Fantastic holiday cottage, location was absolutely fantastic for getting around without traveling to far. We visited Swanage, Weymouth, Poole and Sandbanks. We also went to the Monkey Zoo place just up the road from the cottage, that was well worth a visit.

Beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings. Clean , comfortable and equipped to a high standard. Enclosed garden ideal for small children or in our case 2 dogs. Welcome pack , fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The dogs very much appreciated the treats that were left. Will definitely look to visit again in the future and would recommend the cottage Read moreto anyone looking for a comfortable and relaxing break. Added bonus was being able to watch the wildlife from the terrace (especially the barn owl). Hide

Beautiful barn in a very central location for all Dorset attractions. We have visited this area many times and one of the best locations we have stayed. We spent a lot of time sitting in the garden and watching the local Barn owl out hunting. The hosts were always available if needed. Very enjoyable holiday.

There are loads of lovely walks directly on the doorstep and forests, clifftops and beaches only a short car ride away. The owners were friendly & super helpful when we needed something.

The outside does not portray what is available inside. Home from home with comfortable sofas, beds, patio furniture and with peace and quiet watching nature at it's best from the doorstep. Good road connections to main attractions and for dog owners a secure garden brings peace of mind. We didn't want to leave.

Fabulous location and cottage comfortable and well equipped. The little things such as biscuits, milk and tea were very thoughtful. Our little border terrier was also safe in a large fenced 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.
