A cosy base for exploring the area. As walkers and birders we got out every day despite some wet and windy weather. RSPB Arne is a must of course, and the wader roost can also be seen from the NT hide at Middlebere. Great walks along the coast path south of Worth Matravers, with white-tailed eagle and peregrine. The Poole Harbour trail loop just eaRead morest of Wareham is also good. Hide

Corfe Castle is a lovely village and Honeypot Cottage is a great place to stay. It was warm and cosy and the kitchen was very well equipped. As there were only 2 of us, we only used the 1st floor bedroom and bathroom both of which were pleasant and comfortable. Parking is right outside the cottage and not a problem at all in March.

A lovely well positioned period cottage. Very well equipped. There is a lovely courtyard and summerhouse for days when the sun shines. In keeping with its age and in keeping with the character of the property the stairs are steep and narrow.

Lovely well equipped cottage. Great location with lots of walks available and short distance into village centre. 10 minute drive to Swanage and 10-15 minutes to Studland which has an amazing long beach. Back garden leads onto a field which is great if you have a dog.

Fabulous walking location, you cold stay for 2 weeks and never repeat a route. Lovely house , warm comfortable and well equipped. Note the comments on the site re: steep stairs to the top bedroom, not a problem at all unless you weren't expecting them and the en suite might be a struggle for anyone tall. Recommended without hesitation.
