The location was absolutely perfect for exploring Dorset and the cottage itself was spotless and super cosy. We were very lucky with the weather all week so made use of the enclosed garden! We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck chairs for a few hours in the evening after walks along the beach. Beach towels & dog towels provided which I thought was a lovely touch! We also loved the big window in the living room, the view is so nice and we enjoyed a cup of tea looking out on a morning! We visited Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth, Ringstead Bay, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, West Bay, Chesil Beach and Portland during our stay - all within an hour drive and all stunning places! It was our first holiday with our puppy Archie and everywhere was so dog friendly - it was great! We can highly recommend a few places to eat during your stay: - The Lookout Cafe at Bowleaze Cove for a top breakfast! - Lulworth Cove Inn - great little sun spot and really good food! - The Bell Cliff cafe at Lyme Regis - amazing views! Perfect stop for a coffee! - The cafe on Portland island does a delicious cream tea. - Lyme’s Fish Bar in Lyme Regis for fish & chips! - All the cafes/restaurants along the Harbour in Weymouth are lovely! Such a nice spot to sit for a drink or a bite to eat. We went to Custom House Cafe & Quayside Bar - both really good! We are quite honestly so upset to be home! The owners are also lovely! Very friendly and kind and we had a good chat with them :) I can’t recommend this beautiful cottage enough, we felt right at home all week and Archie really enjoyed himself too! I’m sure we will be back again! Reviewed by AmyJun 2022 "A brilliant holiday stay situated in the perfect location for the all places we wanted to visit." It was clean and comfortable. Beach towels were a nice touch (but we had brought our own) as were the binoculars so we could look at the wildlife from the large window in the living room which had stunning views. The owners and their pets were incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome. The shared garden was lovely to relax in on a sunny afternoon. I highly recommend. Reviewed by JennyApr 2022 "The cottage is full of character and the views from the lounge were fabulous." The cottage was lovely and warm and the facilities were very good. The garden, even in winter was a delight. During warmer weather it would be a joy to sit outside and have a meal. The owners were very friendly and on hand if we needed anything. Definitely recommend. Reviewed by RonaJan 2022 "Everything just as the description states: Beautiful accommodation with an amazing view."
