This pretty Grade II-listed mid-row cottage is the ideal retreat for all the family. With a pub next door and a stunning garden, this is a true countryside getaway.

Located in the centre of the pretty village of Church Knowle with superb views of the Purbeck Hills from the garden, this holiday let has an abundance of character in a great location for both coast and country. The National Trust’s Corfe Castle is just 2 miles away, while Kimmeridge Bay (3.5 miles) is known as the safest snorkelling site in Dorset; if you and the kids like fossil hunting, Worbarrow Bay (5 miles) is the place to go. Take advantage of the traditional village pub just next door, or head into Wareham (6 miles) for a wider choice of bars and restaurants.

Inside the cottage, a traditional farmhouse style gives the property a welcoming and cosy feel. Stone flooring welcomes you into the hall and the breakfast room, where an ornamental fireplace and pine furniture help you get ready for the day; the kitchen also boasts this wonderful flooring and has everything you need, including a sink, oven, dishwasher and microwave. Retire to the lounge and sink into the sofas in front of the wood burner, relaxing among the exposed beams and soft, cosy decoration. Head through the stable door from the kitchen into the conservatory which acts as a dining room, offering stunning views out into the garden and glimpses of the cottage’s original exterior. Dry your clothes after a beach walk in the drier in the utility room that also includes a WC. Upstairs, all the bedrooms have reduced height at the eaves, so watch your head! On the first floor, two double bedrooms with calming, neutral decor and wood furniture make for a peaceful night’s sleep; one bright and airy bathroom features a shower over the bath and WC while the second bathroom has a shower. Heading up to the second floor via two separate staircases, you’ll find two twin bedrooms with wonderful exposed beams and a Victorian ornamental fireplace in one of the rooms to complement the quirky ceiling and wall shapes.

Leading out to the rear garden from the conservatory, the small patio with garden furniture is a perfect spot to enjoy an al fresco bite to eat overlooking the spectacular Purbeck Hills. The garden is well screened from the pub garden and has a pretty lawn surrounded by trees and shrubs. There is parking directly outside the cottage on the village lane.

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

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
