Light-filled contemporary cottage, situated in the extension of a traditional Purbeck cottage, offering sleek and stylish accommodation for two guests, just a mile from Dorset’s stunning Jurassic Coast.

The village of Worth Matravers on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula, offers the best of both worlds, surrounded by tranquil countryside and breath-taking secluded seascapes, and yet only a ten-minute drive from the popular seaside resort of Swanage. There are many miles of walks to be enjoyed direct from the cottage’s front door, including on the Priests Way which passes close by and takes walkers eastwards from the village to Swanage where visitors can jump aboard the steam trains on the Swanage Railway which run to Corfe Castle and back several times a day.

This contemporary extension to a traditional cottage has been lovingly finished to provide guests with a sleek and stylish retreat. In the main living space, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a vaulted skylight, and large south-facing windows flood the room with light, creating a beautiful space with a chic, modern feel. There is plenty of space to relax and unwind on the sofa and chairs, perhaps while enjoying a drink and a good book in front of the warming wood burner, or maybe cosying up and watching a film on the TV. A glass dining table sits in the window, allowing guests to enjoy the views over the surrounding countryside as they eat, well meals can be prepared in the kitchen which is equipped with an oven, hob, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. The microwave, washing machine, and a handy additional sink can be found in the separate utility room. The bedroom, meanwhile, is a restful king-size room, next to which the bathroom offers a bath, separate shower, and WC.

Large patio doors from the lounge area open out onto a gravelled seating area with a BBQ and garden furniture, beyond which a large lawned garden is a haven for wildlife where guests have been known to spot owls, badgers, and pheasants. There is parking for one or two cars outside the property.

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

This is a perfect place to stay for lots of coast path and inland walks and exploring. Easy to find, well equipped, comfortable and warm. Friendly owners and beautifully fitted out place to stay. We loved the Studio!

We were pleasantly surprised how generous in size the layout was as photos can often be deceiving. We loved the open plan living area and the bright aspect from so many windows and skylight roof. The views were beautiful. It was very clean and tastefully decorated.

We wanted to get away from it all for Christmas week and The Studio was perfect. Very secluded just outside a quiet village with a lovely pub, but plenty of amenities within a short drive so we could stock up on festive treats. The cottage had everything we needed - cosy lounge, beautiful bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. The owners also put upRead more a lovely tree! Our dog loved exploring the secure garden and despite the weather we had some nice walks. Would highly recommend for a quiet escape. Hide

Modern day luxury in just about the most relaxing, good old fashioned environment possible.

The Studio is brilliantly placed for walking the coastal path and the Priests Way, with a lovely garden and views of the sea. It is really comfortable and well-equipped, including a bath as well as a shower, and very warm off-season with its air source heat pump.

A fabulous studio. Spotlessly clean. The owners left us some supplies - tea, coffee, etc - which were very welcome. The garden is large with a sea view and totally enclosed so great for our dog. We've had a delightful holiday.

Comfortable studio apartment, set in a stunning location. Coastal walks on the doorstep and an amazing, characterful old pub within half a mile. The only slight downside would be that, with so much glass in the property, it may get very warm in sunny summer weather.
