Charming traditional thatched cottage set within a pretty rural hamlet. Ideally placed for trips to the coast, touring the rolling Dorset countryside or planning walks on the South West Coast Path

The peaceful hamlet of Coombe Keynes is made up of a number of traditional Dorset properties and nestles within picturesque countryside, making it the ideal base for walking and cycling. For those wishing to tour there are many attractions in the local area to be explored. Head 3 and half miles south to the much photographed Lulworth Cove and for a dose of history head to Lulworth Castle en route. The nearby village of Wool has a good choice of amenities or for a wider selection explore the walled town of Wareham, before taking a boat trip down the river or trying your hand at kayaking. A pathway leads from the roadside to the entrance into this end of terrace single cottage.

Step into the inviting lounge, which has a striking inglenook fireplace complete with wood burner and a TV. There is space to dine just opposite and to the rear of the property you will find the contemporary galley kitchen. With all the conveniences of contemporary living, this space has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. Leading on from here is the bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC. Heading back into the lounge and up the very steep and winding cottage style stairs brings you to the two bedrooms, one a cosy single and the other a charming double. Due to the age of the property there are areas of restricted head height, low beams and uneven floors throughout, which only adds to its character and charm.

Heading outside from the kitchen you will find a garden, mostly laid to lawn, with a terrace immediately to the rear of the property. Here you can enjoy a drink or meal at the table and chairs. To the rear of the cottage are two off-road parking spaces.

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

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.
