We had a wonderful week at this property and cant recommend it highly enough. Very easy to find and decent room for parking in a very quiet and a peaceful location. At the bottom of the drive is a path leading to a nature reserve keep walking and you will arrive at a spectacular view. Popular beaches are a short drive and locations such as LulworthRead more Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle are only an hour by car. The house itself is beautiful and comfortable. We loved every minute - thank you! Hide

Especially in these Covid times the lack of cleanliness in the cottage needs addressing. This is paramount. If this is taken on board we would say the cottage would then offer good, comfortable facilities of a high standard in a very quiet but friendly village close to walkable amenities .

The cottage is perfectly situated to walk to the sea, into Bridport and go on many local walks. It is really spacious, with two lounges and an enormous, well equipped kitchen and sunny conservatory. Would highly recommend it.

I could only give 3 stars for comfort as the heating boiler was not working for three days and we had to use convectors and immersion heater for hot water.

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.
