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 delightful converted stable sits in a peaceful location surrounded by trees and stone walls. Meticulously finished with close attention to detail, the reverse-level layout includes an open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner with vaulted ceiling above and two charming bedrooms opening onto the courtyard below. The pretty village of Chideock is home to a choice of pubs, post office and a farm shop for stocking up on supplies.

Upstairs, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a fantastic space for entertaining, with a high vaulted beam-lined ceiling, pine floorboards and plenty of natural light. Prepare delicious meals in the traditional kitchen area, dine at the farmhouse table and unwind to the sound of your favourite music in the cosy sofa area with iPod dock. Downstairs, the en-suite double bedroom opens through French doors to a large terrace, perfect for enjoying that first cup of coffee in bed with the sunlight streaming through. There is off-road parking for one car.

This property is ideally located for making the most of the local amenities of Chideock, from its farm shop to its tea room. From here, follow the narrow lane down to the beach at Seatown (1 mile), popular among fossil collectors, fishermen and families alike and home to a pub. The market town of Bridport (3 miles) with its string of independent boutiques and cafes is well worth a visit, while the Broadchurch-famous West Bay (4 miles) is a wonderful seaside resort with plenty of activities on offer.

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!

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.
