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.

Cottage was full of character. Proximity to bus stop and excellent bus service were a real bonus. The location is high and exposed, but stayed warm and cozy - even in the teeth of 45mph gales!

The cottage was smaller than the photos implied and not suitable for 4 adults. Very clean and with comfortable beds. Agood location with lovely country and coastal walks and easy access to many interesting places. Very friendly and informative neighbours and Mary the housekeeper was very helpful.

Great location for walks. Stunning coastline. Cottage only big enough for two. Kitchen well equipped but lounge seating poor. Nearest pub 1 mile across field. Nearest supermarket in Swanage

The cottage was set in an idyllic location, nestled in National Trust land with beautiful views across the fields. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the garden and sitting in front of the fire in the evenings. We were happy to be able to leave the car to go on walks straight from the cottage over to the coast and brilliant local pubs.Read more The cottage itself was very nicely presented, it was comfy, clean and I would recommend it highly!

I loved our stay in this beautifully appointed and located cottage. It was particularly magical early morning and at dusk. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with all the necessary user manuals. Initially we had a minor problem with the lock but help arrived extremely quickly. Thank you Mary.

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

Paperwork contains keysafe code, but no location, caretaker not informed of time of arrival. Note of key location & message to call caretaker with approx time of arrival would help.

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

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

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.
