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.

Less than a mile from the beach, this delightful stone barn conversion is set in a peaceful location with panoramic views of National Trust farmland. Situated at the end of a quiet lane on Willowhayne Farm, the property is one of six to be created within the former barn. Its proximity to the coast, shop (less than 1 mile) and pub (0.5 miles), make this the perfect choice for families or a group of friends looking for a relaxing seaside break.

A landscaped gravelled area leads through a porch and stable door into this split-level property. You’ll find one of the bedrooms on this floor, with a double bed and a single bed. A half-flight of stairs leads down into the large, open-plan living area. This modern yet homely space features a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge. Head back up to entry-level and take a further half-flight of stairs up, and you’ll find the double bedroom with wonderful countryside views. Music fans will love this room’s integrated sound system for iPod/MP3. The bathroom, with a shower over the bath, is also on this level. Head outside from the lounge to your private, unenclosed patio. A chimenea and BBQ make this the perfect spot for enjoying a little al fresco dining. It leads to a large lawn, which is shared with the other five properties. There is also off-road parking for one car.

Chideock is within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and fantastic for walkers. It’s also less than a mile from Seatown beach, a popular fossil-hunting spot, with a fascinating history of smuggling. If you’re feeling a little more energetic, from there you can climb the 191 metres (or 627 feet) to the top of Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast of England. The views from the top are terrific!

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

This property is in an excellent location down a long farm driveway so no noise at all from the main road . The views are stunning from the living room and main bedroom onto the coastal Hills and Golden Cap can be seen to the right. If you have a dog which we did you can walk straight out onto fields and hills no need for a lead. Chideock itself isRead more nicely located to get to places and has two local pubs within walking distance. Hide

Perfect location in beautiful countryside. Local beach is just 15 mins walk away with a great pub. For other beaches you can enjoy the challenge of the wonderful coastal path or take a short drive. Great farm shop only 5 min drive away. Cant wait to book a return trip!

A family of three with a dog, we thought this a pleasant cottage in a great location for West Dorset beaches and close to lovely Bridport but beware if you are a dog-owner as you have to always keep them on lead in the shared garden and Seatown beach -the one you can walk to- also never allows dogs, even in winter. The cottage is well-equipped exceRead morept for the lack of a cupboard to store food in. The beds are comfy; water pressure is good and it's very quiet and peaceful. 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.
