A breathtaking retreat surrounded by Dorset’s rolling countryside, this property in West Burton provides the perfect getaway for couples looking for a romantic break together.

This property is a fantastic one-bedroom split-level barn conversion marrying traditional with modern at the end of a no-through lane in West Burton. Situated between the villages of Wool (1 mile) and Winfrith Newburgh (2 miles), this bright cottage has plenty of space for two and has access to the owner’s grounds that include a nursery and a large pond that attracts lots of wildlife. With a pub just 1 mile and the coast (including Durdle Door) just 5 miles away, this property is the perfect couples’ retreat.

Enter the cottage, which is one of four conversions, into a superb open-plan living space that features welcoming neutral colours and contemporary furnishings, as well as a quirky sculptured wall. Relax in front of the TV on the sofa after a long day of exploring, or cook up a storm in the kitchen that’s a few steps down at one end of the room; you’ll find everything you need for a romantic meal that you can enjoy at the table looking out onto the grounds. Head up the open-tread spiral staircase to the sculptured mezzanine gallery bedroom; relax in the comfy chairs with your morning coffee overlooking the living area – just mind your head in the low eaves. The splendid en-suite has a shower over the bath and pretty tiles. Outside, the garden’s pretty trees and shrubs make it a pleasure to sit out on the patio with an al fresco evening drink.

There are plenty of places nearby for romantic walks, including the grounds of Lulworth Castle (6 miles) and Athelhampton House and Gardens (11 miles). Lulworth Cove (5.5 miles) is a must-visit for the breathtaking scenery and blue seas, and the Blue Pool (9 miles) is worth a wander around to see its ever-changing colours. Although pets aren't welcome, there is a cattery/kennels just 50 yards away.

The cottage was in a perfect location within a central spot for most of the places to visit. Gail was a great host and guide. Her design of the cottage was unique.

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.
