Relax in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside in this traditional cottage for two, which enjoys the best of both worlds with the popular attractions of the Jurassic Coast also within easy reach.

A quintessentially English country cottage with country views, nature-lovers and tranquillity-searchers will love it here. Located just outside of the village of West Milton, this former stone mill (cited in the Doomsday Book) is down a private track and boasts country walks in abundance. Don your boots and explore the locale or simply pull up a pew at your new home from home and enjoy this scenic haven with all its lovely comforts and thoughtful details.

Separated across two floors, the ground of the cottage features the living area. In a modern open-plan design, there’s no part of your day that isn’t catered for. Relax on the sofa or armchair and switch on the TV for the morning news, coffee in hand. A selection of books is also provided for you to read if you’ve finished your own or simply fancy something different. In the kitchen, detail and function blend to create a cute, compact space with everything you could need. Cook up a culinary sensation and sit down around the dining table for meals at home. Upstairs, there is a pretty bedroom with lots of light and soothing decor, and a bathroom with walk-in shower. For sunny afternoons, the large, unenclosed garden is the place to be. Head across the parking area and over a small bridged stream and picnic on the lawn.

Enjoy Dorset’s rich natural beauty and explore the locale on foot. Many footpaths are easily accessible near and far. Beyond the immediate area, a whole playground awaits. Only 5.5 miles from West Bay and 7 miles from Hive Beach, you can inhale the reviving scent of sea air and skim stones across the water’s surface. For shops and eateries, Bridport is 4 miles away and Beaminster is 5.5 miles away.

The cottage was lovely to use as a base. A little remote as needed to use the car every time and is on a working farm. Once we located footpaths, which are just behind the cottage. We had some lovely walks with our dog. Large garden to sit and relax in and the dog can play securely. This is just used by the cottage resident. The owners are next dooRead morer and very warm and friendly people. 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.
