Large 3 bedroom 1st Floor Apartment in a quaint Purbeck Stone Cottage.

Family-friendly apartments in Swanage with water park
The picturesque village of Langton Matravers is located approximately 3 miles from historic Corfe Castle and 1.5 miles from the seaside town and beaches of Swanage. This is known as the gateway to the Jurassic coast - popular not only for fossil hunting, but also for coastal and cliff top walks with stunning scenery and views you'll remember for a lifetime.

The vast, sandy beaches and dunes of Studland Bay are about 5 miles away, and food lovers can sample fine dining at the well-known 'Pig On The Beach' there. Excellent seafood is on offer at 'Shell Bay' restaurant, whilst a short ferry ride away lies the world renowned Sandbanks, home of the rich and famous, too. There, you can sample delights such as Rick Steins Sandbanks restaurant, activities like windsurfing and paddle boarding sessions, and of course, legendary Dorset hospitality! From Sandbanks, it's possible to get a boat ride over to Brownsea Island, the National Trusts' gem within Poole Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world (Sydney being the largest). On the island, you'll feel like you've escaped from the rat race, as you discover a wealth of unspoilt nature, including red squirrels and deer, woodlands, stunning harbour vistas and all the history that goes alongside this wonderful oasis of tranquility.

Langton Matravers has easy access to country and clifftop walks - taking you to destinations including: Durlston Country Park, Dancing Ledge, Seacombe, Winspit, with its famous caves.
Also nearby, is Worth Matravers, where you'll find an 18th century pub, The Square and Compass - built in 1776, it's complete with its own fossil museum and yearly pumpkin festival, as well as serving traditional real, English ales, straight from the barrel. The pub, with its incredibly far-reaching, panoramic sea views has been voted one of the best 5 pubs in Britain! A family friendly spot that's well worth a visit.
Langton Matravers offers a local shop, post office and bakery as well as the Kings Arms pub, village church and Putlake Adventure Farm, which younger visitors are sure to enjoy.
All are within easy walking distance from the cottage.

If you love beaches, then Swanage has a lot to offer in this department with its 'Blue Flag' rating, along with a characterful, friendly, town centre. The beach is life-guarded during seasonally busy periods, and has traditional entertainment such as Punch and Judy shows on the beach, fishing and boat trips as well as fish and chips aplenty!
In addition to its fabulous beaches and seaside atmosphere, at the end of July and into the beginning of August, Swanage also boasts its major annual carnival; the largest in the South. Access to the town is easy by car, bus, or even by foot, being only about 2 miles away.
All in all, the immediate area has lots to offer - and further afield, the likes of The Tank Museum and Monkey World are within about 30 minutes drive, near Wool.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us here - we appreciate there's lots to cram in to your break, so we look forward to seeing you return time and again!
