Set in a fantastic spot for exploring the picturesque Purbecks, this spacious cottage seamlessly combines character features with contemporary convenience and is the ideal base for a family holiday

Keen walkers and lovers of the great outdoors will adore this charming three-bedroom cottage, which sleeps up to six guests, 1 mile from Wareham in Dorset. Set on the edge of Wareham Forest, it is well-positioned for exploring the picturesque Isle of Purbeck, picking up a stretch of the South West Coast Path and discovering beauty spots, including Lulworth Cove. Spend the day at the beach or messing about on the river at Wareham, where you can hire boats. Return to the attractive home to light the wood burner or enjoy the south-facing garden. Take two happy hounds with you if you choose.

Set within a plot of half an acre and dating back to the 1800s, this former farmworker's cottage is accessed via an unmade track. Up a step, enter to find a hall leading to a utility room, with a shower and WC. Return from days out to unwind in the cosy lounge before a roaring wood burner and watch TV - on summer days, open the French doors to let in the fresh Dorset breeze. Wander through to the kitchen/diner, with its sophisticated country kitchen style, to cook and eat together. And as night falls, climb the stairs to your three bedrooms and family bathroom. Spill out into your generous garden to light the BBQ on warm evenings and play games with the children on the lawn - keep an eye on them as the garden is not enclosed and lookout for a variety of wildlife.

Make your way to the Saxon walled town of Wareham for meals out and to potter in independent shops. Visit the museum here to find out more about the area's fascinating history. Head to Lulworth Cove 12 miles away to marvel at the coastal beauty, visit the dramatic Fossil Forest, and walk 1 mile to the striking limestone arch of Durdle Door.

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.
