Bedrooms: 2
A rare opportunity to acquire a Grade II Listed traditional Purbeck stone cottage which is situated in a fine rural setting, comprising a small cluster of similar dwellings in the hamlet of Acton adjoining open country.

No: 1 Acton Vale has been sympathetically renovated in recent years by the current owner which has created a delightful home of character. It is well presented with neutral décor throughout, offering a modern easy living style with the considerable advantage of an enclosed courtyard, single garage and garden area giving views across the valley to the sea in the distance.

The hamlet of Acton, originally built as living quarters for the quarrymen, lies 1 mile to the West of the village of Langton Matravers and about 1 mile from the sea via numerous footpaths, including routes towards Dancing Ledge, Seacombe cove and open countryside. Much of the area which surrounds the community is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much of which is owned by the National Trust and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline. The historic village of Corfe Castle is just over 2 miles away with the popular Swanage steam railway which seasonally connects Wareham to the mainline train service to London Waterloo; beaches at Studland and Swanage are nearby and the market town of Wareham is some 10 miles distant.
