A beautiful and well-appointed property snuggled away in the peaceful Sydling St Nicholas valley. It is about a mile to the village pub and several miles to the nearest shop. Peaceful and gorgeous, with the quiet broken most frequently by sheep and birds.

Lamperts Dairy is a wonderful property for my family as we like the fact that every bedroom has an en-suite and there are ground floor bedrooms to enable care of our 95 year old disabled Mum. It is clean, spacious and really well equipped. The owners are close by and very helpful. Going back again next year

So this property is truly awesome. We stayed as a whole family, with ages ranging from 19 to 85 years and we all, without exception, had a wonderful time. I think it is the space which helps everyone socialise when they want to, but find the peace and quiet when they wish, too! My parents find stairs difficult, so the twin downstairs room with showRead moreer was perfect for them and we loved the luxury of the upstairs king size double. We really couldnt fault anything!

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.
