Beautiful cottage, great location. Car parking worked well, I was worried about that but it worked OK and we could quickly park up outside to unload before parking. Corfe Castle is just beautiful, lovely pubs/walks and the little shop at the corner opposite the pub is brilliant! Cottage is full of character, garden is huge and lovely.

Reasonable property in a lovely village but shock that front of property borders main road. Hardly the rural idyll we anticipated. Property needs a thorough upgrade and should have at least one en suite bathroom . Not value for money

A wonderfoul cottage that we fell in love with. It has everything that you need to enjoy your stay. We also really loved and enjoyed the garden. Corfe Castle is a beautiful little willage with a lot to offer. It has a beautiful scenery and a good selection of pubs and classic English food. It is also close to other sights and experiences. In total Read moreone of our best holidays we had. Would really love to come back to stay another time and we can highly recommend the cottage and willage. Hide

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Decor, linen/bedding etc all lovely quality. Ample kitchen equipment and so much space generally for our party of five. Sampled a couple of the local eateries and would recommend both, The Bankes Arms for decent pub grub, and the pink goat for something a little quirky.

Lovely cottage for our family holiday, and great garden. The property manager Zoe was excellent and dealt with any issues we had. We were a bit concerned about the lack of parking onsite, but actually the car park is close and we were able to unload right outside when we arrived. Such a lovely spot.

Beautiful spacious old cottage in the heart of village. Warm and cosy with Aga. Very comfortable beds. Fabulous garden with access at rear to many walks. We had a great week. One downside is car parking as it is a good walk from the cottage.

Beautiful cottage and garden. Great location. Very cosy and comfortable. Unfortunately kitchen work surfaces not clean when we entered the cottage. This may just have been an oversight as we found the cleanliness of the rest of the cottage to be acceptable. Bedding and bathrooms were clean. We enjoyed our stay. A and I Leicestershire

Beautiful cottage, great location, fab garden, everything you need is in the cottage. Only downside is there is no onsite parling. A permit is given for the railway station 350yards away. Also 6pm is a very late entry time, even with covid cleaning.

Dissatisfied with this stay. Not the cleanest place to stay. Requested no pets but there were signs it was dog friendly and as one of our party is allergic to animal hair this wasnt good. Heating barely came on so very cold most of the time. Not worth the money spent.
