Worth Matravers, Dorset


Situated within the tranquil Purbeck Hills the historic coastal village of Worth Matravers makes an idyllic base for a Dorset holiday. This is a wonderful area for enjoying breathtaking walks with the coast just a mile away.

Swanage is famous for its glorious sandy beach which is perfect for swimming paddling boating fishing and diving as well as traditional entertainments including pedaloes and Punch and Judy. The town has a steam railway which links with the village of Corfe Castle (6 miles from Swanage) famous for its medieval castle and thatched cottages. Located on a no-through lane leading to a path down to the sea at Winspit this pretty cottage is named after the robin-sized bird that is a summer visitor.
