Enjoy views of stunning Corfe Castle from the comfort of your gorgeous cottage, nestled in the picturesque village of Langton Matravers.

Located just a short walk from the village centre at Langton Matravers, this terraced cottage enjoys spectacular views to Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills beyond. Inside, homely rooms are finished in traditional decor with charming exposed stone and feature fireplaces. Ideal for keen walkers, spend a day exploring the surrounding countryside or head to the dramatic Jurassic coast (1.5 miles) before returning to the village for a bite to eat at the local pub or a summer picnic in your south-facing walled garden.

Stepping inside, a welcoming lounge with a feature stone wall and an open fire is a cosy space for hunkering down on a winter’s evening, with a Smart TV and shelves stocked with books and games. The modern kitchen contains everything you should need plus a small breakfast table for light meals, while the dining room next door is furnished with a large antique table and piano for a spot of after-dinner entertainment. Outside, the small south-facing rear garden is bordered by colourful beds and trees, the perfect place to while away a peaceful afternoon with a good book. There is parking for two cars.

Popular among walkers, the village of Langton Matravers sits within Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just 1.5 miles from the coast. Set out on foot from the cottage and head south to join the coast at Dancing Ledge (1.5 miles) where you might be lucky enough to spot puffins, bats and even dolphins before heading back inland towards Herston for a restorative pub lunch. Or continue to the picturesque coastal resort of Swanage (3 miles) for a refreshing dip in its crystal-clear water or a tasty ice cream on the promenade.

Peaceful location with lovely views. Spoilt for choice with so many walks from the doorstep - we appreciated the easy access to the coastal paths. The cottage was very comfortable and homely - open fire was welcomed on a cold day and plenty of coal and logs provided. The village pub was full of character and provided a warm welcome - very child anRead mored dog friendly too. Simple but plentiful and tasty food and a great selection of real ales snd ciders. All in all a great property in a fantastic location. Hide

Reviewed by Mrs J Withey 31st August 2018

It is a real homely cottage which we feel very comfortable in. Everything we needed was there and was thankful the garden fence had been mended to make it secure for the dog.

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.
