This Dorset village is the perfect base for days spent enjoying long walks or riding through the spectacular countryside that surrounds it. The nearby village centre is complete with a pub, galleries and tea rooms, ideal for whiling away an afternoon. The nearest town, Bridport, is easily accessible and has a varied selection of shops selling both essential supplies and vintage treasures. Heading towards the coast ,you will find West Bay where you can admire the boats on the harbour and take a walk on the beach. The dramatic scenery of the Jurassic Coast offers something for everyone and, with good road links nearby, you will be ideally placed for exploring this popular area. A private driveway leads to this detached cottage from a country lane.

The main entrance can be found to the front of the property, accessed via a gravel path that takes you through the garden. Once inside, you are met with a spacious entrance hall giving access to the utility room, complete with washing machine and tumble dryer. To the left of the hallway is the lounge. Full of character features, this welcoming room has a TV and an inglenook fireplace with wood burner for those chilly evenings in. Heading across the hall brings you 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 stairs from the entrance hall to the first floor where you can choose from the three lovely bedrooms, two of which are super-king-size and have an en-suite shower and WC. The third bedroom is a super-king-size zip-and-link (and can be arranged as a twin on request). A bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC completes the accommodation.

Heading outside via the main entrance door brings you into the pretty garden, which is mostly laid to lawn with flower beds to be admired. Immediately to the front of the cottage, you will find a wonderful patio area that really makes the most of this secluded setting. Here you can sit at the table and unwind with a drink or head around the side of the cottage to take a dip in the hot tub. A games barn with table tennis and table football is the ideal place to stage a tournament with the family. Off-road parking for four cars is available to the front of the property.

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.
