A picture-postcard thatched cottage located in Winfrith Newburgh village, this property offers the elusive mix of authentic charm, style and plenty of luxuries for all generations to appreciate.

This property is a charming three-bedroom thatched cottage with delightful wooden beams throughout and a quaint country style in Winfrith Newburgh. This cosy and characterful property is tastefully presented and just metres away from a public footpath that runs along a stream – ideal for wandering around the local area. Its proximity to the local pub (0.5 miles), shop (1.5 miles) and coast (3 miles) make it an enviable location for families to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Enter the cottage via a side gate into the pretty garden, which has a BBQ and lawn area to relax in, and head into the kitchen diner. Pine furnishings and stone flooring transport you back in time, but all the modern appliances make sure you can cook up a storm. Move through into the cosy lounge and snuggle up in front of the inglenook fireplace with a good book or enjoy the morning at the window seat. Between the lounge and kitchen is a small shower room that’s perfect for a quick rinse off after a day at the beach. Head up the winding staircase in the lounge to a cosy double bedroom (mind your head on the wood beams!) with an en-suite; have a soak in the freestanding bath to add a boutique feel to your stay. Up a second set of stairs in the kitchen, a twin room and bunk room give the kids their own quarters; they’ve got access to the double’s en-suite bathroom a couple of steps up.

Winfrith Newburgh is just 3 miles from famous Durdle Door; take a walk along the South West Coast Path for 1.5 miles and visit Lulworth Cove for stunning seas and spectacular views. Climb the tower at Lulworth Castle (6 miles) for fantastic panoramic views of the Purbeck countryside and the Jurassic Coast.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was very clean and tidy on arrival. The beds were comfy. Watch your head on the way in if youre over 59. Location is great for Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Also easy access to nearby towns by car or bus. Not too far to the Red Lion for a drink in the evening.

Fantastic cottage in a lovely quiet village and only 5 to 10 mins from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. It has a really nice atmosphere and is very well kitted out. It was bakingly hot during our stay and our dog was very appreciative of the shady spots in the garden and the cool flagstone floors. It is worth noting the stairs to the bedrooms are steRead moreep and narrow, definitely not suitable for anyone with mobility issues (& also interesting if you've had a couple of glasses of wine!). A great find. Hide

It was comfortable but needed a bit of refreshing. The downstairs had just the right amount of space for six of us. Upstairs was a bit tight and negotiating the stairs was a bit of a trial. The location was great though and the Rayburn and open fire kept the house nice and warm.

Great towels & comfy beds. Staircases may be tricky for those with poor mobility. Lovely large kitchen where we spent most of our time. Great location, particularly liked Lulworth Cove. Cottage is a little tired in places but didn't stop our enjoyment. Friendly village where we found some nice dog walks close by.

Perfect for 6 good friends who like beach, pub, spectacular scenery and walking. Village is pretty in parts but is completely dead.

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.
