Getting around

The cottage is centrally located within the beautiful Isle of Purbeck. Regular bus services to Swanage, Wareham (connecting with nationwide Network Rail services) and Poole operate through the village, stopping close to our Front door. As well as this, the heritage Swanage Railway operates a mixture of steam and diesel-hauled services between Swanage, Corfe and (in summer months) Wareham. Of course, our magnificent scenery is, for many, best enjoyed on foot. A plethora of superb walks within the Purbeck Hills and to the world-renowned 'Jurassic Coast' can be accessed directly from Wissett Cottage. Maps and guides are available for your perusal during your stay.

“Beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2018

Would recommend staying here - beautiful cottage. Lots of space. Super clean. Lovely location. The owners have really thought about the layout of the a comodation and how to make your stay as easy as possible - little notes around the cottage about how things work, so you can get the best out of the acccomodation. Very thoughtful bottle of wine and chocs when we arrived!

“Wissett Cottage”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2017

We had a fantastic holiday staying at Wissett Cottage in Corfe Castle. The cottage was picturesque and very well equipped. It was the cleanest holiday home we have ever stayed in. It is ideally situated and we had great days out including the Monkey Forest and Corfe Castle. Altitude at Bournemouth was an exciting experience for the whole family. The owners of the cottage were very helpful and kind with all of our queries. A super stay enjoyed by the whole family.

“Feels like home”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2017

As soon as we entered Wisset Cottage it felt like home. The location is great within the chocolate box village of Corfe Castle and although the cottage is on a busy road the noise is not obtrusive. The kitchen is very well equipped for those who want to cook meals rather than eat out. The sitting room is large and comfortable and the dining room is a delightful room for eating and socialising. The beds are very comfortable (a little too comfortable). Some of the ceilings are rather low so you do need to watch your head (but this is an old characterful cottage). Kate (the owner) was very helpful when we lost the keys to the cottage.

Superb cottage. We didn't feel as if we were in a holiday let - more like staying in someone's home. Very convenient location for village amenities. Cosy warm cottage furnished to a high standard throughout. A lot of thought by the owner to provide all the things necessary for a comfortable stay. Off road parking which is a bonus in Corfe Castle. Basically couldn't be better - thank you Kate. We can highly recommend.

“Beautiful cottage in great location”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

Three generations of us stayed at Wissett Cottage and we all loved it. It's a beautiful character cottage, spacious, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen for us to cook our own meals but is close to pubs and restaurants for eating out. The owners have taken a lot of care to provide information and tips about the area. For a cottage the stairs are quite wide, which meant that my 83-year old mum could cope easily with them. Its central location in Corfe Castle is ideal for exploring this beautiful part of the country.

Lovely cottage in idyllic situation, well-appointed, couldn't be better. The location is lovely with access to surrounding countryside including Corfe Castle and Wareham. The family friendly seaside resort of Swanage is about 15 minutes away

“Beautiful cottage in perfect location”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2013

This was our second stay at Wissett Cottage, this time with a toddler, a young baby and a Granny in tow. Both times we found the property spacious, yet cosy in the colder evenings. The kitchen was modern and well stocked with every utensil we could possibly have needed. The rest of the house retains its period features but with subtle modernisation to provide all the necessary 'creature comforts.' The setting is simply perfect - within short walking distance of the centre of Corfe Castle where a couple of shops provide the essentials (and more), a few pubs and gift shops and the National Trust shop. The view of the castle itself from outside the cottage is quite breath-taking. We spent most days in Swanage where we had family staying - only a 10 minute car drive away. I think we could have easily caught the bus - there's a fairly regular service from Corfe. All in all, this was a great location and property for a family holiday - whether we wanted to stay in and make use of the TV/board games, or go out and about to explore the local area.
