Grade II listed cottage offering a delightful holiday retreat for guests, featuring period details alongside architect-designed contemporary fixtures, situated just 3.5 miles from the seaside town of Swanage.

Egmont View stands at the centre of three Grade II listed cottages built in 1706, situated between the hill villages of Kingston, Langton Matravers and Worth Matravers and amidst the rolling hills of the Isle of Purbeck. The cottage is in a spectacular walking and cycling area with footpaths and bridleways leading from the property to the famous Jurassic coastline and surrounding countryside. Along this dramatic coast which is renowned for its range of flora, fauna and bird life, lie Dancing Ledge St Aldhelms Head and Chapmans Pool, all of which are accessible from the cottage. The Purbeck Nordic Walking Centre is situated a short walk from the property and Seacombe can be reached in a twenty minute walk. The seaside resort of Swanage and historic village of Corfe with its iconic castle, are both a five-minute drive of the property, with the four mile stretch of sandy beach at Studland less than a twenty minute drive away.

The cottage has recently been restored to its former glory by an award-winning architect and boasts many characterful features including an open fire with attractive brick surround, lime washed walls and original beams. This is married with modern amenities including underfloor heating, solar panel hot water and Fibre WiFi, making for a very comfortable stay in heritage surroundings. Egmont View has flagstone floors throughout with attractive rugs. Fittings have been sourced to maintain the integrity of the property including a staircase which has been salvaged from an old ship.

The front door opens into a cosy sitting room with seating for four, comprising a two seater sofa, small armchair and window seat, along with a television with Netflix. The open fireplace provides a central focus to the room and there are views from the window over the terrace gardens to the surrounding fields beyond. The adjoining hallway leads to a bunk bedroom with full sized single beds, a small wardrobe and views across the garden. Opposite, is the cottage bathroom which is fully tiled and has a bath with over bath shower, WC and basin. The fitted kitchen is an inviting space with bi-fold doors opening out into the garden and has dining space for four, an electric oven with induction hob, refrigerator, traditional butler sink, microwave, slimline dishwasher and washer dryer. A freezer is also provided.

A door from the living room opens onto the staircase with a rope bannister on one side leading to the master bedroom. This room has twin beds, a small wardrobe and chest of drawers, as well as views across the hills to the sea with glimpses of the Isle of Wight on a clear day. Heating electricity and Fibre WiFi are available at no extra charge. Please note that due to the traditional nature of the cottage, the front entrance doorway and wooden beams inside the property are quite low.

The cottage has a pretty garden at the rear of the property which is laid to lawn and has a small terrace with a barbecue. Garden furniture is provided so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine whilst enjoying the wonderful views across the countryside. One car can be parked in a private parking space to the side of the cottages with a gravelled path leading directly into the garden. There is a regular bus service to Swanage and Poole within a two-minute walk. It is a three minute drive to Langton Matravers which has a public house, village shop and parish church. A 15 minute walk leads to the picturesque village of Worth Matravers, renowned for its quaint duck pond and the old fashioned charm of its public house, The Square and Compass. Nearby places to visit include the National Trust properties of Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacey, as well as the homes of Lawrence of Arabia and Thomas Hardy. Boat trips run between April and October from Swanage pier to Poole Harbour along part of the Jurassic Coast and to Brownsea Island. To mention just a few further local attractions, Swanage Steam Railway, the Blue Pool Monkey World and the Tank Museum are within a short drive of the cottage.

Highly recommended. This is a charming and well-equipped cottage with beautiful views across the countryside. There is excellent storage in the bedrooms and the size was perfect for us (one adult and two children) but would also work for a family of 4. The only minor downsides were that the off-road parking space is on a fast road (not ideal for kiRead moreds getting in and out of the car), lack of front door access created some issues for takeaway delivery, and living room seating could be better.

Cottage was full of character. Proximity to bus stop and excellent bus service were a real bonus. The location is high and exposed, but stayed warm and cozy - even in the teeth of 45mph gales!

The cottage was smaller than the photos implied and not suitable for 4 adults. Very clean and with comfortable beds. Agood location with lovely country and coastal walks and easy access to many interesting places. Very friendly and informative neighbours and Mary the housekeeper was very helpful.

Great location for walks. Stunning coastline. Cottage only big enough for two. Kitchen well equipped but lounge seating poor. Nearest pub 1 mile across field. Nearest supermarket in Swanage

The cottage was set in an idyllic location, nestled in National Trust land with beautiful views across the fields. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the garden and sitting in front of the fire in the evenings. We were happy to be able to leave the car to go on walks straight from the cottage over to the coast and brilliant local pubs.Read more The cottage itself was very nicely presented, it was comfy, clean and I would recommend it highly!

I loved our stay in this beautifully appointed and located cottage. It was particularly magical early morning and at dusk. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with all the necessary user manuals. Initially we had a minor problem with the lock but help arrived extremely quickly. Thank you Mary.
