Set just outside the thriving town of Bridport this light, colourful and attractive detached cottage makes a great base for a family seeking to explore the wonderful west coast of Dorset.

This stunning former Rectory Coach House, converted in the early 19th century, is located in the quaint hamlet of Bothenhampton. Situated on a no-through lane, the property benefits from a quiet location, but with easy access to the local pub (0.5 miles) and shop (0.75 miles).

Through the porch into the tiled floor hall, you will find a downstairs bathroom with shower – ideal for after a morning run or a walk with the dog! There is a beautiful traditional sitting room for relaxing with a good book and an open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room where the whole family can cook, eat and then relax together to watch a favourite programme. A spacious conservatory opens out into the garden, offering the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor living. Upstairs, there is a stunning double room with en-suite shower room which benefits from views of the Rectory parkland, and a separate double bedroom and family bathroom with shower. The spectacular garden is mainly laid to lawn with some trees and shrubs, and there is a patio with BBQ for outside dining. The property offers off-road parking for one car; if additional space is needed, you can park another car on the street nearby.

Within a short distance from the property are West Bay (1 mile) with its working harbour and cafes, and Bridport (1.5 miles) with its spectacular twice-weekly markets selling local produce, arts and crafts, bric-a-brac and antiques – why not pop down and see if you can grab a bargain? You can also visit Bridport’s extensive artistic community on South Street where you can visit the Arts Centre with its contemporary theatre.

Beautiful accommodation very spacious, well equipped and had a lovely garden. Beds were huge and very comfortable. Excellent location in a small village. Lovely walks from the front door, but also only 5 minutes in a car to West Bay. Would definitely stay there again.

There are so many more utensils/equipment in the cottage that are not mentioned in the brochure such as the Nespresso machine, and the amount of baking/cooking equipment is amazing. The position is superb ,if you like walks this is an ideal location with circular and other paths right on your doorstop , west bay is about 45 minutes and Bridport towRead moren about 15 minutes walk. Really could not find fault with anything, was a perfect stay with our dogs 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.
