Head to Dorset’s Purbeck Hills and make yourself at home in this pretty stone cottage in Worth Matravers. Up to six of you can stay at the three-bedroom, mid-terrace property, which also welcomes one dog. Soak up the sunshine in your private, courtyard garden; go for long walks through your picturesque surroundings and choose between great places to swim, from rocky coves to sandy beaches.

Step into this enchanting property to find bright, airy rooms, with flagstone and wooden floors. Enjoy the gorgeous natural light in the lounge, where you can light the open fire on colder days as you play games together or watch TV or a DVD.

Dine outside in the sunshine in the private courtyard and enjoy shared use of a lawned garden too. The Grade II-listed cottage comes with a permit for one car to use the village car park.

From the cottage, walk approximately 1 mile to the South West Coast Path, with its stunning views. Wander along the cliffs in either direction for more dramatic vistas of the Jurassic Coast. Clamber down on to the rocks at Winspit Quarry for a dip. Take children to swim at Swanage, 4 miles away, with its family-friendly sandy beach.

Fabulous base for walking the coastal paths, and so close to the fabulous Square and Compass. Lovely warm, comfortable and homely cottage to return to, with a wealth of books on the area. Just be aware of the lower three stairs when coming downstairs as they are very tricky.

This is a lovely, quirky cottage with an open fire. We have been visiting for several years because we love it so much. The location is wonderful for coastal walks and normally (Covid allowing) a pint & pastie afterwards at the Square & Compass - a unique & very unchanged pub

Clematis Cottage is a very cute cottage and the interior is decorated in a 'shabby chic' style which made the cottage very cosy. The open fire was left well stocked with kindling and logs and warmed up the lounge area very well. There are lots of excellent walks right on the step of the cottage and the pub is only 5 minutes walk away! The parking bRead moreay is difficult to get in and out of so we parked in the local car park which is five minutes walk away -take a torch as it's dark walk down at night! Hide

The cottage was a real home from home. A great cosy cottage for a lovely holiday (even in a wet and windy February). Brilliantly located for walks on the coast path and Corfe Castle.

A lovely, quiet location, about 20 mins walk to the coastal path. A cute, cottage full of character but needs updating and a bit of a deep clean. Had to wash up a number of kitchen utensils before use. Would have benefitted from more info about the property and equipment prior to arrival.

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.
