About Ann Garratt

We bought 5 North Street in 1995 after several enjoyable holidays in a friend's adjacent cottage. We renovated and furnished the cottage solely for our own use and only started letting it out in 2003 having been fortunate enough to purchase number six! We love the Isle of Purbeck - it's a unique unspoilt corner of England. In addition to the beaches, scenery and walks, the Isle of Purbeck has a lovely golf course with views over Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island. It's difficult to imagine a more perfect location for a holiday home in the UK, yet only a relatively short drive from London.

Cottage was ideal.

  • 4 of 5

Grandchildren loved the cottage, close to park, pub and Adventure Farm. Swanage is 10 minutes away with good parking for the beach.

We had a very enjoyable holiday.

Full of charm and great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, tidy and had everything you need for a short or long break away. Tucked away in the village a short walk to the local pub (which is a must see), village store and post box.

Walking the coast path is just minutes from the cottage, parking is easy with its own space.

Had a lovely stay here and would return when we're next in the area.

Cottage at Langton Matravers

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay - comfortable, very clean, quiet. An excellent base for walks in all directions. A good local bus service allowed us to plan walks so that we didn't need to retrace our steps. Nearby Swanage was great for shopping, boat trips and swimming in the sea (We arrived during a heat wave!) .

Beautiful cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a quiet lane with parking for one car outside but more parking on the main rd, the cottage is decorated in character for the style of cottage cosy and beautifully clean, it is deceptively big with a lovely modern kitchen and bathroom on the back, the bedrooms are roomy and freshly decorated with comfortable beds, there are lots of original features which is delightful.

This is a perfect spot for leaving the car at home walking the coast path with beautiful views of this beautiful part of the world, the shop and pub is a short walk down the hill.We had a beautiful break and hope to return.

Gemütliches Cottage in schönem Ort

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus hat kleine Räume, aber das gibt dem Cottage eine besondere Atmosphäre und es ist sehr gemütlich. Das W-LAN ist super. Die Küche ist einfach. Außer einer Spülmaschine ist aber alles da. Im Bad fehlt ein Stromanschluss. Betten sind bequem und sauber. Nach Swanage ist man mit schnell dem Auto da.

Owner's Response: Translated to English: Cozy cottage in a nice place The house has small rooms, but that gives the cottage a special atmosphere and it is very cozy. The wireless is great. The kitchen is simple. Apart from a dishwasher, everything is there. In the bathroom is missing a power connection. Beds are comfortable and clean. After Swanage one is fast with the car. Thank you for a lovely review.

The nearest beach at Swanage is 5 minutes by car. It is ideal for families, having a long sandy beach, Punch & Judy and a small adjacent amusement park. Studland Bay, which has one of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the UK, is 15 minutes by car and has free parking for National Trust members. Dancing Ledge, a local landmark on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, is approximately 15 minutes walk from the cottage.

Distances:

Langton Matravers is a few miles West of Poole harbour, about a mile inland from the coast on the Isle of Purbeck. The seaside town of Swanage is about 5 minutes away by car. It has two supermarkets, numerous restaurants and shops, as well as an excellent child friendly beach. Sandbanks, Poole and Bournemouth are all accessible by car or bus via the Chain Ferry at Studland. The ferry runs every 20 minutes throughout the day.
