This holiday home is in a stunning location with views of the sea and lovely farmland. We had a lovely relaxing stay. House is situated in very quiet lane with little traffic. We have stayed in several houses on Isle of Purbeck and thought this was probably one of the best locations we have been to.

Very quiet location ideal if you want to walk for miles along the coastal path, the property was well equipped but a bit mean with dishwasher tablets and toilet roll so may be worth taking some with you. I would happily book again in the future

Perfect location, good outside space. Inadequate toilet rolls for 5 people. Welcome pack was missing this year ,apart from a bottle of wine, so make sure you have essentials to see you through until morning. General cleanliness was lacking considering covid. Comfy beds and plenty of indoor space .

Location

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.

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.
