Immaculately decorated, this contemporary stone house has a luxury finish and room for all the family in a village location – yet is only 4 miles from the coast.

This newly-built property, peacefully located in a hamlet close to the resort of Swanage, has ample space for seven guests across its four bedrooms. Boasting beautiful views across the valley, you can catch glimpses of the steam trains puffing across the valley floor. With the station just a few hundred metres away, you can even hop on a train for an adventure. The coast just 2.5 miles away, making this the ideal property for extended families or larger groups to discover all that the Dorset countryside and coast has to offer. The local pub is just 2 miles away for when you don’t fancy cooking.

Inside, the property is stylish, spacious and elegantly finished – with a large kitchen and dining area featuring granite worktops, a breakfast bar and a double oven with patio doors leading onto the terrace outside. A separate living room features a wood burner and Smart TV for cosy nights in. Upstairs you’ll find two king-size bedrooms both complete with en-suite shower rooms as well as a further twin and single, and an additional family bathroom. To the front of the property is a large paved area to park and to the rear, a great patio terrace with a lawn to enjoy beautiful countryside views. There is a charcoal BBQ available for guests to use.

Head the 3.5 miles to Swanage and hop aboard a steam train and journey back in time to the National Trust’s historic Corfe Castle – which is in fact just over 2 miles from the property itself if you fancy getting there under your own steam! Swanage is also home to a Victorian pier with a maritime museum, a variety of cafes and the opportunity to take a boat trip should you wish to. Just under 5 miles away is Durlston Country Park – a spectacular clifftop nature reserve or, for those looking for a bit more adrenaline, why not try your hand at coasteering?

Brilliant cottage, all mod cons. Brilliant location for getting to the oh so many attractions. Went to a film night in the local village hall and all the natives were very friendly.

Fieldfare was such a great holiday home - beautifully decorated, well equipped and in the perfect location. It was also so kid friendly - and the proximity to the playground and steam engine train station was a huge hit! We couldnt have found a better house for our holiday.

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.
