Property code: DC196

Enjoying a tranquil location in the Dorset countryside, this beautiful 18th-century mid-row stone cottage has been lovingly updated to provide cosy and inviting family accommodation in idyllic surroundings.

A spacious living area is the heart of this bright and homely cottage, perfect for evenings spent as a family. Five humans and two top dogs can relax and put their paws up here, after walks along the coast and a sniff around the many beaches and coves. The iconic natural landmark Durdle Door is only 10 miles away, and a trip to the beach there is sure to have tails wagging.

Inside, take off coats and unclip leads, then head through to the kitchen to prepare a tasty dish for dinner – not forgetting a few treats and titbits for your hound. The dining room is great for meals together, and once the plates are cleared and Fido’s food bowl is away, use the table to plan tomorrow’s adventures. When you’re ready for a soft seat and your dog wants their bed by the fire, go through to the lounge. Spacious and light, with period features including a stone inglenook fireplace, you can browse programmes on the Smart TV, watch a film, and play music through either the Bluetooth speaker or iPod dock. As long as your pup gets a fuss and an ear scratch, they’ll be content to curl up at your feet. Come bedtime, they may want to stay warm in the lounge, especially on chilly nights. The stairs to the bedrooms in the eaves are cottage-style and steep, so those with limited mobility may struggle. Outside, via the dining room’s French doors, there’s a pretty garden for al fresco dining.

As you explore the area, stop off at the viewing point to marvel at the Osmington White Horse (4 miles), or get up close by following the circular trail around it; the walk starts from the cottage road. Visit Nothe Fort (6.5 miles) for a family day out full of exciting history and wonderful views.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Vine cottage is nestled amongst several stone cottages. Extremely quiet, all we heard were horses hooves in our stay. It is perfectly located to explore many Dorset highlights.

A nice clean cottage with a garden which was great for our little dog. The beds were all very comfortable and this is a good base to explore the local stunning scenery.

Comfortable cottage in a great location; great for dog walking and within easy reach of the sea. Sadly the village pub had closed permanently the week before our stay.

A very pretty cottage in a typical dorset village, with 2 spacious downstairs rooms and plenty of space to enjoy dinner around the large table! Beautiful walks from the door - to the coast path, or up the escarpment to the white horse.
