A beautifully finished detached conversion situated in a stunning rural setting with fabulous far-reaching countryside views. The perfect choice for a quiet, romantic break.

Surrounded by the Dorset and Cranborne Chase Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, call this welcoming abode home and head out to explore with ease. Verdant views, open-plan living and lovely outdoor spaces invite those looking for a romantic retreat. Bring your four-legged third wheel along to join in the fun and have a ball together.

Head up to the first floor where the inviting accommodation awaits and get settled in right away. Step into the lounge where you can spend time unwinding after long journeys or time in the great outdoors. A large sofa offers plenty of space for you to curl up and get cosy and to relax with a book or in front of the TV and the room is decorated in light tones to create a calm atmosphere. When it’s time for dinner and tasty treats, the kitchen has all you need to rustle together ingredients and has a table so you can enjoy formal dinners and date nights with a glass or two of bubbly. If the sun graces you with its presence, fire up the BBQ and enjoy an al fresco feast as you admire the far-reaching views and lap up some more fresh air. After exploring the day away you deserve a good night’s sleep. Stepping down from the lounge brings you to the bedrooms where you can melt into the covers and drift off for a peaceful sleep before waking up and freshening up in the shower room with WC. There is ample off-road parking.

Hit the town and visit Poole or Bournemouth for a day of retail therapy and good food. Both towns lie within a 15.5-mile radius of your door so you can treat yourselves to a night off from the kitchen without travelling far. From Poole, enjoy time at Sandbanks beach where golden sands await and your dog is allowed all year round at designated sections. 5 miles from home, the quaint village of Blandford Forum is a great place to stock up on local produce and to browse the quirky streets.

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.
