Offering the best of both worlds, here you can stroll into the village centre or simply relax in the hot tub and take in the wonderful countryside views, whilst the little ones enjoy the trampoline.

Surrounded by rolling countryside, this picturesque Dorset village is the ideal base for days spent enjoying long walks or riding. The village itself has a vibrant centre, complete with pub, galleries and tea rooms and being situated near to the market town of Bridport, there is plenty to do here. Bridport has a varied selection of shops selling both essential supplies and vintage treasures, or head on to West Bay where you can watch the boats moving about the harbour or let off some steam on the beach. With good road links nearby, you can easily explore the many attractions lining the Jurassic Coast and admire the stunning scenery as you travel. A shared driveway leads to this detached cottage.

The main entrance can be found to the front of the property, accessed via a sloping gravel path that winds through the garden. Once inside you are met with an entrance hall giving access to the utility room, complete with washing machine, tumble dryer and WC, before heading into the inviting lounge. Full of character features, this welcoming room has an inglenook with wood burner and TV for those chilly winter evenings in. Next you will come to the charming country-style kitchen/diner. This well-equipped space has an electric range-style oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. When the day is done, take the winding stairs from the entrance hall to the first floor where you can choose from the four lovely bedrooms: a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be arranged as a twin on request), two king-size bedrooms (one with a TV,) and a single bedroom. Completing this floor is the stylish bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC, and a separate shower room.

Heading outside brings you into the pretty garden which sits mostly to the front and is staged across multiple levels. Immediately outside of the kitchen area, you will find a wonderful decked area with stunning views and the chance of spotting some of the resident wildlife, including woodpeckers. Here you can sit at the table and unwind with a drink or take a dip in the hot tub. Younger members of the family will enjoy racing around the generous lawns before taking a bounce on the trampoline. Off-road parking for two cars is available to the front of the property.

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

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.
