About the Owner

We moved to Dorset in 2007 from Berkshire and fell in love with Worth Matravers. A long way from the bustle of the Thames Valley. We have renovated the house with care and love. It is extremely comfortable and easy to live in. Large South facing windows with an aspect over the surrounding countryside, down the valley to the sea. We live in the house for a good part of the year and so it has absolutely everything that you could need during your visit. We have a dog ourselves who loves the local walking and so we are only too happy that you bring yours too! We really love the house, the views, the village, the walks and the local food - and we are sure you will too!

Great holiday home in scenic, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location for a quiet family holiday, well located for day trips and great walks along the coastal path. The house is very bright and airy, well maintained and very comfortable. The sunny, terraced garden is a great place to sit and relax. The owners were outstanding and gave us lots of information on the property and the area before we arrived, and were generally very responsive. A fantastic holiday, we hope to be back before too long.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

3 generations had a great time at Seascape over the half term holidays.

The house is tastefully decorated and well stocked with all the essentials you need for a family holiday (washing machine etc).

The owner is easily contactable and was quick to respond to my last minute queries prior to our arrival!

My parents enjoyed sitting in the garden enjoying the views and watching my boys play happily.

We enjoyed trips to Corfe Castle, Studland Bay, the Tank Museum and a ride on the steam engine at Swanage.

All in all, a great time was had by all, and we have recommended it to friends.

Thank-you.

Highly recommend this lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

“My family and myself stayed at Seascape in September as our daughter was getting married at Durlston Castle. Apart from occupying a lovely position at Worth Matravers, we fell in love with the house! With 3 good sized double bedrooms, one good size single and all the beds are very comfortable. The added bonus was having a balcony to 3 of the bedrooms, so that you could lookout down to the sea.

Two of the bathrooms are en suite and there's also a good size family bathroom. It certainly made our stay a very memorable one, as the house has such a homely, welcoming feel, and the owners Nicki and Tony could not of been more welcoming in letting us have their lovely home for a few days. The hot tub came as an added bonus! We couldn’t have wished for a better location and would highly recommend this property!

The Groom's party stayed at their other house which is Hill Cottage, a short distance from Seascape, and we all thought it was so lovely, that we're going back to stay there in July 2016!”

The ideal holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect holiday home, for all, who would like to spend their holidays in a unique atmosphere. The location from this house is ideal for walking, climbing, reach beaches and see Sights. Everything is perfect. In the near of house you have a great tea house and pub. All the points like Swanage you can reach in few minutes. You can eat the best fish and chips there.

After your great walk you can relax in the whirlpool.

Location

From the Owner

We immediately saw the potential with this house and felt that we could make it exactly as we wanted it to be. It was extremely dilapidated when we took on the challenge but we are really pleased that we did. The views from every window are amazing. Fantastic sunsets over the hills to the West and lovely views to the channel down the valley. It is the perfect getaway for couples or families (or one really large family!) Worth Matravers is one of the most beautiful villages in England, within easy reach of London, but feels a million lies away. It is quiet, beautiful, there are wonderful walks and lovely old country pubs to relax in.

Further Details:

The house is situated on a south facing slope above the sea, on the edge of the lovely village of Worth Matravers on the Isle of Purbeck. The village is postcard pretty, a cluster of Purbeck stone cottages built around the village green and duck-pond.

There is an old-fashioned tea shop which serves traditional cream teas, lunch and supper and a nationally renowned pub, The Square and Compass, with outstanding views over the coast. There is also an ice-cream shop in the village selling Purbeck ice-cream which is made just a couple of miles away! There is a small children's play area in the village.

The cottage is situated at the heart of a number of footpaths and bridleways which criss cross the National Trust land which surrounds the village, you need never walk on a road. In fact, if you walk down the track from the cottage to Winspit Cove, you can keep walking for about 600 miles on the Coastal Path, just keep the sea to your left!

Facilities

From the Owner

We want this cottage to be a home away from home. We have decorated it simply and stylishly. It has a state of the art kitchen for foodies like us, a warm and cosy living room, with wood burning stove and windows with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside to the sea. For those who still want to be connected with the rest of the world, there is subscription Sky television (sport and Films) and internet and iPod dock. The four bedrooms are bright and airy, with brand new beds and simple crisp white bedlinen with snug duvets and down pillows. There are three bathrooms (2 en-suite) and a separate WC downstairs. The cottage is located on the edge of Worth Matravers village. The coastal path can be accessed directly from a footpath outside the cottage - no need to ever see a road.
