New Cottage for 2023

Excellent

9.8 out of 10

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.


Please note that all the first-floor rooms are built into the roof space. The central sections are at full height but the sides have sloping ceilings.

The house was delightful. Lots of equipment and well organised. Very spacious.
Elaine Parkinson - September, 2023 25/09/2023
Fab place to stay. Very well equipped. Will definitely return. Thanks!
Maycraft; Ramsden  and Northants - August 2023 07/09/2023
Excellent holiday home . Can’t remember when we stayed in one which was so well provisioned.

One of the best equipped holiday cottages my family and I have stayed in (we have been taking three generation family holidays for over 10 years). The cottage lived up to our expectations and in many ways exceeded them. Extremely comfortable.

All 3 generations were very happy here. Thank you, Graham and Barbara
Wyn and the family - August, 2023 07/09/2023
An excellent and comfortable stay, see my email dated 5 August 2023 citing a few maintenance snagging issues.
Stewart Hyde - July/August 2023 14/08/2023
Spacious and well equipped home. A joy to visit.
Helen, Joe, Alex, Max - June/July, 2023 25/07/2023
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage for our ‘staycation’. The house itself is light & airy with huge rooms, comfortable beds and kitted out kitchen. My 4 yo daughter was delighted with the range of toys on offer for her to play with and enjoyed a run around in the lovely garden (though be aware, you need to supervise as there is no fence to block it off from the road). The house itself was walking distance from a lovely play park and a 10 min drive to the sea front & train station.

I imagine it would also be a lovely place to stay in the winter as it has a stove fire and would retain the heat well.
It was also so dark & quiet at night I didn’t wake up till it got light which was wonderful seeing as we live on a lit street with cars at all hours.

All in all a marvellous place to stay, thank you so much.
Hatty, Robin & Ivy Battle-Ronaldson - June, 2023 26/06/2023
