Dating from the 1800’s, this stylish property is a great choice for a family holiday whatever the season. It boasts a village setting and easy access to some of the county’s best loved attractions.

Ideally placed for touring the Jurassic Coast, Winfrith Newburgh is well serviced with local amenities and is within 5 miles of both Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. The village is 10 miles east of the county town, Dorchester, or you could visit historic Wareham 8 miles to the west. Here you can walk within the old walls or enjoy lunch beside the river. Those looking for a family family-friendly day out can visit the Sea L life centre in Weymouth or Swannery in Abbotsbury. Corfe Castle is also well worth a visit too and is home to castle ruins cared for by the National Trust. You can often find steam trains running between here and the seaside town of Swanage, and all these attractions are within a 20 20-mile radius.

From the parking area, you can enter this charming, detached holiday home from the rear garden and enter the boot room. This is the ideal space to leave muddy footwear and coats. Next is the lovely kitchen/diner. This spacious and sociable room has an electric AGA as well as an electric oven and hob. There is also a microwave, American-style fridge/freezer and dishwasher. You can enjoy leisurely meals at the table just opposite or take your coffee into the beautiful conservatory, which has a grapevine weaving across the ceiling. Next to the kitchen is a useful utility room with WC, washing machine and tumble dryer. A hallway leads from here to the games room with table football and air hockey and a play room for younger guests. Heading back into the centre of the house is a cosy reading area within the snug, complete with a wood burner and a door to the inviting lounge, which has a Smart TV and wood burner. Heading upstairs from the snug takes you to the first floor. At the top of the stairs is a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC, and three of the four bedrooms. There is a king-size bedroom, a cosy bunk room, and a twin. At the end of the landing is a stylish king-size bedroom with Juliet balcony and en-suite bathroom, complete with freestanding bath, separate shower and WC.

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.
