  • "A lovely property BUT: - the property sits within and is directly severely impacted by the building site and the access arrangement to the property via a derelict, dirty other building that adjoins."

    This fully detracts from the property experience. -the access building is not secure as it is open to the public as both doors are not lockable - anyone can enter - how safe is this? - what are the fire safety arrangements as there is no other way out as the derelict buildings are attached and the building site adjoins? - keeping long lawn grass for wildlife is applauded but what about recycling- only one bin provided - but we must recycle into 3 bins - as you state in the information pack and as we all should? not environmentally friendly sadly. We tried our best with sorting in our own bags in the living room - not ideal. - the TV didn't work - only on our netflix account and we reported this but heard nothing - Wi Fi kept dropping out - it is clear parking is an issue being distant and with the unpleasant access through the derelict building not easy/nice. Clearly all concerned with the letting know that the access and parking arrangement won't work until the new development is complete and bays for the rental properties delivered next to them. Years away? In the meantime the arrangement is not acceptable as others have said previously. I have a video and I am happy to share with future bookees so that they really know what awaits them and informs their decision to book this property. When all of the adjacent building work is complete and access and parking sorted out this will be a fabulous property to rent but not til then. Happy for you to discuss the return of some of our monies as we feel this would be reasonable.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you liked the property. We have ensured that the building works have been noted on our web listing since December 2022. All prices have been reduced with these building works in mind. I apologise if you found the TV and WiFi was not working well, we advise you report any maintenance issues to Dream/Sykes cottages and a member of the managed service team would have been able to attend. We do hope we get to welcome you back to Dorset again in the future. Property Owner

    However, we weren’t told that we would have to go through an abandoned/very run down construction site building to get through to the cottages. This was difficult as my partner is disabled. We also were sitting outside and saw a rat go under the wood patio which was obviously alarming. The cottage was beautiful and the design inside was great and allowed a cosy vibe.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. I'm glad you found the cottage beautiful and cosy. I'm sorry you had a difficult time reaching Sea Pink Cottage. I have bought this to Dream Cottages attention, they updated the travel directions to explain the new route because of the construction. This information was in the travel directions section of your 'Key Collection Reminder' email a week before your arrival. Dream Cottages have also organised pest control to attend. Please do let Dream Cottages know of any problems during your stay. We'd hope to welcome you to our cottage again! Property Owner

  • "AVOID, if you don’t want to stay on a building site."

    This property should not be let whilst all the building workS around it are continuing. 19 new houses and flats are being built in the adjoining building and on the land at the rear of the cottage. It was impossible to find the entrance as the instructions were so out of date. The builders kindly showed us how to gain access as you now access the property through the adjoining derelict building. You have to walk down mouldy, dirty corridors with steps to come out on a rough uneven path at the rear of the property. None of this is detailed on the listing. Parking is also an issue. The gravel area is a fair distance away and very badly signed. If you park in the lane you receive rude notices on your car by the opposite house. So the only option is the main road. This should not be currently let or at least described with updated information clearly detailing the current building work which will only make the situation worse as it progresses in time. If we had been made aware of the building works we would have booked another property and feel Skye’s are at fault over this.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback following your stay at Sea Pink Cottage. We have ensured that these building works have been noted on our web listing since December 2022.

    We enjoyed our stay. There is a lot of building work going on around it which distracts from the holiday atmosphere. Also we are an older couple and there are two steep steps from the living room into the bedroom which we personally found difficult although this I’m sure would be no problem to most folks.

    Thank you for your review and we are so glad that you found the cottage comfortable.

    The lawn was overgrown, I know they would cut it if asked, but it looked a mess. Inside was nice, good kitchen, and lounge area, but the sofa could do with new cushions as they worn and have lost their shape, not comfortable anymore. Stairs to the bedroom are steep, could do with a hand rail on one side, bathroom very nice, overall a nice cottage with all you require, I personally think once the outside building works, parking, and paths are completed it’s a nice place to stay.

    Good location for doggie walks. Shame about the building site opposite . (We did no in advance ) . luckily no noise from it during our stay. Definitely needs secondary glazing as traffic very noisy . We were considering a visit next year , but looking at all the work that will be going on I think it's unlikely. Also prices have jumped up quite a lot , considering that at certain times there's definately going to be disruption.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and glad you had a comfortable stay with its perfect location for walking. The owner takes all feedback on board has now fitted secondary double glazing. As the building works behind Sea Pink Cottage was already demolished before your stay, we are glad this did not impact your holiday.

There are two recommendations which need to be addressed, one is the step leading down to the lounge, it needs to be changed from laminate flooring to carpet, as it can be quite slippery. And also the bed is on a slope so that needs to raised up one end.

    Clean. Good sofa, kitchen and bedroom. Bed uncomfortable. Road right next to bedroom not great, with noise from traffic. Pictures are misleading. One would not know that cottage is by main road and by demolition site. Would have been corteous to take a chunk of price for this reason. Great location for people who like walking and for pets. Thank you

    Thank you for your response, I am glad you enjoyed the cottage and its location. We have noted it is on the high street clearly on the website and ordered secondary glazing to be fitted this winter. As there is no work ongoing at the site due to delays with planning permission and the surrounding area is screened off we don't feel it materially affects enjoyment of the cottage at this time.

  • "Overall disappointed with this cottage."

    First impressions make a difference - a fridge with a freezer compartment blocked and full of ice, instant coffee solid in its container, an untidy garden and approach path with numerous weeds. The external picnic table also needing renewal. To be fair the owner responded but a holiday arrival should not require such dialogue. The property was clean and well prepared otherwise. To benefit future users I would suggest the stay experience is enhanced by renewing faded towels, the provision of kitchen towel roll and dispenser, a coffee press cafetiere, a wider range of drinking glassware, a salad bowl and a shaving mirror. The wardrobe was full of cleaners equipment which precluded its full use. The property does suffer from road noise and the road facing windows at least need better glazing.

    Thank you for your response, as you mentioned any problems you raised during your stay were all resolved with one phone call within an hour of your arrival. I am glad you found the property clean and well prepared otherwise. Property Owner

    Unfortunately, at this present time, the surroundings were not good at all. It was, quite literally, a demolition site with flashing orange lights 24 hrs shining in bedroom & seating/kitchen area. Not a pleasant outlook, so no incentive to sit nor eat outside at all. As regards facilities, a small dishwasher would have added to the holiday relaxation. Would not recommend it while construction work is underway.

  • "This was not the quiet idyll that we wanted for our holiday."

    Let's start with the positives. The cottage was well equipped and just right for what we needed for 2 people and our dog. The cottage is perfectly situated for those who want a walking holiday. It is about a mile to the South West Coastal path and inland footpaths as well. It was a nice surprise to find a welcome afternoon tea as a gift from our hosts, thank you. Unfortunately...... the view from the cottage garden was of a large mound of crushed concrete measuring approx 20 foot high, 50 foot across and 40 foot deep. This rubble was obviously from a recent demolition of buildings that were nearby and was certainly not expected by us. This obliterated our view of the Purbeck Hills. The property directly next door is virtually derelict and due renovation which has started. The south face of the property had scaffold erected during our stay. This together with the mound of crushed concrete was not pleasant and certainly not what we expected from our holiday cottage. The cottage is actually situated on a main road and traffic passes within a few feet of the indoor seating area and bedroom. The traffic includes double decker buses, cars , lorries and the usual farm traffic. At times it felt that vehicles were coming through the wall! The positioning of the cottage also meant that persons walking past on the road footpath could be heard word for word. This was even the case well into the night (3am) with persons chatting loudly on their way home from the pub together with the smell of cannabis permeating through the window frame cracks. We do realise that all of the above is not the fault of the owners. We should have had knowledge of this so we could cancel. We wont return.

    Hello, I am so sorry to hear you were disappointed by the cottage, as mentioned in previous replies we have been looking into options to minimise the road noise and have decided on secondary glazing as the building is in a conservation area so we are more limited with what we can do. However we do need to wait for a gap in bookings to be able to install anything, which we will do this winter. In terms of the view, the mound of rubble has been screened off with bamboo fencing, and although it is slightly higher than the fence it is worth noting that the pile of rubble is significantly smaller and further away than the 3 storey building that was there before, meaning you can now see some of the Purbeck Hills! We have worked very closely with the building company to try and minimise any disruption to guests, we are glad you enjoyed the gifts and situation of the cottage. Property Owner

    I am so sorry to hear this, when I spoke to you at the start of the holiday, and apologised for the works (which is out of our control) you seemed quite understanding and unphased. If you had mentioned during your stay that you wished to leave, we would have arranged alternative accommodation. As you were informed by the holiday company we haven't been given prior notice of what part of the site is being demolished when and so were unable to give more details in advance. We have though given all guests the chance to cancel if they wish due to ongoing demolition works, which will be finished shortly. Property Owner

We had a welcome note from the owners with a bottle of milk, some lovely local bread, biscuits including one for the dog, however, it would have been good to know that the faulty cooker hob was awaiting replacement rather than us having to report it to them, and then discover they already knew….we had another issue with a radiator but that was soon solved the same day. The bed was extremely comfortable , with good pillows and bed linen. The village was well located for walking in the countryside to places such as Dancing Ledge, Worth Matravers (fantastic pub) and even Swanage could be reached via a track called The Priests Way. The Kings Arms in the Village offered the usual pub grub and lovely snug bars with real fires. We also visited Studland with it’s beautiful clean beaches, wild and peaceful nature reserves.

The property

Resting in the tranquil and chocolate-box village of Langton Matravers, lies Sea Pink Cottage, a beautiful and newly refurbished Purbeck Stone cottage, just two miles from the seaside town of Swanage.

This inviting retreat is a perfect choice for couples looking to escape normal life and explore the magnificent Jurassic coast.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space where you can settle down in the warmth of the electric fire and get lost in an enthralling novel, or tune into the TV and catch up on your favourite shows.

Take a perch at the breakfast bar in the kitchen area and plan your holiday itinerary before whipping up a delicious home cooked meal using all the usual conveniences of an electric oven, gas hob and microwave.

When the day draws to a close, retire to the beautiful bedroom, housing a sumptuous king-size bed, complete with quality linens and a plush duvet that is waiting to be curled up in after an action-packed day.

Venturing out from the property, you are just a few minutes from the popular “Kings Arms” public house, serving home cooked meals and local ales, as well as the village shop where you can pick up your daily essentials such as bread, milks and eggs.

Walkers can embark on adventures from the door, particularly along the Priests Way, which leads you along an ancient track passing between quarries and across fields, with glorious views of the countryside.

Swanage can be reached in just over 2 miles and is home to a long stretch of golden sand resting in a sheltered bay, perfect for taking a dip in its clear, shallow waters.

This blue flag beach has a stunning sweeping coastline with many attractions and the town is home to the prized vintage steam railway where you can experience a unique journey through six miles of beautiful scenery passing the magnificent ruins of Corfe Castle.

Sea Pink Cottage will make a fabulous home-away-from-home.

About the location


Swanage 2.6 miles; Wareham 8.2 miles.

The quaint village of Langton Matravers lies on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, two miles west of Swanage and 5 miles south-east of Corfe Castle. The name Langton derives from ‘long town’ and Matravers stems from the name of the Lord who once resided there. Langton Matravers Museum showcases the local history of the town, providing a complete picture of the ways in which the local stone was quarried and used. The surrounding area is very popular for walking and a number of walking trails pass through the village, including the ‘Smugglers Way’ which begins at Worth Matravers and then travels down to the coast path and back again to visit where smugglers were known to bring their goods ashore. The village is also home to a refreshment shop and a traditional village pub which hosts an annual Stone Carving and Pumpkin Festival.
