Hidden away in the grounds of a Grade II Listed former rectory, this picture-perfect cottage is a delightful Dorset escape. From the moment you pull into the driveway you will love the peaceful surroundings you find yourself in.

Inside, the cottage is cosy and welcoming with all of the mod-cons you could wish for. The sitting-room has a gorgeous sofa for curling up on and out-of-season you can enjoy the benefit of the wood-burner. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms that both have lovely distant views across open countryside.

Heading outside, the gardens are an absolute delight and you will be spoilt for choice of somewhere to sit and enjoy a glass of something chilled. Your private lawned area adjacent to the cottage has spectacular views across the Bride Valley. A short stroll away there is a secret copse with a gorgeous Gothic folly that even boasts a wood-burner - what a great place to curl up with a book and hide away!

This stretch of the Jurassic Coast is the only natural World Heritage Site in England, ranked alongside no less than the Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon. You are sure to fall in love with the incredible views, abundance of history and charming atmosphere of this special place. Heading out from the village of Puncknowle (pronounced Punnel by locals), be sure to take a leisurely drive along the coast road that meanders all the way from Weymouth to Bridport. Be sure to pack your camera, as there are some outstanding vistas along the way. For a pit-stop, head to Hive Beach Cafe, the beachside restaurant serving exceptional local seafood or if you would prefer a cosy pub then take your pick from the many chocolate box villages that line the coast road.

A short drive away is the town of Bridport, a vibrant place that still has two markets a week, as well as a vintage quarter that is certainly worth visiting. If you're feeling energetic then climb up to the top of Colmer's Hill in nearby Symondsbury - we promise the view is worth it! If you are not looking to venture too far from Rectory Cottage then there are some fantastic walks right from the doorstep and you can treat yourself afterwards in the village pub, The Crown Inn.
