Peacefully located in a quiet cul-de-sac, this modern barn enjoys fabulous views across fields and hills. Just half a mile from the stunning beach at Lulworth Cove and a short walk from the famous rock arch at Durdle Door, it is perfect for family holidays by the sea. Inside, light and airy rooms abound, with wooden flooring, exposed beams, a wood burner and several doors opening onto the charming walled garden.

Prepare and enjoy lovely family meals in the traditionally-styled spacious kitchen/diner, featuring exposed beams above, stone flooring below and a door opening onto the garden. With three sets of French doors to the garden together with a fantastic wood burner set into a beamed fireplace, the lounge is a wonderful room in which to relax all year round.

There is parking for three cars.

Just half a mile from the Dorset coastline, this property is only a short walk to the stunning white pebbled beach and crystal-clear waters of Lulworth Cove. From here, follow the South West Coast Path west to reach the iconic rock formation at Durdle Door (1.5 miles) or head east for Mupe Bay (2 miles). Back in Lulworth Cove, the village boasts two popular pubs and cafes for refuelling after a busy morning on the coast.

A well positioned holiday cottage that was beautifully finished and well equipped. The variety of rooms meant there was plenty of space for us all to relax after some long local walking.

Ideal cottage for 6 adults. Warm and cosy over New Year and close to an excellent pub and short walk to Lulworth Cove. Wood burning stove a bonus. Kitchen very well equipped and has 2 fridge freezers (one in garage with direct access through utility room).

A beautiful property, very well equipped and well maintained. The kitchen is a joy and other rooms all quite generous. The extra frig/freezer in the garage comes in handy. Hot water/heating worked perfectly for us. The view out to the rear, over the field to the church is most pleasing. Local walks down to the cove and over the hills to Durdle DoorRead more are enjoyable. Hide

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.
