Worth Matravers Studio is a delightful property situated on the edge of a peaceful village, with open rural and sea views from the garden. It is nestled at the end of a short lane and is close to various cycle routes. There is also almost direct access to footpaths down to the sea at Seacombe and to the Southwest coastal path that are accessible without crossing a road. The iconic Jurassic Coast is a 10 to 15 minute walk away and the popular Square and Compass pub is within a five-minute stroll. The Studio is an ideal place to enjoy a break amid beautiful scenery with the best of Purbeck's nature on your doorstep.

The Studio is a recently extended wing of an elegant Purbeck stone property and provides spacious and comfortable accommodation all on one level for two in one bedroom. Great attention to detail and care has been taken when decorating the property which has oak wood flooring and eco underfloor heating throughout. The Studio's open plan living space faces south and east, and is exceptionally light and airy with floor to ceiling wooden windows and French doors across one wall, and a large vaulted skylight above the sitting area.

The French doors open out onto the extensive garden which is laid to lawn and fully fenced. There are various seating areas from which to take in the breath-taking views across the Purbeck Hills and down to the sea. Garden furniture and loungers are provided along with a BBQ so guests can enjoy eating outside. Towards the bottom of the garden there are fruit trees which guests can enjoy eating in season. The garden has been kept as a great wildlife habitat with Tawny Owls badgers rabbits and pheasants being frequent visitors. Complimentary freshly laid free range hen's eggs are provided whenever available.

The kitchen has a full sized fridge-freezer, double electric oven and hob, plus a small island housing additional worktop space, sink and a dishwasher. A striking sofa and armchair are placed around a wood burning stove with an attractive mosaic panel beneath it creating a beautiful feature in the room.

The location was superb and the garden was great for our dogs to roam around. The pub was within a short walk with minimal traffic so safe. The inclusion of internet and access to all TV (Netflix, ITV hub, I-player) was great for a quiet night in. The cottage had all the white goods needed for a hassle free environment.
