About the Owner

We are a local family who moved to Dorset from Berkshire a few years ago. We love renovating and decorating - our own place (also in Worth Matravers) was lovingly designed and decorated by us. This holiday cottage is our latest endeavour. We really love the house, the views, the village, the walks and the local food - and we are sure you will too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hill Cottage this New Year.

The cottage was clean, comfortable and wonderfully equipped. Although the weather was a bit wild, we did make the most of the wonderful walking opportunities and our labrador (needless to say) has been in a right strop since returning to the city.

I wrote suitable compliments in your visitors' book and will recommend you to all my friends.

Kind regards and thank you for all your help.





Thank You for a wonderful weeks stay at Hill Cottage. Sorry to miss your call on Saturday but we didn't have any phone reception when you called. We left the property just before ten to make the most of the weather down at Studland beaches.



The house exceeded our expectations (not that we thought it'd be bad so please accept this in the good manner it is intended) and you as property owners were great, knowing you were on hand but not at all intrusive.

Stunning Views

  • 4 of 5

A lovely house with stunning views. Clean and comfortable. We were dying to use the woodburner but it really wasn't cold enough. Despite it being October we enjoyed sitting on the deck in the sunshine, and then watching the amazing sunsets. Perfect location for coast walks, and enjoying all that the beautiful Isle of Purbeck has to offer. Tony and Nicki made us very welcome.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit was to this newly renovated house in 2012 so we knew what we were getting.

It is comfortable and in the most wonderful position on a hillside with a view from the garden to the sea. There are now binoculars on a tripod in the sitting room ready for viewing the passing sea traffic.

The only downside is that the two downstairs bedrooms face forward onto the parked cars. The upstairs double has the view. You will have to toss for it!

The bathrooms are always warm.

Could stay here for ever.

Lovely cottage perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastically appointed cottage. Extremely comfortable for a family of five plus grandparents.

Spacious, with lovely garden overlooking one of the finest views in Dorset. Throw in proximity to the village, tea rooms and pub, you can't go wrong.

Thanks very much

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The cottage met all expectations, beautifully decorated, well equipped and made safe for baby and little people, added to with splendid views - a glorious full rainbow over the sea at the end of one showery evening.

So well placed to visit all the attractions on the Isle of Purbeck being no more than 30 minutes drive each way, returning for relaxed evenings with comprehensive TV viewing, reading , board games and chill out drinks on the patio.

The bedroom and bathroom layout provided perfect options for parents, children and grandparents with comfortable beds and ample towelling.

We hope to make this our annual family retreat for years to come.

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent our first holiday with our 6 month daughter at Hill Cottage just before Easter and it was everything we hoped it would be. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated throughout and well equipped. The views are fantastic and we were lucky with the weather that we could sit outside in the garden at lunchtime to enjoy these! It was so relaxing and peaceful and the village itself is lovely. There is a nice walk from the village down to the coast which took us 1hour 30 (carrying the baby!) and the village is only a short drive from Swanage itself. The owners were so helpful and accommodating throughout the booking process, I definitely recommend a stay here. We hope to return soon!

A beautiful place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

I would thoroughly recommend this property, it is well equipped, light and airy - a real home from home. The garden is fantastic for children; lots of space to run around and the decking is a great sun trap. We had a fantastic holiday and really felt like we had gotten away from it all. Beautiful beaches close by and lots of activities. Worth Matravers is very picturesque - would definitely recommend the tea rooms for cream teas and ice cream. We would love to come back!

Location

From the Owner

After moving to Worth Matravers ourselves, we immediately fell in love with it. When this dilapidated property became available we saw huge potential for a lovely holiday cottage and we jumped at the chance to create a luxury Dorset haven. Freshly renovated in time for Summer 2012, it is the perfect getaway for 4 couples or 2-3 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 cottage 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.

Kingston is 2 miles away where there is an excellent pub, The Scott Arms, serving great pub food, and with a garden with spectacular views of Corfe Castle.

The cottage is 4 miles from the Corfe Castle and 5 miles from the seaside town of Swanage, which has a delightful beach. The lovely market town of Wareham, situated on the west shore of Poole harbour is 8 miles away. Arne bird sanctuary, on the beautiful marshlands that look towards Sandbanks, is a short drive away.

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 exposed brick fireplace, and wood burner and bay 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 an LCD TV/Roku, 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 (one 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.
