A fantastic stone barn ideal for families or groups of friends, this property enjoys stunning countryside views and access to many beautiful walks in the Dorset countryside.

This property is a charming three-bedroom barn conversion that is attached to another and both can be booked together. Situated on the edge of the village of Askerswell, this property is under half a mile from the local pub and 3.5 miles from a shop. Set in superb grounds with fishing ponds for guests to use, this barn is in an ideal spot for those looking for a relaxing holiday.

Enter the property through the porch and head straight through to the kitchen, decorated in a quaint country style. Cook up a storm and head through to the living area to eat at the dining table among exposed wood beams and soft, neutral decor. Curl up on the comfy sofas with a good book or in front of the TV. Head out the other side of the living room and there’s a shower room with pretty tiles just next to the door to the porch. Upstairs, three bedrooms are perfect places to retreat after a long day; unwind in the double bedroom with a dressing area or enjoy some peace in the twin rooms, one of which has an attractive loveseat. At the end of the landing, a bathroom with a shower attachment over the bath offers nautical touches that remind you that you’re just 5 miles from the coast. Sizzle up a BBQ in the courtyard or explore the stunning grounds and fishing ponds.

The cottage is just 6 miles from stunning West Bay, where a beautiful beach, cliffs and cafes make for a great day out. Head home via Bridport (4.5 miles) for a bite to eat in one of the pubs or take a wander around the museum. Stroll around the beautiful Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens (7 miles) and watch the kids play in the play area.

This is an extremely pleasant country retreat but not far from many amenities to suit all tastes. Our relative visiting from Hong Kong loved it in view of the contrast! The owners are next-door and were very accommodating with a couple of matters we needed to sort out. The kitchen was very good for preparing meals at home and the living space downsRead moretairs was excellent. We were also able to walk to the local pub on a couple of nights for a meal. We had a happy stay. Hide

Perfectly quiet tucked away location in beautiful Dorset countryside. Yet ideal for trips to the Jurassic coast or to Bridport/Dorchester - all of which are nearby. Very cosy and comfortable cottage on a working farm.

Lovely location. Really light spacious living area. Very well equipped. All in all pleased we booked Haydon barn.

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.
