This beautifully converted Grade II listed granary offers cosy accommodation for a family or a couple and is situated in a picturesque village just outside the thriving Dorset town of Bridport.

This property is a delightful Grade II listed granary that has been converted using environmentally-friendly materials in the quiet village of Walditch. The granary has plenty of character with a mixture of contemporary and traditional furnishings, and even features ancient external steps to the former hayloft at one end of the barn. Close to the pub and shops in Bridport (1 mile), this cottage is in an enviable location for those looking for a relaxing holiday.

Enter the property through the stable door and discover a bright and airy open-plan living space, with everything you need to cook up a storm in the contemporary-styled kitchen area. Sink into the comfy sofas in front of the wood burner among the exposed stone walls and wood beams for a peaceful evening after a long day. Walk through the living area into a spacious twin bedroom with original features and a shower room with WC just next door. Up the winding stairs, you’ll find a beautiful double bedroom that adds a boutique feel to your stay; wake up in soft, pretty decor and head to the large en-suite for a soothing bath or have a quick shower if you’re in a hurry to get out and explore the local area. Outside, there’s a courtyard that’s partially screened, making it ideal for an al fresco evening drink as the sun goes down.

Head down to West Bay (3 miles) for glorious sands and fossil hunting or go for a walk along the majestic sandstone cliffs. You could walk down to the end of the Jurassic Pier for views of the coast from South Devon to Portland. For a countryside walk, visit Colmer’s Hill (4 miles), where you’ll see plenty of wildlife along the footpath and ocean views from the top.

Comfortable and cozy cottage in farm style setting in lovely rural location. We enjoyed the walk through the village, and down the lane towards Bridport. Only a mile from Bridport and about 3 miles to sea and coast path. It was nice to be able to sit outside when the weather was good. Mark was very informative about local amenities and walks, whichRead more we could have done more of if we had had more time. Would recommend as a good base and comfortable place to say for a couple or a family. Hide

We had a lovely time in Dorset and the cottage has a lovely location, set back from the main busy road of Bridport. Also in a perfect location with only short drives to all the walks we did around the Jurassic Coast for fossil hunting. The owners were very lovely and we had good chats about the nearby Real Tennis hall (never heard of it before) andRead more other local things to do like the market on Saturdays in Bridport. We also enjoyed some of Marks home made apple juice which the kids really loved. Hide

A charming cottage in a great location. However it was not very clean. Crockery and cutlery had food residue on them, cutlery drawer was full of crumbs. Dirty marks/ketchup around the kitchen cupboard door handles and on the front of the microwave. One of the single beds had black bits and half a dozen long black hairs on the duvet and a red plastiRead morec bag in the bed. It had not been slept in but had not been refreshed for a while. No evidence of a Covid deep clean between bookings. Unacceptable! Hide

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.
