Property code: IC176

Light-filled contemporary cottage, situated in the extension of a traditional Purbeck cottage, offering sleek and stylish accommodation for two guests, just a mile from Dorset’s stunning Jurassic Coast.

Elegant and impressive, this bijou-style property sleeps two in the heart of Worth Matravers, a pretty village on the Isle of Purbeck. Access a plethora of walks along the rugged Jurassic coastline and the countryside beyond, returning to dine with a view from the comfort of your fabulous open-plan living space. Based just 3.5 miles from Swanage, you’ll never be far from a sandy beach or a tempting array of bistros and bars.

Attached to a traditional cottage, the property has been extended with a sleek and contemporary finish and allows natural light to stream in through the vaulted skylight and large south-facing windows. Accessorised with stylish furniture and lavish accessories, all you’ll need to worry about is opening the wine and unwinding by the crackling wood burner. Dine with an al fresco vibe in the dining area, or step outside with your morning coffee and sizzle up some bacon butties on the BBQ. The large lawned garden is popular amongst the local wildlife, so look out for owls, pheasants and badgers. Completing the property is a generous bathroom and a superb king-size bedroom.

This stunning peninsula is best known for its beaches and iconic landmarks such as Lulworth Cove 16 miles away, a beautiful destination with a seemingly endless stretch of sand and azure waters. Corfe Castle is also a must-see 4 miles away, where you can tread in the footsteps of ancient noblemen as you explore the majestic ruins. Closer to home, the village of Worth Matravers boasts a series of historic walks including the Priests Way which leads to Swanage, and of course The Smugglers Way, an eerie track down to the coast path which smugglers used to bring their goods ashore.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage, has all the necessary amenities. Very quiet and cosy with the fire. Close enough to Swanage to pop in and fetch fish and chips, short walk into the village (1/2 mile) to the pub and village tea rooms, beware of the steep hill on the way back! We enjoyed a great break here.

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.

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.
