Surrounded by National Trust land on a quiet lane, this unique, family-friendly property boasts unparalleled access to Dorset’s diverse assembly, from history to culture, and from country to coast.

Encompassed by jaw-dropping scenery, there is an endless invitation to explore the area. From the chalky ridge of the Purbeck Hills to the unmissable Jurassic Coast, hours and days of adventures are yours for the taking. For a taste of local history, the 11th century Corfe Castle is only 4.5 miles away from the property and absolutely worth a trip. Meanwhile, the coastal town of Swanage is a 3-mile drive and home to lots of shops, eateries and attractions. For a home-cooked meal washed down with a local beverage of choice there is a village pub and the resort town of Swanage is 2 miles away.

Upon entering the property, the first port of call is the lounge. Equipped with comfy seating and an open fire, it is a cosy space throughout the year offering plenty of entertainment from books, to your favourite TV shows, to the brilliant views from the windows. The next doorway in the hall leads you to the dining area. With space for all the family to sit around the dining table, long lunches and evening meals can be enjoyed by all. Accessed via a step up, the kitchen is well-equipped with an oven, electric hob, fridge, freezer, microwave and toaster. For extra convenience, there are also the additions of a dishwasher and washing machine, too. With work surfaces down one side of the kitchen, a breakfast bar runs along the opposite wall: the perfect spot to sit and natter or gaze out onto the garden outside. When you are ready to unwind, the steep, cottage-style stairs lead you to the property’s bedrooms. Here, soothing tones create clean, crisp spaces just right for letting your mind drift off. Offering everyone in your party a comfortable place to sleep, the three bedrooms include a double and two twin rooms. A generous family bathroom is also upstairs, with WC, sink and bath with shower overhead.

Outside, a south-facing garden with shared access is home to a summerhouse, BBQ and patio, ideal for al fresco repasts with the family.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
