Fabulous holiday cottage in a great location, ideally placed for Wareham, Poole, Corfe etc. The cottage was clean, comfortable and really well equipped, particularly the kitchen. Gardens front and back with seating. Would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to others and will hope to stay again in the future.

A spacious property in a quiet rural setting with fabulous views from one of the bedrooms. Comfortable, inside and out, with a good choice of outdoor furniture in a sheltered, sunny garden. A good base to explore the delights of Dorset within 30 minutes driving time. The rural setting means there isn't a nearby shop so be prepared. There is only a Read moreNespresso machine for making coffee. The shower in the en suite bathroom is very poor. Hide

Very spacious comfortable property, nice beds and bedding. Lovely to have garden and patio area to sit out on for a drink in good weather after a days exploring the local beauty spots.

Just back from a great week at this accommodation. Perfect location for visiting the main areas and beautiful beaches but like other reviews must stress it is at least a couple of miles to any amenities , but very peaceful, it is well equipped and comfortable .

We really enjoyed our stay here. I chose a property slightly inland to get better value for money and it didnt disappoint. It was a fantastic base to explore Studland, Swanage, Lulworth and the Tank Museum. Lots of room inside the house and a good, enclosed front garden for the children to play in. We would love to come back!

Mid-terrace barn conversion, light & airy on first floor, a little dark on ground floor. Located on farm (not working) in very quiet rural setting - no shops so need to take essentials. Very comfortable for relaxing/sleeping and with a well-equipped kitchen. However, need to take own condiments/oil if considering serious cooking as, because of CoviRead mored, these not available. External seating allows sun to be caught all day. A pleasant, comfortable and convenient base for exploring the area. Hide

The house is very clean and well looked after, sun trap in the rear of the house and plenty of space to spread out especially if you are a small family. It is generally quiet and quite isolated, you'll need a car to go our for a drink or food. we loved the woodburner which added to the cosiness of the house.

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.
