A very comfortable and well equipped modern holiday home.

A nice property but we were disappointed by the state of the garden on arrival. The grass had not been cut, long bramble branches hung down to the ground and the garden furniture had not been cleaned.

Very rural setting, and wonderfully quiet. We had a lovely week in this stunning holiday cottage which was well located as a base for exploring Dorset. The cottage is a real home from home and we would certainly recommend it!

Reviewed by Jayne 2nd August 2019

This is our second holiday in this fantastic cottage. There is so much space and it is very well equipped and in a beautiful location. We were a party of 6 adults and had no trouble parking 3 smallish cars. We had cows and sheep in the fields in front of the cottage and saw so many birds and wildlife in the garden (even a hawk landed there one day!Read more). Would definitely recommend and hope to stay there again soon. Hide

The cottage was rated 5 star and we thought indeed it was a five star cottage with everything provided. The game room was a bonus and children had a lot of fun there. The only thing I would say is to have connectable DVD player to downstairs big TV to make use of the dvd collection in the cupboard.

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.
