Property code: 63136

Take time out to relax in this converted former stable, set in a beautiful rural village with a network of popular walking routes nearby and easy access to the stunning Jurassic Coastline.

This romantic retreat lies within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sleeping four guests, it’s ideal for couples or friends who love the countryside. Two dogs are also welcome, so you’ll be glad to find country lanes right on your doorstep. The friendly owners, who live next door, have added every creature comfort for a homely ambience. You’re within half a mile of a popular historic pub with food, and 2 miles from the charming town of Beaminster where you’ll find a bakery, butcher’s, and greengrocer’s, along with an array of independent shops.

Enter into the welcoming hallway of this country-style property and take two steps towards the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. After a day’s hike, freshen up in the downstairs shower room, and step into the living room to relax by the warming wood burner; or enjoy a good book in the TV snug upstairs. The kitchen is well-equipped for family mealtimes, while there’s a private enclosed BBQ seating area outside, and a summertime garden room in the shared owners’ lawned garden. If you can tear yourself away from this floral idyll, gather together for family mealtimes. When night falls, you’ll find a ground-floor double bed area, and a king-size bedroom upstairs.

To the west, there are two further Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to explore, East Devon (13 miles), and the Blackdown Hills on the Devon and Somerset borders (14 miles). Discover the site of an Iron Age hill fort at Pilsdon Pen (3.5 miles), and wildlife trails in Ham Hill Country Park (15 miles). Visit Bridport’s market town and literary festival (6.5 miles).

A really nice quiet location with a lovely garden and accommodation which was spotlessly clean. Helpful owners who left all required information on equipment and safety of the cottage and customers. Dog friendly and gated on the driveway to prevent dogs running onto the road.

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.
