A spacious stone cottage offering a peaceful retreat to the coast with distant sea glimpses. Well situated to explore the endless attractions and seaside towns of the beautiful southern coast.

A spacious, welcoming retreat, this property exudes comfort and is finished with lots of thoughtful, homely details. Just perfect for solo breaks or romantic getaways for two, it has one bedroom and bright, colourful themes throughout. Conveniently located between Langton Matravers and Herston, you don’t have to go far to stock up on goods or pop into the pub for an evening tipple either (shop and pub 700 yards). Put your feet up and unwind or head out and about to explore the locale.

Located in the wing of the owner’s property, this cosy cottage has its own entrance and is stylishly laid out all on one level. For chilled out mornings and early evenings, the property’s lounge has a sofa, TV and wood burner-effect electric fire. Cook up a feast in the kitchen, a cheerful, well-equipped room, and gather together around the dining table for meals at home. Featuring a bathroom with walk-in shower and a comfortable, light-filled double bedroom, you can start and end your days as kings and queens. For the sunnier months, there is an unenclosed terrace with outdoor seating, so you can enjoy alfresco treats whilst taking in distant views of the sea and the Isle of Wight.

Only 1.5 miles from Swanage, there are lots of things for you to see and do. Take long strolls along the seafront or take a seat along the pier and watch the world go by. A stunning stretch of coast, the Purbeck Heritage Coast is home to a number of coastal routes, rewarding walkers with gorgeous views. 4.5 miles away, a trip to the Old Harry Rocks is a must, as is Corfe Castle, only 4 miles away.

A great choice for those wishing to explore this part of Dorset. David and Ann, owners of the property, are right next door and are so welcoming. Bertie, their Labradoodle, instantly made friends with our Border Collie. For dog lovers, there are so many great dog-friendly walks if you base yourself here.

The owners are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. The cottage is perfectly situated for walking into Swanage and is also on the bus route.

The cottage was comfortable, had everything you needed. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful. This was a great location for a base in Dorset. Even a bus stop was in walking distance from the cottage, from which you could travel to Poole or Weymouth.

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.
