Self-catering holiday accommodation in Worth Matravers
The village of Worth Matravers is one of Dorset’s hidden gems. Situated on the cliffs west of Swanage, this pretty quarrying village comprises limestone cottages and farmhouses built around the iconic village duck pond which is a regular feature on postcards of the Isle of Purbeck. Worth Matravers is also home to a famous pub which provides pints, pasties and a fantastic view and has a strong community feel.
The village is close to the dramatic limestone cliffs that are featured on the South West Coast Path and the UNESCO Jurassic Coast. Head to the most southerly tip of the Isle of Purbeck, St Aldhelm's Head where a unique Norman Chapel and a radar monument attract visitors from all across the country. Walkers will love the many walks in the area, a particularly interesting one being the circular route from Worth Matravers to Seacombe via Winspit. Stay awhile on the rocky beaches or head back to the village for an early supper in the friendly village pub.
