The picturesque village of Burton Bradstock, Hive Beach, West Bay with lovely harbour and the market town of Bridport are all close and after you have unpacked and ready to explore are well worth visiting.
Lilliput welcomes two well-behaved dogs although the owners do ask not to leave them unattended. The numerous eating places such as The New Inn, The Anchor and Hive Beach Cafe are all dog friendly. Venture to the west and you will find the tallest cliff in the South coast - Golden Cap. Charminster and Lyme Regis famous for their fossils are close by too.

Burton Bradstock is a pretty village famous for its sandstone cliffs. You can reach the nearby villages of West Bay and West Bexington along the South West Coast Path. Burton Bradstock has a few pubs, a post office, tearooms, and cafes. The cliffs show alternate hard and soft layered geology of the Bridport Sands which make it appear to glow bright gold in the sunlight, a spectacular and mesmerizing sight. A break in the cliff formation provides access to the National Trust owned Hive Beach. The beach is very popular with families and is a favourite with visitors and locals who enjoy walking their dogs and enjoying a meal at The Hive Beach Cafe. The village also plays host to the wonderful Spring Tide Food Festival each May. This gives visitors the chance to sample and buy local produce including a selection of local beer and cider.
