Set in a tranquil spot on the edge of a picturesque village, this impressive 19th century stone barn conversion offers cosy accommodation for a family seeking to enjoy the idyllic Dorset countryside.

Dating back to the 19th century, this stone barn conversion occupies a peaceful setting on the edge of the village of Osmington. With wonderful rural views to the famous King George chalk figure, many fantastic walks can be enjoyed directly from the doorstep through rolling countryside to the sea. Afterwards, return to the property for an al fresco meal in the stunning cottage garden, a cosy evening in beside the wood burner or a hearty meal out at the local pub.

Inside, this historic building has been given a homely, colourful and welcoming 21st-century makeover.

The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped and the garden was beautiful. We were particularly impressed with the welcome pack which included Prosecco and cake as we were celebrating a birthday during our stay.

Traditional looking cottage, spacious with a lovely log burner in the lounge area - which was put to good use. Felt like a home for us.

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.
