Driftwood is a surprisingly spacious cottage located in the Dorset village of Langton Matravers, within easy reach of Swanage and Corfe Castle.
Stepping inside this property, you are greeted by a sitting room which is the perfect place to relax after a day out exploring this stunning area. This pleasant room has comfortable seating, a TV and DVD player with a good selection of DVDs and leads through to the open-plan dining room which provides an ideal social space for a family get together, with a dining table, chairs and a sideboard with a good selection of family games for a competitive night in or a choice of books for a quiet relaxing evening.
Beyond the dining room is a fully equipped kitchen, with an electric oven and gas hob, a fridge/freezer and a microwave. There is a small lobby area which provides storage for coats and boots and the door to the rear garden, and then beyond, a useful utility area with a washing machine and a WC and hand basin.
Heading upstairs to the first floor you will find the first bedroom, which has been recently changed to a spacious double bedroom with windows overlooking the front, also on the first floor is a lovely newly fitted modern bathroom with bath, shower, WC and hand basin. Heading up the stairs again to the second floor you will find a large spacious triple bedroom, which has three full size single beds and with a South facing window providing plenty of sunlight.
Stepping outside from the kitchen, to the rear garden, you can relax and enjoy a drink or meal on the patio area, then a path leads along the garden and opens out to provide an almost hidden garden, which has a large secluded lawn and patio area with garden furniture and BBQ, a perfect spot for the end of the day, to spend a relaxing evening or for the children to run around and play in this enclosed garden.
There is parking along the road in front of the property and Driftwood is perfectly placed to pop in to the friendly village pub for a drink or a meal, when you do not want to cook.
This delightful cottage provides a perfect retreat for families exploring this stunning part of the Isle of Purbeck and is close to several nearby attractions and stunning walks. It is in an ideal location for guests who want to relax on the golden sandy beaches of Swanage and Studland and for those who enjoy walking, it is within easy access to the South West Coastal Path which meanders along the rugged and picturesque coastline of Dorset.

Just back from a wonderful holiday in Drfitwood Cottage in Langton Matravers. The cottage was so comfortable with pretty much all you would expect and more including high quality kitchen utensils. The beds were very comfortable with a king sized bed in the master and two singles in each of the other rooms. A great garden which gets the afternoon sun and use of the BBQ for lovely relaxed evenings. Be mindful of the street parking, we always found somewhere to park but just not always outside the cottage. We would love to return to stay - the location is perfectly central for all the places we love to visit when in Swanage.
We really liked Driftwood Cottage and found it very clean and tidy, very well-equipped and very comfortable. We liked its relative simplicity - it felt just like a relaxed, family holiday cottage should be. Also an excellent position for walking, and families with young children would find it easy to get into Swanage, but still able to stay in a quiet, rural spot. Good value for money, too - and we liked dealing with your smaller, local agency, rather than the massive and more expensive Air b&b. In short, we hope to book with you again!
What a lovely cottage, perfect location, close to plenty of fantastic dog walks. Comfortable beds, a great shower and all the kitchen equipment you could desire.
Thank you so much for a lovely stay in your wonderful cottage. It was perfect, especially the great kitchen, the decor, the comfortable bed, the cleanliness, we appreciated it all!
We had a lovely stay, it was a bonus to be able to start a walk straight from the door and there was a good bus service as well. The cottage was just right, a well stocked kitchen, clean and nice decor.
