A delightful 18th Century thatched farmhouse, perfect for those looking for a family or group holiday in Dorset. Situated just under three miles from the bustling market town of Bridport and just under two miles from the village of Symondsbury.

This lovely Dorset village provides shops with local produce including fresh bread, pastries, cheese and local beer, gin and wine - you won’t have to go far for these tasty essentials. Browse amongst gorgeous blooms such as peonies, hydrangeas and clematis in the Charles Chesshire nursery and stock up on logs at the old Dutch Barn. Bike hire is available in the village to enjoy a ride along the bike trail accessed from the property. If walking is more your thing, you’ll love the various walking trails, especially the captivating Colmer’s Hill with its path right to the top and spectacular panoramic views out to sea and across the rolling countryside of Dorset. Bridport, there is a larger selection of shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a lively arts scene and vintage and farmers’ markets. The nearby fishing village of West Bay is also only three miles away with its pretty harbour and beach.

Entering this beautiful red brick farmhouse, you will find an open-plan light filled kitchen/diner, the ideal place to start the day, it has the original beams and stonework, along with a fireplace and open fire. The kitchen is well-equipped with a Range oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, it is just the place to rustle up a warming breakfast in the morning. Once the cooking is done head through to the cosy lounge and stretch out on the sofas and armchairs in front of the TV/DVD and the roaring wood burner, housed in its own traditional inglenook fireplace. When the time comes to lay your head down, head up the stairs to the first floor and you will find the a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) with an additional single bed with en-suite shower and WC. There is also the bathroom on this floor with hand held shower over bath and WC. Then heading up to the second floor is the super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) with an additional single bed with en-suite shower and WC and two king-size zip-and-links (which can be made into small twins on request)

Outside, summer living comes easy at this property. A delightful outside dining terrace overlooking rolling fields as far as the eye can see, is the perfect spot for balmy evenings chatting long into the night with friends and family over the gas BBQ. Whatever the weather, guests can sink into the hot tub for a little stargazing under the dark night sky. Those who aren’t ready for bed can challenge fellow guests to a game of table football or table tennis in the games room or have a bounce on the trampoline. Spend lazy days wandering the estate, by foot, bike or horse - you can even bring your equine friend on holiday with you if you fancy exploring the area on horseback.

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.
