This picture-perfect thatched cottage is a unique idyll nestled in the heart of the Dorset countryside, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It would be perfect for a family holiday with kids or a group of friends wanting to unwind in a cosy haven with beaches only a short drive away.

The living room would be an excellent place to gather with a drink upon arrival. A cosy three-seater sofa and armchair are tucked around a huge original fireplace that has now been converted to a lovely toasty log burner. With the red surrounding bricks still on display and the curved wooden beams above you'll feel like you've stepped into the past. It's everything a cottage should be. There's a TV if you fancy a movie night and the host has provided plenty of books and games to keep you entertained.

The fully renovated kitchen offers a large, modern and well equipped space within which to prepare some delicious meals which you can enjoy in the dining room at a pretty antique table by another wonderful wood-burner. It's an absolute delight. The kitchen also has a small seating area for morning coffees with south facing views of the garden and the walls are adorned with local art.

There are three equally cosy bedrooms, one super-king, one double or twin and the third a double. All of the beds are very comfortable and made up with 600 thread count linens to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. You'll find each one decorated in its own style with wonderful print fabrics, cushions, rugs and art.

After a good night's rest you can enjoy a soak in the roll-top bath from which you have a pretty view out of the window, or blast yourself awake beneath the large walk-in rain shower and take advantage of the complimentary local toiletries and soaps.

Once you've found the Nespresso machine you might like to take your coffee out to the garden. It's fine if you're still in your Pj's, it's utterly private and secluded and the only eyes on you will be the resident hedgehogs (and the gardener on Friday!). The garden is large with several nice alfresco dining areas, an abundance of figs and raspberries when in season and is a walled sun trap.

You're spoiled with any number of walks from the doorstep, and only a short drive from the Jurassic Coast where you can take in the sea air. Explore nearby Beaminster and Bridport and if you fancy a swim head to Eype Beach, an easy drive away through stunning countryside. For groceries visit Rise Market & Bakery where you can buy some wonderful local goodies and if you want to dine out you might like to try Soulshine cafe for breakfast, Three Horseshoes Inn for fine pub fayre and Rise or Brassica for something a bit more fancy.

    Ramble through ancient woods on the miles of the Jubilee Trail that crosses at the top of the country lane, then come home to lie on the suntrap deck and slide into the lake whenever you get too hot. The only visitors to this secluded spot, hidden in the depths of Dorset countryside, are a huge array of bird life, maybe deer, wild boar and if you're super lucky, visiting otters. Mix up the walks in Hooke Woods and even a visit to the Hooke Park Architecture Centre, with trips to market towns and the cliffs and coves of the Jurassic coast, with beaches at Eype and Seatown overlooked by great pubs. The chance to stay in the middle of a Site of Scientific Interest is rare, but after over 20 years living on the site in a caravan, Sid was granted permission to build this fabulous forest retreat. He did so with a considerate balancing of the comfort of nature and that of humans. The off-grid space draws its water from the lake with solar power and gas taking care of lighting, cooking and water heating. Any sense that this is “roughing it” is dispelled by the smart, understated style of the interior and the swish kitchen space, an aspiring chef’s dream. All this looking out upon the tranquility of the lake and the sea of greenery on your doorstep.
