In a nutshell: Walk to beach, pubs and shops, open fire, pet friendly. When it comes to holiday cottages Dorset has many within easy reach of some of the best beaches in the country, in and around Poole Harbour. One of the largest natural harbours in the world it boasts five islands, fabulous scenery, wonderful wildlife and exhilarating watersports. Poole's premier Blue Flag Beach is three miles of golden sand along the Sandbanks peninsula in Poole Bay. It has flown the European Blue Flag more times than any other British resort - 20 years - and was rated among the top five beaches in the country by a Tidy Britain Group resort survey. Across the harbour entrance is the wilder Studland Beach, three miles of gently sloping, sandy beach backed by grassy dunes stretching towards the limestone cliffs of Ballard Down including the famous Old Harry's Rocks.
