This cottage is in a wonderful location and very peaceful. We found the property comfortable and a good place to relax. It was well equipped and it was a pleasant surprise to have a really good cooker, unusual for a holiday letting. Did not have mobile phone coverage but good internet connection and there is a landline for emergencies. Several beauRead moretiful walks nearby. Hide

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and clean. Our only criticism would be that the double bed is a small one - and give the size of the room a normal or even kingsize bed would fit in. The unlimited supply of logs proved to be untrue as there were only a few in the store.

A lovely cottage. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Beautiful location and the local pub was a bonus.

Our only concern is that if you have a small dog , they can easily get under the gates , the rest of the perimeter of the garden is sealed.This meant that we could no relax with our dog in the garden.

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.
