If you were looking for cottages like Poorton House, how about trying these:

Poorton House is a quintessential country cottage, nestling in the glorious Dorset countryside in the hamlet of South Poorton. This classic cottage offers delightful, homely accommodation and a pretty cottage garden. You will fall in love with the charm of the interior, its rural location and the space you have to relax.

From the garden, steps lead down to the front porch - a new addition to the cottage where you can hang your coats and leave your boots after a walk in the surrounding area. Into the dining-room, the age and character of the property starts to shine with a large inglenook fireplace, wooden floors and an abundance of original woodwork. Step up into the modern country kitchen, which has all the modern conveniences you will need, whilst reflecting the essence of the cottage's history.

On the other side of the hallway is a useful utility space, with washing machine and tumble-drier and a door to the downstairs WC, tucked away under the stairs.

Through to the sitting-room, you are welcomed into another amazing space with flagstone floors and a stunning fireplace, with wood-burner. What a lovely place to sit and ponder the adventures of the day, whilst planning where else to explore.

The stairs take you from this room and up to the first floor (take care as the stairs are typical for their age - being steep and narrow). Each bedroom has views across to the garden and have been sympathetically designed to let the natural beauty of the cottage shine. The bathroom mixes luxury and charm.

There is lots of space to explore, including a sitting-area and lawned garden. From the garden the true beauty of the location can be appreciated.
