Further east is the Victorian seaside town of Weymouth, with Blue Flag beach, sea fishing, windsurfing, Sealife Centre and two rspb nature reserves. Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool are great places for a family day out. Dorchester, the county town also known as Thomas Hardy’s ‘Casterbridge’ is 30 minutes’ drive and has a lively weekly market and beautiful Maiden Castle. To the west is the market town of Bridport which was Thomas Hardy’s ‘Port Bredy’ and has the twice weekly market as featured in the popular TV programme River Cottage. The picturesque harbours of West Bay are a great place for fishing. Lyme Regis is an attractive seaside resort which enjoys a dramatic setting with high cliffs, landslips and handsome harbour, known as The Cobb. Both Lyme Regis and Charmouth are renowned for their prehistoric fossils which are displayed in the local museum and on sale in the fossil shops. Local pub serving good food 250 yards.

    "We had a great few days with our two dogs. Great beach at Burton Bradstock. Great pub food at the Three Barrels. Made very welcome by the owner of the cottage."
    Laura ‐ 2 Nov 2018
    "We absolutely loved our stay at Sawmill Cottages, the cottage was lovely and warm on our arrival and the owner was very welcoming. We were surprised at how spacious the cottage was and had a very comfortable stay. Thank you! We would definitely stay here again."
    Lia ‐ 24 Oct 2018
    "We loved the spacious kitchen and living room! The bedrooms were cosy and the bathroom were fine. Alan was very kind and helpful, and the place was spotless. The only reasons for decreasing a little my overall evaluation are the strong smell of kerosene in the hall (fortunately we could close the door to the kitchen and limit the smell in there, and the fact that the flue of the boiler exits directly on the seating area outside. A flue extension seems necessary!"

    "Spacious property, well equipped. Comfortable chairs but hard beds. Good starting point for exploring local coast and countryside. Little in the village but an active community."
    Dawn ‐ 2 Sep 2018
    "Beautiful cottage well equipt with everything we needed. We would definitely go back here again."
    Kevin ‐ 22 Aug 2018
    "Over priced, downstairs was roomy but nothing special. Upstairs was not good. Led to believe 3 rooms when only two and kept hitting heads on low beams Overall not good and wouldn’t reckonend or stay again"

    "Had a lovely week at sawmill cottage, very friendly locals, you need a car as there isn't a shop near by but a beautiful place to visit cottage lovely"
    MARTIN ‐ 14 Jul 2018
    "A lovely cottage situated a nice distance from many excellent places to visit. Superb local pub and great dog walks. Beaches close but tend to be pebbles rather than sand. Dorset is my favorite county to visit, it is simply stunning!"
    Dianne ‐ 6 Jun 2018
    "We booked S19684 and Woodmans Cottage for a family celebration. Our Party of 10 had a great time and our 2 dogs were right at home in the contained garden. We would have no hesitation in booking both cottages again. We all enjoyed our stay and our hosts were friendly and informative about the area.We were lucky enough to have good weather and were able to visit all the places on our list as well as try our hand at mackerel fishing and fossil hunting! The Crown is within a two minute walk and is highly recommended.A perfect long weekend."

    "The host Alan was helpful and informative. The cottage was surprisingly spacious & the layout of the second bedroom with 3 beds (one round the corner) worked really well so they didn't feel cramped. So much to do in the area: beaches, waterparks, nice towns. Food options were great; lovely pub in village (crown) and about 2 mins drive away the Manor House and the Club House in W Bexington which were both excellent. Hive cafe in burton bradstock. Although the garden is tiny at the cottage, you are able to get onto footpath in about 20 seconds and lots of nice walks with the dog to be had. Highly recommend."
    Harry ‐ 24 Mar 2018
    "Our third visit to the cottage - always clean, tidy and warm - although it was Match we had over 10cms if snow and it was comforting to come back to a warm house. Alan the owner is on site and always helpful and available"
    Vivienne ‐ 21 Mar 2018
    "Lovely cottage and location had a wonderful time. Would definitely stay here again."
    Helen ‐ 26 Jan 2018
    "We stayed for 28 days 12/12/17-8/1/18 with our 2 dogs. Definitely the best, most relaxed Christmas and New Year ever. The cottage has absolutely everything you could need, a very well equipped kitchen (including everything required to cook a full Christmas dinner), comfortable seating, always lovely and warm. There is a useful entrance hall for coats/boots and wet dogs which we found really useful. The owner, Alan was on hand if anything was needed and always pleased to help. The cottage was decorated for Christmas with a pretty tree and Alan supplied us with wine and mince pies which was a nice touch. Very handy fenced off walk amongst the Hazelnut trees on the farm for our dogs and plenty of lovely walks around the village and beyond. Such a wonderful find in a pretty village with a great pub only a few hundred yards away. Will definitely recommend to our friends."
