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

Set in a courtyard of Grade II-listed converted farm buildings, this charming property is perfect for relaxing family getaways by the coast.

Keen cooks will delight in preparing delicious meals in the stunning contemporary kitchen, which is fitted with chic white units, quartz worktops and state-of-the-art appliances. Once prepared, enjoy meals in the spacious triple aspect lounge/diner, where plump sofas surround a beamed fireplace with a wood burner, and French doors open onto the patio.

There is a useful boot room and an allocated parking space for one car.

The cottage was worth the 2 year wait due to covid. It was as the photos showed it to be: clean and comfortable. Location was spot on as just a short walk to the cove and pub. Roads were well linked too. Very comfortable for the week. Would come again.

The Cowshed is a lovely little cottage, very well maintained by the Housekeeper, extremely well equipped and comfortably furnished. It is within a very short walk down to the Cove and Durdle Door, and is well located for trips to all the other popular visitor sites in the area. One of the best cottages that we have rented over the years.

Absolutely immaculate and very well equipped cottage. Third visit here and will be back again. A huge thank you to the cleaner/caretaker for making sure everything felt safe and clean in the current climate. Great location - far enough out of the very busy cove but near enough to walk down and enjoy the facilities there.

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.
