Nature-lovers can also explore Hartland Moor (7 miles) and RSPB Stoborough Heath (8 miles). There are three wonderful beaches on the National Trust’s Studland Bay, all easily accessible from the house, as well as spectacular coastal and heathland walks.

For a family or group of 8 adults and two grandchildren this is a perfect set up. Plenty of fridge and freezer space, well-equipped kitchen, good-sized bedrooms, excellent playroom facilities. And well within easy walking distance of local beaches, pub and restaurants. Quiet, light and airy, a perfect hub for a family holiday.

Reviewed by Mrs L Reece 2nd January 2019

it was beautiful, so spacious, plenty of room for all my family.very well equipped, everything we needed.The only thing we felt was that it was a bit chill downstairs. Upstairs the heaters in the bedroom could be controlled, but the underfloor heating downstairs in such a big space was not very effective.

Reviewed by Mrs J Le-Gall 31st August 2018

This was a beautiful home for all the family. All the Grandchildren enjoyed the garden and toys. We all loved the walks. There was everything we needed and the house looked beautiful with the Christmas tree and decorations.

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.
