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

Great holiday cottage. Warm and welcoming and fully modernised despite part of it being very old. Fully equipped for cooking etc. Great peaceful location in quiet village but close access to A35 and the coast.

Nice quiet location with just a local pub. The cottage is stylish & well equipped. The garden was nice & secure for our dog. Lovely to have a good supply of logs and kindling for the chilly evenings. Its a property we could definitely live in. Thank you!

Lovely location for our annual family get together with young adult kids and partners. Spent the week walking, cycling and pottering around some beautiful villages and towns. 1st time to Dorest but we will be back. Accomodation beautiful with everything you could need and a welcoming pub in the village.

Beautiful and very stylish whilst maintaining cottage character. Exceptionally well equipped and with great living space in and outdoors. Suited us perfectly for family of 4 (kids 2 & 4) and grandparents in downstairs annexe.

Reviewed by Mrs R Beale 3rd April 2019

The cottage was perfectly suited to our needs; it is cosy and beautifully presented. We've been taking my mother (now aged 90) away for the past three years in the spring and this cottage is by far the best we've stayed in. The downstairs bedroom was perfect for her. The location is idyllic; plenty of footpaths for the walkers in our party to eRead morexplore, a very friendly village and easy access to the coast and places of interest. We didn't need to light the woodburners as we were blessed with beautiful weather, but there was a generous supply of logs. The house is very well equipped and spacious; as there were only four of us we didn't really use the snug. A very successful break; mum wants to come again so hopefully we'll be back! 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.
