Jurassic Coast Dorset
We had an amazing and relaxed stay at Coastguards Retreat. The location is so peaceful and the views stunning. My favourite view was looking out east from the dual aspect upstairs bedrooms to the trees reflected on The Fleet. The house is beautifully presented throughout and the owners have thoughtfully included a few nice to haves like the coffee machine, wine fridge, and picnic equipment to borrow - perfect for a trip to the beach. And despite feeling a million miles from anywhere it was still only 20mins into Dorchester or Weymouth. There are lots of things to do and visit nearby that are suitable for all ages. We will definitely need to visit again to get through them all! The pictures online tempted us to book, but it was even better than we could have imagined.
Ben has thought of everything you will ever need at his lovely home. Views are simply magical. Sunset was beautiful to witness. Perfect, charming pub within walking distance along the track towards the village. Dined by candle light and star gazed with our children on the walk home. Within easy reach of Lyme Regis and the perfect beaches along the Jurassic Coast. Our children loved the walkie talkies and telescope, running free in the adjacent fields and watching the movements of the wildlife. Thank you for a truly restorative stay.
By far the best (holiday rental) property I have secured. Beautiful surroundings - if you peace, stunning views then this cottage is everything you need. The fine details, decor and lovely host Ben make it ideal. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you!
A place of pure relaxation. From the moment we checked in, we felt at home. The decor was beautiful, lots of thought and care has gone into setting up this property as a holiday let and it had everything we needed. We travelled with a 1 year old and he was suited to the property. High chairs, cot and dining material were of a great quality and very clean. Everything was just perfect and we really hope to visit again in the future.
This is an absolutely beautiful property - you couldn’t ask for a better view and nicer place to spend your day. Everything you could think of is available and there are thoughtful touches in every room. You will not be disappointed.
Peaceful, warm and inviting this spotless, beautifully considered home has been a dream. Ben has thought of of everything. The star of the show naturally are the mesmerising views and the tranquillity of the surrounding area. Truly stunning and so restorative. Dinner at The Elm a short stroll away was delicious as is the coastline.
Such an incredible location – we really don’t want to leave. The house has been beautifully renovated and is incredibly comfortable and well supplied.
A splendid stay in the most fabulous holiday home. This has been the perfect place to relax and unwind.
What an amazing cottage! This place is a gem. We stayed a week here and wish we stayed even longer. The juxtaposition of views, peaceful tranquillity, and proximity to so many wonderful places to explore is unmatched. Highly recommended.
Coastguards Retreat has provided our family with the most wonderful escape. A stunning location and a beautiful property.
I travelled to the UK from Kansas, USA. This stay at Coastguards Retreat has been the highlight of my trip. What a beautiful home in such a gorgeous location.
