Well Cottage is an extremely good property. Clean, comfortable and in an excellent location just off of the Market Place in Beaminster. Easy walking to Pubs and Restaurants and just a 15 minute drive to the coast. Just one downside for older people is the steep staircase which we found to be a bit difficult to negotiate.

Ideally located for touring to places around Dorset. Nice village with very good amenities. Lovely cottage well laid out and equipped.

The owners have thought of everything to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the appliances are spotless. The tea, coffee, eggs, home made marmalade/jam and biscuits on arrival were a treat. Beaminster is a delightful town and there are many places close by to visit.

Well Cottage is a lovely place to stay and the hosts were superb, they popped round on the first night to make sure everything was okay and left a lovely welcome pack including tea, coffee, eggs and milk.

Absolutely everything you could need was in the cottage too: washing machine, dishwasher, plenty of cooking implements and crockery.

The cottage was perfect and had everything you might need. The extras were very welcome: eggs, jam and the tea/coffee/milk before we'd had a chance to go shopping was great.

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.
