Village setting with easy access to the South West Coast path, several beaches and many popular landmarks. With a clean and uncluttered finish, this single storey property is sure to please

Tucked amongst verdant countryside just waiting to be explored, and less than 3 miles from the South West Coast Path, this home is perfectly located for a relaxing getaway. With stunning scenery around you, head out to explore and travel 5 miles to the magnificent cove at Lulworth before returning for an al fresco BBQ banquet or a cosy night by the wood burner. Sleeping four across two bedrooms, bring your four-legged friend along too and have a ball at one of many dog-friendly beaches which dot the local coastline.

Wander the shared pathway to your door and step inside to load the cupboards with provisions and delicious, local produce. Sleek and light, the kitchen creates a calming environment in which to cook up a storm, with an ice compartment for chilled evening drinks and a handy dishwasher to help out post-dinner. Dine in style in the sunroom where natural light floods the space and there are gorgeous garden views or bask in the last of the sun and dine alfresco on the raised patio. Perfect for chilly afternoons, fire up the wood burner in the lounge and relax in front of the TV on the comfortable sofa before running a bath for a soothing soak and heading to bed. Both bedrooms are pretty and light, with tranquil tones to help you drift off and dream. There is off-road parking for one car.

With so many beautiful places to see, you will never be short of adventures. Visit the magnificent remains of the National Trust’s Corfe Castle (13.5 miles), before continuing onto Dancing Ledge (18 miles from home) for a dip in the tidal pool and a refreshing end to your day. Closer to home, the horseshoe-shaped cove at Lulworth (5 miles) is perfect for a beach day and welcomes dogs all year round. Walk 1.5 miles from the beach to marvel at the majestic arch at Durdle Door. Head south from your door and straight onto the South West Coast Path (3 miles) at White Nothe, where you can follow the Smuggler’s Path and scramble down the ladder to the quiet beach.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely peaceful spotlessly clean cottage. Beautiful garden to relax in and enjoy the peace of the countryside. In an ideal spot to get to all the other lovely places in Dorset and to chill out in the evening. Will definitely be back.

Very clean, well equipped and cosy place to stay. Great location for visiting Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and surrounding places of interest. We found some great dog friendly pubs in the area. We did not walk to the coast from Chaldon Herring as it was a bit too far for us. We enjoyed the garden centre up the road for their full English breakfast. TRead morehe coffee, tea and milk was appreciated when we arrived. If you need shopping it's a good idea to plan ahead! Hide

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.
