Forming part of a small terrace overlooking a pond, this Grade II-listed cottage offers attractive and comfortable holiday accommodation on the Isle of Purbeck.
This delightful stone cottage with a green front door is beautifully situated overlooking the large mill pond in the pretty old part of Swanage. The pond is home to ducks and moorhens and is beside the charming church of St Marys. This is a lovely, peaceful setting with no passing traffic. The cottage is within a pleasant five-minute stroll of the sandy beach of the seaside resort; here, the sand gently slopes into the water and is ideal for swimming and paddling. Boat trips can be enjoyed, as well as fishing and diving. A wonderful steam railway links Swanage with the historic village of Corfe Castle. The cottage is also in a wonderful cycling and walking area. There are scenic coastal walks westwards to the traditional Purbeck villages of Worth Matravers, Kingston and Kimmeridge with their stone cottages, traditional public houses and local ciders. Walks westwards across Ballard Down with magnificent views of Old Harrys Rocks, to miles of unspoilt sandy beach at Studland; a haven for wildlife and birds.
