Tilshead would suit a large family or group of adults and is ideally positioned in the lovely Purbeck village of Langton Matravers. Within the village (and walking distance) you can enjoy a day out at Putlake Adventure Farm, dine in the local village pub or visit the small local history museum. You can also enjoy a number of fabulous Jurassic Coast country walks including the spectacular Dancing Ledge. Sandy beaches and the town of Swanage are just two miles, and the National Trust owned ruins and village of Corfe Castle is just three miles. An easy drive will take you to a host of attractions, beaches and large towns.

Fantastic Views
Very much the feeling of a family home. Lovely large property to suit our needs - excellent opened planned space with fantastic views. It was brilliant to have gym equipment and somewhere to wash muddy boots after dog walking.
Wendy Kersley - 04/03/2019
Great cottage and fab location for Pur
Lovely cottage with really good and well looked after facilities, perfect for a long family weekend with children, pet and aged parent. The underfloor heating kept the cottage warm and toasty! Good location for all that Purbeck has to offer.
Mark - 24/11/2018
lovely house in great location
We enjoyed our holiday in Tilshead. There are excellent views over the local area and easy access to walks. Very close to Swanage and Corfe Castle which resulted in very little driving. The house is lovely and provided ample accommodation for three generations of our family. It is a place we would like to revisit.
Paul - 21/09/2018
A really nice place to stay.
This was a really nice house in a fantastic location. We all loved staying here and were able to go for brilliant walks (with the dog) from the garden gate.
Dawn & Chris - 14/09/2018
Fabulous family holiday home.
We were a family group ranging in age from toddler, through teenagers, to grownups and Nana. TIlshead was a wonderful base for a lovely week in Dorset and everything we needed was provided, including all the cot, high chair, safety gate etc to make life easier for our little man ( and very pregnant Mummy). We had a wonderful holiday and would certainly return to TIlshead in the future.
Sandy Beer - 31/08/2018
Lovely house in a lovely location.
An ideal house for our extended family. everywhere was very clean and in good condition and the welcome pack was much appreciated. A small issue with the fridge on arrival was sorted within the hour. The living spaces worked very well and we loved the big kitchen/living area and large cooker. A couple of smaller saucepans and a couple of baking trays would have made it perfect for cooking. One of the best properties and locations we have visited.
C Mobbs - 10/08/2018

Fabulous House a Home from Home
Tilshead is a beautiful house, we had a lovely four days there, situated in a nice quiet road, very well equipped kitchen with a large entertaining space, nice big bedrooms, and the bathrooms are gorgeous. The views from the back of the house to Swanage are lovely, you can even see the sea on a clear day. Ideally situated for getting around to visit other places.

Lovely place to stay
We really enjoyed the whole stay. Wonderful house, plenty of space for us all, lovely welcome pack and everything worked! It was clean and modern and felt like a home from home. The walks nearby were great, the location was terrific. We loved the fact there was a key safe so we could leave the key out if we went for a walk and other members of our party could pick it up. If some kindling or firestarters to start the log burner could be left that would be awesome and maybe let people know there will only be a few dishwasher tabs. Fab place though, would definitely stay again. Thank you for a lovely stay. xxxx

wonderful house!
We stayed at Tilshead for a long weekend in May to celebrate a special family birthday What a find! The very well equipped house has so much space and was immaculate when we arrived. It was good to find a 'welcome pack' as we had been delayed on our journey, it provided the essentials for a quick breakfast the next morning. The rest of the family arrived and were also very impressed with the accommodation. What a bonus having such a secure garden so we could let our dog out without worrying he would escape. There is even a gate from the garden onto the local footpath network. The only issue we had was with the boiler which was not 100% however after a call to the maintenance man, he appeared within 10/15 minutes and corrected it (an error message did still appear on the screen each morning but my husband was luckily able to reset it so it wasn't an issue). The agent assured us that they were going to get it sorted out immediately after the weekend.

Lovely Holiday House In A Lovely Location
We were not disappointed with our stay at Tilshead, the property was very clean and had a plentiful supply of crockery, cutlery and every pot & pan you could need, although the salt and pepper pot was missing, so had to beg some salt from the neighbour to go with our fish'n'chip supper. A lovely welcome pack on arrival to set us up as well. The location is excellent with easy access to the SW coastal path if you like walking. We particularly enjoyed walking to Dancing Ledge, Darlston Country Park and Winspit, and took the car to Tynemouth Village and Lulworth/Durdle Dor which are within easy reach. Many of the pubs and restaurants take dogs, would recommend the Halfway Inn at Wareham, and there is a good selection of takeaways in Swanage which is only 5 minutes in the car. The accommodation was spacious and the beds very comfortable. One thing that needs addressing is a blind in the upstairs front bedroom en-suite shower room as they are building opposite and now have direct sight into the bathroom from the scaffolding and what will be an upstairs room in the house being built. That really was the only criticism and we had a fabulous week and were blessed with gorgeous weather for early April. If we come this way again as a larger party we will certainly re-book Tilshead, it was a shame we could only stay the one week.
Graham Stevens - 20/04/2017

I rented Tilshead for a family group including my two sons and their families. We were not disappointed with the accommodation. The cottage was more than we expected and ideal for our group. Both my sons intend to rebook at some time in the future. I will certainly recommend Dorset Cottages to my friends and in particular Tilshead for a larger group.
Dave Morrison - 21/06/2016
Great stay in very comfortable house
Had a great few nights in Tilshead. House was very comfortable and spacious and perfect for three couples with the three bathrooms. Had a walk from the place along the coast path one day straight out the back garden and across the fields. Perfectly situated for swanage or corfe and great views from inside and out too.
C Bailey - 05/03/2016

lorraine beckett - 12/02/2016
beautifully presented house
This was an excellent house probably the best we have encountered. We had concern the day after arrival over the temperatures registered on the fridge freezer for which there was no instruction manual but this was solved after a telephone call by an almost instant visit by a technician. We found the washing facilities (both kitchen and bath/bedrooms) more fashionable than practical but this would probably not be considered a fault by younger people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks!
T.C.Goosey - 24/09/2015
Easy to book and lovely house
Super house and with plenty of space for everyone, the views of the country and sea were great. All 3 generations enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Tilshead. The weather was perfect and the house exceptionally well-equipped, with everything a family could wish for. A good range of glasses, plates and cutlery plus cooking implements. Very comfortable beds and airy bedrooms. The garden was a joy, large lawn and gate onto footpath for walks. The only issue we had was with the upstairs shower, but DHC sent the maintenance team straight away to fix the issue. This was our first booking with DHC and we will return! everyone was very helpful.

Lovely Holiday House In A Lovely Location
We were not disappointed with our stay at Tilshead, the property was very clean and had a plentiful supply of crockery, cutlery and every pot & pan you could need, although the salt and pepper pot was missing, so had to beg some salt from the neighbour to go with our fish'n'chip supper. A lovely welcome pack on arrival to set us up as well. The location is excellent with easy access to the SW coastal path if you like walking. We particularly enjoyed walking to Dancing Ledge, Darlston Country Park and Winspit, and took the car to Tynemouth Village and Lulworth/Durdle Dor which are within easy reach. Many of the pubs and restaurants take dogs, would recommend the Halfway Inn at Wareham, and there is a good selection of takeaways in Swanage which is only 5 minutes in the car. The accommodation was spacious and the beds very comfortable. One thing that needs addressing is a blind in the upstairs front bedroom en-suite shower room as they are building opposite and now have direct sight into the bathroom from the scaffolding and what will be an upstairs room in the house being built.

This was an excellent house probably the best we have encountered. We had concern the day after arrival over the temperatures registered on the fridge freezer for which there was no instruction manual but this was solved after a telephone call by an almost instant visit by a technician. We found the washing facilities (both kitchen and bath/bedrooms) more fashionable than practical but this would probably not be considered a fault by younger people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Easy to book and lovely house
Super house and with plenty of space for everyone, the views of the country and sea were great. All 3 generations enjoyed our stay.

excellent
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Tilshead. The weather was perfect and the house exceptionally well-equipped, with everything a family could wish for. A good range of glasses, plates and cutlery plus cooking implements. Very comfortable beds and airy bedrooms. The garden was a joy, large lawn and gate onto footpath for walks. The only issue we had was with the upstairs shower, but DHC sent the maintenance team straight away to fix the issue. This was our first booking with DHC and we will return! everyone was very helpful.
