Seafields is exquisite. We loved our stay there. A beautifully rustic, large cottage that was clean, comfortable and homely. A stones throw from the beach which was easily accessible via a gradual pathway. The garden was enormous and our dog loved it. My only gripe would be that I couldnt rebook a year in advance because it was already reserved.

Our family, including two young children, really enjoyed staying at Seafields. We would return in the future. The location is ideal. A beautiful setting, with views across the bay, the beach within 5 minutes walk and the coastal path at the bottom of the garden. The house is well equipped, comfortable and cosy. The large garden is ideal for childreRead moren and family BBQs. A great location to explore the local Dorset area. Would certainly recommend for family groups. Hide

Yes despite some variable weather we had a very good stay at Seafields. The location near the beach and the coastal path suited us very well even in November. The house was well equipped and everything worked well.

We had a wonderful family holiday break away from the pressures and stress of the Covid-19 situation. We had visited Seafields 9 years ago and I'm just sorry it's taken us so long to return.

Excellent location. The property was light, airy and spacious. Well equipped for the number of people. Washing and drying facilities were good, particularly as there were 3 small children in our party. The garden was excellent for childrens games.

Location

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.
