    “The cottage suited us very well. We ...”
    The cottage suited us very well. We were visiting relatives in south Somerset so the cottage was in a good location for that but in addition was not too far from the coast. The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable and was spacious enough for 4 members of our family spread over 3 generations. It was very warm and cosy and the log fire was a welcome addition.

About the location


Beaminster 4 miles.

The thriving West Dorset village of Corscombe nestles beneath the chalk downland close to the Somerset border, and is only 4 miles from the pretty town of Beaminster. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Corscombe is surrounded by attractive, unspoilt countryside, dotted with picture postcard villages and country houses, and offering lovely walks, while nearby Beaminster provides a good range of shops and inns. A great touring base, the Dorset Jurassic coast is within easy reach of Corscombe, with ancient Lyme Regis or the little harbour at West Bay both a little further, while Thomas Hardy’s Dorchester is well worth a visit. An ideal base from which to explore this gorgeous area.
