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.

    Made enjoyable..

    Lovely old characterful cottage in superb location. Ideal for walking in scenic locations. Well appointed, clean and well decorated. Only problem was the access road. Which was narrow, the vegetation needed cutting back and there were no passing places.

    Enjoyable stay

    We really enjoyed staying in the cottage. We went with our two years old son and were happy with the things provided for children (bed, chair, cutlery, etc) Beautiful and peaceful

    Made special by:

    Very cosy and a great base to walk and explore the area. Loved going to the Anchor inn at Sea town which was excellent. A lovely cottage and lovely walks. Only minor point was that the microwave instructions were for a different machine and therefore had trouble setting the clock etc
