Description from owner

19th Century Purbeck stone cottage and summer house(sleeps 6 + 4) with breath-taking views of Corfe Castle. Perfect location for a bucket and spade beach holiday or a large family get together. Perfect for walkers too as 1 mile from the South West Coast Path. The cottage has a large kitchen - perfect for entertaining, it boasts 3 beautifully decorated bedrooms upstairs and two bathrooms ( 1 downstairs). On the ground floor there is a large but cosy sitting room with views of the village and a flat screen TV and a further sitting room plenty of comfy seating and a small TV.

The Summer House is in the garden just 10 feet away from the main house and has 2 bedrooms; 1 double and a bunk bedroom and a shower room which allows two families to stay but still retaining some privacy. The 80 foot garden hosts a patio with a Purbeck stone table - ideal for barbecues overlooking the castle. 5 mins drive to Corfe Castle and 10 minutes to Swanage and Wareham. Destination pub in the village too!

We ask for a 30% (non returnable) deposit then the balance 8 weeks before your holiday.

Further details indoors

The cottage hosts a summer house just 10 feet from the main house. You can lie in the bedroom of the summer house and have stunning views of the countryside. The cottage is full of character and has recently been restored and redecorated but still retains it's unique country look. There are stunning views of Corfe Castle from the kitchen and the patio which has a barbecue and stone table perfect for dining outside.

There are two en suite shower rooms; one in the master bedroom upstairs which has an electric loo. And an ensuite shower in the summer house. There is a roll top bath downstairs - perfect for the children after the beach or for a long soak (hot water always available). The twin upstairs in the cottage has views of Corfe Castle. There are two sets of bunks beds - designed large enough for adults.. There are many interesting books and maps are in the house with information about the well loved area. Kingston Cottage is a place you can relax and a perfect base for a weekend away, a walking holiday, a bucket and spades holiday or a celebration birthday as our dining table has extra leaves and it can seat 14.

Further details outdoors

At the bottom of the garden there is a swing, slide and a sweet wooden fort that the children can play in. You can sit on one of the 12 outdoor chairs taking in the view, while the children play (you can watch them too.) There is a small pond which for safety reason we have put wire around so children may not go in. There is a little Purbeck stone seat by the pond and you can sit quietly and watch the dragon fly's, water boatmen frogs and birds. There are two apple trees in the garden please help yourself when they are ripe. Mark the gardener may come in a mow the lawn while you are there. There is also a lovely wood in the village which is fantastic for walks and nature and bird watching we regularly see buzzards and hear woodpeckers in Spring.

“Fantastic views, clean and comfortable accommodation”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2011

The cottage was as described, very clean and accommodated our family get-together of 6 adults and 4 children very easily. However, one comment I would make is that the oven, although the hob was large, was not really big enough to cook for 10 people at one sitting! Also, there is no driveway, so at weekends you have to contend with the popular local pub for off-street parking. The garden was stunning, with lots of room for the children to play, and we certainly enjoyed the garden seating area, looking across at Corfe Castle. All in all, a very pleasant location and accommodation.
