Dating back to 1772 this charming Grade II listed Purbeck Stone quarryman’s cottage offers cosy accommodation for those looking to explore the beautiful Swanage area of Dorset.
This delightful Grade II-listed, Purbeck stone, quarryman’s cottage is in the peaceful village of Worth Matravers. With the stunning Jurassic coastline and many popular walking trails close by, this property is in the perfect location for exploring the local area. The two-bedroom home, which cleverly combines modern decor with classic cottage style, is on a no-through lane which leads to the sea at Winspit, 1 mile away. The village pub is a 100-metre walk, with the nearest shop 2 miles away.
A homely dining area and sitting room welcomes you as you enter through the stable door. Curl up in front of the wood burner after a busy day of exploring, or why not make use of the Smart TV, subscription services, DVD player and stereo, which is certain to keep everyone entertained. Step into the well-equipped kitchen where you’ll find everything you need to rustle up a snack. French doors lead out into a small courtyard with a gas BBQ, perfect for those relaxed holiday evenings. The bathroom, with a shower, is also on this level and has cosy underfloor heating. Steep, cottage-style stairs take you to the first double bedroom, where a relaxing night’s sleep awaits. Very steep stairs, with a rope handrail, lead to the second-floor double bedroom – taller guests will need to mind their heads in the eaves here. Outside, parking is available in the village car park 200 metres away.
Keen walkers are in for a treat here, with one of the many popular routes starting in the village. Smugglers’ Way is a 3-mile circular trail which travels along the South West Coast Path to Seacombe. Of course, the famous Jurassic coastline – a World Heritage Site – offers ample opportunities to explore, as well. The resort of Swanage is 4 miles from the cottage.
