Well provided modern property in attractive location
We had an excellent family holiday in this modern, well-provided,presented and maintained house set in attractive countryside at Worth Matravers. The property is light, warm, spacious. Everything worked. Highly recommended..
Sir John Baker

The property was very clean and an excellent position
Peter
Lovely comfy dog friendly cottage.
Very well equipped and homely cottage. Martha our cockapoo enjoyed running round in back garden and cows were an interesting bonus! Lots of lovely walks nearby.
Sue Barrett
Fantastic place, lovely setting, did not want to leave.
Canaan is a bit off the beaten track but always nice going past the dairy and the cows (though the coutry aromas may not be to everyone's taste!). The owners had thoughtfully provided some basics for us on arrival which was very welcome.The house itself was lovely, well equipped, clean and tidy and very comfortable. Not the greatest of sound proofing though but this was tolerable.Clearer instructions about recycling would have been helpful, as we ended up not having ours collected.Given it is by a diary, there are a lot of flies, but again, these were tolerable.The nearby pub is good if unusual. The village shop seemed to keep very odd hours which was frustrating if you just needed basics, as this meant a car journey into the next village.Overall, I would not hesitate to reccommend Canaan as a holiday home, we had a great relaxing time there, it is a great location for travelling from and i reckon we may well go back.
Lochlan MacDonald
Well equipped cottage
A very sociable space. Able to cook and chat while preparing food. Not having a mobile phone signal caused a problem when we ordered groceries on line. We had 2 online deliveries which worked well. Useful having the landline. Very well equipped kitchen even did a Sunday roast with no problems. The owner very friendly and let us see the cows being milked and all the new calves. Garden furniture very good with enough seating for everyone. Plenty to do in the area.
Mrs E Sykes
A delightful, comfortable, spacious property in ideal setting and countryside
Canaan was a perfect retreat for our holiday with wonderful equipped kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. The small room on left hand side was so useful for our surplus bags etc. Maybe a couple of deckchairs could be available and kept there. For use in the garden. My husband and I had the upstairs twin room. I did find the wardrobe and hangers a bit lacking though appreciate the decor scheme . Also the single mattresses are getting to the end of their life. I hope this is a constructive criticism . I would definitely use Dorset Holidays again and think the layout/info of the brochure is superb.
Brenda Margereson
Wonderful, rural holiday house
A lovely house with all the modern conveniences required and wonderful open plan design. It's in a quiet, rural location with a footpath around a 100m from the house that leads to the nearby stunning coastal trails. We used the house for doing a combination of lovely local coastal walks and touring the beautiful surrounding area. The owner was friendly and helpful - he checked everything was fine with us and also gave good local advice.
David Cutting
A lovely house which was perfect for us.
The house is in a lovely location and very well equipped. There was a 'welcome pack' of bread, milk, butter and biscuits which we enjoyed and the owner popped in to make sure everything was OK.We will certainly go back there if we want to visit the area again.
Tony Matthews
Beautifull house in lovely location
As a large family, we were very happy with our stay in Canaan, Worth Matravers. Very friendly owners, a lovely house and a superb region for walks and explorations. We were happy to gather and relax together in warmth and comfort on the chilly evenings. What more can you want for a family holiday!
E Alden
fantastic comfortable property
Had a fantastic long weekend in this lovely property, everything to a very high standard. One thing that must be pointed out was that the mattress on the double bed was rather firm, but generally the house was very comfortable, especially with the wood burner alight in the spacious living area. Rather surprised by the lack of welcome pack, but the pack of biscuits and carton of milk were very much appreciated. We had such a lovely relaxing time in this very special property in such a superb village that we hope to return again later this year

Thank you for a lovely stay, in your very nice and well equipped house. Very friendly owners, who made sure we had everything we needed.It was just what we were looking for and we will definitely stay there again.

Stunning house
Great house in a fantastic location. Good walks from house finished off at the pub for a pasty and pint perfect . Visited lots of new places on the Jurassic coast we’ve not been to before . Will probably visit the same house next year .
Marie pike
A great place to stay
We had a wonderful week staying in this property. It was warm and cosy and super for our large group and 2 dogs. It was well equipped except for the lack of serving dishes. It was clean and welcoming and felt very homely.

Fab cottage in a fab location. The cottage had everything we needed to make our holiday perfect and was just about the best accommodation we have ever experienced. No doubt we will return, hopefully with better weather !
Martin White
Brilliant place, thoroughly recommended !
Everything about this place was wonderful, cannot recommend highly enough !
Mo Jaffer
First class property in excellent location.
The property was ideal for our family group of three generations. Very well equipped to a high standard. The location was great for exploring the area generally and for local walks to the coast in particular.
Peter Stas
A lovely family/group holiday home in a perfect location.
Canaan was a most impressive house, clean, well equipped and very suitable for our family, including one member with mobility issues. The location is outstanding and it was a delight to have cows pass by the door. The walking is superb and the whole area has lots to offer. We would have no hesitation in returning.
Merrill Dear
Excellent
A beautiful house and location. The house had everything and more . Charming home owner visited to check we had everything we needed and he couldn't have been more helpful. Perfect location for exploring the wonderful beaches and beauty spots in Dorset would highly recommend Canaan for a relaxing holiday for all ages we hope to return in the future.
Gill lewis

Could not fault this holiday cottage, great house in a beautiful spot.
Philippa Redfern

The house was beautiful, spacious, and very well equipped, and ideal for our 3 generation of family holiday. The location was perfect for dog walking, and visiting pretty Dorset. A really lovely memorable holiday.
Frances Scotchett
A perfect family cottage to stay and enjoy all the delights that Purbeck has to offer.
This cottage was the ideal base for three generations of our family to enjoy time together. We have been coming to the area for many years, making the most of the wonderful coast path, the nature and wildlife of places like Durlston park and Brownsea, the beaches and this year especially, the varied choice of places to eat well - from pasties and cider at the Square and Compass to the delights of The Pig on the Beach. The design of the cottage is a triumph - our toddling granddaughter could safely explore inside and out - with that added excitement of passing tractors - while we could prepare meals and relax in one communal space, making the most of the view down to Winspit. We had a wonderful week, helped by blue skies and sunshine, I hope we will be back one day. Thank you.
Wendy P.
Excellent
Canaan was the perfect holiday cottage for our 3 families, plenty of space which was bright and airy. Great location for walks and exploring the Dorset Coast. Thank you, we will definitely visit again.
Christine
Perfect Break
The house was beautifully furnished and thoughtfully equipped. The location was so quiet, only birdsong and the odd passing tractor, the latter to the delight of the three year old! Walks can be taken straight from the property to the wonderful Dorset coast.We were absolutely delighted with our choice and cannot fault a thing.
Catherine Newman
A perfect break
3 of us decided to get away from the London chaos and what a perfect place to spend it, we loved how remote it was but not too remote as the sound of the odd tractor and the cows kept us knowing we were still in civilisation. The cottage it's self was amazing, so spacious and perfect open plan so I could cook whilst the others watched a film or 2. We each had our own bedroom and our own bathroom. The walks were incredible and the village of worth matravers is a lovely quaint English village but be prepared to stock up on everything before you get there as there isn't really a supply shop and make sure you take cash if you want to visit the square and compass as they do not except cards, not that this bothered us as swanage is such a short drive away and a great excuse to pop out for some proper fish and chips. We walked into Kingston the back way which was enjoyable and tiring and spent some time in the pub there staring over corfe castle. When we go down to the area we always make sure that our first stop is norden farm so we can pick up all the local produce for our fry ups plus some very good mince, at very good prices we highly recommend stopping off there. The walks in the surrounding area of Canaan are amazing and the views on top of the cliff tops are incredible. We can't wait to go back, it will be hard to decide on something else rather than Canaan but we generally have a rule of not staying in the same place twice, however we do know we will be booking again with Dorset holiday cottages as they were great.
Harry Rose-Johnston

This is a great modern holiday home in an excellent location; beautifully presented and very well equipped with lots of walks nearby.
Stuart Nutt
Great place to stay
Beautiful house, we loved the open plan layout - lounge, dining room and kitchen all part of the same room which was very sociable. Bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of towels provided. We would stay there again.
Jonathan
Stunning House, couldn't have been better presented or equipped.
We all really enjoyed our week in this superbly presented and well equipped house. Can't think of anything we'd change apart from maybe the weather, although for the time of year I think overall it was pretty kind to us. The welcome pack was also really appreciated.
Ken Butcher
Lovely house, fantastic location
Beautiful modern house on the fantastic Isle of Purbeck. On the edge of one of the area's loveliest villages - and a short walk from one of the best, and quirkiest, pubs in England. The house has everything you could reasonably want. The sitting out area is small but sufficient and some of the country's most stunning beaches and countryside are on your doorstep.
Simon Glover
Extremely comfortable, spacious and very well-equipped modern cottage in a peaceful location.
We were delighted to find Canaan for our family holiday this year - 2016. We numbered seven, 6 adults and a 2-year-old. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The bathrooms (3) were modern and spotless, with wonderfully strong water pressure in the showers. However, the jewel in the Canaan crown is the living area which is open plan and really large with a huge kitchen area, dining area, and big squishy sofas at the living room end. The kitchen is outstandingly well-equipped. For those who cannot live without their techie toys there is no mobile coverage, but there is Wifi which, if one has WhatsApp, allows for telephone calls, the sound quality of which is clear as a bell. Obviously e-mail works too; and the tv has dozens of channels to satisfy everyone. The garden is not large but is cleverly laid out on two levels. There are two picnic tables with benches, deckchairs and a garden bench, so there is always somewhere to sunbathe or sit out of the sun. We had wonderful weather so the two lots of sliding doors could be open to the garden every day. We bemoan the fact that we only had one week there when we all really would have liked two. Canaan is perfectly situated outside Worth Matravers and in the midst of beautiful countryside where the walkers among us were out exploring daily. There is so much to see and do in the area, for all ages, that we hope to return to this perfectly lovely house one day. For two weeks, next time. Our thanks to the owners who have done a magnificent job.
Joan Polden
A wonderful holiday cottage
We had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful cottage yet again. It is simply perfect for us and our four children. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We are looking forward to staying at Canaan again next summer!
Kathryn McMenemy
accommodation suited our family really well
Lovely spacious cottage, ideal for our family get-together with two couples and a family - downstairs two bedrooms and bathroom were easily shut off from the large kitchen/lounge/dining area so suited the parents with child. Sofas really comfortable. Had a problem with the hob which seemed to have a mind of its own, but spoke to the owner about this. The area is lovely, lots of walking from there, and we enjoyed visiting Durlstone Country Park, Studland, Brownsea Island, Corfe Castle, steam railway, and Wareham. Car park prices at Swanage put us off! So much more to do in the area, we're hoping to return next year.
Jill
A great time was had by all
Just returned from a week there. Three generation holiday including a 3 yr old and 5 month old plus a dog. Both my sons and partners. The property wowed us. Brilliant layout. We could all be in the lounge area comfortably. Very well equipped kitchen. The welcome pack was good. All the family said beds were good too. Location was perfect for dog walking and some lovely views. Would definitely book again. Thanks for a great holiday. Service from dh cottages was good and efficient. Very polite and helpful when I made the booking.
Mrs S Bailey
Thank you
Thank you for a lovely stay at Canaan this last weekend. All was good and there were 7 happy guests and a dog! Thanks again

We have been coming to the area for many years, making the most of the wonderful coast path, the nature and wildlife of places like Durlston park and Brownsea, the beaches and this year especially, the varied choice of places to eat well - from pasties and cider at the Square and Compass to the delights of The Pig on the Beach. The design of the cottage is a triumph - our toddling granddaughter could safely explore inside and out - with that added excitement of passing tractors - while we could prepare meals and relax in one communal space, making the most of the view down to Winspit. We had a wonderful week, helped by blue skies and sunshine, I hope we will be back one day. Thank you.

Canaan was the perfect holiday cottage for our 3 families, plenty of space which was bright and airy. Great location for walks and exploring the Dorset Coast. Thank you, we will definitely visit again.

Perfect Break
The house was beautifully furnished and thoughtfully equipped. The location was so quiet, only birdsong and the odd passing tractor, the latter to the delight of the three year old! Walks can be taken straight from the property to the wonderful Dorset coast.We were absolutely delighted with our choice and cannot fault a thing.

A perfect break
3 of us decided to get away from the London chaos and what a perfect place to spend it, we loved how remote it was but not too remote as the sound of the odd tractor and the cows kept us knowing we were still in civilisation. The cottage it's self was amazing, so spacious and perfect open plan so I could cook whilst the others watched a film or 2. We each had our own bedroom and our own bathroom. The walks were incredible and the village of worth matravers is a lovely quaint English village but be prepared to stock up on everything before you get there as there isn't really a supply shop and make sure you take cash if you want to visit the square and compass as they do not except cards, not that this bothered us as swanage is such a short drive away and a great excuse to pop out for some proper fish and chips. We walked into Kingston the back way which was enjoyable and tiring and spent some time in the pub there staring over corfe castle. When we go down to the area we always make sure that our first stop is norden farm so we can pick up all the local produce for our fry ups plus some very good mince, at very good prices we highly recommend stopping off there. The walks in the surrounding area of Canaan are amazing and the views on top of the cliff tops are incredible. We can't wait to go back, it will be hard to decide on something else rather than Canaan but we generally have a rule of not staying in the same place twice, however we do know we will be booking again with Dorset holiday cottages as they were great.

Great place to stay
Beautiful house, we loved the open plan layout - lounge, dining room and kitchen all part of the same room which was very sociable. Bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of towels provided. We would stay there again.

Stunning House, couldn't have been better presented or equipped.
We all really enjoyed our week in this superbly presented and well equipped house. Can't think of anything we'd change apart from maybe the weather, although for the time of year I think overall it was pretty kind to us. The welcome pack was also really appreciated.

Lovely house, fantastic location
Beautiful modern house on the fantastic Isle of Purbeck. On the edge of one of the area's loveliest villages - and a short walk from one of the best, and quirkiest, pubs in England. The house has everything you could reasonably want. The sitting out area is small but sufficient and some of the country's most stunning beaches and countryside are on your doorstep.

Extremely comfortable, spacious and very well-equipped modern cottage in a peaceful location.
We were delighted to find Canaan for our family holiday this year - 2016. We numbered seven, 6 adults and a 2-year-old. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The bathrooms (3) were modern and spotless, with wonderfully strong water pressure in the showers. However, the jewel in the Canaan crown is the living area which is open plan and really large with a huge kitchen area, dining area, and big squishy sofas at the living room end. The kitchen is outstandingly well-equipped. For those who cannot live without their techie toys there is no mobile coverage, but there is Wifi which, if one has WhatsApp, allows for telephone calls, the sound quality of which is clear as a bell. Obviously e-mail works too; and the tv has dozens of channels to satisfy everyone. The garden is not large but is cleverly laid out on two levels. There are two picnic tables with benches, deckchairs and a garden bench, so there is always somewhere to sunbathe or sit out of the sun. We had wonderful weather so the two lots of sliding doors could be open to the garden every day. We bemoan the fact that we only had one week there when we all really would have liked two. Canaan is perfectly situated outside Worth Matravers and in the midst of beautiful countryside where the walkers among us were out exploring daily. There is so much to see and do in the area, for all ages, that we hope to return to this perfectly lovely house one day. For two weeks, next time. Our thanks to the owners who have done a magnificent job.

A wonderful holiday cottage
We had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful cottage yet again. It is simply perfect for us and our four children. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We are looking forward to staying at Canaan again next summer!

accommodation suited our family really well
Lovely spacious cottage, ideal for our family get-together with two couples and a family - downstairs two bedrooms and bathroom were easily shut off from the large kitchen/lounge/dining area so suited the parents with child. Sofas really comfortable. Had a problem with the hob which seemed to have a mind of its own, but spoke to the owner about this. The area is lovely, lots of walking from there, and we enjoyed visiting Durlstone Country Park, Studland, Brownsea Island, Corfe Castle, steam railway, and Wareham. Car park prices at Swanage put us off! So much more to do in the area, we're hoping to return next year.

A great time was had by all
Just returned from a week there. Three generation holiday including a 3 yr old and 5 month old plus a dog. Both my sons and partners. The property wowed us. Brilliant layout. We could all be in the lounge area comfortably. Very well equipped kitchen. The welcome pack was good. All the family said beds were good too. Location was perfect for dog walking and some lovely views. Would definitely book again. Thanks for a great holiday. Service from dh cottages was good and efficient. Very polite and helpful when I made the booking.
