Ideally placed spending for days spent exploring beautiful West Dorset and the Jurassic Coast, this charming Grade II listed cottage has everything you could need for a truly relaxing family holiday

Part of a pretty terrace in the small village of Uploders, this quintessentially English cottage is built from beautiful honey coloured stone and has a homely ambience, which is evident from the moment you step through the door. This property is in an ideal location for walkers wishing to explore the beautiful countryside and coastal footpaths or spend your days exploring the lovely local beaches including West Bay, Eype and Burton Bradstock. The nearby market town of Bridport has a vibrant high street including an eclectic selection of boutique shops selling vintage treasures, as well as essential supplies. Within a short drive is Furleigh Estate vineyard where you can sample its award winning sparkling wines. Take a trip to the Swannery and Children's Farm at Abbotsbury or wander around the Sub-tropical gardens. Whatever the weather you will find plenty to do.

From the quiet roadside take one step up to the front door. Once inside you are met with a hallway leading immediately to the lounge on the left, with a Smart TV, inglenook fireplace including ornamental feature wood burner and an original bread oven, this is the perfect spot in which to settle down in front of your favourite shows. There is a choice of toys to keep younger guests amused and a range of board games, ideal for spending afternoons enjoying quality time together. Just next door is the light and airy kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped for the best of cooks with an electric oven and hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge/freezer, coffee machine and dishwasher. A dining table here is the perfect place to enjoy your meals, accompanied by the sound of birdsong. When the day is done head back into the hallway where you will find the bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC. Next take the winding cottage style stairs to the first floor. Here you will find a bright and airy, dual aspect super-king-size bedroom decorated with care in calming colours to ensure a restful sleep. Adjacent is a cosy twin room with a view of the garden. Due to the age of the property there are character features throughout including narrow doorways, areas of restricted head height and uneven floors, which only adds to its charm.

To the rear of the cottage is a pretty terraced garden, which is fully enclosed and has a patio complete with garden furniture perfect for dining outdoors, plus narrow steps (care to be taken with children) to a further area of garden that has been laid to lawn and includes a fabulous wendy house for the little ones. To the front of the property there is roadside parking (subject to availability).

Great location, with good walks nearby and Crown Inn pub doing very good food. Cottage is really well equipped for doing own meals. Low beams are a 'feature' so beware if you're over 6'.

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.

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.
