Once dinner is ready, pop open a bottle of fizz to toast to a wonderful holiday to Dorset before relishing in some quality time with your loved ones.

After an action-packed day, look forward to relaxing into your evening, by reclining on the L-shape sofa and flicking on the Smart TV with Netflix for you to browse.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, make your way upstairs to find three elegantly-presented bedrooms, where all three enjoy a bright colour palette and good storage space.

The master bedroom boasts a characterful blend of an exposed stone and brick wall, a feature fireplace and a plush king-size bed, whilst the additional bedrooms comprise of another double bed with its own TV and a single bed, which comes with an inflatable bed, for any additional guests that you may be bringing.
