Only 3.5 miles from the iconic Lulworth Cove, this charming cottage offers families and groups of friends the chance to relax and unwind surrounded by breathtaking countryside.

Set in the beautiful village of Coombe Keynes, this stunning Grade II listed former farm labourer’s cottage simply oozes country charm. From the thatched roof to the heavy wooden front door, this property is truly a country gem. The local shop and pub are just 1.5 miles away, ideal for when you just need to pop out for some provisions or a quick spot of lunch.

Upon entering the cottage, the period features of this property greet you straight away. Entering through the hall into the sitting room, the decor and furniture in this space add to the homely and warm feel. Exposed low beams and a feature inglenook fireplace with original bread oven and window seat only add to the charm of the property. Take two steps down through the dining room and playroom and down two steps into the kitchen. This room has a typical country feel but with all modern conveniences and a breakfast table for getting the family together in the morning. The bathroom on this floor is light and airy and there is also a rear hall with storage space for coats and boots – ideal after a muddy dog walk. Upstairs, there are three good-sized bedrooms with reduced ceiling height under the eaves, all decorated to maximise the light that streams in through the windows. There is also an additional WC on this floor. The outside of the property is set on three levels with steps in between and there are decked areas and a patio for outside dining. Parking is available for two cars.

If you fancy going a little further afield to explore the local area, just 4 miles away is the beautiful Lulworth Cove. Take a coastal walk to see the iconic Durdle Door limestone arch with its tunnels and passageways and if you like a spot of history on your holiday, visit the 16th-century Lulworth Castle where you can explore the ruins as well as visiting the brilliant animal farm on site.

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.
