Lytchett Matravers is a large village situated on rising ground in a landscape of small valleys, open fields and woods.

It is located in a triangle formed by the A31, A350 and A35 lying approximately 7 miles (11 km) north west of Poole and 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Wareham.

The elevation gives views from many parts of the village to Poole Harbour and the Purbeck hills.

Lytchett Matravers is mentioned in the Domesday Book; the manor having been awarded to Hugh Maltravers after the Norman conquest in 1066.

The name is a conjunction of the Celtic word, Litchet (meaning grey wood), and the Maltravers name, later written as Matravers.
