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.

Pet Information Your dogs are welcome at the property but we do request that they are not allowed on the furniture, upstairs or on the beds. Whilst the back garden is fenced, we would suggest that you make sure that the side gates are kept closed at all times. Dogs can be left in the conservatory whilst you are out for short periods, as long as they are not likely to be noisy or destructive. A large cage is available at the cottage for your use as long as you are happy to disinfect it at the end of your stay so it is ready for new guests We regret that puppies under 12 months, dogs with incontinence problems and cats are not permitted at this property and we trust that you will have ensured that your pet's treatment for the prevention of fleas is up to date. The garden is used by different families many with children and it would be very much appreciated that it is left clean of any rubbish and all dog waste is removed and disposed of in the dog waste bins around the village. The nearest bin to the cottage is just across the road, turn right in the direction of the castle and approx. 50 yards turn left onto the foot path that leads to Corfe Common the waste bin is located there by the gate.
