We had an excellent week's stay at this property. The house was clean and well equipped, plenty of space for the 4 of us. Shower room by the back door is generous. The garden is very pretty & we did sit outside & read. It's well situated for days out and near the coast. We recommend West Bay, Burton Bradstock and Seatown for seaside trips.

We just had a lovely 4 night stay in this cottage. It is ideal if you want a peaceful get away from it all break. We walked to the two local pubs but you need a car for anything else.

Stylish cottage that has been renovated, but retaining character. The kitchen/dining area with skylights is amazing. Well equipped, comfortable and positioned within a quaint and very quiet village. If you want to escape then this is the place to go.

A very charming cottage set within a pretty village with a local pub. The propertys interiors were beautiful which made this place feel like a home away from home. Our dog loved the spacious, enclosed garden. We we a group of six, and although its nice to spend time together we didnt feel on top of one another. We loved playing games in the snug roRead moreom and the kitchen with breakfast bar was the ideal social space. The property isnt too far from West Bay, which has some great eateries. Hide

Location

Map
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.

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.
