A wonderful abode for a family reunion or time away with friends, make yourselves at home just 2 miles from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Sleeping 17 guests across 8 bedrooms, this opulent home has plenty to keep guests of all ages entertained. Swim, bubble or soak the night away in the indoor pool, the hot tub or the sauna before enjoying an al fresco aperitif and a peaceful night’s sleep. Bring three of your beloved dogs along and have a ball with all the family.

Exuding style and sophistication, this grand home has all you need for lazy days at home or to welcome you back from adventures in the great outdoors. First things first, pop the kettle on and brew a warming mug of tea to enjoy in the bright lounge, where sumptuous sofas invite you to relax in front of the Smart TV. Watch your favourite programme or gather fellow guests and head to the cinema room for a film night filled with treats. After cooking up a storm or rustling up side dishes for a BBQ in the contemporary kitchen, plate up in style at the table or head outside for an al fresco banquet. Step up to the gorgeous, pergola-covered seating area to tuck in before bubbling the night away in the hot tub. A pair of dishwashers are a welcome sight and mean you can enjoy one more tipple before bed rather than washing up. Eight bedrooms reside over the ground, first and second floor (take care of restricted headspace and pillars in the attic room) and offer beautiful spaces in which to drift off and dream. There is ample off-road parking.

A holiday in Dorset wouldn’t be complete without a day on the beach. Closest to home, Eype (2 miles) welcomes dogs all year round and sits beneath the Golden Cap, with a plethora of walks to break up your sandy day. For a night off from the kitchen, the local village of Symondsbury is home to a friendly pub, or pick up delicious goodies in Bridport (1.5 miles).

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

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

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.
