A former post office, this characterful building has been lovingly updated to provide all the conveniences of modern living and is set in a fantastic central position within the village of Symondsbury

With miles of countryside and coastline to explore, this part of Dorset will set tails wagging in no time. This delightful three-bedroom detached cottage in the charming village of Symondsbury welcomes two canine companions, who can lead the way on walks straight from your doorstep. Your downtime is taken care of too, with an outdoor trampoline for the younger members of the family and a games room with table tennis for anyone who fancies a friendly tournament.

Accessed via a paved path, the main entrance to the property is at the back, and the utility room provides a handy space to dump muddy boots and throw toys. The country-style kitchen has all the equipment you need to create a culinary masterpiece to share beside the wood burner for cosy nights in enjoying each other’s company. Upstairs, you’ll find two spacious super king-size bedrooms, plus a cosy single. Don’t forget to pack your dogs’ favourite blankets so they feel settled too. Outside, a pretty garden wraps around the property, giving you ample space to dine alfresco or teach an old dog new tricks on the lawn.

Within 2 miles of the cottage is the market town of Bridport, which has an eclectic selection of shops and dog-friendly pubs should you wish to eat out. It’s also the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. West Bay, famous as the location for ITV drama Broadchurch, is 3.5 miles away and a lovely place to go for a stroll around the harbour and esplanade. Nearby Eype Beach (2 miles) is a secluded spot to exercise your canine chums whatever time of year you’re visiting. Another dog-friendly attraction is Forde Abbey (10.5 miles), which boasts award-winning gardens and the highest-powered fountain in England.
