Property code: DC201
Built in 1827 this former farm labourer’s cottage has been lovingly updated to provide a fantastic holiday home set in a secluded and breathtaking location close to the beautiful coast of Dorset.
This fantastic property, set in a secluded location close to the village of Worth Matravers (0.5 miles), is perfect for a big getaway to the Purbeck Hills for families and groups of friends alike. Sleeping ten across five bright and welcoming bedrooms with two cosy lounges, there's room for everyone to find their own corner. Plus, the huge garden offers kids lots to explore, while the grown-ups can enjoy a relaxing evening around the fire pit after a tasty meal cooked on the pizza oven. Take a walk up to the village pub (0.5 miles) for a pint and one of their renowned pies after a day at the beach at Swanage (4.5 miles).
Leave your coats and boots in the hallway and head down a couple of steps into the beautiful accommodation which mixes the traditional and contemporary perfectly – just mind the different levels and internal steps. Head into the sun-filled lounge and enjoy fabulous garden views from the sofas – here, stunning bi-folding doors lead to a pretty patio with enough seating for everybody as well as a lawn area that's ideal for garden games. If you prefer the peace and quiet, pop into the snug on the lower ground floor and curl up in front of the wood burner on one of the comfy sofas with a good book and a cup of tea. The chefs among you will revel in the stylish kitchen with a high vaulted ceiling and oak floors; cook up a storm for your guests and serve it in the pretty dining area that looks out onto the garden, or dine alfresco on warm summer evenings. And the breakfast bar will soon become the place to pick up a snack before heading out for a day of exploration. At bedtime, you'll be fighting over your favourite room with your friends; one of the ground floor en-suite double bedrooms has French doors to the terrace, the ideal spot for your morning coffee, while the upstairs bedrooms boast a nautical theme and charming window seats.
