A former post office, this characterful building has been lovingly updated to provide all the conveniences of modern living and is set in a fantastic central position within a charming Dorset village.

Brilliantly located for a family trip to Dorset, call this humble abode home and enjoy days at the beach. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is just 2 miles from your door and the bustling market town of Bridport is even closer. Sleeping five guests across three rooms, bring a pair of dogs along to enjoy the holiday with you and spend time cosied up by the wood burner, bouncing the night away on the trampoline or sipping a glass of something cold in the garden.

Wander the paved path to make your way inside at the rear of this quaint home. Once inside, forget about unpacking for a while and get snug in the cosy lounge. Get the open fire roaring, sink into the comfortable sofa and switch on the TV to unwind after your journey. Heading into the kitchen/diner, a wood burner promises to keep you toasty as you cook up a storm. Spacious and stylish, enjoy spending time experimenting with flavours before plating up at the table and raising a glass to time spent together. If nights are balmy, take a post-dinner tipple outside and admire the views over the surrounding fields, or head to the games room and challenge fellow guests to a game of table tennis. After lively nights, head upstairs to rest your head in one of three bedrooms, one of which has a TV for perfect lazy mornings under the covers, and all of which share the family bathroom. Wake up feeling revived and enjoy a refreshing shower before heading out to explore. There is ample off-road parking.

Head to the coast for fossil hunting, stick chasing and sea swimming adventures. Sitting below the Golden Cap, Eype Beach welcomes dogs all year round whilst the iconic beaches at West Bay (3.5 miles) have restrictions during summer months. Treat yourselves to a night off from the kitchen and enjoy a meal out in the vibrant hub of Bridport, where an eclectic arts scene, foodie delights and a plethora of quirky shops await.

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.
