A spacious stone cottage offering a peaceful retreat to the coast with distant sea glimpses. Well situated to explore the endless attractions and seaside towns of the beautiful southern coast.
Couples and their canine companions will be barking with joy at this light and airy romantic retreat in the pretty Dorset village of Langton Matravers. Stroll through the village to the dog-friendly pub and to stock up on local produce in the village store. Take the lead along the South West Coast Path in search of the puffins that nest on the cliffs at Dancing Ledge. Head into Swanage (1.5 miles) for a doggy paddle in the clear waters of Monkey Beach or a supper of fish and chips at the harbour.
Located within a wing of the owner’s home, although your privacy is assured, your cosy holiday home has a warm and welcoming feel, decorated in neutral shades with bright splashes of colour. All on one level, enter through your private porch area where you have plenty of space to hang up coats and leads. French doors lead into the lounge where you can snuggle up on the comfy sofa and unwind after a long walk with your pup at your feet. Rustle up delicious dinners in the traditional kitchen, equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. When it’s time to turn in, head into your cosy double bedroom for a peaceful night’s sleep. Stepping outside, enjoy your morning coffee at the seating area taking in the views across to the Isle of Wight while your hound stretches their paws around the unenclosed garden.
Put your best paw forward on a hike up Ballard Down (3 miles) for spectacular views across the Purbeck Hills. Discover the scenic Dorset countryside on a memorable trip on the historic Swanage Railway (2 miles) where your four-legged friend gets their very own ticket to board the steam train. Step onboard a dog-friendly pleasure cruise from Swanage harbour to Poole to explore the bustling quayside and admire the luxury vessels in the marina.
