This delightful cottage is set in a tranquil spot on the outskirts of Beaminster. The property is bursting with country-cottage charm and looks out over open countryside. Relax in the peaceful sunroom with a book or sip a glass of wine in the pretty enclosed garden. The cottage is the ideal base for keen walkers, with a multitude of fantastic routes nearby, including past the iconic Cerne Abbas Giant (14.5 miles). The Jurassic Coast is within easy reach, where you’ll find delights such as Bridport (6.5 miles), West Bay (8 miles) and Lyme Regis (17 miles).

Two steps lead to the detached property and into the boot room, ideal for storing all your walking gear. The fabulous dining room, with a roaring wood burner, features a large table to seat eight guests. Dine together before retreating to the cosy lounge to warm your toes in front of another wood burner and watch the TV/DVD. Under the stairs, little ones will be thrilled to find a cute play area. The stairs lead to a half landing and the family bathroom, before continuing to the four bedrooms. To the rear of the property, there’s a beautiful enclosed garden with a split-level lawn and patio area with furniture. To the front, there’s a further lawn with a bench for you to sit and take in your peaceful surroundings.

Head south to explore the spectacular Jurassic Coast. The thriving market town of Bridport really is a must, with its quirky shops, vibrant arts scene, and fabulous eateries. From here, visit the gorgeous beach at West Bay, which is backed by dramatic cliffs and is well known for being the filming location for the TV drama Broadchurch.

Very clean, spacious house suitable for large families. Great views over the countryside and ideally located for short trips to other towns along the coast. Lovely enclosed front and rear gardens. Local shops and pubs only a short walk away. Highly recommend from a family of 6 and a cockapoo dog.

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.
