Quintessentially English thatched cottage in the heart of Purbecks and Thomas Hardy country set in a street so unspoilt it is used in period dramas.. 10 minutes from the Jurassic Coast and 10 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches of Studland bay & Swanage. Romantic, cosy and with views of the ancient Castle the cottage is steeped in history & even features in the AA guide. Decorated in a rustic style, this Cottage combines style & comfort. Centrally heated & well appointed, the cottage is the perfect hideaway with a lovely garden (including patio seating area). A short walk from 4 pubs, tearooms and the Village shop yet tranquil and private. Stunning walks and the Purbeck way are literally on the doorstep.

"Lovely cottage and immaculate but really cosy."

The only issue with our stay was the very intermittent TV reception, it just kept freezing and the wifi issue- again a bit on and off but I think that's the whole village rather than the cottage.… More

"Great location"

Lovely clean cottage very well presented. Would definitely return and have no problem recommending this lovely little house to any one. It has one draw back and that is the kitchen is very tiny, making cooking a little bit of a challenge. It is a very old cottage and so it's to be expected that the rooms are small, it didn't detract from our stay. The location of this cottage was fabulous. Having the parking permit was also a great bonus, as was the internet.
Corfe Castle is one of the most picturesque villages I have stayed in. Great walks into the centre every morning to get fresh bread from the bakers. Sadly the food in the Greyhound was very dissapointing, but lunch in the model village tea rooms was excellent. The castle it self was worth a visit and so was the train into Swannage. Studland beaches were stunning and the walk to Chapmans pool a great walk, but beware if you don't like heights, at the top of the hill (although it felt like a mountain) the view was great but scary walking down the side of the cliff.

"Wonderful stay in cosy cottage"

Recently stayed on August bank holiday. Cottage well located for castle, beaches etc.. Loved the cottage and decorated well with thoughtful items such as ipod dock radio in bedroom. Nice and clean. Owner very amenable, considerate and approachable. I came with a toddler and she can't wait to come back. Will return soon.

"Quaint little cottage, within 5 miles walk of the castle"

Fantastic holiday, with some good sunshine. The cottage is within 5 min walk of the castle, and 4 pubs all offering good food and great hosts.
Studland beach and Swange are all within a 15 min drive. Lullworth cove is a little further.
Cottage is ideal for a small family, with good living space and a nice little garden too.
