I would recommend this cottage it has extremely an comfortable bed, beautiful bed linen, good quality towels and a well equipped kitchen I particularly chose this one because of open fire, I was looking forward to lighting fire after a long drive, I was therefore disappointed to discover no wood or coal, you may want to take this into account as yoRead moreu are likely to be arriving in the evening when it will be difficult to find supplies.

Cottage is compact. It works well for two adults and a dog. It is very well placed, backing on to the Common for dog walking and an easy short walk down East Street to the centre. There are so many great walks within immediate reach. Parking right outside the front door is also very welcome. The back garden is nice to sit in on sunny afternoons.

Lovely cosy cottage with a real fire for the winter months, Corfe Castle has it all, with lovely walks Great pubs with good food. The added bonus for us was having the common at the back of the cottage for taking the dog for a walk. The bed was very comfortable and the shower and bath was very good.

A lovely cottage full of character 5 minutes walk from the centre of Corfe and the local sites and amenities. Stone flooring in the living and dining room with an open fire in the living room add to the authenticity. Both bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Cottage location is a good base for exploring the sites around the Isle of Purbeck.

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.

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.
