From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Carters Cottage boasts an idyllic location, set in an AONB and half a mile from the Jurassic Coast – perfect base for walkers.

These delightful holiday cottages are set in the peaceful conservation village of Puncknowle, an AONB. The Jurassic Coast is just 1½ miles away with superb scenic walking, along with use of 4 acres of grounds and footpaths. Each cottage is finished to a high standard offering very comfortable holiday accommodation and is set in the same smart courtyard area as the owners’ homes. The ‘chocolate-box’ village of Burton Bradstock is 3 miles with a good small beach. Abbotsbury, along the coast, has its famous swannery and sub-tropical garden. 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.

    Lovely cottage in excellent condition. The owner and extended family live close by, which was useful! They were all very pleasant and helpful. Only negative comment to make is the food at the pub in the village was not very good. Excellent other pubs within easy driving distance. Would definitely recommend Carter's Cottage and may well return.

    Lovely cottage, which easily accommodated our family party of seven adults and a dog. Would certainly book Carter's Cottage should we visit Dorset again.
