Slightly further afield is the vibrant seaside town of Weymouth with beautiful sandy beaches, amusement arcades, gift shops, boutiques and plenty of pubs and restaurants.

Immediately outside of the property is a patio area complete with furniture and charcoal BBQ for those lazy meals alfresco. Take a moment to admire the nearby farm and hens before stepping across the lawn to the off-road parking area, where there is space for two cars.

Very clean and quiet small cottage close to Dorchester. Be aware that Apple equipment does not connect to WiFi but if that's not an issue it's a lovely base to explore this part of Dorset.

Lovely compact cottage with all necessary equipment provided, but as other people have said a car is a must. If a couple want a peaceful place to stay this is the one.

Swallow Cottage is beautifully presented and fitted out with everything one could need for an enjoyable holiday. Little gestures, like the provision of ecologically sound dish washing equipment, fresh flowers, milk, tea, coffee etc., were much appreciated. The property is situated well away from the village and, as others have said, transport (unleRead moress you're a really hardcore walker!) is essential. Seeing a hare bounding across the lawn on the morning after our arrival was a bonus too. Hide

Small but very well designed and thoughtfully equipped, with excellent use of the space available. The location was quiet and secure although a bit more remote than I had realised when booking. It was necessary to use the car whenever going anywhere.

This is a fantastic little cottage for a couple. Wonderfully decorated and with really great personal touches to make it feel homely and comfortable. From simple things like the signs on the door to the bedroom area to the little man to wipe the tiles in the bathroom; all the touches make the cottage really fun to stay in. A great location, close tRead moreo the main road and connectivity to Weymouth, central to give you short 30-40 min drives to either edge of the Dorset coastline. Hide
