This cottage has everything. We were aged 2 to 70 and had a fabulous time. The garden area is awesome - barbecue pizza oven and a terrific place to eat. The trampoline was a massive success and together with the garden toys we took meant the children were very happy. The inventory was fabulous - we wanted for nothing. We have seen comments about flRead moreies. Yes you are on a working farm, yes there are flies but buy some spray and fly papers and forget them - the place is fabulous. Hide

We had a lovely holiday here the garden space and equipment were very good and the kids loved the trampoline. The barbecue area along with the Pizza oven was also very good. The dog loved the space to play in the garden before going out for the day. The surrounding area had lots of good walks and places to see.

10 of us of varying ages enjoyed this property for a special birthday. We managed the flies and cow noise from the farm next door and eventually found the property down the muddy track. We got to grips with the pizza oven, BBQ and fire pit. It was hot during our time there and the glass roofed lounge unbearable a few days so used the snug which wasRead more cool. We should have taken more washing up type stuff as well as foil etc. Washing machine well used as was the trampoline well loved by all. Hide

The property is spacious and comfortable with plenty of room to eat, sleep and relax. We were a group of between 7 and 4 over the week, so had more than enough space.

The property is adjacent to a working dairy farm so there are a lot of flies which is just part of rural life! 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.
