This gorgeous Grade II listed property is located close to the centre of Corfe Castle in the heart of the wonderful Isle of Purbeck, making it ideal for exploring this stunning island and the spectacular Jurassic Coast.

With far-reaching views over the Purbeck Hills and its proximity to the isle’s sandy beaches, this stunning 1700-dated stone property fuses coast and county for a truly tranquil break. It’s close to all the village amenities, as well as the majestic ruins of Corfe Castle itself. Part of the Jurassic Coast, the area is famed for its walking trails, which from here stretch to the coastal villages of Studland and Lulworth, and up to the hilltop villages of Kingston and Worth Matravers. Dolphins and seals can often be seen off the coast at Durlston, and there are good facilities for bird watchers at the Arne Nature Reserve. The sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage are just a short drive away.

This detached property offers light and airy accommodation throughout, with many traditional features retained, including gorgeous wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace in the lounge, which contains a wood burner. The kitchen is equipped with an electric cooker and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, and two fridge/freezers, and you’ll find the washing machine in the adjoining utility room, which also has a cloakroom with WC. Enjoy your evening meal or a delicious breakfast in the dining room, which has a large table and chairs that comfortably seat eight, as well as a feature fireplace. Relax here on the comfortable sofas in front of the TV/DVD or perhaps while reading the latest bestseller. There’s also a snooker table for you to enjoy during your stay. From here, French doors open into a large conservatory, which offers another living area with comfortable seating and lush garden views. All four bedrooms can be found upstairs. At one end of the property is a spacious twin room with antique French beds, and a double bedroom with garden views. This is a zip-and-link king-size bed, which can be made as another twin on request. These rooms have shared use of a shower room with WC. At the opposite end of the house are two double bedrooms, both with king-size beds and garden views. One has a large en-suite shower room with WC, and the other is adjacent to a bathroom which has a shower over the bath, and a WC.

Enjoy the large enclosed garden, which includes a patio area and large lawn. Sit and take in the stunning views to the downs, or perhaps enjoy an al fresco dinner. Parking is available for three cars - one in the garage and two in the rear garden. Larger cars will need to park in a side road, a short walk from the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A spacious, comfortable and well-equipped house with a big garden. It is ideal for 2 families of 4. We were not bothered by the proximity to the road, as we rarely heard any traffic at all from inside. Reversing the car in to the very tight garage needs some care! Corfe is a great location to explore the Isle of Purbeck and beyond, with lots of greRead moreat places to visit close by. Two of the bathrooms have electric showers - water flow is affected if any other water is used e.g loos/dishwasher. Hide

Comfortable, cosy, immaculately clean cottage with real attention to detail, with some beautiful Christmas touches throughout. The location was perfect with a short walk to the square and short drive to the coast. Staying here made our Christmas, one of the best, we will be back.

It's a beautiful cottage and very comfy for 8 people. Everyone had bedroom privacy. The bathrooms are lovely and we enjoyed eating in the dining room in the evening. Staying in late October the wood burner was wonderful.

Stunning location in a beautiful village. House is spacious, as are the grounds. Well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Excellent welcome book giving useful information about the house and local services. The property is on a main road however the noise from traffic is minimal. Highly recommend this abode and location.

A very soggy week in October with my wife and parents but still had a great time thanks to Purbeck House! I bit damp to use the wealth of games available in the garden (all supplied) but the facilities in the house were excellent. Spent the evenings teaching my dad how to play snooker (although he may say it was the other way around) and the days tRead moreravelling around Purbeck. What could have been a washout was quite the opposite thanks to the space and facilities very thoughtfully provided. Hide

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.
