This charming stunning 18th-century Grade II-listed cottage is full of character and ideally located in the village of Corfe Castle.

Situated close to the bustling centre of Corfe Castle, this beautiful traditional cottage is packed full of style. The immediate vicinity of the property is a quiet idyll yet step a little further away and you are in the centre of the village and near the ruins of Corfe Castle. Corfe Castle was originally constructed in the 11th century by William the Conqueror and has been adapted on many occasions since. During the summer, the Purbeck Film Festival holds movie evenings at the castle which are a spectacular experience. Younger visitors will love the model village, while older visitors who remember the Famous Five books by Enid Blyton might be interested to know that Corfe Castle was the inspiration for Kirrin Castle.

A beautiful stone archway holds the entrance to this cottage and on entering through the stable door into the hall, the period features appear instantly visible. The beautiful flagstone floor is a wonderful addition which extends into the adjoining kitchen/breakfast room. The period features continue with stone walls and an original bread oven in its own inglenook, but this is mixed with appliances befitting a modern-day kitchen. The dining room is reached down two steps and has a wonderful parquet floor and feature fireplace; there are then two steps into the sitting room with continuing parquet flooring, log burner and comfortable furniture to relax in. Up the open-tread carpeted stairs there are three good-sized bedrooms, all with beams and associated reduced ceiling height. The first double bedroom has an en-suite, up three steps, and this is home to a sumptuous roll-top bath and separate shower, WC and basin. The two remaining bedrooms have wonderful views and share a family bathroom with shower over bath, WC and basin.

The front of this property is located on a village lane while the rear has a pretty cottage garden with terrace, shrubbery, trees and blooming flower beds. To fully experience the nature on offer at this property, you should visit the property’s wilder garden a little further up through the main garden.

The cottage and its location were perfect. The parking was good thought the bay number could be larger/ clearer as it was twilight when we parked and difficult to locate. The kitchen was loverly to cook in and well stocked with equipment. The door shelv in the refrigerator was broken and repaired with sellotape so I was not confident at putting iteRead morems of weight on it which reduced the capacity. The ensuite bathroom with the great roll top bath really needs a sign above the door on entering. I realise it's a cottage with low beams etc but when you enter a door and go up steps you expect there to be headroom and as a 6ft person I ended up smashing the top of my head the first time I entered nearly knocked myself out and had the bump/ lump for the following week. The log burner was great for cozy evenings. One comment would be to make it clearer where the actual heating controls are as we couldn't find them the first evening and it was very cold. We looked in every cupboard in the property near an arch and only realised it was outside and the key on the hook was for the door opposite the front door and had the boiler and controls in there, so the second evening we had heat. All in all a loverly place. Hide

WE love the cottage and have been back three times. All is immaculate and well furnished. Lovely location, with a view of the castle outside the door.

A few bulbs out and dishwasher needs a thorough clean and salt adding - i bought a box of dishwasher salt and left it there. Also cooker extractor hood prob needs a service . When we arrived it smelt a bit greasy in the kitchen. Shame there was no comfortable garden furniture to relax and garden is restricted access at the back.Pillows in the main Read morebedroom were really uncomfortable as the pillow cases were so small and the pillows are packed tightly inside them . otherwise it was really well presented and clean and well equipped.

Location

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.
