Grade II listed cottage offering a delightful holiday retreat for guests, featuring period details alongside architect-designed contemporary fixtures, situated just 3.5 miles from the seaside town of Swanage.

Settle into this delightful stone cottage near Langton Matravers, on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula, in Dorset. Take in beautiful views out towards the Jurassic coast from the cosy retreat, which sleeps three guests in two bedrooms, and sits in a quiet, rural position. Walk 1.5 miles down to the South West Coast Path to pick up the long-distance footpath, to look for fossils or to swim from Dancing Ledge.

Enter the welcoming Grade II-listed cottage, which dates back to the 18th century and has flagstone floors, to find yourselves in a bright, inviting lounge. Relax on the soft seating in here, light the open fire and find a Netflix film on the TV. Enjoy preparing tasty meals in the kitchen/diner next door, where you can open the bi-folding doors on to the garden on sunny days or dine by the window. Find an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer here. Follow the hall to the pretty bunk bedroom and the family bathroom, which has a shower over the bath and WC. Follow the stairs, with their rope handrail, up to the first floor, where a delightful twin bedroom is situated. Relax in the lovely garden behind the cottage on warm days. Fire up the BBQ on balmy evenings and have supper in the fresh air. Find parking for one car at the cottage.

Head 3.5 miles into Swanage to spend time in the traditional seaside town and to bask on the sandy beach. Walk along the Victorian pier, buy fish and chips or browse in the shops. Plan a day trip to stunning Studland Bay, 4 miles away, which is known for its golden sands and rolling dunes. Visit Corfe Castle, with its historic ruins (4 miles), or famous Lulworth Cove, 15 miles from your base.

Would not recommend. The cottage is not as the description and in bad weather is dark and drab. Not suitable for very young children or older folk unless agile. Needs better lighting in sitting room as too dark for reading. Television doesnt work in bad weather. Requires more updating and refurbishment. It is very small and not welcoming. PositivelRead morey, it has good supply of hot water and good location. The tea and biscuits provided were lovely. Very disappointing property overall. Hide

Bathroom light switch very inefficient. Heat pump noisy on and off during the night., Plumber visited to mend the heat pump, water off so could not use the loo.

Our daughter is tall 59 so she hit her head on the low doorways 3 times before she got the hang of ducking her head. She really hurt her head and ended up in tears. So website should stress not suitable for people over 56. Apart from the height the cottage was small & quaint and situated in a good location not far from Swanage or Corfe Castle.

This cottage is not suitable for anybody over six foot. I banged my head many times. The kitchen is too small to seat and feed four people comfortably. The lounge is small and dark and the underfloor heating is patchy.

The patio furniture has been repaired many times. Noisy heat pump. Parking very dirty. Heavy traffic caused much dirt to car Hide

Being and old cottage access is not to current standards, how this was all clear in the description of the property and there were no surprises other than the fantastic views

Fantastic location and views, very handy for the bus to Corfe and Swanage if you want a break from driving but there are no local shops. Very clean and ok for two people but it would be very cramped for more than two and you wouldn't be able to sit down for a meal at the kitchen table. Unfortunately the seating is not very comfortable but the beds Read moreare fine. The doorways are low so mind your heads!! Hide

Super period cottage in a stunning location. Great location for walking or as a base for touring the Jurassic coastline. Good local pubs and less that 4 miles from Corfe Castle or Swanage. Well equipped cottage with helpful and friendly neighbours.
