Brimming with character both inside and out, this historic cottage is a cosy home-from-home from which to explore the stunning Dorset countryside and coastline.

Set on the end of a pretty terrace of similar properties, this cottage is located on the edge of the pretty parish of Bradpole in West Dorset. With the famous West Bay just three miles away, this is a fantastic base from which to explore the Jurassic Coast. Majestic sandstone cliffs and fossil-rich beaches make up this stunning 95-mile stretch of coastline, perfect for long walks with the family. The coast is dotted with lively seaside towns and villages, including Lyme Regis, Seaton and Charmouth, home to independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Closer to home, the bustling market town of Bridport boasts a rich rope-making heritage and a vibrant arts and culture scene.

A stable door opens into this charming property’s entrance hall, where there is space to leave coats and boots before continuing through to the lounge. With a beamed ceiling, wooden flooring, cosy rug and wood burner set into a brick fireplace, this is a homely room for relaxing after a long day by the sea. Watch a range of programmes on the Smart TV with BT Sport, challenge family members to a game on the Wii or simply sit back and listen to your favourite music using the iPod dock. The kitchen/diner beyond is a sunny space for cooking and entertaining. In the summer, allow light and air to stream through the patio door as you prepare delicious family meals in the traditional kitchen area before dining at the circular table nearby. Upstairs are two delightful bedrooms, one double with feature Victorian fireplace and one twin with original tongue-and-groove wall. Both bedrooms have been finished in fresh, light decor and share a bathroom with overhead shower.

Step outside from the kitchen to find a charming courtyard garden, perfect for enjoying a cup of morning coffee or glass of wine in the evenings. To the other side of a shared driveway/path is a large enclosed garden with trees, shrubs, flowerbeds, a BBQ and gravel seating area. There is also parking for two cars.

Would have rated as very good if that was a choice. A little short of excellent. In a good position for visiting local tourist sites and very clean and comfortable. Only issues we had was that its on a corner of a busy road and front door very near to the road. So we had to be very careful with the dog when leaving the property. The lounge could alRead moreso benefit from a coffee table. 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.
