Overlooking the sea and boasting a nautical theme to match, this quirky couple’s retreat is ideal for your Dorset escape.

Your apartment is set on the first floor of an attractive property and accessed via the shared entrance. Once inside, your privacy will be guaranteed so you can curl up with a glass of wine or admire the views across to the Isle of Wight from the lounge/diner window. Transform local ingredients into hearty meals in the kitchen, where you’ll find everything you need for cooking up a romantic meal for two. There’s a comfortable bedroom and a generous shower room, plus you’ll have use of a garage for off-road parking or storage.

Walking, cycling and sea-based adventures are easy to find in this popular destination, and you’ll never be far from a tempting restaurant for satisfying your appetite for fresh seafood. Lymington is 7.5 miles away with its friendly harbour and selection of shops, galleries and eateries. Highcliffe Castle 3 miles away is a must for any enthusiastic historian, as is Hurst Castle 4 miles away. Bournemouth (7.5 miles) is a vibrant hub for some well-deserved retail therapy.

Leeward was comfortable and homely with everything we needed. The location was very good with a cafe, shop and restaurant on the doorstep yet the area is not overly busy. The nights were quiet. In these times of social distancing we were perfectly placed for long walks with spectacular views but few people. We can't wait to visit again.

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.
