Superb spacious accommodation in ideal location. Coped with three generations admirably. Clean and tidy, (thanks Mary) and everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Great for discovering Isle of Purbeck, kids loved the beaches, fossil hunting, steam train, coastal walks etc etc. Wouldn't hesitate to revisit.

A very comfortable and well equipped cottage. The views are stunning, close access to the coast paths. Returning from our walks for a well earned drink and pastie at the Square and Compass. My husband son and I enjoyed a lovely week, we will be returning. Dorothy, Eddy and Jeff .

This is a lovely cottage in a very peaceful location, with gorgeous views of the sea. It is furnished very nicely, with a well equipped kitchen. The garden is large and great for garden games and outdoor dining. It's a very short walk to a footpath that leads down to the coast path, and just a couple of miles walk to Dancing Ledge. The fantastic SqRead moreuare & Compass pub is just a few mins walk away. Many attractions are within a short drive. We had a great stay! Hide

The property was well maintained and is very comfortable with great kitchen appliances. The sea views and the garden are top notch and is great to wake up to. Its a very quiet location and is only around the corner from Swanage and Corfe Castle. A few minor issues with the shower heads but other than that, pretty faultless !

Cottage was very clean, welcoming, and comfortable, with a lovely garden and good parking. Situated on the edge of a pretty village in a beautiful location, it was very peaceful. There was a sense that the cottage was cared for, with a nice atmosphere. The only slight concern, and one that is not possible to address, is the fact that the stairs areRead more very steep. No problem for most people, but I am disabled with a dodgy hip, so was glad there was a downstairs bedroom and wet room. We will return. Hide

Always enjoy staying in this area for years, beautiful scenery. The cottage was very tidy, to a high specification with a nice secluded garden with views of the sea. An easy stroll to the local inn with a brilliant vista. The area is quiet with numerous walks listed. Lots of eating venues within a 5 mile radius. Can't wait to return.

A very well equipped cottage with pleasing views of the sea and comfortable garden furniture which added another 'room' in warm weather. The second bedroom was a little cramped for people such as us who take clothes for every eventuality but that was the only downside.

Cottage was lovely, had everything. However we had a lot of rain and it is very isolated. We decided to have a lazy day but there is limited internet and due to the winds we lost tv signal. This is no reflection on the property itself and the area is beautiful. Wonderful walks when sunny and dry. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of room

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.
