Property code: DC098

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.

This cottage caters for all our specific needs, a shower which is not over the bath as we are not as spry these days, a comfortable bed and chairs, a well equipped kitchen, on site parking and a garden to sit in. The enclosed garden was important when we had a dog.

Anne and David were perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Little Mayflower was well equipped and we were very happy there. Convenient position for lots of local attraction and walks. Safe parking was a bonus too . We also had a nice welcome from Bertie the dog most days.

Excellent comfortable property for two located close to Swanage and within easy reach of a broad range of attractions. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful, with advice about places to visit and to eat. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Isle of Purbeck and surrounding areas of Dorset.

This cottage is lovely. It has been equipped well and the owners are always on hand if you need anything. Situated well for getting into Swanage with about a 1.5 mile walk but also good to get out and about to other areas.

Small, comfortable cottage attached to owners propert. Easy to find and only a couple of minutes from Swanage beach area. Ideal for a couple . Had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The owner was very nice and friendly and all though we never needed to ask, Im sure she would be more than helpful if anything needed doing.
