Built from local Purbeck stone, this traditional barn-style property has fabulous rural views and is just half a mile from the magnificent Lulworth Cove, making it an ideal family holiday home.

Built of Purbeck stone in a traditional barn style, this modern home sits in a peaceful cul-de-sac with fabulous views to fields and hills. Inside, exposed beams and a wood burner create a cosy atmosphere while a spacious modern kitchen and French doors to the garden add a contemporary touch. Take a leisurely stroll to the local pub for a delicious meal or continue to Lulworth Cove (0.5 miles) to relax on the pebble beach or join the magnificent South West Coast Path.

With a tiled floor, oak worktops and French doors opening onto the garden, the kitchen/diner is a spacious, bright and contemporary room for entertaining. At the end of a tiring day, take a load off in the homely lounge next door where a wood burner creates a warm and cosy atmosphere in winter and French doors open onto the garden for those warm summer days. Outside, a sunny al fresco dining area looks out onto a large walled lawn and miles of rolling Dorset countryside beyond. There is parking for two cars.

Lulworth Cove is one of Dorset’s most famous beauty spots, with its white pebbled beach, crystal clear water and easy access. Enjoy a refreshing swim at high tide before the water creeps back to reveal wonderful rock pools teeming with sea creatures. Lulworth is home to a good selection of pubs and cafes with further amenities in nearby Winfrith Newburgh (3 miles) and Wool (4.5 miles). A little further afield, the lively seaside resort of Weymouth (14.5 miles) is perfect for a family day out with its sandy beach, harbour and watersports.

We have just had the most enjoyable holiday. Made special not only by the beauty of Dorset, but by the quality of the Cottage and its situation. The children loved seeing the sheep in the field at the back of the garden every day.

Sea Thrift was the perfect base to enjoy a family break, with our two young daughters. It was exceptionally clean and well equipped, had a very cosy feel, and was only a 10 minute stroll to Lulworth Cove, with it's breathtaking scenery. We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

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.
