Beautiful countryside cottage in with soaring views across the Purbeck Hills. Attractive gardens and rustic charm characterise this lovely Dorset family retreat.

Discover what peace, quiet and calm really feels like with this glorious village location and Grade II listed building. A converted farm building, this cottage is located within a sleepy village with endless views over the rolling countryside and the Purbeck Hills. The stresses and strains of everyday life will feel like a distant memory and any tension will just melt away with this relaxing rural retreat. The nearest shop is just 0.5 miles and the pub 200 yards. The beauty of Lulworth Cove and the coastline is also just a short half-mile hop, while the town of Wareham is 8 miles away.

The approach to the property provides a clue to the high standard inside with open gardens including lawn, flowers and a paved path. The whole property is spread over a single storey so it’s easy to move around without having to navigate a staircase. The light and spacious lounge and diner is immediately to your left as you enter. With Sky TV, an iPod Dock and a DVD player, you don’t need to go out if you prefer to just relax. The crackle of the wood burner and the soft, sumptuous sofas provide a wonderful way to unwind. The kitchen is next to the lounge and is sleek, modern and fitted with everything you need, including a wine chiller. A boot room provides extra space for drying your clothes, complete with tumble drier. Two double bedrooms can be found further along the hallway, one with an en-suite bathroom and shower cubicle. If you prefer to soak in a warm bath, there’s also a generously sized family bathroom too.

The rear of the property is just as spectacular as the rest, with steps down to a private patio. Flagstones lead you around the lawn with two further terraced areas and a shaded pergola. With the Purbeck Hills gently rolling into the horizon, you’ll feel as if you’re in the midst of your own private Mediterranean-style escape. Add in a spot of al fresco dining as you watch the sun go down and it’s an idyllic end to the day. A car is recommended for this location and there is allocated parking for one vehicle included.

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
