This traditionally-built detached Purbeck stone cottage enjoys a stunning location close to a historic Dorset village and makes a great base for a large family or group exploring the Purbeck Hills.

Located at the end of a no-through lane and surrounded by rolling countryside, the cottage is within 1 mile of Corfe Castle. This historic village features a variety of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs, and surrounds the thousand-year-old castle itself, which offers superb views across the Purbeck Hills. Also nearby, are the Purbeck Mineral and Mining Museum (2 miles), the Blue Pool (4 miles) and Kilwood Nature Reserve (6 miles). Heading to the coast there are many beautiful beaches, quaint coves and delightful villages to discover, including Lulworth Cove (13 miles), Kimmeridge Bay (7 miles) and Winspit Quarry (6 miles). The vibrant seaside town of Swanage (5.5 miles) has a glorious sandy beach, and a traditional promenade and pier, or you could catch a ferry from Studland (6.5 miles) to explore the stunning Brownsea Island.

On entering this beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated holiday home, you will find yourself in the large entrance hall with plenty of space for coats and boots and also the home to a piano. The bright and spacious lounge has two seating areas, one by the cosy wood burner which is set in a beamed fireplace, the other by the TV/DVD which is by a feature fireplace. The lounge also retains original exposed beams and a floor which is partially wood and partly flagstone. Off the lounge, the rear porch offers further storage for coats and muddy boots. Exploring further you will find the attractive orangery/dining room, which is a wonderful space for enjoying a family meal together, with a vaulted ceiling, oak floor, panoramic country views and French doors to the patio. The light and stylish kitchen is equipped with a range oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and a useful breakfast table. An additional fridge can be found in the utility room and there is a washing machine under one of the staircases. There’s a double bedroom on the ground floor, with a 6’ bed, which can be made up as a twin room on prior request. The bedroom also benefits from French doors which lead onto its own patio and a ground floor shower room with shower, WC and underfloor heating. The main staircase leads upstairs to three bedrooms. The first room is a double room with a feature Victorian fireplace and a 5’ double bed. This room also has an en-suite bathroom accessed via two steps, and which features a free-standing bath, separate shower and WC. There’s also a twin room and a further double, as well as a bathroom with bath and WC. A second, private staircase leads up to a galleried double room with a futon bed, vaulted ceiling and reduced height in the eaves.

The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens, with large lawns, several patios and paths on three sides of the property. You can sit outside and enjoy a BBQ or a drink in the evening. The gardens extend to two thirds of an acre and feature a dry-stone wall, fenced pond, an orchard and a woodland area with a Wendy house, swing and trampoline (use at own risk).

Perfect accommodation for a three generation family holiday, spacious, comfortable, heaps of character but with every modern convenience. We have an annual holiday together and this was the most well equipped kitchen for a large family group we have ever experienced. The garden was wonderful for both the energetic and those of us who appreciate theRead more pleasure of an established but natural garden. Hide

It was brilliant to have an enclosed garden which our dog could safely roam around in.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
