Property code: 82604

This beautiful cottage nestles in a secluded setting in the 5-acre grounds of the owner’s home, and has been lovingly fitted and furnished to provide a romantic retreat for two.

Sitting on the border of Devon, Dorset and Somerset, this character cottage is the ideal romantic retreat for two. Overlooking the rolling hills of East Devon, this single-level property sits on the 5-acre grounds of the owner’s home, and boasts some fabulous original features like vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. Spend your days windsurfing or kayaking along the coast, and your nights sipping wine on the property’s pretty patio.

Come home to this gorgeous cottage and you’ll find a handy boot rack and brush area just outside the stable split door – the perfect place to clean off those sand-covered accessories after a day exploring the Jurassic Coast. Step inside and you’ll find an impressive main room where you can cook, dine and relax. Cook up a romantic meal for two and eat in the intimate dining area, or head outside and dine alfresco on the patio. After dinner, pour yourself a glass of something cool and crisp and enjoy the evening air, or head inside to cuddle up in front of the TV. At the end of the day there’s a beautiful dual-aspect bedroom in which to retire. In the morning, draw back the curtains and admire the country views from the comfort of your bed.

Head into Axminster (4 miles) and take a stroll along the Art Trail. Afterwards, pick up some local goodies in the farmers’ market or treat yourself to a late lunch in Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Restaurant. Alternatively, make a beeline for Lyme Regis (9.5 miles), where you can spend the day fossil-hunting, sailing or windsurfing. Or head to Golden Cap (13 miles) and share a romantic moment at the highest point of England’s south coast. The views of Portland, Beer and Sidmouth are wonderful.

The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. The area outside was well kept with amazing views. The owner and family were very helpful and even provided laminated local walks from the door when they realised we were keen walkers. Would love to go back.

A lovely clean well presented cottage with everything we needed. The owners even left the lights on so we could find our way in as we were delayed and arrived late at night. Beautiful position, so quiet and peaceful. The perfect place to relax and completely switch off.

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.
