This charming cottage is set in the heart of a picturesque Dorset village and has excellent amenities on the doorstep. The ideal base for a relaxing break within easy reach of the Jurassic Coast and Bridport

Brimming with country charm, tranquil tones and sociable spaces, this gorgeous cottage sleeps four across two bedrooms and is perfect for a break with family and friends. Less than 2 miles from the bustling hub of Bridport, and 2 miles from the dog-friendly sands at Eype, bring a pair of four-legged friends along and enjoy having a ball together. With creature comforts to welcome you back home after adventures, light the wood burner to get cosy or sit with a tipple in the pretty courtyard for an al fresco evening.

Set in a courtyard of cottages, wander through the picket gate, step up, and make your way inside your home from home. Beautifully fresh and inviting, the open-plan lounge/diner is a brilliant space in which to spend time. Throw a log on the wood burner and settle with a book, switch on the TV for a film night, or pop open a bottle and enjoy a games night for a competitive end to your day. When it’s time to cook up a storm, tear yourselves away from the comfortable sofas and head into the kitchen. Contemporary yet classic style creates a lovely atmosphere for the designated chef, and you will find all you need to throw together everything from tasty picnics to three-course feasts which can be enjoyed either inside or out. Climb stairs to rest your head in one of two wonderful bedrooms, one of which boasts a handy en-suite. Start your day with a soak in the family bathroom before heading downstairs for a morning coffee. There is parking in a nearby, free, public car park.

Pack your swimmers and head for a beach day at the local beach of Eype, which welcomes dogs all year round and sits beneath the dramatic peak of the Golden Cap. Tuck into a picnic or treat yourselves to a meal at a local eatery in the quiet village. For an inland adventure, travel 6 miles to the National Trust’s Pilsden Pen, home to a range of walks, far-reaching views and steeped in interesting history.

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

A lovely cottage on a beautiful estate. It was a comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Would definitely stay there again. The surrounding landscape is stunning. The local town of Bridport is just up the road with everything that you need. We also had a lovely welcome pack on arrival full of goodies from Read morethe local farm shop. Hide

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.
