    “Cottage lacks attention to detail.”

    Living areas not particularly clean. Sink leaking and broken dishwasher reported at the beginning of the holiday and plumber never turned up to fix it after being promised. The only heater (fan) in the small living area not working and not adequate. Only six out of the ten people could sit together on comfortable seating. Bedrooms and bathrooms fine.

The property

Samphire Cottage, a magnificent, stone-fronted home, is located in the centre of the charming village of Langton Matravers, which is located inside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Dorset.

Inviting 10 guests into a contemporary abode, offering an enclosed, wrap-around garden, and flexible sleeping options, just steps from local shops and restaurants, and a short drive from the seaside, Samphire Cottage is the perfect place to enjoy a group celebration; two furry friends are also welcome.

Park up to the rear of the cottage, making your way into the open-plan living space, light-flooded, stylishly furnished, and used as the social hub of the property; take advantage of the sleek kitchen, where you can rustle up delicious meals, dine as a group, and retreat to the homely sitting area in front of the electric fire.

Before heading inside to rest in one of the five well-appointed bedrooms, choosing from a stylish king-size with TV and en-suite shower, a ground-floor double with en-suite bathroom, and three roomy twins, "cheers" to your break while watching the sky grow darker upon the patio.

The cottage is completed with a sleek bathroom with a bath and a shower to accommodate everyone's tastes.

Start your day with a morning coffee while your four-legged pals stretch their legs, before grabbing your walking boots and venturing towards a hidden gem in the area, the Dancing Ledge, offering stunning views of Dorset's shoreline.

Continue along the Purbeck Heritage Coast until you reach Swanage, where you can explore a variety of attractions including its lively pier, Swanage Beach, Durlston Country Park, a National Nature Reserve that is great for hiking through, and Swanage Golf Games, where you can play a round of pitch and putt.

As you enter the county and head towards Wareham, make a pit stop at the Dorset Adventure Park to enjoy an afternoon of water sports, climb the landscape surrounding Corfe Castle's ruins, observe birds in the nearby Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve, or take in the breath-taking views from the secluded Blue Pool.

Before returning home for your final sundowners, round up your break with a trip to the well-known town of Bournemouth, which is accessible by car and offers a wealth of attractions to see across the pier, including the Oceanarium and the Lower Gardens.

Make memories with Samphire Cottage as your abode.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

LANGTON MATRAVERS

Swanage 2.6 miles; Wareham 8.2 miles.

The quaint village of Langton Matravers lies on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, two miles west of Swanage and 5 miles south-east of Corfe Castle. The name Langton derives from ‘long town’ and Matravers stems from the name of the Lord who once resided there. Langton Matravers Museum showcases the local history of the town, providing a complete picture of the ways in which the local stone was quarried and used. The surrounding area is very popular for walking and a number of walking trails pass through the village, including the ‘Smugglers Way’ which begins at Worth Matravers and then travels down to the coast path and back again to visit where smugglers were known to bring their goods ashore. The village is also home to a refreshment shop and a traditional village pub which hosts an annual Stone Carving and Pumpkin Festival. Resting on the outside of the village is Dancing Ledge, an old cliff quarry which offers breath-taking views of the coast. Those who are looking for adventure can even climb the rock face or coasteer at the Ledge.

Please note: Samphire Cottage forms part of the Old Malthouse School. The School site is currently being redeveloped throughout 2023/2024 and new homes are being built. The works are next to the property. This may impact your stay but prices have been reduced to reflect this.
