Cleverly converted from a former farm building, this charming property boasts a wood burner, eco-credentials, veranda overlooking the paddock and easy access for touring this picturesque county.

Relax on the terrace with a cool drink at this romantic Dorset retreat for two. One of a collection of beautifully converted, barn-style homes in the village of Middlemarsh, known for its chalk Cerne Abbas Giant, it has one bedroom and enjoys picturesque country views. Approximately 6 miles from Sherborne, it makes a great base for exploring Dorset; those staying here can then return after busy days out and relax on the veranda.

Open the front door to this single-storey holiday home to find light-filled accommodation. The heart of the property is its beamed lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can prepare delicious dinners for two and relax together at the end of a long day. Switch on the Smart TV and light the wood burner to bring a cosy glow to the space; set the table inside on colder days or dine out on the terrace when the weather is fine. As night falls, head through to the inviting double bedroom. The shower room, with WC, is also off the hall. Throw open the double doors to let a spring or summer breeze into the open-plan living area or sit out on the covered veranda to take in the beautiful views over the fields. This property comes with off-road parking for two cars. A small stream runs under the veranda and there is a pond across the driveway in the owners’ garden which is bordered with post and rail fencing, please take care with children.  

Spend your afternoons in delightful Sherborne, known for its gorgeous architecture, as well as its castles and famous abbey. Browse in the enticing shops, boutiques and galleries here and in Dorchester, 11 miles away. Venture south for days out near the sea. Go for long walks along the Jurassic Coast or enjoy the seaside town appeal of Weymouth, also approximately 20 miles away, with its sandy beach.

The Hide suite of holiday accommodation was an ideal choice for our Staycation holiday/family reunion. They are beautifully appointed properties with a large covered veranda looking out onto a lush field where we watched roe deer graze and play on several mornings. Paul and Sophia were wonderful hosts - nearby, helpful and attentive when we needed Read morethem, but otherwise non-intrusive. Thoroughly recommended. Hide

Very well converted barn in the middle of three holiday let conversions. Immaculately clean and well thought out. Definitely need a car as local pub not worth the 8 minute walk. No garden area to sit in just covered decking area

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.
