A 17th-century former potter's studio, this coastal retreat is just the right size for solo holidays and romantic escapes, offering privacy, cosiness galore and excellent location.

Located part way down a quiet, no-through road in Burton Bradstock, this property offers many opportunities to enjoy the surrounding area. Encompassed by countryside and only 500 yards from the beach, you can walk to the seashore to spend hours or days in the sunshine. For a bite to eat, a cafe is accessible along the beach or a 0.5-mile drive by car. Elsewhere, a great local pub is only 350 yards away.

Cross the pretty, shared courtyard garden at the front of the property and step inside. Home to a cosy, open-plan design, the space has been transformed into a light and airy living area. With a well-equipped kitchen at one end, you can make use of the oven, electric hob, microwave and other appliances for meals at home. Store your fizz in the fridge and toast to an unforgettable holiday. Facing away from the kitchen, you will see the lounge/diner. With two snuggly armchairs, a dining table for two, a Smart TV and a selection of books and DVDs, you can spend lazy mornings and relaxed evenings with your feet up. Heading upstairs, the attractive double bedroom takes pride of place. Home to a double bed, the bedroom’s neutral tones and large windows create a bright, tranquil space. Adjoining the bedroom is an en-suite bathroom, fitted with WC, shower cubicle and heated towel rail for extra luxury.

Outside, the property’s front garden is peppered with pots and hugged by trees and shrubs. A shared space, you can sink into the outside seating and let the sounds of birdsong and the sun’s warmth wash over you.

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

The cottage ticked all the boxes so met all our needs for along weekend stay. We would stay there again as the area is excellent for walking and exploring.

The cottage is very compact but had pretty much everything we needed. The location was perfect, a few steps onto the coastal path and in a gorgeous village with a well stocked convenience store almost opposite and two pubs serving excellent food - we had to book in both to get a table even in early and mid week which demonstrates how popular they Read moreare. The linen and towels were clean and fresh. Comfort-wise I would say 3/5 ; overall cleanliness I would say 3/5 ( was very dusty); facilities 4/5 (no dishwasher or washing machine but we ate out almost every night anyway and didn't need to wash clothes). Overall, ideally located for the coastal walks and the very nearby beaches. Hide

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.
