A spacious family home ideal for groups, this cottage rewards guests with fantastic views and the chance to unplug and unwind surrounded by Dorset goodness.

The clifftop village of Worth Matravers is 1 mile from the coast and just west of Swanage (4 miles). It is a quintessentially, pretty Dorset village with a populated duckpond. Towards the centre is this detached, bright and family-friendly cottage with a big, sunny garden and glimpses of the sea.

Park on the gravelled, two-car driveway, then enter the property down seven steps to a paved area, with shrubs and a low dry stone wall. Go through the front door and into the hallway, hang up your coats, plonk your shoes, and explore! Kids can either run straight upstairs for a glimpse of the sea, or the bright and welcoming ground floor surrounds you on either side. The double-aspect lounge lies to your right, with comfy sofas facing a wood burner and a Smart TV, great for evening cosy-ups. French doors open onto a partly-enclosed, pretty garden with a secluded seating area. The double-aspect kitchen/diner also has French doors to the garden, plus another door that leads to the side of the cottage. Eat a hearty breakfast and plan your days around the large family-sized table, while the children chose a book to read or play happily in the garden. Under the stairs is a WC and utility area, whilst upstairs there are three lovely bedrooms. Two are doubles, with sea glimpses, and the third has fun, chunky bunk beds. Mind your heads on the low eaves, kids! The family bathroom has a separate bath and a walk-in shower, perfect for small people’s bath time, and big people’s relaxation.

The local pub is 200 yards from the cottage, and the nearest shop is just 2 miles away. With coastal walks on the doorstep and the Dorset Adventure Park only 4 miles away, this lovely cottage creates a fun family holiday.

This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in since first coming to Worth Matravers in 1984! Its perfectly situated in the heart of the village, with lovely sea views, and easy access to several coastal walks. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The large garden is a delight and a haven for birds.

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.
