More details and Booking Form


Comfortable holiday cottage sleeping five guests, situated in a fantastic location for exploring the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, within walking distance of the historic Jurassic Coast at Dancing Ledge.

This property is located in the quiet Dorset village of Langton Matravers, which lies just two miles west of the seaside resort of Swanage with its sandy beach, Victorian pier and seafront cafes. The town is also home to the Swanage Steam Railway which runs to Corfe Castle where visitors can spend the day exploring the impressive ruins. For those who enjoy walking there are many miles of countryside and coastal paths locally, including the somewhat challenging walk to the secluded bay at Dancing Ledge and more accessible walks along the Priests Way which passes open fields to Swanage and the neighbouring village of Worth Matravers.

Upon arrival at this cottage, visitors are able to make themselves at home in the spacious lounge/diner which runs the length of the house from front-to-back. The lounge area, overlooking the front aspect of the property, is furnished with a comfortable three-piece suite and has a feature fireplace and TV/DVD. The dining area, meanwhile, occupies the opposite end of the room and has French windows which open out onto the garden. The kitchen offers everything that guests will need to prepare their favourite meals, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher, and washing machine. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the first of which is a double which looks out over the garden, whilst there is also a twin room and a restful single. The bathroom, which is also located on the first floor has a shower-over-bath and WC.

To the rear of the property the property boasts a split-level garden which has a terraced patio seating area with garden furniture, steps from which lead down to a lawned area. A small bridge leads across to another garden area, beyond which steps lead across a wall and onto the footpath which leads to the coast at Dancing Ledge. There is parking for one car on the driveway and additional roadside parking on the lane to the side of the property. Please note that there is a steep drop on the approach to the cottage from the parking on the lane. In addition to this, there is a stream at the bottom of the garden around which children will need to be supervised.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
