Hide away in this rural retreat with your pooch – two if you wish. Wooden beams and an open fire make it super cosy inside, while a nearby lake and reed beds that surround the cottage make perfect exploring ground.
Sitting atop a hill on the Golden Cap Estate is this former farmworker’s cottage. It overlooks tree-framed vistas of the rolling countryside which gives way to the south Dorset coastline. There’s an enclosed garden for pup to stretch his legs and a ten mile stretch of the Golden Cap on your doorstep.
Oak Cottage is one of three terraced thatched houses nestling in the Dorset countryside close to the coast. Take pup for a walk along the World Heritage Site – The Golden Cap, or drive 15 minutes to dog-friendly beach, Eypemouth.
Once an isolation hospital, this cottage now forms a spacious holiday home with intriguing interiors from the pine-panelled walls to the galleried bedroom. Go on a heathland walk straight from your front door or drive to nearby dog-friendly beach, Kimmeridge Bay.
You'll get a real sense of the historical significance of this once working farm estate when you stay here. It's surrounded by a cider house, stable, granary, milking shed, cow shed and barn as well as way-marked paths leading to the coast.
