Escape to a peaceful pocket of Dorset with this charming home-from-home that’s full of original features.

This charming, thatched cottage can be found on a quiet, no-through lane in the peaceful Dorset village of Chideock. Wandering further along this lane will bring you to a bridleway that leads to the beach at Seatown, so you can enjoy early morning walks to see the sunrise or evening strolls to see the sunset. It is an ideal place for families to enjoy quality time together in the surroundings of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within walking distance of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

This wonderful cottage is packed with original features that are beautifully accentuated by light walls, traditional furniture and the odd contemporary touch. Downstairs, there is a good-sized lounge with its fireplace and wood burner to keep you warm of an evening. To the rear of the house is the elegant, but modest, well-equipped kitchen/diner, which offers access to the rear garden with its winding path, lawn and mature shrubs. Upstairs, the charm of original features continues, but the two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and family bathroom are still light, bright and airy.

The peaceful village of Chideock is close to the A35 offering easy access to the rest of West Dorset, from Lyme Regis to Weymouth. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is nearby with access available at a number of places. 5 miles west is Charmouth, the popular fossil hunting beach, where you can hire hammers and goggles. Further west again is the seaside town of Lyme Regis with a range of independent shops and eateries as well as a family-friendly beach. Going east, the unique Chesil Beach is 18 miles away and only a few miles from the many attractions on offer in the seaside resort of Weymouth.

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

Lovely cottage. Very nicely decorated with lots of nice little touches in keeping with the seaside home look. Lots of books and games. The garden was fully enclosed, so perfect for the dog. Lots of interesting walks directly from the cottage, down to the beach and across a number of close-by footpaths and bridleways. The Anchor Inn was within easy Read morewalking distance. Note: our Discovery Sport only just fitted in the parking space, so no giant SUVs! Hide

This is a great little cottage in a perfect location, just a short walk from beautiful Seatown beach. Dorchester, Lyme Regis and Bridport are all a short drive away and it is well positioned for many fantastic coastal walks. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend a stay at Trimm Cottage

A lovely old cottage, very well set out and comfortable. Everywhere thoroughly clean. I particularly liked the choice of books and games. Nice little garden and in a really good location.

Reviewed by T 20th September 2019

The cottage was chosen for its location near to the Coastal Path and other walks in West Dorset, and was very good for this. I always look for a shop and a pub in the village, and Wi-Fi. The shop was basic particularly for fresh food, but good range of shops in Bridport. The pubs both did good beer, but are more geared to providing food (particularRead morely the George). The Clock is nearer and was fine. The Wi-Fi was good and better than often found in rural locations. 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.
