This stylish bell tent blends rustic charm with plenty of comforts to provide a great base for a couple wanting to get back to nature and explore the countryside surrounds.

Offering the best of both worlds, this traditional Dorset village has fantastic amenities including a bike hire shop, galleries, artisan makers, a popular pub and tea rooms, as well as beautiful countryside surrounds. A climb up nearby Colmer’s Hill (0.5 miles) will reward you with stunning views or head to the coast and visit West Bay (3 miles) for a stroll along the harbourside and pebble beach. The market town of Bridport (1.5 miles) is easily accessible and has a good range of shops, selling everything from essential supplies to vintage curios. Also easily accessible are Eype, the pretty cobbled streets of Lyme Regis and Abbotsbury with its sub-tropical gardens and swannery, which are all within 10 miles.

Positioned within a tranquil paddock alongside three other bell tents, this romantic retreat is the ideal place to truly relax and unwind. Accessed on foot, you can enter the cosy living space and find a king-size bed along with bathrobes, as well as plenty of thoughtful touches to make this a rustic home from home. There is a kettle and a mini-fridge for any treats you bring with you and at the end of the bed, there is seating for two. Your own private shower with WC can be found in an on-site shared shepherd’s hut and there are washing up facilities here too.

Lay a blanket down or move your chairs out to the front of the tent, where part of the meadow has been cut back to provide a place to sit and enjoy stargazing or cook a light meal on the fire pit. Parking is available in a shared car park approx. 100m from the property. Drop off is possible along an access path alongside the tents.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
