  • A stunning holiday home with panoramic sea views with pool table, ping pong, log burner, stone fire pit, BBQ, swing set, croquet and trampoline
  • Located in a picturesque village with Purbeck stone cottages and a duckpond, just a short walk from one of the country’s best-loved pubs
  • Glorious coastal and country walks straight from the front door
Property code: DC142

With magnificent views of the sea and the beautiful Purbeck Hills, this light and spacious property features a large garden and a superbly equipped games room, making it a perfect holiday home.

From Worth Matravers, country paths lead to the Norman clifftop chapel at St Adhelm’s Head, horseshoe-shaped Chapman’s Pool and the old quarrying caves at Winspit. Other short walks take you to the rocky outcrops at Seacombe and Dancing Ledge (from which the brave can take a dip in the sea). There are longer distance hikes along the glorious South West Coast Path, just a mile away.

The heart of the house is a large, light-filled kitchen/dining room - a perfect space for enjoying a family meal. The ground floor also features a charming snug with a wood burner and a games room with table tennis and a proper pool table. Upstairs, the second lounge has a Juliet balcony with panoramic views. There are five attractive bedrooms set over three floors: three are doubles and two are twins (one twin can be made as a superking upon request). Step outside into the large garden where you can toast marshmallows over the stone fire pit and play croquet and swingball. Children will love the trampoline and swing & slide set.

Easy day trips include Corfe Castle, a charming village of thatched cottages with an ancient castle and a woodland waterpark with obstacle courses in natural lakes. At Studland, children can paddle in safe, shallow water, play on vast sandy beaches and hunt for crabs in rockpools. Enjoy the dramatic scenery at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, explore the ghost town of Tyneham and visit Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island -- cloaked with pine and oak forest and home to some incredibly fluffy red squirrels.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
