Property code: IC147

Beautifully presented period cottage, offering stylish accommodation for eight guests, enjoying a peaceful location on the outskirts of the Dorset village of Langton Matravers.

This property enjoys a rural location just on the edge of the hilltop village of Langton Matravers, with its village pub and handy shop. There is even a fun children’s farm park in the village, which is always a hit with families and offers playground facilities and indoor soft play, along side a range of farm animals and pets. Two miles to the east of the village, the town of Swanage offers a wide sandy beach, and traditional seaside entertainment, whilst just a few miles further around the coast, guests will find four miles of National Trust maintained beaches at Studland Bay. The area around the cottage is ideal for enjoying leisurely country walks with a footpath that leads you directly to the Coastal Path, as is the famous Jurassic coastline where visitors may be luckily enough to find their own fossils to take home.

At the heart of this attractive cottage, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a fantastic space which allows guests to easily enjoy spending time together, whether they be cooking, dining, or simply relaxing. At one end of the room inviting sofas next to the cosy wood burner allow guests to chat and relax over drinks. The kitchen area, meanwhile, is equipped with breakfast bar seating, as well as an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, wine cooler, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine can be found in a separate utility room where there is also a ground-floor WC. A separate dining room is an excellent place to linger over meals in the evenings, and there is also another lounge, this time an elegantly finished room with seating, a TV/DVD, a wood burner, and a snooker table. One of the property’s bedrooms, a double room with an en-suite shower and WC can also be found on the ground floor, while the remaining three bedrooms are located upstairs on the first floor, all of which benefit from en-suite facilities. The first of these is a double room which has its own TV and en-suite shower and WC, whilst the second room, a twin also has an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC. The master bedroom, a king-size room, is accessed via its own separate staircase from the ground floor and boasts its own TV, views across to Swanage, and an en-suite bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, the cottage has a spacious garden which consists of a paved courtyard seating area for which garden furniture is provided, as well as a secluded lawn which is a great place for children to play. Off-road parking at the front of the property has space for four cars.


Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
