Property code: EYPEH

This beautifully renovated 300-year-old character cottage has been lovingly updated to offer modern amenities and a real home-from-home feel.

Enjoy fresh Dorset sea air from this charming cottage tucked away in the quiet, coastal village of Eype. Stroll down to the beach from this inviting home from home, which sleeps up to four guests. Relax on the secluded sands of Eype Beach, enjoy the glorious views out along the Jurassic Coast and watch the sun set over Lyme Bay. Return home to light the open fire or to recline in the hammock out in the enclosed garden.

Enjoy the warm embrace of this 300-year-old cottage from the moment you enter. Settle down on the comfortable seating in the lounge and bask in the heat of the crackling fire while you watch the Smart TV/DVD, which comes with Amazon Firestick, or listen to music on the Amazon Echo. Cook dinner in the kitchen/diner then eat together at the table. Make fresh coffee to enjoy in the lounge or out in the pretty garden. There is a utility room, with washer/dryer, out in the shed. Head upstairs to the first floor to find both your delightful bedrooms and the family shower room. Spill out into the beautiful garden as often as possible; BBQ your supper out here on balmy evenings or enjoy a chilled glass of wine and take in the views.

For a change of scene, drive almost 3 miles to West Bay: picnic, play on the sand, splash in the shallows and hunt for fossils. Book a boat trip from here to take you along the Jurassic Coast. Dog owners, who are welcome to bring two canine companions to this cottage, will enjoy the 5-mile walk from here along the South West Coast Path to Burton Bradstock. For shops and restaurants, the market town of Bridport, 2.5 miles from your base, is the perfect place to head.

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.
