This picture-postcard cottage oozes charm both inside and out and is ideally located for exploring the Dorset countryside and coastline.

Situated in the hamlet of Winfrith Newburgh, this 18th-century mid-row thatched cottage is truly spectacular. From the outside with its character charm to the inside with its mix of traditional aspects and stylish interior, this property offers the best of both worlds. The local shop is only 100 yards away, and the local pub is just a mile from the cottage.

Stepping down into the beautiful light and airy sitting room, you’ll notice the quaint period features: exposed brickwork, flagstone floor, and wood burner. The kitchen/dining room is well designed to maximise the space and adds a modern touch to this characterful property. A further reception room follows on with additional period features and this can be used as a formal dining room for family dinners or a playroom for the children. A bathroom with a bath and separate shower completes the ground floor. Upstairs, there are two good-sized bedrooms decorated in neutral tones which complement the natural light that pours in from the sweet cottage-style windows. There are reduced-height ceilings on this floor so do watch your head. Downstairs, step outside where you will find a lovely seating area for dining alfresco as well as sun loungers for soaking up the sun. Parking is available on the village street.

If family days out are more your thing, this property provides a central base for access to Weymouth (5 miles) and Poole (10 miles). A lesser known place to visit is the village of Wool where you’ll find a monkey sanctuary housing over 240 animals. You can watch them feed, or you can observe your own little monkeys playing in the children’s play area with rope swings! For those interested in history, the Tank Museum at Wool is also well worth a visit.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 double and 1 twin, both with reduced height in the eaves
  • 1 ground floor bathroom with shower cubicle and WC
  • Oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine
  • TV
  • iPod dock
  • Garden with furniture
  • Central heating included
  • Wood burner - logs included October - end of April
  • Wi-Fi included

We were welcomed with honey, biscuits, cider and a beautiful bouquet of flowers - a nice start to the holiday.The kitchen was very cosy and well equipped. The garden was lovely, well furnished and enclosed, perfect for our little dog. Only drawback was the very busy road, in particular tractors due to harvest activity, so we did find it quite noisyRead more when sitting in the lounge. Hide

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.
