Built in 1827 this former farm labourer’s cottage has been lovingly updated to provide a fantastic holiday home set in a secluded and breathtaking location close to the beautiful coast of Dorset.

Backing onto verdant fields, this secluded property is set close to the village of Worth Matravers and is an ideal base for exploring the Purbeck Hills. Dorset’s breathtaking coast is only 1 mile away, with nearby places of interest including Winspit Quarry (just over a mile), Chapman’s Pool (under a mile) and Old Harry Rocks (7 miles). The charming traditional seaside town of Swanage (4.5 miles) has a sandy beach, traditional promenade and pier. Heading inland, you can visit the ruins of Corfe Castle (4.5 miles) or explore the stunning Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve (7 miles). You can catch the ferry from Studland (7 miles) or enjoy the beaches at Lulworth Cove (16.5 miles) and Kimmeridge Bay (10 miles).

On entering this beautiful property, you can leave coats and boots in the hallway, then head down a few steps into the bright and welcoming lounge. This lovely, light-filled room is an ideal space to unwind in, with an oak floor, glass roof, comfortable seating and TV/DVD. The attractive kitchen/diner is stylishly arranged, with a high vaulted ceiling and oak floor, and features a pretty dining area and a kitchen which is equipped with a double oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, fridge and freezer. Three steps lead up to the utility room with the dryer. There’s also a snug on the lower ground floor with a wood burner, keyboard and plenty of seating. The ground floor offers two comfortable en-suite double bedrooms, one with a 5’ bed, an oak floor, a low arch and French doors to the terrace. The other double has a raised area for the bed, reached via two steps. Both en-suites are also accessed via a couple of steps. There is also an additional bathroom with a claw foot bath and hand-held shower. Going upstairs, you will find three more bedrooms, each with a window seat, wooden shutters and oak floors: one twin room, a double and a bunk bedroom. The first floor also features a shower room complete with shower and WC. Please note, the property is set over several levels, with a number of internal steps.

The front garden features a raised lawn, trees and shrubs, a children’s tree swing and a fire pit with stone seats (to be used at own risk). Heading round to the back, the garden is largely laid to lawn and is surrounded by trees and shrubs. The back garden has a large terrace with plenty of outdoor furniture, trampoline, a pizza oven, BBQ and outdoor shower. There’s also a lawn perfect for games and ample parking available.

Lovely big cottage - perfect for our needs. Walks to Aldhelm's Head and Chapman's Pool directly from the back on the cottage. 10mins walk from Worth Matravers centre.

Cottage was great for our family get together. The children and our dog loved the large garden and especially the trampoline. The house itself was very comfortable and user friendly. The village nearby is delightful and just a 5 minute walk away and there are many coastal walks you can do without getting in the car which was exactly what we needed.

Excellent room layout for large party. Pizza oven was great fun and all food was cooked on it. Large garden and trampoline enjoyed by the children.

Location

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
