A haven for keen walkers and cyclists, this attractive cottage offers the perfect countryside retreat close to the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline.

This delightful cottage is superbly located in the small village of Langton Matravers, amidst the beautiful countryside of the Isle of Purbeck. It’s a wonderful walking and cycling area, with footpaths and bridleways leading from close to the cottage to the coastal path, which leads east to Swanage and west to the coastal villages of Worth Matravers, Kimmeridge, and Lulworth. Visitors also have direct access across surrounding farmland to the nearby woodland, and can follow footpaths along the valley to the pretty village of Corfe Castle, where you can explore its castle ruins and tearooms. The lovely sandy beach and amusements of Swanage are also really closeby

Standing in a quiet gravel lane which leads to half a dozen properties, this cottage is at the centre of a small terrace. It’s been renovated to provide a comfortable, classic countryside accommodation. On the ground floor you’ll find a wonderfully spacious open-plan kitchen/diner, with a Purbeck stone tiled floor and underfloor heating. The dining area is beside a window seat which overlooks the garden, while the kitchen is well-equipped with fitted oak units and a large range-style cooker with a gas hob and electric oven. There’s also a microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and ceramic sink, as well as a separate utility area with washing machine. The cosy lounge has a woodburning stove, as well as comfortable sofas and a TV/DVD; it’s the perfect spot to unwind. A WC is also on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to a spacious double bedroom, which boasts garden views and an en-suite shower room with WC. There’s also a twin bedroom, and a bathroom with bath, overhead shower, and WC. Further stairs lead up to the second floor, where there is a large twin bedroom which extends the width of the cottage. From here you can enjoy the far-reaching views to the sea. A folding bed can be provided for an additional child.

Step outside into the enclosed garden. From the kitchen there’s a patio area with garden furniture, and a small number of steps lead to a garden area - the perfect spot to enjoy relaxing in the sunshine. Opposite the cottage you’ll find a private parking pace for one car.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
