A charming 18th-century cottage 3.5 miles from the sea, ideal for groups of friends or families looking to celebrate a special occasion or share a dream getaway.

For two and four-legged explorers alike, the surrounding landscapes are a bountiful treasure trove of walks and trails. Stay inland to uncover Dorset’s patchwork of fields and head to the coast to trace rugged cliffs and pebble beaches. Only 3.5 miles from Durdle Door and 4 miles from Lulworth Cove, two of the country’s most iconic natural landmarks are only a short drive away. For a spot of lunch or evening meal, the local pub is 1 mile down the road.

Located on a quiet no-through road, you’ll approach the front door of the property from the lane. Step through the porchway and head into the dining room. A spacious room marrying period features with contemporary nuances, the dining room features a family-sized table in the centre of the room. From here, a short corridor splinters off into separate rooms. On the left, you’ll find a small downstairs WC whilst ahead is the kitchen and on the right is the lounge. With pretty details and comfortable furnishings, the lounge is a relaxing space. Large patio doors lead out onto the garden, so you can throw open the doors in summer to let the sunshine in, or hunker down in winter whilst the wood burner pumps out heat. Home to plenty of seating, a TV and an iPod dock, the whole family can gather around to catch up or play a game. In the kitchen, a perfect family space awaits. A generously-sized room fully equipped with a fridge/freezer, an oven and a hob, a dishwasher, a microwave, a kettle and more, you can rustle up a home-made feast and keep the gang topped up with plenty of delicious treats. Adjoining the kitchen is an attractive conservatory which enjoys views of the garden and has patio doors leading outside. Venturing upstairs, you’ll find three bedrooms as well as a cot for your little one. There is ample space for everyone; one bedroom has a super king-size bed that can be made into a twin, another has a double and the final room has a pull-out twin (2' 6"" beds - one stored below the other). Also upstairs is the family bathroom; separated into two rooms, the first has a bath with electric shower overhead, while the other has a WC.

Outside, a terrace with table and chairs is the perfect spot to spend sunny afternoons while the kids and dogs play on the lawn. To the side of the property, there is parking for 2 cars (1 small).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Old Bakehouse was tastefully furnished, comfortable and located in a pretty village which had a village shop and a pub within walking distance. If you are a keen walker there are plenty of stunning walks in the area and it made a good choice for a group of six people, who were all keen to walk. The main bedroom was very comfortable, spaciousRead more and had plenty of cupboard space for clothes etc. The other bedrooms are smaller but still comfortable and were adequate for our group. There is a lovely conservatory to sit in and a well-maintained garden. The kitchen is a galley style, compact space but we managed by having a rota so that there were never more than two people in the kitchen at any one time. We were generously supplied with everything we needed in the way of toilet paper, liquid soap, dishwashing liquid, sponges, dishwasher tablets etc. I would be happy to recommend this cottage to anyone who is thinking of visiting Dorset.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful peaceful setting. Very comfortable and had everything we needed, particularly with a toddler. The garden was wonderful and full of spring flowers. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend to others.

Lovely cottage could be better with a bigger fridge/freezer

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.
