A delightful property set in the heart of the countryside. Here you can be sure of a peaceful rural escape where couples can enjoy a romantic holiday together.

A beautiful home for a rural, romantic retreat, this quaint bolthole is a snug and welcoming abode. Filled with light, the open-plan living space is a lovely place to spend time with a loved one and offers a warm welcome when returning home from exploring. The magical Dorset coast and countryside are yours to adventure with a handful of National Trust properties close by, pretty villages to roam and the historic town of Sherborne with its castles and abbey an 11-mile journey from your door.

Enter via your private access and arrive at your home from home to begin unpacking your bags and stocking the cupboards with goodies. The lounge/diner are open-plan, and the wood burner effect electric fire promises to keep the chill at bay. A tranquil space to spend time in, pop your feet up and indulge in good book or switch on the TV/DVD for a romantic film night. When it’s time to whet your appetite, the kitchen is compact but has all you need to cater for meals at the dining table. Make use of the ice compartment in the fridge and chill your glasses of bubbly before heading outside to the secluded garden to raise a toast and sit beneath the stars. After a tipple or two, head to bed in the lovely double bedroom where you can snuggle up under the covers for a peaceful sleep. Start your day with a relaxing soak in the tub before heading out to explore. There is off-road parking for one car.

Pack up a picnic and don your swimmers for a day by the coast and travel 30 miles to the beautiful beach at Swanage. From Swanage, hop on the 9-mile Purbeck Ridge Walk which winds its way past Old Harry Rocks and up to the quaint village of Corfe Castle. Here, the National Trust owned remains are well-worth a trip and you can travel between Swanage and Corfe Castle via train if you don’t fancy the hike.

Excellent cottage - perfect for two people. Well stocked and furnished with everything you need. Quiet location but near to Sherbourne and Dorchester and for wonderful walks to enjoy the Dorset countryside. Would book again!

Loved our stay in this little peaceful cottage. Small but plenty of room for the two of us. Having a peaceful garden to sit in when we got back after a day out was just like home. Well situated for exploring Dorset. Would definitely come again.

A lovely compact but quaint holiday cottage ideal for 2 in a beautiful part of Dorset. It was very clean and well equipped although no wardrobe. However, there were ample coat hangers in the bedroom to hang dresses, shirts etc. Jackie was very welcoming and shared her local knowledge which helped us to visit other areas. The little garden was sunnyRead more and pretty and it was a pleasure to sit outside of an evening. The local pub is a 10min walk across the footpath. Would highly recommend. Hide

Little Greenacre was a very pleasant place to spend our week in Dorset. The cottage was comfortable (as was the bed - very important for us!) and clean and there was a very nice small suntrap garden. The owner was very friendly Due to the nature of the property there were some space constraints - the kitchen area was tiny (we resorted to M&S Ready Read moreMeals for most of the week rather than cooking from scratch) and there were no wardrobes but this did not detract from our stay. Nice area too Hide

No storage space in the bedroom so you have to live from your suitcase or use hangers on wall hooks. Having the case on the floor by the side of the bed is a trip hazard especially during the night. The bed settee in the lounge is too low to get up from if you have difficulty getting up from low seating. It is not possible to open windows in the loRead moreunge due to fixed secondary double glazing. Bijou, spotless, private, friendly host, country location, in a quiet past time warp of narrow lanes.
