Stunning period property dating from the 1800s, benefitting from an array of period features, comfortable soft furnishings and all the latest modern conveniences.

This beautiful former dairy is located on the edge of the small hamlet of Coryates and has spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Located a very short drive (4 miles) from the breath taking Abbotsbury Swannery which provides home to 600 mute swans (which you can feed if you attend at feeding time. The Swannery provided inspiration to ballerina Anna Pavlova when she was working on her movements for Swan Lake, and parts of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince were also filmed there.

To get into this beautiful property walk up a couple of steps and through the porch and you’ll find yourself in the wooden floored hall. This leads into the cosy living room with a large stone fireplace held up by the original beams complete with the latest technology and comfortable furnishings that perfectly combine both original and contemporary stylings. French doors then lead into a triple aspect dining room and access to the rear garden of the property – the kitchen comes complete with a six-ring hob, cooker, fridge, washing machine, microwave, freezer, dishwasher and radio adjacent to this room also enjoys triple aspect windows that allow plenty of natural light to enter. There is also a utility room, a downstairs bathroom and a bedroom complete with en-suite. Moving upstairs, there is a further three bedrooms all having the ceiling height reduced due to the eaves of the property. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite, and there is a conveniently placed shower room for use by the other guests.

The garden to the rear of the property faces south and is home to terraces and an area for a BBQ complete. Elsewhere there is a summer house and herbaceous border, the ideal place to relax during the day, catch a bit of the sun and enjoy a glass or two.

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.
