Cosy former dairy with fantastic views and a wood burner. The ideal base for a relaxing break surrounded by beautiful countryside and with easy access to the beach and charming country pubs.

Sleeping two guests, this single storey romantic hideaway in rural West Dorset is part of a complex of properties, each with its own stylish interiors, and a large shared paddock where you can enjoy nature walks and picnics by the river. Hop on two wheels and amble towards the local shop and pub in Mosterton village, less than a mile away. Or enjoy a morning hike to Pilsdon Pen or a drive to see the Giant of Cerne Abbas hillside figure. The charming town of Beaminster is also close by (4.5 miles), and you’re 12 miles from the sea.

Take three steps down to the front door of your holiday home and step inside to contemporary country-style interiors with sophisticated hues enhancing original features. The well-equipped kitchen, utility, dining, and living area are open-plan style, and you can snuggle up by the cosy wood burner and watch favourite films. Enjoy sweet slumber in your stylish king-size bedroom which has an en-suite, before making plans around the breakfast bar the next morning. Outside, there’s a small bistro table and chairs, and beyond this a shared BBQ patio where you can meet new friends for sunset banter, or take a stroll in the gorgeous paddock.

Try to tear yourself away from this idyllic retreat to explore the wonders of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Teeming with fossils and dinosaur tales, it’s also a coast of long sandy strands to walk and clifftop trails on the South West Coast Path which leads all the way to Somerset. In Lyme Regis (16 miles), discover the array of craftwork and galleries with talented artisans in the Town Mill. Source food, crafts, plants, clothing, at weekly markets in Bridport (11 miles); the town also hosts regular vintage markets and farmers’ markets.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
