An archway leads you through to the cheerful dining room. There’s also an attractive galley kitchen fully equipped with an oven, microwave, washing machine and a fridge with an ice compartment. A low doorway leads through to the utility area where the dishwasher is housed, and which also has plenty of space to store coats and boots. You will also find a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. Heading upstairs there are two cosy bedrooms with reduced height at the eaves. The first is a double bedroom with an en-suite WC, and there’s a charming single bedroom.

The cottage was very cosy and had all that we needed. The only minor thing was the temperature in the living room for this time of year. it was probably the stone floor which took a long time to warm up and left the room a bit on the cold side. The fire place stove was just ornamental! Also with a minor change to the car park area would greatly impRead morerove parking for larger cars? Hide

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
