Beautifully presented period cottage, offering stylish accommodation for eight guests, enjoying a peaceful location on the outskirts of the Dorset village of Langton Matravers.
This large, traditional cottage is situated on the estate of Leeson, on the outskirts of the hilltop village of Langton Matravers in the Isle of Purbeck. It enjoys spectacular open views from the sitting room, master bedroom and garden across fields to Swanage Bay. The village of Langton Matravers is home to a beautiful church, village shop, public house and small animal adventure farm. It is in a wonderful walking area with footpaths and bridleways from close to the cottage leading to the Purbeck Downs and the nearby Jurassic Coastline - a dramatic and unspoilt Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; with World Heritage status for its small bays, rugged cliffs, fossils and birdlife. The small resort of Swanage with its sandy beach, boating, diving and variety of restaurants and public houses, is within few minutes drive. The four miles of golden beach at Studland is within a ten to fifteen minute drive, as is Studland Golf course and the RSPB bird reserve at Arne.
