Stunning single-level property cleverly designed for modern living set on a backdrop of beautiful countryside and benefiting from large indoor and outdoor space for all the family.

Located in the beautiful village of Worth Matravers, this property has wide reaching views of the local countryside and glimpses of the sea. Situated on a no-through lane, it is a quiet location; however, being on a path to the sea, it is ideally positioned as a base for exploration of the local area. The coast is only a mile away and the bustling centre of Swanage is 4 miles away. Worth Matravers itself is quaint with a stunning little church and duck pond with dazzling views of the local downs. If you happen to be here in autumn, check out the Pumpkin Festival held at the local pub, where you can see pumpkins as big as tables!

This stunning single-level home has an open plan layout which is designed to make the most of its surroundings. Bringing the outside space inside with tri-fold doors makes the large property feel even more spacious and airy. From the hall with storage for coats and boots, enter into the open plan room which houses the kitchen, dining area and sitting area. The kitchen area is equipped with double oven and hob, fridge, washing machine, microwave, freezer, drier and dishwasher and tastefully decorated with oak worktops, and a breakfast bar. The conservatory adds yet more light and space and is a wonderful place to sit and read a book. There are two double bedrooms, both en-suite, and two twin bedrooms with beautiful views and a separate bathroom with shower and WC. This is a very generously sized property encompassing all that is family holidays and family living.

The exterior of this property is stunning with the front garden being a combination of gated gravelled parking area and large sloping lawn garden with flowers, shrubs, trees, and even a trampoline. The rear multi-level garden has glimpses of the sea and it boasts a large decking area for seating and a summer house with a selection of children’s games.

Cottage itself was very nice. Good sized bedrooms, comfortable beds, well stocked. Nice kitchen. Lovely garden with patio area and lawned area for games. Games and books provided. Very quiet village but no pathways which was a concern with a buggy so just beware with young children.

Impressive, spacious, well maintained property (although the garden could do with a bit of a tidy up). Very well stocked with crockery, cutlery, linen etc. Overall, very satisfactory. Location isolated and very quiet.

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.
