The cottage is right on the edge of the village with wonderful views out to sea, down the valley. The kitchen is well equipped, with literally everything you would have at home and more. The house was warm and spacious for the four of us staying and having the two sitting areas worked well, one for the day with the garden views and the other by thRead moree fire in the evening. With close access to the coastal path and numerous paths inland, this is a great location for walkers. The village pub is one of those traditional pubs you rarely see these days with lots of different rooms to find a cosy place to sit, recommend the landlords cider. Don't expect to eat much of a meal here, all they service are pasties, so we ventured into Corfe Castle and has a delicious meal at the Fox. Hide

Seafield is a tastefully furnished and well appointed cottage with a lovely sea view down towards Winspit.

The whole cottage was outstanding; spacious and clean. Everything was there for a wonderful holiday.

Lovely location very quiet which was wonderful. Great kitchen! Lots of space which we didn't really use. Great views! Only downside was the bed linens and towells, they needed refreshing.

Brilliant southerly aspect, full of light, modern kitchen and very comfortable, interesting (in a good way) decor. Two minor negatives were the damp firewood (after two evenings failing to get the fire going - we have a fire at home, so know how to do it - we had to resort to a small pile of firelighters; and the fairly feeble internet. One major Read moredownside was the large volume of dog poo left on the smaller right hand side rough grass area - all clearly from the same dog.

Location

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.
