A spacious family home ideal for groups, this cottage rewards guests with fantastic views and the chance to unplug and unwind surrounded by Dorset goodness.

Found in the village of Worth Matravers, you can enjoy easy access to country routes and coastal walks. Perched on the cliffs, take in views of endless seas and tread footsteps high above the water. Only 1 mile away, Keats Quarry dinosaur trackway is an absolute must for all generations. Exhibiting amazing dinosaur footprints preserved in limestone, the footprints are 140 million years old and give an insight into how the area got its name – the Jurassic Coast. For town activities and a trip to the beach, drive the 4 miles to Swanage and make the most of the plethora of things to see and do.

A sunlit cottage emphasising light and tranquillity, there is an immediate sense of ease. To start your holiday, head down the property’s outside steps and open the door. For tired travellers, the lounge will be an irresistible proposition. Kitted out with a plush sofa and two armchairs, the room’s ambience is enhanced with the addition of a wood burner. Open the patio doors in summer to let sunshine flood in or curl up in winter as the wood burner casts a rosy glow. For extra entertainment, a TV is provided so you can catch up on your favourite show or watch a film. A lovely space to gather throughout the day, the kitchen/diner overlooks the garden and offers the perfect balance of space and cosiness. Equipped with an oven, electric hob, dishwasher and more, you can prepare delicious repasts to tuck into around the family-sized dining table. Also downstairs is a utility room with separate WC, washing machine and tumble drier. Up the steep staircase, the cottage’s three bedrooms can be found. All decorated with neutral, relaxing tones, the bedrooms include a double, a 5ft double and a bunk with two singles. An ideal room for children, the bunk room has reduced head height at one end. Also featuring reduced head height in the eaves, upstairs has an attractive family bathroom. Here, a bath, shower, WC and heated towel rail add a sense of luxury to your routine.

For lazy, summer afternoons there is no better place than the garden. A south-facing space with lots of lawn and a seating area, the unenclosed garden enjoys glimpses of the sea and is surrounded by pretty vegetation. For parking, the property has a raised gravel parking space at the front with steps leading down to the front door.

  • 3 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 5ft double, 1 bunk (with singles)

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.
