An ample gravelled parking area offers plenty of space for cars, and there’s also an attractive back garden with artificial lawn, paths, flower beds and a couple of seating areas where you can enjoy a BBQ. A back gate leads onto a National Trust footpath.

The tranquil coastal village of Studland makes a lovely base for exploring the Purbeck area of Dorset, with the vast Studland and Godlingston Heath just a mile away. 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. Other activities in the near vicinity include golf, horse-riding and a range of water sports. The historic village of Corfe Castle (5.5 miles) is renowned for the remains of a thousand-year-old castle, or you could head to the sea front in the Victorian coastal town of Swanage (3.5 miles) or meander along the river to visit Wareham (10.5 miles).

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.

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.
