A former stables located within tranquil grounds, this ideal property for couples has history and character aplenty with all of today's modern comforts thrown in.

This property is a delightful former stable with a light and airy interior on the edge of the village of Winfrith Newburgh. Situated within the owner’s grounds, you have complete privacy and can take in the pretty long avenue of Lime Trees from the seating area on the patio. You’re in an enviable location for a couples’ retreat with the coast 4 miles away and the local pub just 1 mile away.

Enter the cottage through French doors from the terrace into the spacious open-plan living area, where warm tones welcome you to sit back in front of the TV or look out across the grounds. Fix yourself a snack in the kitchen area where you’ll find everything you need and enjoy it sitting at the table that’s perfect for two. The bathroom has pretty neutral tiles in the shower and over the sink, giving it a rustic feel. Upstairs, the king-sized bedroom has plenty of light and stunning wooden beams that remind you of this property’s former use; mind your head on the eaves. Snuggle up with a film on the TV/DVD in the evening after a busy day. Outside, there are wildflowers and a lawn to each side of the driveway, and climbing plants, flowerbeds and herbs on the patio make it a peaceful spot to watch the sun go down on the wooden bench.

Coastal and countryside walks are all available from this cottage; walk the South West Coast Path from Durdle Door (3 miles) to Lulworth Cove (4 miles) or even further for breathtaking views and blue seas. Or take the ‘Scratchy Bottom’ route to see vast countryside views and a glimpse of Portland. For more hustle and bustle, Dorchester is only 10 miles away and boasts plenty of shops and restaurants.

A beautiful secluded place to stay if you want a peaceful holiday. As soon as you walk in, it feels like home. The little treats were a lovely thought. I particularly enjoyed the little thatched summer house round the corner, catching the afternoon rays with a book and cuppa!

A little gem in idyllic surroundings: tranquil and calm but not too far from shops and pubs, great walking country, local history, sites of interest, charming villages and historic towns, this place has it all and is just right for two people and a couple of dogs. We have every intention of going back!

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.
