The Cottage stands in a quiet setting by a bridge at the foot of the ancient Eggardon Hill Fort and offers a very comfortable base from which to explore the deep valleys and hills of this unspoilt part of South West Dorset, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Jurassic Coast at West Bay which featured on the TV drama Broadchurch is 5 miles away.

Powerstock itself is an attractive and very ancient village mentioned in The Domesday Book; standing on a mound above the village its imposing church dates from Norman times. There are two pubs, The Three Horseshoes and The Marquess of Lorne  offering good, Dorset produced food, within walking distance of the cottages.

A spectacular stretch of the Dorset Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is within easy driving distance, encompassing Lyme Regis (famous 600' Quay, rock pools & fossils), Charmouth (good sandy beach), West Bay (sea fishing off the pier and beach and setting for ITV's 'Broadchurch'), and Abbotsbury, (Chesil Beach, swannery & subtropical gardens).
