We spent a warm and cosy Christmas in this delightful house of great character. All rooms were spacious, beds comfortable and plenty of hot water for all our needs. The house was tastefully decorated for Christmas with a real tree in the dining room and LED trees in the sitting room which was a delight. We enjoyed walking in the woods from the housRead moree, the wonderful Donkey Sanctuary and fossilling on Charmouth beach all within easy reach of the property. We had a great holiday, thank you!

Great quirky cottage with number of steps into downstairs rooms as well as up to bedrooms. Rooms warm up well with the heating on, didn't want to use log fires, but could have. Provides good access to various beaches for walks, plus various Independent and National Trust houses and gardens. Dorchester a good county town to visit with easy parking.

Fantastic property, everything you could possibly need, home from home. Really peaceful and relaxing location.

As a family we take at least 1 large family holiday a year. This cottage was as near perfect as we have yet experienced. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest was happy with the well equipped and clean cottage. As a bonus we saw deer and birds of pray up close on the grounds. When the toaster broke it was replaced within a couple of days.

This is a great family house and garden, only 8 minutes drive from Charmouth beach. Well equipped, we had everything we needed for a brilliant holiday. Having access to the caravan park shop and play area was a bonus.

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.
