Property code: 40772

This well presented annexe has been lovingly converted and refurbished making it a perfect getaway for couples. Situated next to the owners’ property with its own entrance and driveway, a warm welcome awaits yet your privacy is assured.

Set in rural splendour 9.5 miles from the pebble shoreline of Lyme Regis is this charming couple’s retreat. Ideally located for exploring the string of marvellous beaches lining the Jurassic Coast, you’ll soon be navigating cliff-top trails and admiring the sea views. Lyme Regis is a popular destination for walkers, foodies and budding historians alike, so there’s lots to discover amongst the cobbled streets. On your return, fire up the BBQ and sip ice-cold drinks from the comfort of your private decked garden.

Bright, spacious and comfortable throughout, the property is homely and inviting with cosy furniture and everything you need to relax and unwind. Sink into the sofas and watch TV after a busy day, rustle up a feast in the kitchen and enjoy mealtimes around the table. Outside, your courtyard garden is small but perfect for catching the last of the sunshine over your favourite tipple. At bedtime, climb the stairs to find a pretty bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

Nestled in a peaceful village location with access to woodland walks and within easy reach of the coast, your accommodation is well placed for your Dorset adventure. The Axe Valley Wildlife Park is 6 miles away for a day trip, yet the market town of Chard is even closer with its historic Forde Abbey and bustling town centre 4.5 miles away. Navigate the Blackdown Hills with ease, pausing at a village pub for a hearty meal and pint of refreshing local ale. Lyme Regis is a treat for fine dining thanks to the plethora of bars, bistros and restaurants available, and by day the museum, galleries and amusements along the promenade are a treat to peruse.

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

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.
