With panoramic views of the Dorset countryside, this fantastic barn conversion makes a perfect holiday retreat for a couple or a family looking for a cosy getaway just a few miles from Bridport.

The lovely villages of Chideock and Seatown (both within a mile) have a great choice of pubs serving meals, and there are miles of beautiful walks to enjoy nearby including the stunning coastline near Golden Cap (2 miles). The nearest beaches include Seatown, Eype (3 miles), West Bay (4 miles) and Charmouth (5 miles). There’s plenty to do along these beaches including fossil hunting, crabbing, swimming, fishing and boat trips. The vibrant Georgian market town of Bridport (3 miles) has an abundance of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, and is known as the gateway to Dorset’s prehistoric Jurassic Coast – a World Heritage Site. Heading inland you can visit Forde Abbey (14 miles), Pilsdon Pen (7.5 miles) and Lewesdon Hill (8 miles).

On entering this light and stylish holiday home, there’s a porch useful for coats and boots. A half-flight of steps leads you down into the bright and tastefully furnished open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. With plenty of attractive seating, the lounge is an ideal space for relaxing in, with a TV/DVD so you can snuggle up and enjoy a movie in the evening. There’s also a delightful dining area. Heading over to the kitchen, it is fully equipped with everything you may need including an oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and dryer. Exploring further there’s a comfortable bedroom on the ground floor with three single beds. You will also find a double bedroom with an iPod dock and which offers views over the nearby hills. This room is reached via a half-flight of stairs. There is also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Stepping outside you can unwind in the unenclosed but private patio area where you will find a BBQ, chimenea and outdoor furniture. This leads onto a large lawn which is shared with the other properties on-site and is bordered by a tiny brook. There is also a larger lawn to the side of the barns which is perfect for children’s games. Off-road parking is available for one car. A quiet stroll through local footpaths will lead you down to the beach – and the pub – at Seatown.

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

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
