No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

Dorset Coast

Dorset is Thomas Hardy country - an appealing mixture of rolling heath land, secluded valleys, picturesque villages, great houses and estates, and a coastline awash with natural beauty. The spectacular Jurassic Coast is just one of the many wonders Dorset has to offer and has shaped the county?s history - from the rugged Isle of Purbeck and the sweeping Chesil Beach to the quaint charm of Lyme Regis and Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour. National Trust properties in Dorset include Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy and Clouds Hill once the cottage retreat of T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), while other attractions include the seaside resort of Bournemouth and the county town of Dorchester.

    Location itself was very nice (once we got there). Shared garden space with other NT cottages was nice.

    Fantastic location

    This cottage had a fantastic location we loved being right on the coastal path and hearing the roar of the sea. I did email the contact centre after our stay as the heating was off when we arrived and the cottage was very cold and the fire alarm was beeping as it needed a new battery. We think there had been a power cut so the heating timer wasn't on the correct time, we understand these things happen and it wasn't a big deal but we felt we wanted to note it as it does make it more welcoming to come into a warm cottage after travelling (and when it's freezing outside), but also as there were other unoccupied cottages attached to ours and we wanted to let someone know they may need to go and check the heating in those other cottages. Other than this the cottage was very nice, clean and as usual the kitchen very well equipped!
