Three-storey stone cottage offering comfortable accommodation for up to six guests, located in the pretty village of Langton Matravers, just two miles from the seaside town of Swanage.

Willow Cottage is situated in Langton Matravers - a picturesque village amidst the beautiful Purbeck Hills. This is a wonderful walking and cycling area, with easy access to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline. Footpaths lead almost directly from the cottage to the coastal path. Bird watching, climbing and diving are popular in the area. Visitors also have direct access across National Trust fields to nearby woodland and can follow footpaths along the valley to the historic village of Corfe Castle, with its castle ruins, thatched cottages, teashops and steam railway. The sandy beach of Swanage is a five-minute drive away and here swimming, paddling and boating can be enjoyed. A village shop and public house are within a five-minute walk.

Willow Cottage stands at the end of a peaceful unmade lane. The cottage is centrally heated and provides comfortable accommodation for five to six people in three bedrooms. On the ground floor there is a combined kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is equipped with fitted units, Purbeck stone work tops, a ceramic sink, an electric fan oven and hob, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The adjoining utility area houses a washing machine, freezer and microwave. There is a wet room with underfloor heating, a shower, basin and WC. A cosy sitting room has sofas and chairs, a wood burning stove, and a flat screen television with DVD player and Freeview. There is also a single bedroom, suitable for someone requiring all facilities on the same level.

Stairs lead up to a double bedroom with a sea view, and a shower room with a built-in shower, basin and WC. Further stairs ascend to the third floor where there is an attic-style twin bedroom. An additional bed can be provided on the landing area from which the twin room is accessed. Central heating and electricity are provided at no extra charge. A travel cot can be provided if required.

There is a small garden opposite the cottage with a table and chairs, and a private parking space for one car. An hourly bus service links Langton Matravers to Swanage, Corfe Castle, Wareham and Poole. Willow Cottage adjoins Swift Cottage and can be rented in conjunction with this other property.

Great location, everything you need within a few minutes drive and local facilities a few moments away. Although we didnt manage any of the local walks, there was evidence in abundance of plenty of nature trails to explore. The cottage itself was well equipped with everything you might need, unusual for this time of year but we had the CH on duringRead more our stay, it was most efficient in all areas. Good secure parking opposite although a tad tight to enter. Good hourly bus service close by. Hide

Had a lovely weeks stay at willow cottage, It is at the end of a row of cottages down a very quiet side street. Ideal for exploring Dorset. There is a lovely little garden opposite to sit in. The kitchen had everything you need for your stay. Beds are very comfy! Slept really well, just be aware of the birds that may wake you up tweeting! The stairRead mores in the cottage are obviously original and are quite steep so that could be a problem for some people. I would stay here again if visiting the area. Hide

Perfect for long walks. If you want to get out and about on foot, then this is the house for you! The owners, Kate and Tev, are delightful and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Lovely people.

Beautiful stone cottage in a great location. Peaceful and tastefully decorated, Willow cottage was a perfect base for our family holiday. The courtyard garden provided a tranquil venue for al fresco breakfasts and there was a warm welcome from Sue (owner) and an added bonus of a nice bottle of wine. Good pressure in the upstairs shower made this thRead moree preferred option for our family. Less than 10 mins drive to Swanage beach and 20 mins to the beautiful Studland National Trust beaches. Thank you. Hide

Excellent location for our needs with walks, bus route to Swanage, good village shop and children's playground nearby, and only a short drive to the beach at Studland. Parking for one car by cottage but street parking for a second car nearby. Quirky cottage, a bit more shabby than chic and rather cramped for our family of four adults and one child.Read more Bedrooms on three levels with two very steep flights of stairs between them.
