Sarah Silcox - Apr 2017 5 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

The manor cottage was in a lovely secluded location down a farm track and had a really good "away from it all" feel, yet was within easy reach of Corfe, Kingston and the coast path at Chapman's pool. We took our mountain bikes and had a really good ride out to Old Harry Rocks and then back over Rempstone heath via the cafe on Studland beach... followed by dinner at the Scott Arms in Kingston, which is a really good combination of dining/drinking pub.

The Isle of Purbeck is a peninsular of land located in the South of Dorset and is famous for its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. The sea surrounds Purbeck on three sides and nowhere is for from the coast. Apart from the small town of Swanage, the Isle of Purbeck is made up of small rural hamlets and traditional villages.

The North side of Purbeck is dominated by a wooded and heathland nature reserve and where it meets the water of Poole Harbour it attracts a great deal of bird life. The East coast of Purbeck is known for the two long sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage but also for the limestone pillars at Old Harry's Rocks. Along the South Coast is the start of the Jurassic Coast which is characterised by impressive coastal formations like Dancing Ledge and Durdle Door but also for quiet coves and peaceful beaches for swimming.

Much of Purbeck has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the vast majority of Purbeck remains in the hands of nature. This is ideal for walkers and cyclists who are free to explore large areas of countryside and take in a number of wondrous locations.

Claire - Oct 2010 5 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

We had a lovely holiday and were very impressed by the cleanliness of the cottage which is in a lovely peaceful location. Our 2.5 year old daughter loved going to visit all the nearby farm animals each evening and was delighted when the owner said she could pick the apples from the tree outside the cottage! The owners were friendly and clearly cared about the standard of the cottage. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Sandra - Aug 2010 5 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

We had a wonderful stay at Afflington. We were greeted by the owner on arrival, who made us very welcome and told us that we were allowed to go anywhere on the farm land. We enjoyed watching the wildlife from the garden and conservatory - deer, birds etc, and meeting Humphrey the alpaca. The steam train can also be seen from the conservatory through the trees. This is a very, very quiet getaway. Overall Rating: 5 Stars
