Holiday Rental House
A pretty stone-built terraced cottage located on a quiet street in the heart of the charming West Dorset town of Beaminster, a short walk from its excellent restaurants, pubs, food and gift shops. Beautiful walks from the door and only a short drive to the spectacular Jurassic Coast with its stunning coast walks and beaches. Dorset Cottage is a sweet little bolthole - a perfect base for a relaxing holiday and ideal for singles, couples and for small families with a baby or young child. Nick and Jo, who look after the cottage, live around the corner with their two young children and dog, have spent the past few years exploring the area. They have put together a guide to all the wonderful things to see and do near by and are happy to advise you on activities and sites to visit during your s...A pretty stone-built terraced cottage located on a quiet street in the heart of the charming West Dorset town of Beaminster, a short walk from its excellent restaurants, pubs, food and gift shops.

You enter a small porch area where you can store your coats, wellies and beach bags. Next is the open plan living room and kitchen. The sitting area has a very comfortable red sofa (which folds out as a double sofa bed if required) and arm chair. There is a widescreen TV and DVD player, CD player and ipod dock. The cottage is within a BT wifi hotspot (free to BT customers). A selection of books and games are also provided, as well as maps and guidebooks. There's a round pine table with four chairs and a well-equipped modern kitchen with gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher, a good set of pots, pans and utensils and a full set of crockery. Tea and coffee are provided. Upstairs there is a comfortable double bedroom with ample cupboard space, armchair and TV, and a light and airy white bathroom with WC, sink, bath and shower (above the bath). There is a quiet private garden with seating area and a lovely view of the church. We welcome babies and toddlers and can provide a travel cot and bedding, high chair and booster seat. We may be able to provide other kit if you need. We can recommend local adult DBS/CRB-checked baby-sitters and things to do with a small person (such as the wonderful Munchkins play cafe in Dorcheser!). One well behaved small or medium dog would be very welcome. More

About the neighbourhood
Beaminster is a pretty, bustling market town, 6 miles inland from the coast. Its Ham stone buildings lie nestled amongst the surrounding gently rolling hills and woodland. We love the local food shops -- Angie's fruit and veg shop, Nick Tetts the butcher, the Evershot Bakery which does the best cobber loaf we know, and Le Vieux Four patisserie for delicious coffee and pastries. And there's also a smart little Co-op open 7am-11pm, 7 days a week for papers, groceries, drinks and other essentials. There are several good cafes and restaurants, such as the luxurious and cosy Bridge House Hotel. And there are plenty of 'browsing' shops too, including two branches of Cilla and Camilla with clothes, kitchenware, gifts and toys, Pomegranate with kilims and Spanish pottery, and Ann Day with art de...
