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 are many local pubs in the village and at Herston, 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.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
