Set in an enviable location in the rural Dorset hamlet of Acton, this characterful property makes an ideal base for family holidays exploring all that the coast and countryside has to offer

This 19th century Purbeck stone cottage makes a wonderful base for exploring the Purbeck Hills. Set in a charming Dorset hamlet accessed via an unmade road, this cosy and welcoming retreat offers relaxing accommodation for eight guests. An ideal holiday home for a large family or a group of friends, the property enjoys fantastic panoramic countryside views.

The light and refreshing lounge is a lovely space to relax in at the end of the day, with a wood burner and TV/DVD so you can snuggle up and watch a favourite movie. A step leads up into the elegant dining room which is a perfect spot for a family meal which you can prepare in the stylish kitchen. There's also a snug with TV for anyone needing to get away from the crowd. A steep staircase leads to the first floor which features a bright twin room and an inviting double bedroom.

The generous garden is enclosed by a low stone wall (care should be taken with children and pets) and features a large lawn with mature shrubs and outdoor furniture so you can sit back and admire the stunning views.
