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

Fabulous house in a great location. Well equipped and very comfortable. Cosy and warm even in February when the weather was exceptionally cold, windy and sometimes wet.

We want to live here! A stunning restoration/refurbishment of a village house. It contains just about every conceivable modern convenience. A great location as well.

A lovely, newly modernised cottage with excellent facilities and well placed for Dorchester, Bridport and Lyme Regis. Very nice village with plenty of walks.

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
