  • "We had some disruption due to building work, but the owners were very supportive, and it did not really bother much However, we did find s shortage of pans, and some other cooking equipment."

    Not bad enough to spoil the week. All in all a excellent holiday

    We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your break. Thank you for your feedback, we've added some new saucepans and other kitchen equipment which needed renewing in response. Property Owner

  • "2 weeks prior to arriving was informed of "building works" on Old Malt House Lane which would affect car parking but not our holiday."

    ..... turned out to be a demolition site right beside the entrance and garden to the cottage, spoilt view, dust and noise... found out being demolished to build 19 new houses so work will be going on for some time!!! If it hadnt been for the coastal walks etc would have left early. Very disapointed was not informed of this.

    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

  • "Sea Pink cottage is a great location, it is just over 2 miles from Swanage The cottage was very clean, warm and nicely decorated."

    At the moment there are building works going on in the main house which did not disturb us at all. The garden is enclosed and very suitable for our young beagle.There is good Wi-Fi connection and good phone signal, a good telly with Netflix etc and a radio. There is a washing machine and well equipped kitchen. A cream tea was left for us which was much appreciated The only problem was the noise from the cars and buses going passed the bedroom and sitting room windows. Maybe some blackout curtain liners in the bedroom could help. Over all we really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend a visit

    Thank you for your feedback. We have now fitted a blackout blind in the bedroom while we look at options for double glazing. The house is in a conservation area and the windows are very unique and part of the character of the building so we want to make sure we do it in a way that is as sympathetic as possible and permitted by the council, while not interfering too much with our guests.

  • "Lovely cottage, beautifully renovated and very comfortable."

    Conveniently placed for exploring surrounding villages and Swanage. The passing busses amused us rather than annoyed. Perhaps people would prefer to know it backs onto the main rd? Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it but will mention being on the main rd. Many thanks Donna and Mike.

  • "This was one of the best UK cottage stays we have ever had."

    Sea Pink Cottage was quite spacious (nice high ceilings) but still really cosy and beautifully warm. The bed was super comfy and most inviting! The cottage was very well equipped with everything we could want and the instructions provided were extensive and helpful. The location is perfect - so close to the Coast Path for exercising our dog and with the local pub a short walk away. The small fenced garden was also a great advantage for our dog and would be lovely on a warmer and sunnier day than mid January offers! Would definitely return.

  • "Clean, cosy and comfortable little cottage."

    There was some road noise due to the cottage being next to the main road through the village and having single glazing. The cottage came well equipped although one small toilet roll did not last long, future visitors should be advised to bring their own supply. 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.

  • "Fabulous cottage let down by road noise and also headlights through thin curtains."

    Beautifully furnished, clean, warm and well equipped with a very comfortable bed but single glazed traditional windows in both rooms face right onto a road to Swanage. The website map marker was on the wrong side-road and does not show the proximity to the road. The directions were very poor for arrival in the dark, without even the private road's name on the address. Pretty views across fields. Kind welcome provisions of milk, bread, biscuits and tea & coffee.

  • "Lovely clean cottage in great location for waking from the door."

    Extremely comfortable bed and great pillows. Would have been good to be able to arrive a bit earlier, 5pm seemed very late in the day We had a fab time.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We have now moved the check in time to 4pm (unfortunately we can't move it back any earlier at the housekeepers have to do multiple houses on a Friday). Property Owner

  • "Lovely place to stay and lovely walks to go on."

    Had all you needed in the property. Would definitely book again. Took our dog so very suitable for him and enjoyed the long walks. Though was a little disappointed with local pub only went in once and probably wouldn’t go again. Also the times to book in which was 5pm and to be out by 10am on leaving day. Feel would be better for 3pm and perhaps 11am to leave, understand re COVID though feel it dies need 7 hours cleaning time as you leave as you find and even a deep clean wouldn’t take that long with the size of property. Ending on a positive gorgeous views and really enjoyed our stay

  • "We spent a thoroughly relaxing fortnight during August/September at this splendid cottage that has been tastefully converted."

    It is well equipped and furnished to a high standard and is light and airy for a small cottage. The high ceilings and large windows at the front add to this effect. It is also very well maintained. The garden that is accessed round the rear of The Old Malthouse and is the main entrance to the cottage is pleasant and spacious and also very peaceful. We had our golden retriever with us and were fortunate to have good weather throughout our stay. If he had needed to be washed (which he didn’t) before going indoors there was a tap available on the Malthouse building although a hose and adapter would be needed. The walks directly from the cottage are numerous and those particularly towards the coastal path are a treat with glorious scenery in every direction. We holiday in Purbeck regularly and have done for many years. It never fails to deliver. We can certainly recommend this cottage for a happy vacation. Nick & Caroline, Suffolk

    Has everything you will need for your stay well stocked kitchen. Love the personal touch of a welcome basket with Artisan bread and cake. The treats for our dog went down well, and a couple of pods for the Neprosso machine was also a great thought. The cottage us situated in a great location for walks and local attractions. Thanks for a lovely stay we would highly recommend this cottage and will be back

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 for you and your better half.

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. Resting on the outside of the village is Dancing Ledge, an old cliff quarry which offers breath-taking views of the coast. Those who are looking for adventure can even climb the rock face or coasteer at the Ledge.
