For walks on the doorstep, Purbeck House literally backs on to Worget Heath which offers stunning forest walks.

There are plenty of living spaces in which to gather.

Leading from the dining room is a sitting room with armchairs nestled around a roaring open fire, perfect for post-meal drinks or quiet moments. With sleek wooden floors, wood panelled wall and huge room-length window, this is a laid back, cosy room.

This in turn leads onto a fantastic bar room, with more than a nod to '70's chic glamour - the perfect spot to perch on a stool, drinking martinis, or head behind the bar to whip up a cocktail or two.

This room leads on to the main large living room complete with large velvet sofa, armchairs, a swinging chairs and a Smart TV to catch up on boxsets and films. With views over the garden, glass doors lead out on to the grass and can be left open on warm days to let the gorgeous country air flow through - bliss!

Take the hallway to the other side of the house and a large cinema/playroom awaits, complete with full size air hockey table, perfect for young ones complete with en suite bathroom. Beyond this room is a day bedroom complete with four bunk beds and a day bed - the ultimate chill out room!


The kitchen and dining area is open plan, making it the perfect space for informal entertaining and mealtimes.

The sleek, modern kitchen has beautiful marble worktops, white cabinets, and a concrete island that house everything you'll need for creating feasts for your loved ones, such as an electric oven, induction hob, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, Berkey water filter, Nutribullet, coffee machine and all the other essentials.

In addition, there's a separate utility room at the far end of the house which houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The dining room lies next to the kitchen and has wonderful views over the garden from the huge window that stretches across the width of the room. With wooden floors and a dining table for ten (with additional folding chairs for two), it's a wonderful space for dinner parties and celebratory meals.

Set in the gorgeous countryside of Dorset close to Wareham, there's plenty to see and do during your stay. Known as the gateway to Purbeck, Wareham is a pretty market town from which you can catch the ferry across to Poole and Brownsea Island or explore the independent shops and eateries. Head along the coast to Studland and its amazing beaches and nature reserve, visiting the mysterious and abandoned Tyneham village, historic Corfe Castle and the famous steam railway and beaches of Swanage on the way. Head west and the World Heritage site of the Jurassic coast is just a short drive away as is the iconic Durdle Door, pretty Lulworth Cove and Man O'War beach. The South West Coastal Path is a must for walkers, whilst 17th century Lulworth Castle, today home to re-enactments and the famous Camp Bestival (a family-friendly music festival held every July) is well worth a visit too.
