Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Dorset’s Isle of Purbeck, with a stay at this three-bedroom holiday home beside a working farm in the pretty village of Worth Matravers.

Lovely accommodation with fantastic views, though had to wait for the mist to burn off a couple of times. Easy access to Swanage and Wareham. Very well appointed kitchen and bathrooms. Just beware for anyone who isnt steady on their feet that the bathroom tiles have a matt finish so stick-on hand rails dont grip.
