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.
Located just a mile north of Dorset’s Jurassic coast and four miles south of Corfe Castle, the village of Worth Matravers is a splendid location for enjoying all that the Isle of Purbeck peninsula has to offer. In the village itself, and within walking distance of the cottage, a delightful tearoom is a great place to enjoy afternoon tea and is even open for evening meals on Saturday nights. The village pub, meanwhile, retains its original charm and has a pretty beer garden from where visitors can enjoy views towards the sea. To the east of the property, within a ten-minute drive, the seaside town of Swanage offers a sandy beach with a Victorian pier where visitors can hire deckchairs and enjoy ice creams from one of the sea-front shops.
It is hard to imagine a property which better represents most people’s idea of a picture-perfect country cottage, and the owners have carefully preserved many of the original features to retain that charming cottage-feel. This sympathetic sense of style is clearly in evidence in the lounge, an attractive room with wooden floors, inviting sofas, a warming wood burner, and a beamed ceiling, as well as a TV/DVD. The kitchen/diner too has been thoughtfully finished with a tiled floor, farmhouse table, and an excellent range of equipment including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, whilst the freezer, a second fridge, and a washing machine can be found tucked away in a separate utility room. The master king-size bedroom can also be found on the ground floor, and has been finished to a very high standard, with a beamed apex ceiling, oak floorboards, a seating area with a sofa and its own TV, and even a wood burner, all of which help to create a retreat-like feel to this beautiful space. Two shower rooms, each with a shower and WC can also be found on the ground floor, whilst a door from the kitchen opens onto traditional cottage stairs leading up to the three remaining bedrooms. The first of these is another king-size room, again boasting its own seating area with a sofa, armchair, and a TV. The third bedroom is a smaller-sized, yet nonetheless delightful double room, whilst the fourth is a pretty twin room.
The property enjoys a fantastic amount of outside space, with generously-sized terrace patio with garden furniture and a BBQ area next to the cottage, beyond which steps lead to an impressively large lawn, where children can happily play to their heart’s content. A separate walled courtyard can also be found alongside the cottage. There is parking for two to three cars available on the driveway.
Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
