Set within an idyllic garden overlooking a stream and pastureland, this couple's bolthole is perfect for touring, contemporary kitchen and a dog-friendly garden.

Set your sights on this attractive cottage for two on the outskirts of Crewkerne for your Dorset escape, enjoying the wealth of walking opportunities nearby. The coast is within 14 miles and the exciting foodie town of Axminster is also within 14 miles. After a day of exploring, return to bask in the last of the sunshine in your private country-cottage garden listening to the sounds of the stream and birdsong.

Nestled in a quiet position next to the owner’s property yet guaranteed privacy, you’ll discover your charming abode down a short flight of external steps. Inside is chic, cosy and welcoming, inviting you to kick off your walking boots and snuggle up in front of the TV with your favourite films. Rustle up a delicious meal in the kitchen and dine together at the bijou table, and at bedtime, the stylish bedroom is a delight. Completing the property is a generous bathroom, and there is off-road parking for two cars. Outside, the pretty garden has a stream trickling alongside making it a peaceful location to sit with your morning coffee.

Hop in the car and head to the Jurassic Coast, hunting for fossils at Charmouth (14.5 miles) or wandering along the beautiful shoreline of West Bay (14 miles). Lyme Regis, 15 miles away, has lots to offer with its beautiful pebble beach, a staggering array of eateries and lots of amusements including a popular dinosaur and fossil museum. Alternatively, Fleet Air Arm Museum and Haynes Motor Museum are good days out within 19.5 miles. Crewkerne itself is 2 miles away and is an interesting market town to peruse with its choice of independent shops and eateries.

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.
