to come back to thRead moree cottage to relax. Hide

A wonderful place, just perfect for two. Everything is to a very high standard, decor, kitchen equipment, furnishings, storage. Views over the fields are wonderful and there is a little area to sit on the other side of the property which is a sun trap. Rachel and Steve are wonderful hosts, giving you time or space as required. Nothing was too much Read moretrouble for them, a very friendly couple. A good base in which to visit three lovely counties. Would return and would definitely recommend. Hide

The kitchen was very well equipped. Used the microwave which was in a good position. Plenty of crockery and glass. If the weather had been wet we might have needed somewhere to leave wet shoes.

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.
