This traditional cottage is ideally placed within the village centre and has all you need for a romantic break, including a wood burner, pretty private garden and easy access to a choice of amenities

Less than 2 miles from the fantastic, Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, this quaint, thatched cottage is an idyllic destination for a romantic retreat. Close to the bustling hub of Bridport (2 miles), spend days wandering the quirky streets before enjoying a beach day with your four-legged third wheels, and returning home to settle down in style. Brimming with country charm and character, the warming wood burner is the perfect welcome home you deserve after days spent exploring your fantastic surroundings.

Tucked away at the end of a pretty terrace of cottages, step through the picket gate and through the door at the rear of the house. Head straight for the galley-style kitchen and pop the kettle on for a welcoming brew. Though snug, this space has all you need to rustle up romantic feasts and is bright and airy, a lovely space in which to spend time cooking up a storm. When it’s time to dine, plate up in the lounge/diner, or dine under the last of the sun in the courtyard (set over different levels). Enjoy a sundowner tipple before snuggling up with a good film in front of the roaring wood burner, the ultimate cosy way to end your day before you head upstairs to bed. Climb winding stairs and get tucked up in the spacious, king-size bedroom. Before bed, unwind with a book on the sofa before soaking in the en-suite bathroom and drifting off to sleep. There is roadside parking to the front of the property.

Head into the vibrant, market town of Bridport, with its thriving arts and food scene, and wander the pretty streets or treat yourselves to a date night away from the kitchen. If heading out for a beach day, pick up fresh produce for your picnic and make the 2-mile trip south to Eype, a dog-friendly beach where you can find a quiet spot to settle down. Tucked beneath the towering peak of the Golden Cap, enjoy walks around the National Trust-owned estate and admire fantastic, far-reaching views to reward your hike.

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

Cottage is lovely, Symondsbury is a lovely village which is quiet and has a lovely pub just a short walk away (check website as it wasn't open every day) and you may need to book as one night we couldn't get in. lots of places to walk. Garden is part terraced and small but a good place to chill.

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.
