About Angela Bell
I am a retired University lecturer who like Folk music, Badminton and walking
Why Angela Bell chose Langton Matravers
This property was completely rebuilt in 2015 but has plenty of character combined with a fully-equipped modern kitchen and huge bedrooms and bathrooms. I moved to Purbeck 20 years ago because I have a particular interest in Thomas Hardy, the novelist and poet, and this is 'Hardy Country'. For many years, I was on the Thomas Hardy Society Management Committee and gave lecture tours of Thomas Hardy locations in Dorset.
What makes this House unique
There is a lovely view from the rear of the property onto the hills beyond. The private cul-de-sac is mainly traffic free, running parallel to the busier main street through the village centre and thus secluded and quiet. There are many walks from the front door to the hills or coast, plus local sandy beaches to enjoy.

In the heart of the Purbeck countryside; it is a 5 minute drive to the National Trust's Corfe Castle, Studland and Swanage beaches. You can easily walk to SW Coast Path. It is a quiet cul-de-sac but it is only two minutes from the local pub, shop & bus stop. It is a lovely walk to the famous Square & Compass Pub in the neighbouring Worth Matravers and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Visitors' Centre in Kimmeridge. There are numerous very good local restaurants including The Pig on the Beach (in Studland) and Shell Bay Restaurant which sits by the Studland Ferry and looks out over Poole Harbour and Rick Stein over the ferry in Sandbanks. There is also the open air Restaurant near the Pier in Swanage, Gee White's, which has a panoramic view of Swanage Bay. There are many pubs and cafes in Swanage and Corfe Castle.
Local attractions include the steam train that runs between Swanage and Corfe Castle.
As well as the sandy beaches at Swanage and Studland where you can go kayaking and paddle boarding, there is a newly opened water park near Corfe. A pirate ship, the Moonfleet, offers trips and training in Swanage bay. Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Weymouth, Abbotsbury (Swannery and Subtropical Gardens), Golden Cap, Lyme Regis, Monkey World near Wool and the attractions of Poole and Bournemouth are all a day trip away, as well as - at a push - the New Forest National Park. The Purbeck area itself, the setting for Enid Blyton's Famous Five novels, has a multitude of great walks and on and off road cycle rides, National Trust areas, beautiful beaches, forests, hill and down views, heathland and, of course, the World Heritage Jurassic Coast with The Southwest Coast Path running along its entirety.
