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.
Backing onto verdant fields, this secluded property is set close to the village of Worth Matravers and is an ideal base for exploring the Purbeck Hills. Dorset’s breathtaking coast is only 1 mile away, with nearby places of interest including Winspit Quarry (just over a mile), Chapman’s Pool (under a mile) and Old Harry Rocks (7 miles). The charming traditional seaside town of Swanage (4.5 miles) has a sandy beach, traditional promenade and pier. Heading inland, you can visit the ruins of Corfe Castle (4.5 miles) or explore the stunning Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve (7 miles). You can catch the ferry from Studland (7 miles) or enjoy the beaches at Lulworth Cove (16.5 miles) and Kimmeridge Bay (10 miles).
On entering this beautiful property, you can leave coats and boots in the hallway, then head down a few steps into the bright and welcoming lounge. This lovely, light-filled room is an ideal space to unwind in, with an oak floor, glass roof, comfortable seating and TV/DVD. The attractive kitchen/diner is stylishly arranged, with a high vaulted ceiling and oak floor, and features a pretty dining area and a kitchen which is equipped with a double oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, fridge and freezer.
