From the exposed beams and rafters to the exposed brickwork features, slate flooring, and stunning oak staircase, this converted stable is a touch of class from beginning to end.

This beautifully converted stable is located at the end of an unenclosed gravelled drive and is surrounded by stone walls, trees and shrubs. It sits beyond the owner’s house and outbuildings of the former farm. The property is conveniently located on the lane to the neighbouring village of Seatown and is within walking distance (300 yards) of a pub and local shops. A 7-mile drive down the coast will take you to Lyme Regis, a popular tourist destination where you can visit the Marine Aquarium, Dinosaurland Fossil Museum or even try your hand at a spot of deep-sea fishing (season and weather permitting). There are a number of local walks, some of which are on the fossil trails and you can even visit Monmouth Beach (7 miles) to view some impressive fossils on the beach.

On entering the property through a wooden stable door, there are bedrooms on either side of the hall. Both are spacious and light double bedrooms containing a 5ft wooden sleigh bed and a selection of attractive wooden bedroom furniture, wooden beams to the ceilings and exposed brickwork features. Each bedroom has a set of French doors leading to the outside terrace, and each has its own en-suite bathroom with stunning slate flooring, and both have a bath with shower over, basin and WC. Going further down the hall and up the beautiful oak staircase you enter an open-plan space comprising the kitchen, dining area and lounge. The room is light and airy with exposed wooden rafters, brickwork features, sloping ceilings and skylights. There is a comfortable sofa, desk area, dining table and a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher.

To the exterior of the property, there is a terrace with a seating area to soak in all the nature surrounding you. There is parking available for one car.

This is an excellent cottage for two couples on holiday together, as it has two ensuite rooms with kingsize beds. It's very comfortable and well equipped and the owners are friendly, welcoming and helpful. From the property's village location, you can walk to the shore at Seatown, where there's one of three local pubs serving good food. We have staRead moreyed here eight times and that says it all!

Even better than described. A gorgeous walled and quiet location yet close to a main road. The layout, decor and furnishings were superb and the bed was so comfortable. Everything we needed was there.

Midlands Cottage was well located in a Village and yet only 1 mile away from the sea. Walkable to 3 pubs. Cottage was really comfortable and well equipped. The owners were very welcoming.

We loved our week here! The cottage is fabulous, the open plan upstairs living space is perfect so nobody is on their own in the kitchen if you decide to cook whilst there! It has beautiful views too. The bedrooms both have their own bathroom which is great and the double doors out to the garden area are lovely. We loved our week here! Thank you soRead more much Carroll and Simon. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
