This large cottage in a quiet Dorset village is an ideal place for families to spend quality time together and enjoy discovering the many delights that the countyside has to offer.

This semi-detached cottage, sleeping up to eight, is situated on a peaceful lane in the quiet village of Uploders. With views from the garden over extensive rolling countryside, there’s plenty of opportunities for dog-walking plus a pub within 100 metres, making this property perfect for get-togethers with family and friends.

After walking the dog, leave your coat and boots in the hall and step into the open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge with a beautiful tiled floor. Curl up here with a good book or a box set while the dog naps in front of the wood burner on cooler evenings. A set of French doors leads out into the garden. There is another smaller lounge, so everyone can have their own space, while the utility room with WC is handy for large groups. On the first floor, there are four good-size bedrooms: two double bedrooms with en-suite facilities, a twin and a bunk room. There is also a family bathroom on the first floor. Step outside to fully appreciate the countryside views from the large rear garden, split into a number of levels. Alternatively relax after a hard day sight seeing in the 7 seater hot tub.  (Please note this needs to be requested at the point of booking). Parking for the property is on the village lane.

Located 3 miles from the property is the beautiful town of Bridport where you can browse the twice-weekly market and pick up local produce, arts and crafts, antiques or other bargains. For those with a creative flair, South Street is the hub of the artistic community and you can visit the town museum and the Bridport Arts Centre (which also holds its own farmers’ market). The beach at Burton Bradstock, and the stunning South West Coast Path, is just 4.5 miles away.

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

Location

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.

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.
