The village of Langton Matravers lies approximately 2½ 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 2½ hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and also incorporates a World Heritage Coastline.
During World War II, the Telecommunications Research Establishment occupied Langton Matravers and Worth Matravers, and The Coach House was itself a laboratory where fundamental Radar research was conducted by Sir Bernard Lovell, and other noted physicists. When a bomb landed nearby, the Radar research was removed to Malvern.
