About Wendy Wilson
My husband and I fell in love with Worth Matravers on our very first visit and were delighted to move to the village in 1985. We purchased the original plot in 1996 and by 2002 had finished the new property to our own design that we love to share with families and friends coming to stay and spend time together .
Why Wendy Wilson chose Worth Matravers
We've known and loved the area since the 1970's and the village has that special atmosphere of sea, coast and countryside unique to the Purbecks, convenient to everywhere but with a unique and beautiful setting all it's own. We love the panoramic views from the house and the way that you can step out the front door into the most beautiful landscape, with the Jurassic Coast path at your feet, pop to the village pub, stroll to the traditional village green and duck pond but be on the beach with bucket, spade and deck chairs within a few minute's drive.
What makes this House unique
This really is the perfect house for families and friends getting together. It's architect designed and tailor-made for 3 generation families,extended family groups and friends. There's plenty of room to spend time together in comfort, and with 5 bedrooms and zip and link beds in 3 of the 5 bedrooms, there's loads of flexibility in offering space and comfort for each individual booking. We love having families with babies and children, and can provide the bulky equipment like cots, a toddler bed and high chairs as a complimentary extra to make your holiday with youngsters as hassle free as possible. Children and adults love the spacious downstairs layout, there's masses of room for kids to play and and plenty of comfortable sofas so everyone can spread out and relax. Outside living is amply catered for, with stunning views to the sea and an enclosed rear garden with wrap around terraces and seating. Plenty of off road parking too! The kitchen is amply equipped to cater for the guest number and there are lots of thoughtful extras. The lovely conservatory dining room is a super plus, with a fantastic big table seating 10 for wonderful family meals together. The sea views from the house are just amazing and altogether it's the perfect place to make happy family holidays a resounding success.

Beautiful,spacious house with stunning views
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here very much. There are plenty of local walks for exploring and the tea room serves quality food . The local pub is also very good and very handy. The house is very warm and welcoming and a brilliant place for relaxing and just enjoying the sea view.

Clean, spacious, cosy home in a beautiful location. Stunning village and surrounding area
We stayed for a 60th birthday weekend as a family of 9 and there was plenty of room. The house was spacious yet cosy and warm. There was everything we needed and more and everything is perfectly organised for your arrival.
There were books and games for our son too. We loved the village and the pub which is a 1 minute walk. Very quaint! We walked through the local village and found a lovely trail out towards the sea but it was a little far for us. The Scott Arms has stunning food within a 5 minute drive. We were in Swanage within a 10 minute drive also.
It’s a great base for the Purbeck coast and a lovely home that we would love to return to in the summer.
Wendy was fantastic and gave us everything we needed and lots of really useful information. Couldn’t fault it!
Thank you for your brilliant review Holly. it was great to hear the house was a success for such a special occasion and suited your family so well. I’m very happy you enjoyed a great stay and would love to welcome you back again. You were wonderful guests, thank you!
