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.

Located just a quarter of a mile outside the peaceful village of West Milton along a private track, this cottage sits adjacent to the owner’s farmhouse and enjoys a secluded location in the rolling countryside of Dorset. Head out on foot across the gentle hills and make your way to the local pub for respite or venture a little further afield to enjoy the beautiful coast. Just 5.5 miles away, you will find the picturesque West Bay, home to sandy beaches and rugged clifftops along with a selection of independent shops and eateries; you could easily while away your days here. Further along the coast (14.5 miles), is Lyme Regis, home to the marine fossil displays of Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and the sweeping Monmouth Beach.

Step inside this chocolate-box cottage to discover impressive beamed interiors, entering into the open-plan living area made up of the kitchen, diner and lounge. The snug lounge offers a comfortable sofa, so you can cosy up of an evening in front of the TV. The bright and airy kitchen is complete with everything you’ll need to cook up a storm before sitting down in the quaint dining area to appreciate it. Following a day of discovery, make your way upstairs to find a restful double-aspect bedroom complete with comfortable 5ft double bed, colourful soft furnishings and wonderful views over the farm. Next door, there is a spacious shower room.

Outside, cross the parking area and walk over a bridge spanning the mill stream and you will find a large unenclosed sloping lawn area complete with summer house, apple trees and pretty flower beds – the perfect space to soak up the peace and quiet. Throw down a picnic blanket to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining or start your day with a morning coffee as you sit out to the front of the cottage and take in the countryside views. Many footpaths criss-cross over the organic dairy farm, from which you can explore the stunning landscape. The cottage offers ample off-road parking.

Absolutely super, clean, warm, quiet with everything I and the dogs needed. Owners were just across the yard and very friendly without being intrusive. Loved the informative folders of local places, events, walks etc to visit.

Location

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.
