The cottage is very small and lacking a dishwasher. The television in the lounge is a small bedroom one. The parking was awkward for a big car. The cottage was very clean and had quite a good location.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week @the swallows, excellent base for discovering the area, the cottage had everything we needed with a lovely garden to relax in. It is easy to walk to the local pubs along the road ( unless really frail). Would definitely recommend especially if you have a dog as the garden is completely secure. Lovely holiday

My husband and I loved our week at Swallows. Its a lovely little property, well maintained, clean and well equipped. The location is perfect, just out of the village, but not too far, but relaxing and quiet. A small private garden with furniture was a bonus as the sun shone most of the week, the allocated parking space was also very welcome.

for us having a dog it was not good location at all, as it had a ever busy road outside and no way to walk him as no paths. also as no path you had to use the car all the time to the local pub and shops.

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.
