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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A perfectly placed cottage - ideal for visiting Dorset. Not sparkling new and modern but cosy and comfy with a lovely garden. We had a great week, helped by perfect weather!

The best features of this property are its quiet location, beautiful spacious garden , and well equipped kitchen. As other reviews have noted it would benefit from some maintenance and renewal of effects.

Great little cottage. Big garden to run around in. It's an old building so there's some unique features (lower than modern ceilings). Owner was very helpful when we had a query and responded quickly.

Gloomy. In over 30 years of renting around the UK for holidays this proved to be one of the worst. Scores well for location for the village and for a well equipped kitchen and having a gas hob as well as for an efficient hot water system. HOWEVER it should be made clear in the description that access to the twin bedroom is via the double bedroom, aRead morend that the door between the two can only be shut properly by the occupants of the double. Overpowering smell of damp an dogs on the soft furniture. Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this cottage which had everything we needed and we would happily rent it again. I'm 6'1" and a point to consider is that I was only able to stand up straight in the kitchen and the bathroom- that is before taking account of the beams. This is a "feature" that comes with a property built nearly 300 years ago and isRead more obviously out of the hands of the owners, but any visiting basketball players ought to be aware. Hide

Great place to be, we love Corfe, as it is away from the centre it was nice and quiet. The cottage is full of character and very cosy. Lovely garden with deer!

This isn't a cottage for anybody who needs everything new and box fresh, but we loved it. The situation is ideal, it has loads of character, the garden is wonderful (apples and blackberries when we were there) and we all slept like babies as it was so comfortable and quiet.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
