This is a wonderfully comfortable cottage with a huge amount of space and really high quality furniture, equipment etc. Think of a cottage by Country Living magazine and you are not far of the mark. The location is great; in the heart of the countryside but a short drive form the lovely Dorset coast.

No 1 Coombe Cottages : A brilliant conversion from cattle shed to beautiful accommodation. It was our second visit and we loved it as much as last year. It's on one level and has a fantastic walk-in shower so it's ideal for my elderly disabled husband. I adore the Highland Cattle and sheep in the fields around the farm. It is very hilly but has fanRead moretastic views. It also has a safe contained little garden for our dog, who must be kept on the lead around the farm because of the livestock. Hide

Location

Map
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.

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.
