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.

Trimm Cottage was absolutely perfect quirky old cottage with plenty of space - we only took our car out twice in the week we were there. The coastal path walks and sea close by as were the pubs for our evening meals when we couldn't be bothered to fend for ourselves after a long walk! Our collie loved being in the secure garden - a little oasis of Read moresunshine and shade for all. Absolutely fabulous cottage and location for children and dogs (small park area next door) - keep on leads Hide

Trimm cottage is a beautiful property, full of charm and character. It is very well equipped, with everything you could need for a weeks stay. The location is perfect for visiting the nearby towns of Bridport and Lyme Regis or for simply taking in one of the many walks straight from the door. A walk to the Anchor Inn at Seatown is an absolute must!

Beautiful, cosy cottage in a wonderful location. The cottage had everything we needed and we particularly enjoyed all the games, books and DVDs. Could've stayed much longer.

Reviewed by Dr J Fox 10th October 2018

The cottage was very comfortable and superbly located, being only a few minutes walk to the beach and the SW Coastal Path. Sitting in the Anchor garden with a drink watching the sun set and anglers pulling in their dinner was magical!

This was the second visit to Trimm Cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again. The cottage is well equipped and very convenient for pubs and walks to the coast.

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.
