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.
