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.

One of Dorset’s best-known landmarks; Corfe Castle is set high on the hillside overlooking this picturesque village. Owned by the National Trust, you can explore the ruins and take in the wonderful views from the top. There are plenty of local amenities to choose from within these historic surrounds and fabulous walks to be had, which wind through rolling countryside. Ideally placed for touring, head south to the traditional seaside town of Swanage, where you can indulge in some fresh seafood or relax on the sandy beach. Travelling back inland will bring you to a choice of popular attractions, including Monkey World and the Tank Museum, which are ideal for a fun filled day out.

The semi-detached cottage is approached via driveway from the residential no through road where it is situated. A step leads to an entrance hall, which is the ideal place to leave muddy boots. Once inside, to the left is an inviting lounge with open fire and TV. Just next door is a comfortable dining room, the ruins of Corfe Castle can be seen across the countryside from both rooms. Set to the back of the property is kitchen with a Range style oven and gas hob, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a handy separate WC here and next door is a useful utility space with washing machine, tumble dryer and American style fridge/freezer. Heading back into the lounge to the front hallway you will find the staircase rising to the first floor. Immediately ahead of you is a separate WC, with the bathroom next door, with a shower over bath. Completing the property are the three bedrooms, one cosy twin and two doubles.

A door from the kitchen leads into the rear garden of the property. A patio area sits directly behind the cottage, with steps leading up to a second area with garden furniture ideal for dining outdoors. Head across the lawn to the rear gate, which brings you onto the footpath leading directly to Corfe Common. There is off-road parking for two cars to the front of the property.

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.
