Set in a tranquil Dorset village, this delightful and spacious barn conversion offers cosy and inviting accommodation for a family seeking to enjoy the countryside and coastline of the Lulworth area.

This property is a charming three-bedroom barn conversion, situated behind the church at the end of a private lane in Winfrith Newburgh. This cosy and characterful cottage is tastefully decorated and is just 125 metres from a public footpath. Its proximity to the pub in the next village (1.5 miles), shop (0.5 miles) and the coast (3 miles) makes it an enviable location for families or friends to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Enter the cottage into a large hall with space for coats and boots and a handy WC. Off the hall is a bright and airy kitchen that has plenty of worktop space and a table that’s perfect for a quick breakfast. The living area has patio doors leading outside and features exposed brick and wood beams, which complement the furnishings; sink into the sofa in front of the fire on a chilly autumnal evening. At the top of the landing, the bathroom has a separate shower and a small bath for a long soak. Off the landing are three bedrooms; all have wooden beams, so watch your head! A peaceful twin room looks out across the garden, as does a welcoming double room that has French doors with Juliet balcony. Another small twin bedroom is neutrally decorated for a good night’s sleep, so you can all wake up refreshed. Outside, there’s parking for one car in front of the garage, and the rear garden has a BBQ for you to sizzle up an al fresco meal in the summer.

You’re just 3 miles from famous Durdle Door, and Lulworth Cove is just 2 miles further; spend the day here hunting for fossils and taking in the fantastic views. Visit Lulworth Castle (6 miles) for a stroll around the gardens or climb the tower for spectacular panoramic views of the Purbeck countryside and Jurassic Coast.

A fabulous cottage in a great location, a short drive to Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. Cottage is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. Garden had a wide range of birds visiting, including a Tawny Owl. Lovely to hear the church bells. Cottage was very clean and comfortable.

Reviewed by Mrs C Dodgson 30th August 2018

The cottage was great. Well fitted out - kitchen/bathroom/furnishings all modern and good condition. It felt like someone had really thought about what we might need during their stay - a stack of DVDs, board games, books, kitchen equipment etc. The garden was a good size and enclosed which was great for our dog.

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.
