Great location, everything you need within a few minutes drive and local facilities a few moments away. Although we didnt manage any of the local walks, there was evidence in abundance of plenty of nature trails to explore.

Had a lovely weeks stay at willow cottage, It is at the end of a row of cottages down a very quiet side street. Ideal for exploring Dorset. There is a lovely little garden opposite to sit in. The kitchen had everything you need for your stay. Beds are very comfy! Slept really well, just be aware of the birds that may wake you up tweeting! The stairRead mores in the cottage are obviously original and are quite steep so that could be a problem for some people. I would stay here again if visiting the area. Hide

Perfect for long walks. If you want to get out and about on foot, then this is the house for you! The owners, Kate and Tev, are delightful and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Lovely people.

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.
