Spacious holiday home situated within private gated grounds, with use of large gardens, and enjoying a fantastic location in the Dorset countryside, just twenty miles from Bournemouth’s sandy beaches.

Whether you’re travelling with the extended family or looking to enjoy a break with friends in rural Dorset, this delectable property promises to tick all of your boxes. Located on private grounds, this cottage makes up one of four holiday homes on a gated estate with an abundance of gardens and outdoor space. Boasting three generous bedrooms, all of which have en-suite facilities, this property is perfectly suited to your next stay on the Dorset coast.

Venture up the stunning driveway and pull into your very own holiday home. Inside you’ll find rooms that have been decorated with a contemporary style throughout, creating an instant home-from-home environment. Evenings in will no doubt be enjoyed in the generous open-plan living space, with a dining table for evening meals and an effortlessly comfortable lounge equipped with SkyTV. This room is made bright and cheerful thanks to large French doors which conveniently lead out to your private garden and patio. Outside you’ll find plenty of games for children, BBQ and an outdoor dining set – ideal for stays throughout the summer.

Just as beautiful as its rural beauty spots is the county’s remarkable coastline, with the famous Jurassic Coast just a 16-mile drive away. Mosey along the coastline to take in glorious seascapes and stunning cliff views.

Good location and nice house to make our base for the half term. Car is essential to get to the local amenities and attractions. The park was completed early in the week and the kids made good use of it. One thing to note is the place is not as child friendly for younger children (Mine 3&5). The furniture in the lounge is different to the pictures Read moreand now all glass tables and metal dining chairs. Not great for younger children.. Hide

A very comfortable cottage which would suit all but the very elderly or infirm. It would work very well for families with young children or teenagers. A good outdoor space with equipment to use(badminton/cricket) X box for wet days. Lots of interesting places to go in the surrounding area. Anyone who didn't have a good holiday here would be very haRead morerd to please. Hide

On arrival there were plenty of tea bags, coffee sachets and dishwasher tablets and the linen and towels were very clean: but there were a lot of cobwebs around. The 'low key' building work however made it impossible to plan to use the garden which was frustrating as this was one of the attractions for the family with a 9 month old. It also coveredRead more our cars in a pretty thick layer of gravel dust. Once the work is completed on the rest of the properties this will be a very nice place to stay Hide

We had a lovely family week at this cottage. A great location for exploring Dorest and very close to a supermarket. The garden was lovely and so were the grounds. The owner was very helpful. Really clean!

Great location for out and about, nice friendly people, has really good wifi with sky tv and even an Xbox. At the time we were there they were doing a lot of improvements and we knew about it but it never spoilt our holiday.

The enclosed garden was perfect for kids to play in and had lovely views of the countryside. Spectacular driveway to the property although spoilt most days by at least 12 builders vehicles. Our planned peaceful holiday was disturbed by the building work going on next door which we felt we should of been notified about.

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.
