This immaculate reverse level cottage has been refurbished to a high standard and has an interesting and quirky layout. Situated in a convenient location close to the beach and town centre, this is the perfect getaway for couples.

Wonderfully located in the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage, make yourselves at home in this inviting bolthole. Leave the car behind and stroll around the local town of Bridport (1 mile) or visit the beaches at West Bay (1.5 miles) before cosying up at your home from home for a relaxing night. Perfect for romantic escapes, this home sleeps two guests and has access to the owner’s garden where you can enjoy sunsets and sundowners.

Step up and make your way inside to get comfortable in the welcoming lounge where a wood burner effect electric fire promises to keep the chill at bay. Settle down with a book or put your favourite film on and unwind. Heading up to the first floor you can find the pretty kitchen/diner which overlooks the garden below. Rustle up delicious feasts for two and dine at the table, or head back downstairs and into the shared garden for an al fresco meal. Before heading to bed on the first floor, grab your clothes from the dryer, which can be found in an adjacent outbuilding, so you are ready for the day ahead. Snuggle under the covers and drift off for a peaceful sleep in the king-size bedroom which is light and airy. Rise feeling refreshed and enjoy a soak in the tub to start your day, or if you’re heading out early, rinse off in the shower over the bath. There is roadside parking on the private lane outside for one car.

Perfectly positioned for exploring iconic locations on the Jurassic Coast, wander 1.5 miles to West Bay for a beach day to remember. Fill your day with sea swims, sunbathing and fish and chips or walk 5 miles to the National Trust owned Golden Cap Estate and wander high above the ocean for magnificent views. Spend a morning strolling the streets of Bridport (1 mile) which are dotted with quirky shops and eateries so you can book a table and enjoy a date night away from the kitchen.

Ideally situated for exploring the delights of Dorset this stone cottage is located between Bridport and West Bay. Its unique layout with the lounge downstairs and everything else upstairs is a little unusual but does not detract from the comfort and tranquility offered. Access to a small enclosed garden is an added bonus when the sun shines.

Ideally situated for walking and sightseeing in West Dorset. Very comfortable and cosy, lovely back garden. Everything that we needed was supplied, easy parking. Quirky with kitchen upstairs but it was lovely to sit at the table and look over the garden while having meals. We really appreciated the welcome pack of bread, milk and cream tea.

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.
