Dating back to the early 17th Century, this picture perfect, Grade II Listed thatched cottage sits in the heart of a rural Dorset village. Recently renovated by the owners, St Peter's Cottage is a gorgeous retreat with space for all the family.

Step into the sitting-room and be met with a wonderful inglenook fireplace with wood-burner. The Smart TV, cleverly installed on an extendable bracket, is perfect for those snug film nights with the family. Having dual-aspect windows means the sitting-room is lovely and light, with pretty views over the rear garden.

There are three steps up into the kitchen/dining-room, which is a wonderful open plan space ideal for spending time in together. The modern fittings, complete with wine fridge, add a real touch of luxury and you are sure to want for nothing more when cooking up your holiday feasts. Just off the kitchen/dining-room is a sunny garden-room, with direct access outside; this space is excellent for children to play in or you can make use of the stylish desk, for those times when you may need a quiet space to check emails. The ground floor accommodation is complete with a handy, modern shower-room.

Heading upstairs the traditional character of this semi-detached cottage continues. There are three wonderful bedrooms and each of them has been furnished and styled to the highest standard; sumptuous mattresses, beautifully soft linen and tasteful colour schemes mean you are sure to totally relax and switch off for a good night's sleep. The family bathroom is conveniently located adjacent to the bedrooms.

Outside, the south-facing, enclosed garden is a real sun-trap, which you and your four-legged friend are sure to love. Take a moment to sit and relax on the patio with a drink in hand, as the sun's balmy rays keep you warm. From the garden, there are delightful views of The Church of St Peter and St Paul that boasts the highest church tower in Dorset and has bells that chime on the hour, every hour. A path through the garden leads to a gate on to the driveway, so you have easy access to your cars.

Cattistock is a traditional country village in the middle of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, meaning it is wonderfully unspoilt. The local village store has a fantastic reputation and is a great spot to either pick up local produce, utilise the Post Office or linger a little longer and enjoy what delights the tearoom has to offer. There are a number of excellent walking routes directly from the cottage, so be sure to pack your walking boots and head out on an adventure. Children can enjoy the village playground, only two minutes' walk from the cottage.

Given the village is so centrally located within the county, using St Peter's Cottage as a base to explore this special area is a great choice. The World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast is a short car journey away - crashing waves, golden cliffs and spectacular vistas await you. Be sure to head for one of the local beachside eateries if you are a fan of fresh seafood. The county town of Dorchester is less than 10 miles away and you can lose yourself in the history of this once Roman settlement. Sherborne is also close by and still has two weekly markets, offering a treasure trove of produce and artisan gifts to buy.
