Stylish four bedroom property located on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Wareham. With plenty of garden space you can bring the whole family including the furry ones.

Nestled in peaceful surroundings within the spectacular Jurassic Coast lies this welcoming home from home family retreat, the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The property is well presented with a vibrant and warm feeling throughout, complemented by tasteful furnishings and fittings that make it easy to relax and unwind.

Entering into this attractive family home, the entrance hall is the ideal place to remove little muddy boots after your morning walk. Arranged over two floors, the downstairs living areas are bright and spacious where you can sit in the sunny conservatory enjoying breakfast as a family, before your day of adventures begins.

The property is ideally situated to visit the coast and Nature Reserves. While the property is spacious and the kitchen has everything you need, please note the Games room is actually for children and the owner lives next door.

Betula House is in a very quiet location, with a large garden on an estate with a very rural feel to it and we enjoyed watching the numerous birds, bats and squirrels.

Betula house is very comfortable and spacious. It is in a peaceful setting about a 15 minute walk from Wareham along a country lane and then the tow path of the River Frome. I had hoped we could walk to restaurants but that would be tricky at night - too dark. The house was very clean and tidy.

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.
