Traditional Purbeck cottage, offering thoughtfully maintained period-style accommodation for up to nine, set within almost one acre of attractive grounds, located in the Dorset village of Worth Matravers.

Retreat to this traditional stone cottage in the scenic village of Worth Matravers, in Devon. Set on the Isle of Purbeck Peninsula, the attractive, four-bedroom holiday home is surrounded by picturesque countryside and within 1 mile of the coast. Up to eight guests are welcome to stay at the beautifully finished property, which features vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers, and is set within exquisite grounds of an acre.

Bring your party into this property, which could be ideal for a group of friends or two families holidaying together. Head into the lounge, with its wooden floor, to stoke up the wood burner and settle down to your favourite TV programme. Find the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner is equally inviting and well equipped with everything you need to cook up feasts together. Gather round the table in here too at mealtimes or for a hand of cards before bed. A utility room with WC, basin, freezer, additional fridge and washing machine, is also downstairs. Discover a shower room and one of your bedrooms on the ground floor too: this striking room makes a perfect sanctuary, with its vaulted ceiling, seating area, TV and wood burner. Climb the cottage-style stairs to the first floor and your remaining three bedrooms, one of which also has a relaxation area, with sofa and TV and the family bathroom.  You will also find an additional bathroom with separate shower and freestanding bath with WE and basin.  Spill out into your beautiful garden on warm spring, summer and autumn days. Light the BBQ and play with the children on the lawn. Retreat to the walled courtyard for a few quiet minutes alone with your holiday book. Find four or five cars can park at the property.

Enjoy the many opportunities for being out and about in the fresh air here. Head down to the Jurassic Coast, approximately 1 mile away, to follow a stretch of the South West Coast Path in the direction of Kimmeridge Bay, about 7 miles away, or magical Lulworth Cove, 14 miles away. Wander some 0.5 miles to the eery, disused quarry at Winspit, which has featured in a number of science fiction films and TV programmes, including Dr Who. Find bustling Swanage is just 4 miles from Worth Matravers. Head there on foot via the Priests Walk or drive in to go to the sandy beach, browse in the shops and perhaps dine out. From here catch the steam train to the National Trust’s Corfe Castle, which has been a Saxon stronghold, Norman fortress and royal palace – and now offers ruins to explore in a scenic setting. Before returning home pause for afternoon tea and a slice of cake in the tearoom in Worth Matravers or perhaps have a pint in the evening sunshine at the village pub, while taking in the views.

We love this cottage and have visited 5 or 6 times. We would describe it as shabby/chic - perfect for family get togethers. The long kitchen table is perfect for sharing family meals or fabric printing T shirts with the grandchildren This year the standard of cleanliness was disappointing...appalling ,considering we had given you the extra time andRead more worryingly as our group included over 70s and young children Top freezer frozen in fridge, and missing shelves in the door of the main fridge Hide

Very interesting, cosy cottage with a lovely big garden, especially appreciated by the children in the family group. Plenty of walks to do from the cottage and nearby sheep field for kite flying! Sadly the house felt damp though the dehumidifier in downstairs bedroom was much appreciated. Great w/machine and tumble dryer.

A lovely cottage in an idyllic part of Dorset. A great choice for two families...apart yet together. We love the long kitchen table for leisurely meals and children's rainy day activities and the new spacious outside table with parasol It is our 6th year!!

Great location. Good sized property and perfect for a family gathering. Great garden play area. Situated in a lovely village with a duck pond and play area. Close to Swanage but nice to be away from the town and in the countryside.
