Just lovely. Nice and warm and spacious. Also superb location for Durdle Door, Lulworth and Dorchester. Great local shop.

Reviewed by Mr L Knott 21st September 2018

The cottage was finished to a good standard but was let down by the fact that for 3 people for a week we were only supplied with 2 toilet rolls. Also there was only 1 dishwasher tablet. All a bit mean when we were paying over 800 for the week. I don't expect a box of tablets but as we arrived on a Friday afternoon I don't want the first thing to doRead more is go shopping! Also all the radiators were turned off so the heating instructions were useless. Some of the towels were a bit worn! Hide

This cottage was very spacious, well furnished & comfortable. We also enjoyed the garden & pretty lights which illuminated this space. Good location for nearby Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door & Corfe Castle. There was a lovely Village Store just a few minutes walk away. The staff were very friendly & helpful.

Well appointed cottage, beautifully furnished and maintained with plenty of room. A very short and easy drive to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. We would love to return!

It was lovely - downstairs was very spacious, beautifully furnished, bedrooms were cosy and beds comfy, bathrooms modern and showers powerful. We had lovely weather so the garden was a real boon.

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.
