This charming cottage is set in a peaceful rural position and has all you need for a relaxing break with family or friends, including a hot tub, generous garden, beautiful views and games room.

Surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and less than 5 miles from the spectacular Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, this home is perfect for adventurers. Sleeping six across three bedrooms, this bolthole is 3 miles from the heart of Bridport, so you can enjoy your peaceful location whilst knowing you are close to local amenities. Welcoming two of your dogs, the outside space is great for games of fetch and a bubble in the hot tub.

Walk the gravel path which leads you through the large garden and make your way inside. Perfect for when you get caught in the rain, leave outer layers and leads in the utility room which is handily located off the entrance hall. Post-explore, head into the open-plan kitchen/diner to pop the kettle on. Brimming with country style and charm, enjoy warming up with a brew and cooking up a storm in this space, where you can also dine together with friends and family and raise a toast to time spent together. For a film night or to warm up by the wood burner, head into the lounge which welcomes you to relax in front of the TV, or make your way to the games barn for a competitive night of table tennis. Emerge victoriously and celebrate with a soak and a drink in the hot tub, the perfect al fresco end to your day. After a good night’s sleep in one of three lovely bedrooms, two of which boast en-suites, wander the garden and its blossoming flowerbeds with a coffee. There is off-road parking for four cars.

Pack your bags, grab the dog a bone, and head out to explore. The iconic beaches at West Bay are a fantastic place to set up camp for the day, amongst the sand and sea, and you can tuck into a tasty portion of fish and chips for lunch. Dogs must be kept on the leads in the port area when visiting throughout summer months. For an inland adventure, the National Trust’s Pilsdon Pen is 4.5 miles from your door and is steeped in history with panoramic views.

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.
