A lovely cottage in a sweet village. We had a big family gathering of varying ages, and chose the cottages for its facilities. However the cottage information needs to be updated as do the dining chairs that were really unusable. No trampoline available. Plenty of room inside and in the grounds.

Wonderful family holiday with three generations ranging from age 2 to 73. Ideal accommodation with lots of country and coastal walks. Sandy beaches at Swanage and Sandbanks. Rustic pub in the village selling great beers. All in all a great holiday topped off with fine weather.

A wonderful cottage in a wonderful location! So many beautiful places to visit - far too many to experience in one week! Great walks and beaches within easy reach. The property (in particular, the kitchen) was very well equipped but would be useful to have a vacuum cleaner. There were a few minor housekeeping issues - all of which were dealt with qRead moreuickly either through the maintenance company or Google! Only drawback was the absence of an outside recycling bin. Thank you for a lovely week! 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.
