Plan your day in the sun-trap garden, coffee in hand. Take a lovely country stroll or embark on a coastal adventure to settle into the holiday spirit in style.

Less than a mile from the sea, this well-appointed property is within easy reach of a multitude of family and dog-friendly activities. 1.5 mile from Golden Cap, mesmeric views are only a short stank away. Climb to the top and bask in the panoramas, unscrewing a flask of hot tea as you find the best vantage point. Only 3 miles from Bridport, head into town to pick up supplies and check out the eateries, or for languid afternoons on the beach, Seatown is less than 1 mile from your doorstep.

Sat at the end of a no-through road, this property provides a relaxing bubble away from the blur of city life. Taking a step down into the lounge, let your eyes train over the welcoming space with sink-into sofa and armchairs and handsome original fireplace. On rainy days and cosy evenings, mum and dad can light the wood burner and gather snacks while the kids expertly navigate the TV controls to find a film for the family to watch. Located next door to the lounge, pop in and out of the kitchen when your bowls empty and glasses run dry. Well-equipped with everything you could need and affording lovely garden views, the kitchen has all sorts of mod cons and appliances to make meal preparations easy – and the clean-up, too! To see the first floor, take the steep, cottage-style staircase. Upstairs, you will find the three bedrooms, comprised of a double and two singles. The family bathroom is also upstairs (accessed via one step up), which has a bath with shower over and heated towel rail to keep your towels nice and warm.

To the rear of the cottage, you can enjoy the enclosed garden with table and chairs. Step onto the patio in the morning, hands wrapped around a steaming mug of coffee, and listen to the chorus of birdsong. Beyond the garden, the lane gives way to a bridleway that leads you to the village pub and beach at Seatown.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Mill Lane Cottage was warm and cosy. It was quiet and very peaceful and we felt immediately welcome and at ease. There were wonderful walks from the cottage itself, into stunning countryside. Dorset Coastal Cottages were friendly and helpful when we were arranging our stay and arrival. Perfect!

I really like this cottage. It's not the poshest on your books but it's in a great location and feels very relaxed and 'homey'. The bedrooms upstairs are very comfortable and nice - the one at the back has particularly beautiful views. The bathroom is in good nick and clean. The light filled kitchen has all the necessaries and, although it is a galRead moreley kitchen, I do love cooking all the fine produce of Dorset in it while gazing out at the lovely view. I wish the couch in the sitting/dining room was bigger but space and all that! Tele and wifi work fine though wifi not great upstairs. Not much use of the nice little garden as windy, cool & a bit rainy but have enjoyed sitting out in the sun on previous visits. Log burner worked well and there was plenty of wood. 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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
