This detached stable conversion has been thoughtfully designed and no attention to detail has been forgotten making this a truly unforgettable retreat in stunning rural surroundings.

With fantastic, sociable spaces both inside and out, this home sleeps six guests across three bedrooms, the perfect destination for groups of family and friends. Escape to Dorset and explore AONBs and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site by day, before returning for al fresco dinners on the private terrace. With plenty of places to fish nearby, this abode makes a great bolthole for keen anglers.

Arrive at this dwelling and admire the beautifully verdant, valley views before stepping inside. Creating a welcoming hub of the home is the open-plan living space which sits beneath exposed beams, has a gorgeous chandelier and French doors to let natural light and fresh air flood inside. With underfloor heating throughout, leave boots and coats in the utility room and stay warm as you move around. Settle on the sofas in front of the TV for a relaxing afternoon, moving only to pop the kettle on and pick up treats from the impressive kitchen with Rangemaster electric oven and hob for cooking up delicious feasts. Plate up inside or out and enjoy communal meals together and sundowner tipples on the terrace. After adventurous days, the three pretty bedrooms will be a welcome sight; one resides on the ground floor whilst the remaining two can be reached by ascending to the first floor. All the bedrooms are treated to Smart TVs and en-suites so you can rise, shine and freshen up without having to queue. There is ample off-road parking.

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.
