5 North Street is a mid 19th century Purbeck stone cottage under a stone tiled roof located in a private lane just off the High Street, a third of a mile from the centre of Langton Matravers village. The village has a pub that serves food and a post office/small general store.
Sitting in the centre of the Isle of Purbeck, Langton Matravers is just two and a half miles from the Dorset coastal town of Swanage with its retail outlets, shops and large supermarket. Approximately eight miles away is the market town of Wareham with its fascinating history and Corfe Castle is also within easy reach and just four miles away. There is a regular bus service (just a short walk from the cottage) taking you to these popular towns, or take a nostalgic ride on a steam train with the Swanage Railway - a lovely way to see the areas highlights on a scenic six mile trip.
Located in a Conservation Area, a great deal of the surrounding countryside around Langton Matravers is classed as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From the village you can walk to Dancing Ledge, a dramatic feature on the Jurassic coast, England's first natural site that received World Heritage Site status.
