A well appointed house, recently decorated. Enough parking for 2 medium cars. Beds were comfy, big towels, plenty of crockery and glasses. Iplayer etc on smart TV, good enough WiFi for a teenager. 10-15 minutes walk to the village store, which was small but well stocked, and several pubs and cafes.

We really enjoyed our week here. The cottage was very comfortable, newly furnished and quiet. There is plenty of parking. We chose it because we would be able to walk into Corfe instead of using the car all the time. Its about a 10 mins walk into the pretty village, the castle and the railway station for trains to Swanage. The Castle Inn is a decenRead moret pub, 5 mins away. The Pink Goat is good for coffee or lunch. We recommend this cottage. The garden is a sun trap with furniture and barbecue. Hide

Stay for a week at the cottage, Located just of the main road, we never heard the traffic , not to difficult to get out of. There's nice pub about 10 minutes walk away and an excellent corner shop.

Had a lovely last minute stay at Rose Castle Cottage with my family including the dog. The cottage was quite spacious with all that you would every need. Plenty of space in the garden for the dog to have a nice little run. I would recommend the accommodation to others looking for a central base for a break in Dorset. Corfe castle which was a 5 min Read moredrive was most stunning. Hide

Location

Map
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.
