Ever popular Corfe Castle is home to the much-photographed castle ruins, which are in the care of the National Trust. Within the village centre there is a great range of local amenities including pubs, independent shops, a grocery store and a bakery. The village is surrounded by rolling countryside, including Corfe Castle Common, which is criss-crossed with miles of footpaths through spectacular scenery. A steam railway line runs from Corfe Castle to Swanage (4 miles) and is a great way to visit this seaside town, which boasts traditional amusements and a sandy beach. Other popular destinations are Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door both with in a 13.5 mile radius. Also easily accessible is Arne nature reserve (4 miles), The Tank Museum (9 miles), Studland (5 miles) and Monkey World (8 miles).

A sloping path gives access into this single-story property. Once inside you are met with a welcoming hallway, ideal for leaving muddy boots and coats. There is a useful separate WC too. Immediately to your right is a door to the stylish open plan lounge/diner. This sociable space has a light and bright ambience and a comfortable seating area with Smart TV. You will find space to dine just opposite. The contemporary kitchen is just along the hallway and is equipped with an electric range style cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine and washer/dryer. Heading back into the hallway will take you to the bedrooms. There are three to choose from, a pretty single, a charming double and a spacious king-size bedroom. Completing the accommodation is a stylish bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Heading outside via the kitchen you will find the garden. Mostly laid to lawn with established shrubs, patio area, charcoal BBQ and furniture, this is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink or meal. To the front of the property is a driveway offering off road parking for two cars.

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.
