Location description from owner

The Isle of Purbeck region

The Music Room, Roffy House, is located in a dell with 360 views of rolling pasture lands, just over a mile from the historic village of Corfe Castle, with its prominent and majestic castle ruins. The walled Saxon market town of Wareham to the north, and the seaside town of Swanage, with its own sandy beach and recently restored victorian Pier are each 4 miles away. The heritage Swanage Stream Railway, which operates between Corfe Castle and Swanage is a major attrcation especially the Santa specials at Christmas, when the whole village has a display of beautiful festive lighting.

The Saxon walled Market town of Wareham with its shops and auction house (Cottees) is 4 miles away.

The beautiful National Trust beach at Studland Bay is just over four miles away,and Kimmeridge and Durdle Door are a twenty minute drive along the coast.

Lulworth Castle, Kingston Lacey, Wimborne and Weymouth are also close bye.

Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle lies at the heart of an area known as The Isle of Purbeck - in reality, a peninsula stretching from Wareham in the North, towards Swanage and St Aldhelms Head on the Jurassic coast in the South.

In December 2001, the Dorset and East Devon Coast was officially recognised as one of the natural wonders of the world - the Jurassic Coastline.

This puts the coast around Purbeck firmly on the map as one of the most geologically important places on the planet.

The 95 mile stretch of coast, starting at Old Harry Rocks, near Swanage, provides a walk through some 185 million years of the history of the planet and contains a number of outstanding fossil deposits.

Apart from Corfe, there are many more delights to discover around Purbeck.

The seaside town of Swanage boasts not only the famed Steam Railway, but also offers excellent beaches and a good range of shops (large Co-Op supermarket with rerfundable parking). also a working Victorian pier with boats trip around the local coastline and to Bournemouth and Sandbanks

Nearby Studland has equally beautiful beaches and provides access to Poole and Bournemouth via the Sandbank's Chain Ferry.

Weymouth, 15 miles away, was chosen for the UK 2012 Olympic venue for sailing.

For those seeking quieter times, coastal areas including Kimmeridge, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are matched by the small villages, beautiful countryside and relaxed atmosphere, that can be found throughout the Purbecks.

To underline the appeal of this beautiful corner of England, some 4.5 million visitor days are spent in Purbeck every year !

“A charming and comfortable rural escape”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2011

The Music Room is a charming, cosy cottage with a real away from it all feeling. If you are after peace and quiet and the countryside on the doorstep then it is perfect. The furnishings and beds are comfortable, the central heating is very efficient and there is a wood burning stove for those chillier evenings, the owners will supply logs at an extra charge. The kitchen is compact, well stocked, modern and clean. The bathroom fittings are modern and there is a good shower over the bath. There is no ensuite and if you are sleeping in the upper double bedroom then you do have to negotiate the spiral staircase and walk through the kitchen and utility room to reach the bathroom. The utility room is at the main entrance to the property which is great when you return from a muddy walk. We are cyclists and loved the fact that we could cycle out from the property. It's a short ride or about a mile's walk to Corfe Castle. A car is essential, we would say. The access to the property is fine for the fit and able but might be a bit challenging for those with restricted mobility. In our opinion it would suit a family with up to two children or a couple. The owners are very friendly, helpful and keen to assist in making your stay as comfortable as possible. The area is beautiful, with lovely walks, good cycling, interesting coastline and a few NT properties easily accessible. We loved our week at the property.
