This is a cosy and comfortable barn conversion is perfect for a couple or family looking for a rural idyll in the heart of the glorious Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This stylish two-bedroom barn conversion offers a peaceful, rural setting, in the small hamlet of Salwayash. It’s one of six homes surrounding a former farmyard which has been transformed with lawns, trees and perennials. This cosy and characterful property enjoys views across a wild valley, perfect for couples or families in search of a relaxing break. Its proximity to the local pub (400 metres), shop (1.5 miles) and coast (4 miles), makes it an enviable location.

As you enter through the stable door into a small hall, a step leads up to a large, open-plan living space where modern and traditional styles are perfectly combined. A high ceiling and exposed beams give a bright and spacious feel, with cosy sofas to curl up on after a long day of exploring. A well-equipped kitchen and dining area ensure you have everything you need if you fancy some home cooking. The bathroom with a shower over the bath is also on this level. Steps lead down from the living space into the inviting double bedroom. Heading upstairs, the attractive exposed staircase leads you to a small twin bedroom – just watch out for the sloping ceiling. An old grain door leads to external steps from here, too. From the lounge, you’ll find a peaceful rear, enclosed terrace and small lawn, with beautiful views across the valley, a haven for birds and butterflies. There is also off-road parking for two cars.

The village is a perfect base from which to explore the stunning Jurassic coastline, which offers endless different walks and hiking routes. The popular and lively town of Bridport is only 3 miles away, famous for its many different markets which sell delicious local produce. The bustling harbour town of West Bay is also close by, just 5 miles away.

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.
