Britain's ultimate surf and turf, home: Converted fishing cottages set in 400 acres on Dorset's Jura

A house that could be Britain's most perfect property as it enjoys the best of both country and seaside living has gone up for sale for 3million.

Located in the middle of nowhere and surrounded on three sides by rolling green fields, Long House in Dorset looks like the ideal country retreat.

But a turn to the south reveals the five bed home also boasts some of the finest seaside views in the country as it is perched on the edge of Britain's Jurassic Coast World Heritage site.

Being so close to the sea, Long House used to be three fishermen's cottages before being converted into a single house in 1965

There is planning permission in place to have the main house turned into an eight bedroom residence and approval for a new 43ft by 15ft 'Eco Energy Centre' timber barn with a solar panelled roof and ground source heat pumps.


Being so close to the sea, Long House used to be three fishermen's cottages before being converted into a single house in 1965.James McKillop, from Knight Frank, said: 'At the moment you've got a very beautifully-positioned but rather dated house.'It was formerly three fishermen's cottages that have all been knocked into one five-bedroom house.

'It's all really about the position. The house has the most incredible views. You're surrounded by something like 400 acres of National Trust farmland in an area of outstanding natural beauty and you're not going to find anything else springing up nearby.

The couple who own the house are deciding to sell up after their children moved away, and are now looking for something smaller and easier to manage

'It's an overwhelmingly special spot, and the difficulty in those positions is always planning, quite rightly so. You've got peace and seclusion without being completely isolated.'


The couple who own the house are deciding to sell up after their children moved away, and are now looking for something smaller and easier to manage.

'We get a lot of beachside places in Devon and Cornwall, which are highly sought after, but finding something like this is Dorset is very special,' added Mr McKillop.

'For a buyer this is a piece of paradise and an opportunity to create something bespoke in a fantastic setting.'
The house is on the market with Knight Frank for offers in excess of 3million.
