The cottage is close to the village’s bustling square where local farmers set up shop at Beaminster’s frequent markets.

Alongside these spacious rooms is a bathroom that has both a shower and a separate bathtub.

The outside of the property is equally as impressive as the cottages interior. At the back of the stone building is a cobbled courtyard with a comfortable garden seat waiting for you enjoy the last rays of sunshine before dinner is served.

We have stayed in this delightful little cottage before - well appointed kitchen with everything you could need for self catering, comfortable lounge and bedrooms. We love it and very much enjoyed our stay.

A well presented and clean cottage with all the things we needed. Only a very short walk to the shops and two pubs (both dog friendly with good food. Parking can be a challenge but we always found somewhere near.

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. The area is wonderful - my wife and I chose Well Cottage as we were interested in retiring to this area when the time comes and this visit cementRead moreed that idea. Absolutely everything you could need was in the cottage too: washing machine, dishwasher, plenty of cooking implements and crockery. I highly recommend Well Cottage to everyone - they even put up Christmas decorations for us. Hide

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. Very clean and comfortable. The garden was a lovely space to sit out in the evenings. Close to the square with places to eat and individual shops. The information about what toRead more do in the area was very helpful, we did all the walks around Beaminster! Hide

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.
