The ideal spot for a relaxing break in picturesque Dorset and within a short drive to the Jurassic Coast. A spacious converted barn with exposed stone work, wood burner, pretty terrace and good access to a wealth of nearby attractions.

Set in a leafy location on a working farm, this spacious barn conversion is a peaceful rural retreat in the picturesque Dorset countryside. Sleeping four, this stylish property boasts a large open-plan living space complete with a cosy wood burner for those chilly evenings. When you’re not dining alfresco on the pretty terrace, explore the beautiful surrounding countryside with its charming villages or enjoy a day out at the Jurassic Coast.

Sympathetically converted, this charming cottage retains plenty of original features from exposed beams to stone walls and high vaulted ceilings. Spend quality family time together in the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which opens onto the terrace through extensive patio doors. Cook up a storm in the delightful country-style kitchen before dining at the antique table and settling in for a cosy evening beside the roaring wood burner. Two charming bedrooms share a stylish Jack and Jill bathroom. Step outside from the living area onto a sunny terrace complete with furniture and a BBQ or dine on the shared raised deck beyond that looks out across grazing sheep and lambs.

Tucked away in the peaceful Dorset countryside, this rural retreat is surrounded by fields of cows and sheep. Set out on foot or bicycle to explore the surrounding countryside and villages, including Lewesdon Hill and Stoke Abbott (1.5 miles). Take to the coast to explore its quaint towns and villages, fossil-rich bays and wide windswept beaches, the likes of which include Lyme Regis (15 miles), Charmouth (12 miles) and West Bay (7.5 miles).

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.

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.
