Garfield Cottage is a fine detached cottage-style property situated in a popular position in the centre of the village of Langton Matravers adjoining the playing fields and a short distance from open country. It was built during the late 1980s of traditional cavity construction with external elevations of natural Purbeck stone under a Bradstone tiled roof.

Whilst in need of some updating, the property offers well planned family accommodation with views across the adjoining playing fields to Swanage and the sea in the distance.

The village lies 2.5 miles to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage and some 9 miles from the market town of Wareham, the latter having main line rail link to London Waterloo (approximately 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The spacious entrance hall welcomes you to Garfield Cottage and leads through to the dual aspect living room with corner brick fireplace and archway to the dining area. Sliding doors lead from the living area to the South facing conservatory, which has double doors opening to the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units, contrasting worktops, double oven and hob. A separate utility room, bedroom four/study and cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.
