Bedrooms: 3
This detached chalet style property is situated on the popular Winspit Estate in a fine semi-rural position on the south-western outskirts of the village and commands views over open country to the sea in the distance. It is thought to have been built during the 1930s and is of traditional cavity construction, externally cement rendered under a plain concrete tiled roof with flat secondary roofs.

Whilst in need of substantial updating and refurbishment throughout, ‘Dolphin Cottage’ offers spacious accommodation in a quiet position, within easy reach of open country and the Jurassic coastal path.

Worth Matravers stands on a headland about 1 mile from the sea and is nationally renowned for its scenic beauty. The area is particularly known as a haven for walkers and naturalists and has remained completely unspoilt over the years. Four miles to the East is the seaside resort of Swanage, and the market town of Wareham is some 9 miles distant, the latter having a main line rail link to London Waterloo (some 2.5 hours). Much of the area is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline.

The ‘L’ shaped entrance hall welcomes you to Dolphin Cottage. The spacious South facing living room has a large picture window giving fine views across the valley to the English Channel in the distance and has casement doors leading to the garden. A wide archway leads to the dual aspect dining area, which enjoys similar views. The kitchen has a number of built-in cupboards, a tiled fireplace and access to the side porch. The dual aspect sun room is approached from both the kitchen and the living room.
