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.

This property is situated in a quiet countryside location on Dorset’s Isle of Purbeck, within a few miles of the coast at Swanage to the east and Dancing Ledge to the south. Each of these offer very different seaside experiences, with Swanage boasting a wide sandy beach next to which visitors will find a swathe of cafes, kiosks, beach shops, and deckchair hire. Dancing Ledge, meanwhile, is part of the breathtaking rugged coastline of the Jurassic Coast, famed for its fossil-rich beaches, this whole area is renowned for its breath-taking walks with magnificent seascapes. To the north of the village, Corfe Castle is a popular day trip, as are Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World.

The front door of this 18th century cottage opens directly into the charming lounge, a wonderfully cosy room with a comfortable sofa, a window seat, an open fire, and a Netflix-enabled TV. Next to the lounge, the kitchen/diner has been thoughtfully updated in a contemporary style and features bi-fold doors which allow guests to extend the space out into the garden. Everything is provided to allow guests to make all their favourite meals, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. A hallway leads to the bunk bedroom, a restful room with a beamed ceiling and cottage-style window, across the hall from which the chic and stylish bathroom is fully-tiled and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. The staircase which leads to the first floor is an interesting and unusual feature which has been salvaged from a ship and has a rope handrail. Once upstairs, guests will find the remaining a bedroom: a pretty twin room which has a chest of drawers and wardrobe.

Outside, the property benefits from a pleasant garden to the rear of the property which comprises a terraced patio with garden furniture and a BBQ, as well as a lawn. There is off-road parking for one car to the side of the property.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A lovely cottage in a good quiet location, close to places of interest and walks. Suitable for 3 Adults and 1 young child for top of bunk bed, " not much headroom". Stair case needs care at the top as steps are high approx 11 inches and on the bend into the bedroom, as this is the only room upstairs. A really well fitted kitchen with quality fittedRead more equipment if one is to completely self cater. Hide

Lovely and well equipped cottage in super location for exploring the coast line and Dorset. Would suit two adults ( and two small children) - bit too snug for four adults

Reviewed by Annwyn 3rd August 2019

Cottage is much smaller than the photos show, my son and I were OK with this but my husband felt a little claustrophobic. But, clean and well equipped and beds were GLORIOUSLY comfy!! We spent little time in the cottage as it was a great base for exploring coast and country, so very ideally situated. We paid a LOT for a week during school holidays Read morebut feel the amount we paid for the size of cottage was too much. Hide

Very small. Recently refurbished. Good location for exploring Purbeck. Fine for 2 adults and 2 children but too small for 4 adults.

A very cosy & tastefully refurbished, sturdy, hilltop cottage in a quiet location, handy for all the local attractions and the historical market town of Wareham, where you'll find some excellent, independent eateries & pubs. RSPB 15 mins, Corfe Castle 10 mins. 2 lovely & unique traditional pubs within a 5-10 mins easy, drive. Twin Bedroom is upstaiRead morers, + Bunk-Bedroom/Bathroom downstairs. Small overall but cosy for the 2 of us on a long weekend. Hide

Great location for walks to and along the coast, to the characterful pub in Worth Matravers and to Corfe Castle if desired. We did not need to stray far in any direction to find lots of interesting things to do.

Well equipped cottage in a great location. Perfect for access to the South West Coast Path.

The cottage was excellent but smaller than the photos suggest. Other than that our stay was excellent.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
