This quaint stone-walled period cottage with original features, is set in stunning Bothenhampton and combines old-fashioned charm with contemporary style.

Enjoying a picturesque village location, yet only 1.5 miles from the bustling resort of West Bay, is this 140-year-old terraced cottage. Sleeping five, this cottage is ideal for groups looking for a peaceful rural retreat with ample amenities – including a supermarket, a pub and the beach – within easy walking distance.

Step inside to discover character charm mixed with modern features across the three storeys of this lovely cottage. The open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen has space for the whole group to spread out and relax, with a wood burner and oak flooring adding cosy touches. The utility room and shower room are both handy for freshening up after trips to the coast. On the first floor, you’ll find two double bedrooms, one with a TV and a charming Victorian fireplace, plus a family bathroom. Then climb the spiral staircase to discover a single bedroom with views of the distant hills and the pretty garden - just mind your head in the eaves. At the rear of the cottage is a flagstone courtyard, with steps up to a beautiful cottage garden with a sunny terrace perfect for morning coffee or evening drinks. The terrace has a lovely view of the lush garden with its flower filled borders. Fire up the BBQ and enjoy being in this wonderful location. Parking is available on the village lane.

Walk or drive the 1.5 miles to West Bay and visit its working harbour and wide range of cafes and restaurants – not to mention the sandy beach. Take the South West Coast Path from West Bay to Hive Beach (3 miles’ walk) and refuel at the popular cafe or head to Bridport (1.5 miles) – a bustling market town with a wide range of independent shops and places to eat and drink.

the most comprehensively equipped cottage we have stayed in (& we've stayed in many) It was warm, welcoming (with a Christmas tree all set up!) and really clean throughout.

Well thought out and planned cottage, good location in terms of amenities and could find no fault whatsoever.

This was the first time we have ever stayed in a cottage in 20 years which we couldn't fault at all so well done Tim.

Sunnyside is a delightful cottage and has everything you could possibly want and more. A real home from home which is both comfortable and welcoming. A great deal of love and attention to detail has been invested into creating this lovely cottage and garden.

A pretty cottage in a lovely, quiet and rural location but within easy walking distance of Bridport. The furniture was all very comfortable (including the beds!) and the kitchen very well equipped with good quality utensils.

A beautiful little cottage in the quiet location of Main Street, Bothenhampton. Easy parking and a local supermarket only minutes away. The cottage is equipped with everything you need. Two bathrooms, two good sized double bedrooms and a single attic bedroom, kitchen/diner/lounge (which was a good size for 4 adults), a utility room and a beautifRead moreul idyllic garden. Free WIFI is also available. The key instructions were really easy which meant we could arrive at the property in our own time and not have to rush to get to an office by closing time. There was also plenty of information available regarding the cottage along with information about the local area. There were also games, books, a DVD player with DVDs and CDs to keep everyone entertained. Hide

We arrived to a spotlessly clean & tidy cottage. It had everything we could have possibly needed for our stay.

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.
