This spacious house is set within the charming village of Corfe Castle, home to one of Dorset’s most iconic landmarks and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful county and the Jurassic Coast

Boasting privacy, location and oodles of comfort, this idyllic cottage is perfect for groups of friends or small families looking to enjoy all that Dorset has to offer. Tucked away on a sleepy no-through lane in Dorset’s Corfe Castle, you are less than 1 mile from a smattering of pubs and eateries and less than 5 miles from the sea. Treat yourselves to hours of unadulterated adventure and return to your home from home, ready to relax with a cool G&T in the garden.

Access the property via a short flight of steps or garden pathway and head inside. Upon entering your new favourite place to be, the hallway leads you through to the open-plan lounge/diner. A bright, cheerful room with lots of light from the garden, there is ample space to spread out and settle in. From early morning breakfasts to afternoons in the glass-fronted conservatory area to evenings of board games and treats, there is a truly cosy atmosphere to this room that will appeal to all generations. Further inside, a well-equipped kitchen awaits with all the trappings you could wish for. Conjure up family feasts and serve them around the dining table or, if the weather is kind, prepare picnics to share in the enclosed garden. When the day ends, head upstairs to the two bedrooms. Located on the first floor, you will find a welcoming king-size bedroom and a separate twin, both offering gorgeous views.

Only 5 miles from Swanage, benefit from easy access to lively streets and sweeping beaches. Choose from one of the many cafes and restaurants for something to eat or pick up some takeaway fish and chips and overlook the infinite blue horizon. Offering further choice, nearby Kimmeridge (5 miles) and Studland (6 miles) have great beaches and lots going on.

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.
