This welcoming property is set on the outskirts of the pretty village of Corfe Castle. Its inviting dog friendly garden and proximity to great walks makes it the ideal base for a family holiday.

With views over the ruins of Corfe Castle, direct access to Corfe Common, and creature comforts, this charming dwelling is perfect for family, friends and pups to escape to. Sleeping six across three bedrooms, spend days exploring, stick chasing and sea swimming before returning home for sundowner evenings on the terrace. The golden sands of Swanage and neighbouring, dog-friendly Monkey Beach, are just 5 miles from home, so you can pack your towels and your picnic and head out for beach days close to home.

Step up and into this characterful abode which is brimming which country charm and welcoming spaces. The open fire will be a hit with all guests, both two and four-legged, and is a real treat after long sandy, muddy days spent in the great outdoors. Settle down on one of the sofas and delve into a book from the shelf, or challenge fellow guests to a game of scrabble for a competitive afternoon in. Colourful tiles and lots of natural light create a relaxing cooking environment in the kitchen. Experiment with flavours on the Range-style oven and find the fridge/freezer in the utility room, a handy space to wash and dry clothes and leave outer layers and shoes in between adventures. Find three bedrooms on the first floor, all with bursts of colour and all you need to drift off in peace. Take your morning coffee outside and step up to the patio for a breath of fresh air and lovely views. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Leave the car behind and head straight from the garden onto the National Trust’s Corfe Common, great for a game of fetch and to spot wildlife. From the common, spy the remains of Corfe Castle and walk less than a mile to wander the magical remnants of this charming building. Follow the Purbeck Ridgeway trail from Corfe Castle, past the Old Harry Rocks to Swanage, and catch a glimpse of The Needles on The Isle of Wight on a clear day. The walk is approximately 9 miles in total, great for day’s hiking with your pup.

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

A fantastic cottage in the most beautiful location. Suited us particularly well with dogs as the walks were wonderful. The views of the Castle were amazing and we did not use the car all weekend. One needed to be able to walk a few miles to make the best of the location. Thank you Karen

Great location, really like Corfe, great cafes and pubs, in particular the Pink Goat. Good location for touring places such as Lulworth Cove, Swanage and Weymouth. Very dog friendly with some nice walks right out of the back gate to the garden

The cottage was very well equipped and had a lovely garden to sit in ( including a comfortable sofa and twinkling lights at night) with access to a picturesque walk on the common for our dog. It was nice to have a welcome gift of Dorset tea and biscuits and treats for our puppy.

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.
