Tastefully furnished, this old quarryman’s cottage boasts authentic period features on the inside and beautiful views over the Dorset countryside from the garden that will ensure you have the perfect rural getaway.
This charming 18th-century Grade II listed cottage sits in a peaceful location close to Corfe Common. Inside, original features abound, from exposed beams to a large inglenook fireplace, while the large rear garden offers spectacular views of Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills. The surrounding area is rich in natural beauty with miles of wonderful walks and a string of picturesque towns and villages.
Step inside to discover a spacious and welcoming lounge/diner. The impressive inglenook fireplace with open fire is the perfect way to warm up after a long walk and lose yourself in a good book or your favourite TV programme. Prepare tasty meals in the contemporary kitchen next door before dining at the antique table that sits in a cosy corner of the lounge. Or, when the sun is shining, step outside from the kitchen to enjoy an al fresco meal in the large lawn garden, which is bordered with mature trees and shrubs. There is parking in the village lane.
Located in a peaceful pocket of Dorset countryside, this property is just a short walk from the local pub, which serves tasty seasonal dishes and real ales. From the village the steam railway winds its way through picturesque countryside all the way to Swanage (6 miles), making for a great day out for the whole family. Wildlife enthusiasts shouldn’t miss a visit to the nearby Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve (7 miles), home to wildfowl, Dartford warblers and dragonflies, while walkers, bathers and water sports enthusiasts might prefer to head down to the sandy beach beyond.
