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 slight reduced height in the eaves. When the sun is shining, step out to the enclosed patio and enjoy a tasty BBQ with the family or take the path up to the glorious sloping wild cottage garden. There is parking on the village lane.

Set in a peaceful pocket of Dorset countryside surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this idyllic property is a great choice for keen walkers and guests wishing to get away from it all. Just 3 miles away is the quaint market town of Bridport, home to a good choice of shops, cafes and pubs, while the iconic cliffs of West Bay lie just 5 miles away. From here, the stunning Chesil Beach stretches all the way to the Isle of Portland (18 miles) in the east, perfect for long walks, watersports and swimming.

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.

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.
