If you were looking for cottages like The Guardhouse, how about trying these:

Snuggled into the hillside with Golden Cap behind, The Guardhouse stands watch over this stunning part of the Jurassic Coast at Seatown, with sea views from the master bedroom and one of the twin rooms, you are just 50 metres from the water's edge. This fabulous family home has four bedrooms and plenty of space to just enjoy being on holiday; courtyard areas allow you to follow the sun and dine on the terrace morning and evening, taking in the sound of the waves and sea air. The large kitchen looks out over Langdon Woods and Golden Cap, a separate dining-room seats eight and the double length sitting-room has a cosy wood-burner and a Smart TV.

This spacious 18th Century semi-detached stone cottage has an interesting history and is understood to have been built to house officers on the lookout for smugglers, which were very prevalent along this stretch of the coast.
