Set in a delightful rural location, this Grade II listed thatched cottage makes a wonderful holiday home for a couple or a small family wanting a tranquil country retreat within easy reach of the sea.

This beautifully-refurbished, Grade II-listed cottage is located in the peaceful village of Burton Bradstock. This charming two-bedroom property enjoys a quiet location at the end of a row of traditional stone-walled cottages, in a side street near the parish church. It retains many original features, including flagstone floors on the ground level. With the shop and pubs just 100 metres away, and the beach just half a mile, this home is perfect for couples or families looking for a relaxing, seaside holiday.

A cosy and welcoming sitting room awaits as you enter the cottage, with a Smart TV and wood burner-style electric fire. Chairs and a sofa offer the perfect spots to relax and put your feet up after a busy day of exploring. Settle down for something to eat in the cosy dining room, with a window seat and antique court cupboard. The well-equipped galley kitchen leads through a low doorway into a handy utility area. The shower room is also on the ground floor. Head upstairs and you’ll find a king-size bedroom with an en-suite WC, along with a single bedroom. Don’t forget to mind your head in the eaves! To the side of the cottage, a step leads up to a delightful stone walled garden with a lawn. There’s also parking for one car on the gravel drive.

Keen walkers will love exploring the countless trails to be found along the Jurassic coastline, as well as in the surrounding countryside. While staying here, though, be sure to visit some of the county’s popular towns. Bridport (3 miles) is a lively little place, famous for its many markets. A visit to West Bay and its harbour, which famously featured in the ITV series Broadchurch, is also a must.

Had the most wonderful stay at Thatch End Cottage. The location was lovely and quiet and everyone in the village was so friendly. It felt like a real home and had everything you could possibly need.

Stunning little cottage, everything you would want in our opinion, perfect holiday base in a beautiful location, 10 minutes Walk from the beach . We will be stopping here again definitely, what more of a recommendation could that be, not the cheapest but I guess you have to pay a premium for the location.

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.
