Lovely clean bungalow close to amenities. Lots of pans and crockery - didn't have to keep putting dishwasher on after each meal. Bathrooms nice and clean and comfy clean beds. Only downside was the TV reception. We could only get a few channels mainly BBC and no ITV channels. Tried re-tuning TV in living room and bedroom but no other channels avRead moreailable. May benefit from a 'free view' box to get extra channels in the living room. DVD's were available to watch but there was n DVD attached to the TV in the living room. The guest book needs updating, we were unfortunate enough to have to ring for an out of hours doctor and the telephone number for doctors out of hours was wrong/unobtainable. Again a minor thing but could have saved some anxiety! Refuse bins - not marked what rubbish goes in what bin (apart from the food bin). I had to look on West Dorset's website to see what rubbish went in which bin as I didn't want to get it wrong. Also if the bins needed putting out on collection day would have been useful (I would have been quite happy to do this). 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.
