A spacious open-plan studio in a pretty village setting, not far from the beach at Lyme Regis and all of the amenities the surrounding area has to offer. The perfect spot for a romantic break.

Situated in a quiet village setting, this private and secluded apartment lies beneath the owner’s Georgian style house and is within walking distance to both coast and country. Spacious and contemporary in design, this is the perfect getaway for couples looking to escape to a romantic retreat. Enjoy a glass of wine on a summer’s evening sat on the terrace, overlooking the pretty village green. Or take a stroll together along the river to Lyme Regis for a bite to eat in one of the friendly local pubs and restaurants available.

This open-plan style studio apartment has a warm and cosy atmosphere where personal touches and modern-day furnishings make you feel right at home. The large living area is fresh and bright, filled with light from French doors that lead outside to an undercover terrace. Enjoy your morning coffee reading the paper in the separate conservatory, with the summer sunshine on your face, soaking up the glorious views over the surrounding countryside. Prepare a romantic dinner for two in the rustic handmade kitchen and dine alfresco whilst the sun sets on yet another perfect day.

Lyme Regis (2 miles) is a popular seaside town situated on the beautiful Jurassic Coast, boasting an array of activities to try and attractions to visit. Still an active fishing port, you can take a boat trip from its world famous Cobb harbour, to explore this spectacular coastline. Stroll around its chocolate box streets where you will find a good selection of shops, galleries, cafes, museums, theatres, pubs, restaurants and an Art Deco-style Cinema. The pretty coastal village of Charmouth (5.5 miles) is world famous for its beach, home to a diverse and eclectic collection of fossils and is definitely worth the visit.

We loved our stay at Wandas. The location and the setting were just what we had hoped for. A perfect property to come back to at the end of a busy day. It was great having so much space both inside and out and the sound of a village cricket match at the end of our first day from our terrace was delightful. (We later went to watch the match!)

Lovely outlook over open fields. The open plan layout was well thought out with two different seating areas. Tiled floor excellent when you have a wet & muddy dog with you!

We really enjoyed our weeks stay at Wandas and so did our 2 dogs. The apartment was so lovely & comfortable & we settled in straight away. It had everything we needed & little touches like fresh flowers. It was just a short drive into Lyme and less than 5 minute walk to Talbot Arms pub (they do a very nice carvery on a Wednesday eve). A thoroughly Read morerelaxing break. The only thing I would advise is that it is below their house so there is some occasional noise but it didnt bother us at all. Hide

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.
