Spacious cottage with wonderful views over the West Dorset countyside. A private garden and good road links make this the ideal place for a relaxed break exploring this verdant landscape.

On a working farm in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside is this pretty, Victorian cottage to sleep four. With spacious and homely accommodation inside and an enclosed lawn outside overlooking acres of fields, this is a peaceful bolthole for year-round getaways. Beyond the farm, the historic town of Dorchester (9.5 miles) offers a good selection of amenities, while the magnificent Jurassic Coast is just 5 miles away.

Inside, this period cottage has been beautifully updated to offer spacious and bright accommodation fit for modern family life. Cook up a storm in the charming country-style kitchen, before dining overlooking the hills. A sunroom with vaulted ceiling, exposed trusses and spectacular rural views is a lovely spot for enjoying a cup of coffee in the mornings, while the cosy lounge is ideal for quiet nights in. Upstairs, two light and airy bedrooms overlook surrounding pastureland. On summer evenings, there’s no better place to enjoy a tasty BBQ than in the enclosed garden.

Escape the hustle and bustle for a few days with this rural retreat for walkers and nature lovers alike. Having explored the wonderful footpaths and trails of West Dorset, spend a morning in Dorchester, home to a great selection of shops, pubs and attractions. Or nip to the coast to hunt for fossils on Lyme Regis Beach (17 miles), admire the harbour at West Bay (8 miles) or stroll along the scenic South West Coast Path. Closer to home, the picturesque village of Litton Cheney (0.5 miles) boasts a friendly family-run pub - the perfect way to end a busy and exciting day.
