Orchid House

Step out of Orchid House and, within 30 seconds, you can be in the open National Trust land and on one of the many paths crossing these fields and leading to the South West Coast Path and the spectacular coastline. Turn the other way and you soon reach footpaths across fields to Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills, or the village centre with its pub, museum and adventure farm.

This spacious, family and dog-friendly holiday accommodation boasts four well-appointed bedrooms, great private garden complete with outdoor furniture & BBQ, and easy access to the most breath-taking coastal walks of South Dorset.

Children are very welcome and catered for through the provision of baby and toddler equipment and games, books and toys, including beach toys.

Leave your car in a large driveway with off-road parking for three cars, before entering this wonderful Purbeck stone house. You will be greeted by a wide hallway with a built-in wardrobe for your coats and shoes.

Further to your right there is a spacious, light-filled living area with a Purbeck marble fireplace a smart TV, comfy sofas to seat 8 and many books, games and DVDs to enjoy on a cosy night in by the woodburning stove. Open the patio doors to let the sunshine in and enjoy an al fresco meal in the large sunny garden complete with garden furniture and a BBQ.

Settle down to savour a glass of wine at the large dining table, whilst a delicious meal is being prepared in a well-equipped country style kitchen next door. Just off the kitchen is a garage where the washing machine and tumble dryer are located. It’s also the ideal space to store your bicycles and walking boots.
There is a downstairs WC with hand basin.

Completing the ground floor is a cosy twin bedroom – great for little ones or adults alike.

Venturing upstairs, you will find the rest of the bedrooms, all with king-size beds, lovingly presented in warm tones and fully equipped for a relaxing home from home getaway. All have fitted wardrobes, full length mirrors and bedside tables with lamps.

The first bedroom also has a TV, a chest of drawers and a comfy sofa. It features some fantastic views out to Purbeck fields, Swanage bay and the Isle of Wight.

The spacious master bedroom will not disappoint, enhanced by views of the surrounding fields. The beautifully presented king size bed is in the centre of the room with built in drawers on both sides of the bed. A fabulous ensuite shower room is accessed via the master bedroom.

The third bedroom on the first floor has fitted wardrobes, providing ample shelving and hanging space.

The main family bathroom is to the right off the landing at the top of the stairs, complete with a full-size bath with overhead shower and a WC.

The house is beautifully presented in a country style with touches of warm colours and oak furniture. Discover photographic prints throughout the house, taken by the owner, mainly reflecting the beautiful Dorset landscape.

Orchid House is ideally positioned in the pretty Purbeck village of Langton Matravers. Wander to the local Kings Arms public house whenever you fancy a pub lunch or a pint. There you will find Trevor’s Deli, with local produce and some essential supplies. From the path beside the house, it is an easy walk to Worth Matravers, where a pint and pasty at the iconic Square & Compass pub is a ritual for many visitors.

Purbeck is packed with scenic hills, fantastic beaches, a spectacular coastline, good fossil hunting, fauna and pretty flora, including wild orchids - all to be discovered from the doorstep of Orchid House.

The well-known Dancing Ledge is about a 20 minute walk away and evidence of the purbeck stone quarrying history adds interest to local walks – as do the dinosaur footprints to be found within a kilometre of the house. The legendary Swanage Steam Railway is easily accessible and its whistle can be heard from the garden.
Within a short drive, explore nearby attractions and iconic landmarks such as Corfe Castle, Tyneham deserted village, Arne RSPB reserve and Saxon-walled Wareham. Slightly further afield, you can visit Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth or Dorchester. Take a ferry from Studland to sunny Sandbanks or the famous Brownsea Island Nature Reserve, home of the red squirrel.

For a fun day out with the kids, you could venture to Monkey World, The Tank Museum, Etches Fossil Collection or Farmer Palmers and be sure to visit Putlake Adventure Farm with its tearoom and the Purbeck Stone Museum, both in Langton Matravers itself – plenty of activities to keep you and your children occupied, whatever the weather.
