Traditional stone cottage, dating from the 19th century, offering attractive accommodation for six guests, situated in the small village of Kingston, offering views to Corfe Castle.
This mid-terrace cottage, which has recently been refurbished enjoys a pleasant rural location just two miles south of Corfe castle on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula. The castle itself is one of the area’s most popular attractions, and is over one thousand years old, making it a fascinating place for a day trip. To the east of the property, meanwhile, just a short drive away, the seaside town of Swanage offers an impressive four miles of sandy beaches, ideal for sunbathing, paddling, and swimming, and even offers the chance to hire canoes and pedaloes, as well as traditional beach huts and boat trips. Some twelve miles west of the property, Lulworth Cove and the iconic arch of Durdle Door, provide a wonderful backdrop for enjoying coastal walks, whilst the village of Lulworth is home to numerous eateries, making it a pleasurable place to spend an afternoon.
This traditional cottage sits in the middle of an attractive terrace and offers thoughtfully presented accommodation for up to six guests. On arrival, guests will be able to see for themselves just how much care and attention has been put into creating a sympathetically updated holiday cottage, with a wealth of period features. For example, in the lounge, a large inglenook fireplace and exposed wooden beams provide an attractive place to sit back and relax on the sofas, whilst enjoying a favourite programme or film on the TV/DVD. A warming wood burner can be lit in the cooler months of the year lending the room a wonderfully cosy glow, whilst there is also a wood-fired bread oven. On entering the cottage you are in the spacious dining room that offers the ideal space to enjoy family meals, moving through to the kitchen, guests will find a well-equipped space offering everything they will need to make themselves at home including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst there is also a washer/dryer. The first of the cottage’s three bedrooms, a twin room, can also be found on the ground floor. Taking the stairs to the first floor, guests will find the remaining two bedrooms, the first of which is the impressive master bedroom. This room offers a king-size bed, as well as a contemporary-style en-suite shower room with shower and WC. The third bedroom is a restful twin room, close to which the main bathroom offers a shower over bath and WC.
To the rear of the property, there is a spacious, enclosed garden which consists of a raised patio seating area for which there is garden furniture provided, and offers far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Steps lead down from this area to the expansive lawn, which offers plenty of space to relax and play, as well as being home to a pretty summerhouse. There is dedicated parking for one car.
