We couldn't have been happier with our stay at St Edmund's House. The property was spotless, stylish and had all the home comforts you could wish for. The garden was stunning, too. Our hosts were helpful and welcoming and I'd highly recommend this property to anyone. You won't be disappointed. Cottage rating: 5 Stars

Beautifully maintained and presented cottage. It was a perfect location for our family Christmas. The village shop, just a short walk away, is excellent and the three pubs are very welcoming. Cottage rating: 5 Stars

This beautiful stone cottage is situated in the heart of the picturesque and historic village of Corfe Castle. St Edmund’s is within a few minutes walk of the dramatic castle and the central square of the village with its charming church, local bakers, general stores, National Trust shop, public houses, restaurants and tea shops. This is a wonderful walking area and visitors can walk directly from the house to join a network of footpaths which extend westwards towards Kimmeridge and Lulworth or Eastwards to Studland. The renowned Jurassic coastline with its treasure trove of fossils and dramatic scenery is nearby. The small resort and sandy beach of Swanage is within a 10 minute drive and Studland beach with its miles of sandy beaches and unspoilt dunes is only 6 miles away. The steam railway which links Corfe Castle with Swanage is within a two minute walk.

St Edmund’s House is a substantial stone, Grade II listed, property which has been renovated with great care to retain the wonderful original features of beamed ceilings, flagstone floors and a particularly spectacular inglenook fireplace. The house has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard. On the ground floor there is a sitting room with a large sofa, armchairs, flat screen 3D television (two pairs of 3D glasses provided)/Freesat/Blu-ray DVD player and a wood burning stove; a beautiful panelled dining room with an oak table and chairs and inglenook fireplace; a light and attractive office style area, ideal for anyone who needs to work during their holiday, with desks, a printer, photocopier, phone, monitor and xbox; a lovely shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC; a superb open plan bespoke fitted kitchen with wooden units, granite worktops, double Belfast style sink, an AGA, combination microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and wine cooler; a second sitting area with sofas, a wood burning stove, wall mounted television and door opening onto the terrace. (A washing machine, tumble dryer and large freezer are available in the pretty stone cottage in the garden). All the upper rooms have lovely cream carpets. Stairs lead up to a bathroom with bath, hand shower, basin and WC plus 4 particularly charming bedrooms which all enjoy lovely open garden views which extend to the nearby downs. There is a master bedroom with a king size bed and wall mounted television with Blu-ray player, basin and an integral bath built into a pretty window recess with views of the castle and nearby hills; a second king size double bedroom with basin; a very pretty smaller double bedroom and a lovely twin bedroom on the third floor. (A folding bed is also available to enable a child to sleep separately in one of the double bedrooms). Access to the twin room is via a short, fairly steep, winding staircase. There is a powerful telescope in this view which is ideal for enjoying views of the night skies. Central heating and electricity provided without extra charge. We regret it is not possible to have a fire in the inglenook fireplace. WiFi and a telephone for incoming and free national calls is available.

One of the wonderful features of the house is the beautiful large country garden at the rear of the property. This delightful garden is fenced and has a lovely protected terrace with garden furniture and a barbecue so that visitors can relax and enjoy meals in the sunshine; large lawns and colourful shrubberies; a pretty one room garden cottage with utility items, a small covered fish pond, views of the castle. Two gateways open from the garden onto open grassland area with a footpath crossing the common to give easy access to the countryside on the outskirts of the village and in the other direction giving easy access to the nearby village square. There are three public houses, two tea shops and an excellent restaurant within 3 or 4 minutes walk. Special permits are available for free parking for two cars less than a five minute walk of the cottage. Good bus service linking Corfe Castle with Swanage, Wareham and Poole within 3 minutes walk.

The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset

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.

The Isle of Purbeck has a number of events which take place throughout the year. To find out more about local events go to our Purbeck Events pages.
