With contemporary decor, picturesque village surroundings and castle ruins to admire, this detached stone-built property is a great choice for a family holiday with easy access to the coast.

The charming village of Corfe Castle sits below the much-photographed castle ruins cared for by the National Trust. The village is well serviced with local amenities and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, including the ancient Corfe Castle Common. Miles of footpaths are easily accessible via nearby Red Lane or take the steam train from the village station to the traditional seaside town of Swanage where you can enjoy the sandy beach and amusements on offer. Heading north from the property takes you to the unspoilt beaches of Studland Bay. For a fun-filled day out, visit the ever-popular Tank Museum or Monkey World ape rescue centre.

 Three external steps give access to this detached stone-built property, which is conveniently set alongside the main road through the village. Once inside you are met with an open-plan kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped with a gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Leading on from here to the right are two double bedrooms and a set of steep ladder-style stairs rising to the first floor. Set within the eaves is a cosy twin bedroom and a separate WC. Due to its location, there are some areas of restricted head height within this room. Once back on the ground floor, there is a step down into the inner hallway, which leads to the contemporary bathroom with shower over bath and WC. Completing the accommodation is a comfortable lounge with a Smart TV.

French doors open from the dining area into the rear garden. This area is set across multiple levels with a patio area, furniture and raised borders. To the side and front of the property are three off-road parking spaces.

  • 3 bedrooms – 2 double and 1 twin

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.
