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.

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.

We had a fantastic week at Hazelnut Cottage. Delighted by the books, games and overall homely feel of ther house. Extremely clean and well kitted out. We walked a lot from the house, but also a short drive to Swanage, Corfe Castle, beaches at Studland and the Tank Museum. A great family house. Would definitely recommend.

A lovely cottage in stunning location. Beautiful views across the valley - up to Corfe Castle and down to Swanage. Everything you would need in the house and a lovely little garden. V peaceful. Walks straight from the front door and v easy to get to gorgeous beaches. Our favourite is South Beach in studland bay.

Wasnt very clean on arrival, we needed to sanitise the remote controls, bathroom and childrens things. The banister was thick with dirt which should have been wiped down. There was rubbish left in the coal store by the fireplace and the utensils and pots and pans in the kitchen were not very good, making cooking difficult.

Well equipped and dog-friendly, though there is no immediate access to the garden from the back door. South-facing garden which was a nice feature on sunny days and plenty of footpaths close by to choose from for a walk.

Everything was as expected and absolutely ideal for our short break. The location is perfect with magnificent views and access to local towns, beaches and tourist spots. My only reason for not givRead moreing a five star rating for everything was that for a two night stay we felt the price was a little on the high side, otherwise everything was perfect.

This cottage suits all of our needs and we have stayed many times and will definitely return. Good for winter and summer. The unmade road is a bit of a hazard and wouldn't advise going down it if you are a bit precious with your car.

Nice enough stay if you are happy to accept all the quirks of this rural cottage. The scenery and walks suggest a tranquil stay but the romance of the place was lost as walls are paper thin and with families on either side it was quite noisy at times. Kitchen equipment is quite tired and needs replacing. While TV is provided the Freeview and internRead moreet works intermittently. The location was perfect to explore the local places of interest and enjoyed the views. However, overall, wouldnt stay again. 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.
