Traditional Purbeck cottage, offering thoughtfully maintained period-style accommodation for up to nine, set within almost one acre of attractive grounds, located in the Dorset village of Worth Matravers.

Take a party or even two families to this handsome stone cottage in Worth Matravers on Dorset’s Isle of Purbeck. Sleeping up to eight guests across four bedrooms, it has been beautifully renovated and carefully updated, and nestles in mature gardens. Soak up the sunshine at home or head 3.5 miles into Swanage to spend time on the sandy beach. Head off on walks along the Jurassic coastline and return to eat in the local pub, with its sea views.

Enter this chocolate-box, Grade II-listed cottage to find a wealth of original features. Relax in the beamed lounge together, basking in the glow of the wood burner as you watch TV. Head into the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, with its oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, to prepare holiday feasts and dine at the long table. Find a separate WC, basin, freezer, second fridge, and washing machine in the utility room and a shower room with WC and hand basin. The master bedroom, with its king-size bed, is at this level too. This beautiful room has a vaulted ceiling and seating area with a wood burner and TV. Follow the cottage-style stairs up to the other three bedrooms, including a king-size, with seating area and TV, a double and a twin, you will also find the family bathroom with free standing bath, separate shower, WB and hand basin. Enjoy outdoor living in the spacious garden: light the BBQ and dine in the fresh air as the children play on the grass, up some steps. The driveway here can accommodate up to five cars.

Explore the scenic surroundings straight from the house. Walk 2 miles along footpaths, including the South West Coast Path, to the beauty spots of Winspit Quarry or Dancing Ledge. Drive 16 miles to swim at Lulworth Cove and to see famous Durdle Door. Head 17 miles to scenic Studland Bay for long sandy beaches and heathland walks.

We spent a wonderful week in this characterful cottage and would love to come back sometime! Cottage is very well equipped and in a great location. My husband has some mobility issues and would have struggled a bit with the stairs so the downstairs bedroom was perfect for us. The weather was so hot that we were able to enjoy family meals outside buRead moret the large table in the kitchen was great for family breakfasts. Hide

We had a lovely one week stay at Worth Cottage in July. We were very impressed with the cottage and would happily consider revisiting again next year.

We love this cottage and have visited 5 or 6 times. We would describe it as shabby/chic - perfect for family get togethers. The long kitchen table is perfect for sharing family meals or fabric printing T shirts with the grandchildren This year the standard of cleanliness was disappointing...appalling ,considering we had given you the extra time andRead more worryingly as our group included over 70s and young children Top freezer frozen in fridge, and missing shelves in the door of the main fridge Hide
