This contemporary property offers both style and comfort. With your own private hot tub, a wood burner to relax beside and easy access to many great attractions, it’s the ideal base for your holiday

Sleeping four guests, this five-star luxury property is set in quiet countryside on a working farm near Broadwey village in Dorset, within a mile of a shop and pub, and just 3 miles from the Jurassic Coast. It’s ideal for families, friends, or couples who love country life and wildlife wanders in beautiful surroundings, yet with the convenience of heritage attractions and family-friendly amenities nearby.

Kick off boots and hang coats in the hall before wandering through to the inviting open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area. After a busy day of shopping or sailing along the coastline, refresh in the ground floor shower room, and relax in the living area by the warming wood burner. Cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen with local market ingredients. And enjoy sweet slumber in the stylish bedrooms upstairs. On sunny afternoons, enjoy the private enclosed garden and BBQ dining alfresco. Or take a dip in the bubbly hot tub after a long hike through the Dorset countryside.

Inland, you also have the choice of country lanes and well-worn cycle tracks through beautiful Dorset hamlets and villages.

Location

Map
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.
