A spacious family home ideal for groups, this cottage rewards guests with fantastic views and the chance to unplug and unwind surrounded by Dorset goodness.

Found in the village of Worth Matravers, you can enjoy easy access to country routes and coastal walks. Perched on the cliffs, take in views of endless seas and tread footsteps high above the water. Only 1 mile away, Keats Quarry dinosaur trackway is an absolute must for all generations. Exhibiting amazing dinosaur footprints preserved in limestone, the footprints are 140 million years old and give an insight into how the area got its name – the Jurassic Coast. For town activities and a trip to the beach, drive the 4 miles to Swanage and make the most of the plethora of things to see and do.

A sunlit cottage emphasising light and tranquillity, there is an immediate sense of ease. To start your holiday, head down the property’s outside steps and open the door. For tired travellers, the lounge will be an irresistible proposition. Kitted out with a plush sofa and two armchairs, the room’s ambience is enhanced with the addition of a wood burner. Open the patio doors in summer to let sunshine flood in or curl up in winter as the wood burner casts a rosy glow. For extra entertainment, a TV is provided so you can catch up on your favourite show or watch a film. A lovely space to gather throughout the day, the kitchen/diner overlooks the garden and offers the perfect balance of space and cosiness. Equipped with an oven, electric hob, dishwasher and more, you can prepare delicious repasts to tuck into around the family-sized dining table. Also downstairs is a utility room with separate WC, washing machine and tumble drier. Up the steep staircase, the cottage’s three bedrooms can be found. All decorated with neutral, relaxing tones, the bedrooms include a double, a 5ft double and a bunk with two singles. An ideal room for children, the bunk room has reduced head height at one end. Also featuring reduced head height in the eaves, upstairs has an attractive family bathroom. Here, a bath, shower, WC and heated towel rail add a sense of luxury to your routine.

For lazy, summer afternoons there is no better place than the garden. A south-facing space with lots of lawn and a seating area, the unenclosed garden enjoys glimpses of the sea and is surrounded by pretty vegetation. For parking, the property has a raised gravel parking space at the front with steps leading down to the front door.

This is a gem of a cottage that met all of our requirements. Old charm but with modern facilities. Well furnished and recently decorated. The log burner was great for the cooler nights. No mobile phone signal but great Wifi. Good for scenic coastal walks and bike rides along bridle ways to Swanage or Corfe Castle.

Lovely cottage with good playing space for children at the back and no distance from the village. Wonderful walks to St Albans Hesd and Winspit. Books and toys, maps etc in good supply. Fishing swimming walking and rock climbing and great beaches all close at hand

This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in since first coming to Worth Matravers in 1984! Its perfectly situated in the heart of the village, with lovely sea views, and easy access to several coastal walks. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The large garden is a delight and a haven for birds.
