    “Overall disappointed with this cottage.”

    First impressions make a difference - a fridge with a freezer compartment blocked and full of ice, instant coffee solid in its container, an untidy garden and approach path with numerous weeds. The external picnic table also needing renewal. To be fair the owner responded but a holiday arrival should not require such dialogue. The property was clean and well prepared otherwise.

    First impressions make a difference - a fridge with a freezer compartment blocked and full of ice, instant coffee solid in its container, an untidy garden and approach path with numerous weeds. The external picnic table also needing renewal. To be fair the owner responded but a holiday arrival should not require such dialogue. The property was clean and well prepared otherwise. To benefit future users I would suggest the stay experience is enhanced by renewing faded towels, the provision of kitchen towel roll and dispenser, a coffee press cafetiere, a wider range of drinking glassware, a salad bowl and a shaving mirror. The wardrobe was full of cleaners equipment which precluded its full use. The property does suffer from road noise and the road facing windows at least need better glazing.

The property

Sea Pink Cottage is a charming single-storey Purbeck Stone cottage, resting in the idyllic and picturesque village of Langton Matravers, just 2 miles from the seaside town of Swanage.

Serving as a wonderful base for a couple to enjoy a romantic and tranquil escape, this newly refurbished property is a few moments from the popular “Kings Arms” public house and a local shop where you can pick up daily essentials, along with the majestic Jurassic coast where sandy beaches and hidden coves await.

Step inside and kick off your walking boots in the entrance hallway, before finding the bright and airy open-plan living space, presented to a lovely standard with a wall-mounted TV and electric fire, perfect for those cosy nights in.

Take a seat at the breakfast bar and keep your partner company whilst they rustle up a delicious feast, making use of the electric oven and gas hob, microwave and even a washing machine, which is sure to come in handy after a muddy walk!

As you tire, whisk away to the bedroom, fit with a sumptuous king-size bed and a refreshing colour scheme, where a travel cot can also be available should you be bringing your little one with you.

There is also an en-suite shower room where you can prepare for the day with a quick rinse, and end each day in style with your favourite drink within the garden, resting at the bench or picnic table, soaking up the good weather.

From the door there is a multitude of local walks to discover including the Priests Way, which leads you along an ancient track passing between quarries and across fields, with spectacular countryside views.

The town of Swanage can be reached in just over 2 miles and is home to the historic Swanage Railway where you can take a step back in time and enjoy a trip through the stunning Purbeck Hills, offering views of the iconic remains of William The Conqueror’s Corfe Castle.

The sandy beach is one of the main attractions of the town and the waters here are tranquil and sheltered, with the beach winning many Blue Flag Awards, as well as the Seaside Award.

Deck chairs are available for hire, as are pedalos, kayaks and sun beds, and the attractive promenade is lined with plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or sit down to a gourmet meal of freshly caught fish dishes.

Make lifelong memories with your loved one in the delightful County of Dorset with a relaxing stay at Sea Pink Cottage.

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: The property is located on the main road through the village and is currently single glazed.
Please note: The property does have steps internal to the property as shown in the pictures.

Please note that a neighbouring property will be undergoing extensive building works from January 2023 and this could impact your stay. More information will be available closer to the time.
