Full of character, this 16th century Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoys an idyllic location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, equidistant to Weymouth and Lyme Regis – perfect for making the most of countryside and coast.

A picture-postcard thatched cottage in Burton Bradstock, this property for two guests has the whole package. Homely interiors, nearby shop (10 yards) and pub (25 yards) and access to rolling coastline, you will be spoilt for choice for things to see and do. With so much on offer, enjoy relaxation and exploration in equal measures and let the charm of this Grade II-listed cottage win you over entirely.

A 16th-century terrace cottage, this property has history and character in abundance. Step up through the front door and head into the lounge. A spacious room with wood burner, you can immediately make yourself at home. Sink into the sofa and turn on the TV or bury yourself in a book. From the lounge, a small step up takes you towards the kitchen. Cute and compact, the kitchen has all the appliances and utensils you could need, including oven and hob. Also, on the ground floor is the wet room, fitted with shower and WC. Up the steep, cottage-style stairs you can find the bedroom, sporting soothing tones and a 5ft double bed. In true period fashion, the bedroom has a low window and some reduced head height in the eaves. Outside, there is a garden accessed via more steps. Split over different tiers, you can make use of the garden’s seating or take a blanket onto the lawn for summer picnics.

Boasting great access to local amenities and attractions, you don’t have to go far for action. Less than 1 mile from the beach, walk along the shoreline and breathe in fresh sea air, before paying a visit to one of the seafront cafes. Only 2 miles from West Bay, a trip to this small harbour village is definitely recommended. For shopping, Bridport (3 miles) is the place to go.

Location

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.
