Traditional thatched cottage set within a village location, perfectly situated to offer a blend of country and coastal getaway for families, with many of the Jurassic Coast’s attractions within easy reach.

Sitting between three quaint villages, this brick and thatched cottage enjoys a peaceful location whilst being conveniently situated to explore many of the local attractions on offer. Located on a cobbled lane off the village street, you can venture 4 miles south to arrive at the picture-perfect Lulworth Cove with its blue waters and stunning unique geology to explore or try your hand at some water sports. Just 3 miles away you can enjoy a trip to the popular hot spot that is Durdle Door; one of the Jurassic Coast’s most photographed and iconic landmarks. What’s more, you can travel just 11.5 miles to arrive in Weymouth or 17.5 miles in the opposite direction to reach Poole, so you won’t be short of family-friendly experiences.

Step inside this pretty chocolate-box cottage to be greeted by equally as attractive interiors throughout, creating a homely space to be enjoyed by the whole family. Featuring eyebrow dormer windows and 2ft thick walls, this former farm building retains an abundance of character. Upon entry you’ll step into the cosy lounge complete with a traditional fireplace housing a wood burner, so you can fire it up of an evening and settle down in front of the TV with DVD. There are also plenty of DVDs and games to keep you entertained. Behind the lounge sits a compact dining area where you can enjoy family dining after you’ve cooked up a storm in the traditional, yet well-equipped kitchen area. When the day is done, make your way upstairs to take your pick of the two restful double bedrooms; both cosy under the eaves of the cottage. The first floor is also home to the house bathroom complete with bath and shower overhead, so you can enjoy indulgent soaks of an evening. Please note, the cottage has low beams and doorways throughout, with a cottage-style staircase leading to the first floor.

Outside, you can enjoy the quaint Mediterranean-style walled garden that is a real sun trap during the warmer months. The garden is enclosed, so it’s a perfect space to let the dogs enjoy a runaround. Throw down a picnic blanket and enjoy family afternoons in the sun or simply soak up the peace and quiet as you enjoy your favourite book or glossy magazine. Roadside parking is available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Milton Cottage is wonderful in many ways. Situated not too far from the coast and Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door but also located peacefully away from the main towns in the village of Winfrith. The cottage has all you need for a lovely stay, with plenty of stocked cupboards if you want to cook or not far from pubs etc if eating out is your thing. We Read morefound ourselves entertained with many books, games and puzzles which kept the kids away from the TV for a while! However the most wonderful thing about Milton Cottage is the hosts who made us feel so welcome. 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.
