The Coastguard cottages are part of a much larger Holiday Park, which includes static caravans and timber lodges. The beach is a few hundred yards away, so view is amazing, albeit over the top of caravans. We booked the accessible cottage, as my husband has mobility issues, though the path from car park was quite steep for a wheelchair. The cottage itself was fine, except there were one or two things we expected to find, like a frying pan and tea towels, salt and pepper, and which we failed to locate. As we were there in the snow, shopping was difficult, and we ran out of loo rolls, having to go to the office to find more. Also, the sheets on my double bed were not aired, and felt slightly damp on first night.
The location is great, within walking distance of two great pubs who served excellent food. Located between Weymouth & Lyme Regis, plenty of places to visit.
The cottage we stayed in needed updating, the sofas & double bed was uncomfortable and there was only a shower attachment to the bath taps which made it difficult to shower.
We were lucky and had good weather so did not spend much time there, but would not stay again unless it was updated
Lovely location if you want a quite holiday lovely dog friendly pubs in village thought they where quite expensive for food put the food was lovely ,beach cafe nearby never tried it because it was always very busy
We stayed at Cogden for 1 week as a family of four. The cottage was clean and inviting when we arrived. The sea view from the balcony was good and we spent every morning/evening out there taking in the fresh air and sound of waves. I also sat out and read my book and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet.
The kitchen had everything required for us to eat in when required and came with the added bonus of a dishwasher and washing machine!
The cottage is close to the beach, although shingly, is quiet and perfect for a day out. We enjoyed the coastal walks and breathtaking cliffs at Burton Bradstock and West Bay.
All in all a perfect location for a relaxing holiday in Dorset.
