On the Isle of Purbeck, our Dorset home provides a beautiful and convenient base from which to explore the lovely countryside to the south of the county and beyond.
The main house has been converted into 25 one, two and three-bed apartments, and there are two two-bed cottages adjoining the clubhouse building and one detached two-bed cottage nearby.
Two two-bed properties have been adapted for use by accompanied wheelchair holidaymakers, one within the main house; the other is the detached cottage.


Less than ten miles south west of Bournemouth lies the Isle of Purbeck – a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the source of the fine grey stone and unique dark green marble that bear its name. Rising steeply, in places to over 600 feet, within a mile of the sea, the dramatic Purbeck Hills create a natural barrier dominated by the striking ruins of Corfe Castle. Overlooking the English Channel on the slopes above Swanage – and with distant views of the Needles and the Isle of Wight – Langton House is set on the edge of the Purbeck village of Langton Matravers. Standing in 15 acres of grounds, and surrounded by National Trust land, Langton provides a convenient base from which to explore the beautiful countryside to the south of Dorset and beyond.

Exclusive holidays for life

An initial payment from £5,000 and a quarterly fee of under £38 (that is around £150 a year), which can increase in line with but not exceed the Retail Price Index Excluding Mortgage Interest (RPIX), gives you access to all HPB’s holiday homes. For each HPB holiday, you will pay a no-profit user charge covering only property running and maintenance costs and use of on-site facilities. The average charge is the same throughout the year, and for a studio is around £360 a week and £540 for a two bedroom property. Larger properties are also available. After an initial charge of 25% your money is invested in a fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself meets annual charges of 2.5% of its net assets at cost, calculated monthly. Your investment return is purely in the form of holidays and, as with most investments, your capital is at risk. You can surrender your investment to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances) but you will get back less than you invested because of the charges referred to above, as well as other overheads and changes in the value of the fund’s properties and securities.
