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.

This property is situated in a quiet countryside location on Dorset’s Isle of Purbeck, within a few miles of the coast at Swanage to the east and Dancing Ledge to the south. Each of these offer very different seaside experiences, with Swanage boasting a wide sandy beach next to which visitors will find a swathe of cafes, kiosks, beach shops, and deckchair hire. Dancing Ledge, meanwhile, is part of the breathtaking rugged coastline of the Jurassic Coast, famed for its fossil-rich beaches, this whole area is renowned for its breath-taking walks with magnificent seascapes. To the north of the village, Corfe Castle is a popular day trip, as are Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World.

The front door of this 18th century cottage opens directly into the charming lounge, a wonderfully cosy room with a comfortable sofa, a window seat, an open fire, and a Netflix-enabled TV. Next to the lounge, the kitchen/diner has been thoughtfully updated in a contemporary style and features bi-fold doors which allow guests to extend the space out into the garden. Everything is provided to allow guests to make all their favourite meals, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. A hallway leads to the bunk bedroom, a restful room with a beamed ceiling and cottage-style window, across the hall from which the chic and stylish bathroom is fully-tiled and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. The staircase which leads to the first floor is an interesting and unusual feature which has been salvaged from a ship and has a rope handrail. Once upstairs, guests will find the remaining a bedroom: a pretty twin room which has a chest of drawers and wardrobe.

Outside, the property benefits from a pleasant garden to the rear of the property which comprises a terraced patio with garden furniture and a BBQ, as well as a lawn. There is off-road parking for one car to the side of the property.

Being and old cottage access is not to current standards, how this was all clear in the description of the property and there were no surprises other than the fantastic views

Fantastic location and views, very handy for the bus to Corfe and Swanage if you want a break from driving but there are no local shops. Very clean and ok for two people but it would be very cramped for more than two and you wouldn't be able to sit down for a meal at the kitchen table. Unfortunately the seating is not very comfortable but the beds Read moreare fine. The doorways are low so mind your heads!! Hide

Super period cottage in a stunning location. Great location for walking or as a base for touring the Jurassic coastline. Good local pubs and less that 4 miles from Corfe Castle or Swanage. Well equipped cottage with helpful and friendly neighbours.

Warm cottage but much smaller than appears in photos. Hob very difficult to operate. Cottage okay but we had a few issues and would not return.

There are lots of really interesting things to see and places to go in this area. I left a written sheet of comments about the property in 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!
