This cleverly designed cosy barn conversion has all you could need for a relaxing break and is perfectly located within the heart of the village of Broadmayne, just off the bustling through road.

Located within easy reach of one of the UK’s most iconic stretches of coastline, this gorgeous hideaway simply begs for salty-aired adventures. Ideally sized for romantic escapes or solo breaks, its peaceful position next door to the owner’s home in the village of Broadmayne and its 4-mile journey to the sea create a winning combination. Pack your bags and leave the daily grind behind you; a holiday here is all about unadulterated fun for the days you feel like exploring and unrivalled relaxation for the days you don’t!

A cute and compact two-bedroom cottage, this impeccably designed, detached barn conversion will immediately make you feel at home. Head in through the private gated entrance and cast your gaze across the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Bathed in light thanks to the giant bi-fold doors that run the width of the room, this light-filled space is in equal parts stylish and cosy. On winter days, the lounge area’s comfortable seating beckons to take the weight off, whilst summer is all about throwing open the doors and kicking back in the enclosed garden. Of course, great adventures call for hearty repasts, which is where the kitchen comes in. Well-equipped with plenty of amenities and worktop space, you can rustle up delicious meals before retiring for the night, totally content.

If you know anything Dorset, you will be aware of the huge amount of attractions the county has to offer. Fortunately, you are perfectly placed at this picture-perfect retreat for exploring, with some of the most famous sites and sights in easy reach. For natural beauty, the world-famous Durdle Door (8.5 miles), Lulworth Cove (9.5 miles) and Chesil Beach (11 miles) are absolute must-visits. Meanwhile, the seaside town of Weymouth (7 miles) is home to a huge number of attractions, as well as fantastic pubs and eateries.

Lovely little cottage, ideal for couples for a nice break away. Hamper on arrival was a lovely surprise. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Only small downside is being next to a busy road with traffic going through all the time. Also not ideal for extremely tall people. But overall a lovely place to stay and in an ideal location.

We spent a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday at The Snug. The friendly welcome and very thoughtful welcome pack were very much appreciated. The cottage is perfectly located for exploring the beautiful coastal paths and beaches from Lulworth Cove to Weymouth Harbour and Portland Bill. Visitors should be aware that the road through Broadmayne is buRead moresy so there is a fair amount of traffic noise. However, all in all a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. Hide

Beautiful, well equipped cottage which is aptly named as it is small. It is well placed to visit many beautiful and interesting tourist spots in the county. The welcome pack and other useful supplies were much appreciated. The owners were helpful but not intrusive , and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the snug.

Cosy cottage for two with easy access to places of interest, beaches and shopping plus lots of excellent eateries within a 20 minute drive; Bennet's fish & chips on the village hall car park on Wednesday a must!

A cosy and comfortable cottage. The owners were very friendly and helped us with places of interest to visit. The welcome hamper and little extras were thoughtful and useful after a long journey. There were lots of places to see and two pubs within walking distance. We would definitely come again.

The perfect place to recharge our batteries. Good access to coastal towns and amenities as well as quieter spots and good walks. The Snug is equipped with everything we could possibly have needed and more. Hosts were welcoming and available but left us in complete privacy. We will definitely be back.

It was a proper home from home with everything we needed. Location wise its great if you have a car as its well placed to access Weymouth and other resorts.

Loved the cottage. Very well equipped. Owners on hand if any issues or information about the local area required. We arent tall, but feel tall people would struggle with the upstairs headroom. Hadnt realised the road would be so busy and noisy. That said, we had a brilliant week and would most definitely return.

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.
