Although we knew that the owner would be coming to water the plants, it would be less intrusive if she agreed a time in advance rather than just popping in.

We were 16 over three generations and the house and garden worked perfectly. Enough space to eat together in and out doors but also lots of small spaces to retreat to for a quieter moment or two. Corfe Castle in August is never going to be quiet, but once inside the archway, we were insulated from all the traffic and hustle. Not cheap, but for our Read morespecial get together it met all expectations. Lots to do in Corfe and close to hand so everyone had a great time. Hide

Such a beautiful, luxurious property in a fabulous location, with so much to do straight from the door. We really appreciated the very helpful owner contacting us before arrival and providing us with detailed information. We also enjoyed the very generous contents of the welcome hamper.

Fantastic stay - loved the house and was perfect for what we needed. We had everything we needed to hand and Lynette was very helpful in providing information in advance. It was so lovely to have such a big house in the middle of a gorgeous village rather than being more isolated as you often are in big properties. We would highly recommend a visit

Corfe village is always very busy in the Summer holidays. Well Court and Cottage are in the centre of the village and yet provide a spacious and quiet haven for extended family groups. The garden is extensive, well kept and quite beautiful.
