Stunning 18th-century cottage with many period features and beautifully handcrafted bespoke kitchen, located conveniently for access to the coast and the famous White Horse.

Full of original charm, this end-of-row 18th-century cottage sits just half a mile from the sea at Osmington. Inside, original features abound with exposed stone, beams and fireplaces, while outside the sunny rear garden backs onto a grassy footpath. Set out on foot and stroll into the village, stock up on local delicacies at the farm shop before heading south to the coast at Osmington Mills (0.5 miles) for a picnic on the beach or a long walk along the South West Coast Path.

Retaining its original bread oven and inglenook fireplace, the kitchen/diner is brimming with character. Bespoke handmade kitchen worktops, an oak dining table and a delightful window seat add to this room’s charm. Next door, a more contemporary lounge has been finished with fresh neutral decor, oak flooring, a wood burner for cosy evenings in and French doors to the garden for sunny days. Upstairs, the three bedrooms are all beamed, with views over the garden to the wooded hillside beyond. Stepping outside, a sunny patio area with garden furniture leads to a good-sized lawn area surrounded by flower beds and shrubs, setting the scene for relaxing summer BBQs. There is ample parking.

Surrounded by beautiful unspoilt Dorset countryside, this property is perfect for keen walkers. After a stroll to see the famous White Horse on the South Dorset Downs, head to the coast at Osmington Mills for a hearty lunch with a view at the Smugglers Inn. Beach lovers do not have far to go, with the sandy stretch at Weymouth just 5.5 miles away and the stunning white pebble bay at Lulworth Cove just 11 miles to the east.

Parking is OK for two cars. Holiday went very well, met and got on well with the owners. Neighbours gave us advice on the locality so all was good. Could perhaps do with a sweep of spiders.

Beautifully presented cottage in delightful rural area close to Weymouth. The cottage is comfortable with private sunny garden. Plenty of country walks in surrounding countryside and great seaside town of Weymouth just a couple of miles away.

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.
