Explore the magnificent Isle of Purbeck in Dorset from this exquisite stone cottage in delightful Corfe Castle. Go for long walks through picturesque countryside and hike along the scenic Jurassic Coast.

Step into this enticing cottage to discover a surprisingly bright and modern interior. Find the spacious lounge is the perfect place to relax in front of the TV, with the open fire roaring. Make your way through into the kitchen/diner, with its electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine, to whip up tasty meals. Dine together with the French doors open on to the garden. Venture upstairs to find both bedrooms on the first floor. One of these has a king-size bed and the other has bunks, together with French doors leading on to the balcony. Enjoy a cup of tea out here on occasion and gaze out towards the castle.

Lace up your walking boots and head straight out to follow footpaths through beautiful scenery. Plan days on the beach at Studland Bay, 8 miles away, with its long stretches of golden sands. Lulworth Cove (12 miles) is also well worth a visit, and the iconic limestone arch of Durdle Door, 12.5 miles from the cottage, is also a fabulous place to swim.

Wonderful location with a view of Corfe Castle from the small bedroom. Having parking for 2 cars is a bonus in this village. The long fully enclosed back garden is great for dog owners and gets a lot of sun in the afternoons. We have a week at this cottage every year. It is definitely our favourite in the village.
