Wonderful walks, spectacular countryside and two pubs within a short walk, this commanding cottage is perfectly placed for up to nine guests to unwind in the charming village of Langton Matravers.
The Bakery Cottage is a lovely stone property which stands in the centre of the charming village of Langton Matravers, amidst beautiful Purbeck countryside and within a few minutes drive of the sandy beach of Swanage. The village is fortunate to have a shop and public house. It is also a wonderful walking area with footpaths and bridleways leading directly from the village to the nearby coast at Dancing Ledges, and joining the coastal path which can be followed to Swanage or westwards to the attractive coastal villages of Worth Matravers and Kimmeridge. At Swanage, visitors can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing and diving, as well as the traditional entertainments of Punch and Judy and pedaloes. The steam railway is a wonderful feature of the town and links the resort with the nearby village of Corfe Castle.
