It was a very sweet cozy cottage, very well equipped, especially considering its size. We had a lovely time there and the location was idyllic.

Enjoyed Christmas week in the wonderful Worth Matravers. Fig Tree Cottage was ideal for our needs (adults and children) with a beautifully presented living area and well proportioned bedrooms. The festive decorations were a very welcome surprise in our arrival.

Fig Tree Cottage benefits from a great location in the heart of Worth Matravers. If you absolutely require more than one bathroom/toilet, this is probably not for you. However, our party of 4 adults and 2 young children managed without too much hassle. Parking for just one car (via a voucher for the village car park), could have been a bit tricky.

This is property we've stayed at 13 times and a location we've been visiting for about 30 years, so we're rather biased in its favour !
