This was an expensive week in a cottage but we had a great week. Charmouth is lovely with a great little shop, newsagent, baker, pharmacy takeaway (very popular), cafe and 2 pubs - the food at the Royal Oak was fab. This place is well-located to enjoy the Jurassic Coast. There is a friendly welcome at Manor Farm Holiday Park and the pool (open 10-1Read more and 2.30-5) was a hit with the 11-15 year olds in our party. Hide

We had a great time in Shore Reach. The cottage was immaculately clean and very well stocked and comfortable. We have a lovely week, even without the pool of cafe being open.

We enjoyed our stay very much. My top requirement for a holiday away is a comfortable bed and we got one. The staff were friendly and very quick to help and sort anything out. The cottage was more spacious than I was expecting.

Location

Map
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.

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.
