Close to the heart of the picturesque village of Corfe Castle, this lovely 18th century Grade II listed stone cottage is a delightful base for guests exploring the Purbeck Hills or Jurassic Coast.

This Grade II listed stone cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Corfe Castle; a village nestled amongst the Purbeck Hills and renowned for its castle ruins, thatched cottages, teashops and public houses. Honeypot Cottage is within a five-minute stroll of the village square. This is a wonderful walking area and visitors can walk directly from the cottage across the common to join footpaths to the nearby downs and to the coastal path - two miles away. This dramatic area of coastline extending from Swanage to Weymouth is part of the Jurassic Coast; England's first natural World Heritage Site The four miles of sandy beach at Studland are within a 15-minute drive and the seaside resort of Swanage is within a ten-minute drive. Here, swimming, paddling, fishing, boating and diving can be enjoyed. Swanage and Corfe Castle are linked by a steam railway which offers a real step back in time.

Honeypot Cottage is one of a terrace of stone cottages dating back to 1780. It has recently been skilfully renovated to retain the original features of wooden beams, flagstone floors and attractive windows and doors. It has been furnished and equipped with great care to provide charming accommodation for four people in two bedrooms which is centrally heated and has secondary glazing at the front of the property. On the ground floor there is a sitting room with two comfortable sofas, an open fire, flat screen television with DVD player and Freeview, an elegant dining room with a circular table and chairs; a fitted kitchen equipped with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator.

A doorway opens from the landing to fairly steep stairs which lead up to a spacious attic twin bedroom which extends across the length of the cottage and has attractive downland views in the distance. This room has a small en-suite shower room with restricted head room, equipped with a walk in shower, basin and WC. A travel cot and high chair can be made available. Central heating and electricity are without extra charge. A telephone and WiFi internet access is available

The cottage has a small enclosed garden at the rear of the cottage, and a lovely sun room with garden furniture.

A cosy base for exploring the area. As walkers and birders we got out every day despite some wet and windy weather. RSPB Arne is a must of course, and the wader roost can also be seen from the NT hide at Middlebere. Great walks along the coast path south of Worth Matravers, with white-tailed eagle and peregrine.

A lovely well positioned period cottage. Very well equipped. There is a lovely courtyard and summerhouse for days when the sun shines. In keeping with its age and in keeping with the character of the property the stairs are steep and narrow.
