This humble retreat has been fitted and furnished to a delightful standard throughout, offering the perfect bolt hole for a couple whatever time of year.

Not far from Somerset and perched on the edge of the Dorset and Devon border, this stunning cottage is ideal for those hoping to tour the south of England. Located on the owner’s property but with privacy assured, this annexe offers an ever-comfortable base for two on a romantic walkers’ holiday. The varied landscapes of coast and countryside in the three surrounding counties ensure there isn’t a dull moment for those prepped with hiking boots or bikes, whilst Dorset’s beautiful coastline also offers glorious beaches for those who prefer to lounge on the sand on a sunny afternoon.

Step inside to find a bright and cheerful property with clean white walls and contemporary décor throughout. You’ll first be greeted by a lounge with dining space that’s fit for two and French doors leading directly onto the patio. Enjoy morning coffee right here at the bistro set or whilst relaxing on the sofa. The lounge also features a flame-effect electric fire and TV for cosy nights in. Continue through into the adjacent kitchen, well equipped for preparing a packed lunch or a romantic evening meal, whilst a spacious king-size bedroom with a dedicated dressing area completes the cottage’s offering.

Step out on foot and discover the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep. Your nearest beach will be the ever-popular Lyme Regis (4 miles), a fantastic place to spend a day on the sand or explore seaside attractions. This is also a great kicking off point for walks along the South West Coastal Path and Dorset’s unforgettable Jurassic Coast. Cross over into Devon to explore the seafront towns of Seaton (7.5 miles) and Sidmouth (15 miles), enjoying an afternoon at Beer Quarry Caves (10 miles). Closer to home you’ll find the quaint Devon town of Axminster (2 miles), complete with a lovely wildlife park (3.5 miles).

A really lovely property set in a very quiet location and a short journey to Axminister the nearest town. Ample parking and with the owners being so close any problems would be instantly resolved. It is ideal for two people just wanting a place to come back to at night and you are not far from all the local seaside towns. If youi are going out for Read moredinner don't bank on taxis as they will let you down. the owners are wonderful people and the site is emaculate. Well worth the money. Hide

Such a wonderful stay. Really comfortable bed and such a spacious bedroom. Nice and dark in the room at night and so quiet. Beautiful views. Everything you need to self cater. A good base for travelling by car. Would have walked to the pub if staying during lighter evenings, prob a mile away. Would stay again without hesitation.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
