Wareham has much to offer. Set beside the River Frome and surrounded by old walls, you can spend your days on the water or simply enjoy the café culture on offer. There is easy access to the ever-popular Jurassic Coast and its many great attractions. The traditional town of Swanage (9 miles) has a popular sandy beach and a great selection of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants; Corfe Castle (4.5 miles) is home to castle ruins cared for by the National Trust; and Monkey World, The Tank Museum and RSPB Arne are all withing 7 miles. On the coast, Studland (9.5 miles), Lulworth Cove, and Durdle Door are all worth a visit and are within 10 miles. Walkers can easily access Wareham Forest, Ballard Down, and Durlston Country Park (all within 11 miles).

Accessed via a shared entrance door and two flights of stairs, you will find this spacious apartment on the second floor. Once inside this bolthole for two, you are met with a compact hallway with the bathroom to your right. The hallway opens into a fantastic open-plan living space, which has been cleverly divided to create a multi-functional room. The kitchen area is to the right with space to dine just opposite, and the lounge area has comfortable seating and a TV with a DVD player to catch up on a favourite film. Completing the accommodation is an inviting king-size bedroom. Due to the apartment’s setting within the eaves, there are some areas of restricted head height throughout, which only adds to its charm.

A door leads from the living space to a fantastic, enclosed roof terrace, with a bistro set and views over the rooftops. This is the ideal space to enjoy your morning coffee or perhaps a sundowner.

  • 1 king-size bedroom
  • 1 bathroom with shower over the bath and WC
  • Electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer
  • TV and DVD in the lounge

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.
