This quaint cottage nestled in the beautiful village of Eype is ideally located on the beach lane and has a public house located right on the doorstep.

Set behind the village pub in Eype, this semi-detached Georgian cottage is brimming with charm both inside and out. Decorated in a tasteful nautical style, the light and airy accommodation features stylish pendant lighting, wooden flooring, rustic furniture and a feature Victorian fireplace. When you’re not enjoying an al fresco meal with a view of the Jurassic Coast from your fabulous decked terrace, take a stroll along the shingle beach or browse the independent shops and eateries in nearby Bridport.

Inside, a bright and spacious open-plan kitchen/diner sets the scene for tasty family meals, with a modern kitchen area, a sociable breakfast bar, a farmhouse-style table and a feature fireplace stacked with logs. For those chillier evenings in, the inviting lounge boasts an open fire and window seat overlooking the valley, together with a fully-stocked bookcase and a choice of board games. When the sun is shining, there’s no better place to be than on the private decked terrace, which looks out over rolling countryside towards the coast. There is designated off-road parking for one car.

Eype is a steeply-shelving dog-friendly pebble beach on Dorset’s dramatic Jurassic Coast. With a popular pub, restaurant and farm shop, it is ideally located for long walks along the South West Coast Path. Head west to reach the fossil-rich beaches at Seatown (2.5 miles) and Charmouth (6 miles) or follow the path east to discover Broadchurch’s West Bay (1.5 miles) and Chesil Beach. The market town of Bridport (2.5 miles) offers a good selection of shops and eateries while, further inland, the historic town of Beaminster (8.5 miles) retains a distinctive art scene.

Wayside Cottage was a real home from home, it had all the equipment you could need plus more. It was comfy and clean. The decking was lovely to sit out on and enjoy the views. Lovely quiet location, 15 min walk to the beach.

The pub next door was very welcoming. The cottage is Ok but it could be cleaner. Parking outside the property was difficult for our large car. But apart from that the cottage has everything you need for a short break.

We stayed at Wayside cottage in August, it was a very cosy and well equipped. The location is great for walks to the sea and has a pub close by too. In summary its a great place to get away from it all with super views of the countryside.

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.
