The Dorset region

Dorset is the ideal setting for a holiday with its stunning and varied landscapes ranging from rolling countryside to miles of sandy beaches.

The coast and countryside of Dorset has changed little since the times of Thomas Hardy, with scores of pretty villages, traditional pubs and miles and miles of breathtaking coastal scenery. The unique and dramatic Jurassic coastline is so special it has been honoured with natural World Heritage status, with UNESCO describing the site as "an outstanding example, representing a major stage of the earth's history and the record of life".

East Chaldon

The cottage is situated in the heart of East Chaldon, a delightful peaceful village in rural Dorset. With friendly village pub (The Sailors Return) a 2 minute walk away. The road outside the cottages leads to a track taking you directly to the fantastic world heritage coastal path. Great walks, cycles and beaches surround the area.

Dorchester is a market town 8 miles from East Chaldon with many fantastic independent and high street shops. With a selection of supermarkets (Waitrose, Tesco, Co-operative and Sainsbury's) everything is within easy reach.

Local attractions include Monkey World (http://www.monkeyworld.org/), Bovington Tank Museum, Hardy's cottage and the Jurassic coast.
