This charming property is set in the heart of an idyllic village and is ideally placed for spending your days at the beach, touring the Jurassic Coast, or simply relaxing in the cottage garden.

Set in the small, picturesque village of Langton Herring, which is one of the few doubly "Thankful Villages" in England as records show that all men returned from both First and Second World Wars. The village has a popular gastro pub and wonderful views of Chesil beach, this stylish property is the ideal base for a family holiday. There is a wide network of walking routes nearby, including the Southwest Coast Path. Weymouth is only 6 miles away and has a sandy beach backed by shops, cafés, and restaurants, and the old harbour is worth a visit, where you can try your hand at fishing or take a boat trip. Those wishing to delve into local history can explore the Victorian Nothe Fort and the ancient ruins of the cliffside Sandsfoot castle. Other places of interest are Abbotsbury, 4 miles away, and Bridport, Burton Bradstock, and the Isle of Portland are within 15 miles.

A pathway leads from the lane to the entrance into this terraced cottage. Once inside you are met with a striking lounge immediately to your right. This characterful room has an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner and a Smart TV. Leading off of here is a comfortable king-size bedroom. Heading further into the cottage brings you to the split-level kitchen diner. The kitchen area is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. A rear hallway gives access to a shower room with WC and a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Heading back through into the lounge will bring you to the steep cottage-style staircase, which leads to the first floor. There is a choice of two inviting bedrooms on this level, one is the master bedroom with a super-king size, and the other is a double. A further steep flight of stairs takes you up into the eaves of the property and to a stylish bathroom with shower over bath and WC. Due to the age of the property, there are some areas of restricted head height throughout, which only adds to its character and charm.

A door leads from the rear hallway into the garden. There is a patio area with comfortable seating and a fire pit adjacent to the cottage and a path leads up into the cottage-style garden and a further patio area with furniture which is ideal for dining. To the rear of the property is an off-road parking space suitable for 1 car.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
