Property code: MAIDE

A delightful terraced cottage in the heart of the village of Maiden Newton and in an ideal spot for exploring the local area or discovering the many walks from the doorstep.

Fantastically located for a getaway with family and friends, this home from home makes you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. The cosy wood burner is a real treat after long days adventuring and helps keep the chill at bay. The lovely outside area is perfect for al fresco dinners and for basking in the sun whilst sipping a refreshing, cold drink. Sleeping four across two bedrooms, this home welcomes your four-legged friend, making it a great base from which to explore the magical coast and countryside of Dorset.

Make your way through the gate and into your cottage home. Light, bright and cosy, the lounge is warmed by a roaring wood burner which is a lovely welcome home after time in the great outdoors. Take a seat on one of two sofas and put your feet up with a good book or switch on the TV/DVD for a family film night. Long, exciting days call for banquet dinners with your favourite dinners. The kitchen has all you need to conjure up a feast and is a charming space in which to spend time. Plate up at the dining table in the kitchen and serve up a storm to enjoy together. Finish your evening with a couple of sundowners in the beautiful garden which is full of blooms. To reach the best spot, walk over the shared pathway, up some steps and reach the seating area which is great for relaxing in at all times of the day. Upstairs, the two bedrooms are lovely and tranquil, providing you with gorgeous spaces to rest your head and switch off. There is roadside parking available.

Sitting in the delightful village of Maiden Newton, head out to explore straight from your door. Wander the quaint streets and local footpaths before rewarding your efforts in one of the nearby pubs. Hop in the car and head to the Jurassic Coast for a day at the beach. A 16.5-mile trip to Weymouth means you can have a dog-friendly swim and a splash, or travel to Lulworth Cove (16.5 miles) to see the iconic, horseshoe-shaped bay.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Parking can be difficult. You may not like the doggy aroma in the cottage If you are not a dog owner ! Cottage could do with a little bit of tlc and a spring clean. On the plus side the beds were very comfortable and the location is perfect for exploring the amazing Dorset coast.

Had a lovely week away in Maiden Cottage. Very cosy in the evenings with the log burner. Spacious back garden, lovely on sunny days. Very handy with the Spar shop over the road, convenient for anything you may need.

We only stayed for 3 nights in mid June and hit the weather spot on and made great use for the garden seating area. The upstairs is very comfortable and well kept. The lounge and kitchen are a little dated but fully functional, however the lounge had a faint spell of dog (this was most likely due to the heat) and a little off putting at times. GreaRead moret parking right outside the property but the road is particularly narrow in places. 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.
