Stunning hamstone cottage set within the tranquil village of Uploders, with three bedrooms, BBQ terrace and a wild meadow garden.

This beautifully-presented traditional ham stone cottage sits in a peaceful rural location with far-reaching views across rolling Dorset countryside. Just 3 miles from the coast at Burton Bradstock and the bustling market town of Bridport, it is perfect for family holidays. While warm summer evenings can be enjoyed in the stunning wild meadow garden, cosy nights in are best spent curled up on the stylish sofas in this property’s charming lounge.

Prepare and enjoy family meals in the double aspect kitchen/diner, which has been beautifully finished with tiled flooring, a butler sink, oak worktops and pantry for making yourselves at home. With a pretty window seat, large dining table and door opening onto the garden, this is a fantastic entertaining space for both day and night. At the end of a busy day, put your feet up in the lounge next door, where you will find an iPod dock and electric flame effect fire, before sinking into one of the five inviting beds in this property’s three elegantly styled bedrooms. Please note, these all have reduced height in the eaves. When the sun is shining, step out into the glorious sloping wild cottage garden and enjoy a tasty BBQ with the family. There is parking on the village lane.

The cottage was in an excellent location for using as a base to explore the area. It was well stocked with everything we needed, was warm and cosy to sit in an evening.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
