Full of charm and character, this delightful thatched cottage can be found on a quiet, no-through lane in the tranquil Dorset village of Chideock. Further along the lane, you come to a bridleway that leads to the beach, cliffs and pub at Seatown (1 mile), so you can enjoy early morning strolls to see the sunrise or evening rambles to see the sunset.

To the rear, the bright kitchen is well-equipped and offers access to the small, enclosed garden. The ground floor is tiled throughout. Up the narrow winding staircase, with handrail, you will discover three bedrooms: one good-sized double and two smaller single rooms. There is also a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Further west again is Lyme Regis, a seaside town with a range of independent shops and eateries as well as a family-friendly beach. Going east, the unique Chesil Beach is 18 miles away and only a few miles from the many attractions on offer in the seaside resort of Weymouth.

We travelled as a couple plus one dog and had a good holiday despite the mixed weather. Great location, short walk to either the village or the beach, with decent pubs at both.

Comfortable and clean and perfectly situated, just 15 minutes walk to the beach and good access to country walks. We have been back 3 times and hope to visit again next summer.

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

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.
