The property boasts a very spacious interior with charming features including exposed brickwork and wood burners with some low doorways – please mind your head. The large sitting/dining room is cosy and comfortable with beautiful soft furnishings; cosy up on the sofa as the fire roars and relax in front of the TV. Glazed doors open onto the exterior terrace, creating a blend of indoor and outdoor living.

Outside is a compact private courtyard bordered by stone walls, with a terrace, a lawn and a BBQ creating the perfect place to dine alfresco. There is parking for two cars and storage for bicycles in a garage.

We stay in a different cottage each year,and this was the overall best one.Only downside was downstairs shower,but not a major issue.

Location and the warmth of the welcome were excellent.

Reviewed by Mrs E Alder 29th September 2018

The cottage although nice was dated and could do with some money spending on it. The shower had nowhere to put soap shower gel etc and was in a room with the washing machine and a Belfast sink, no toilet and had no towel rail. The bathroom had no towel rail. There were no wardrobes in two of the bedrooms. The master bedroom only a double with a douRead moreble quilt. The towels provided were threadbare I had to ask for new ones, which were changed immediately. The French doors were extremely difficult to close and lock to the point that they werent used as worried we would not be able to shut them again. The BBQ was small ideal for two but no good for six! Location was excellent, easy walk to Fleet Lagoon and surrounding areas, nice pub 5 minute walk away. Hide

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.
