First-floor barn conversion property enjoying a village location in East Dorset, within easy reach of the county’s famous coastline, just a short drive from Bournemouth and Poole.

A welcoming two-person retreat, this first-floor apartment in the village of Lytchett Matravers is ideal for solo escapers and romantic breakers holidaying with dogs. Within 1.5 miles of popular village pubs and amenities, you can enjoy a drawn-out walk or quick drive into the village and dip in and out of local life. Even more appealing, this property is only 11 miles from the sprawling Dorset AONB and 7.5 miles from the coastal town of Poole with its plethora of beaches – ideal for those looking to make the most of the county’s diverse landscapes and scenery.

To get acquainted with your new home-from-home, head up some stairs and enter the apartment. Inside, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner will greet you with beautiful, exposed beams, characterful sloping ceilings and lots of natural light. Staying true to its roots, this property is full of charm – sympathetically mingling period features with contemporary furnishings and accoutrements. Make yourself comfortable among the lounge’s comfortable seating and enjoy the superb views from the panoramic window. Or, if you feel like getting creative, harness your skills in the well-equipped kitchen and rustle up some food to serve around the dining table. Completing the picture is a master bedroom with a balcony and an en-suite shower room.

Only 5 miles from the coast, this property is particularly well-suited to fans of the coast. If you love wildlife, you can visit Lytchett Bay, an internationally recognised conservation area crucial for wading birds and wildfowl, or you can hop on a boat to Brownsea Island, home of rare red squirrels. Another day, you should make tracks to Poole (7.5 miles); a hub of activity, this large coastal town boasts the world’s second largest natural harbour, award-winning blue flag beaches (including the famous Sandbanks), a vibrant quayside and a picturesque historic old town.

Wonderful location in the grounds of a beautiful Grade 1 listed thatched cottage. We loved the views from the apartment windows and from the balcony. The owners, Jo and Eve, were really friendly and helpful and we loved the home-made cakes available to order.

Great accomodation in lovely place. Plenty to do in the area. Just mind your head on the beams. No fast internet here yet but enough for browsing and emails. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, friendly and helpful hosts who have a great garden.

Location

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.
