This welcoming property is set on the outskirts of the pretty village of Corfe Castle. Its inviting dog friendly garden and proximity to great walks makes it the ideal base for a family holiday.

Enjoying an idyllic location on the edge of the picturesque Dorset village of Corfe Castle, this traditional cottage makes a wonderful holiday home for families and friends. Providing ample accommodation for six guests – and with plenty of space for three canine companions as well – the cottage has wonderful views of the castle itself and is perfectly situated for exploring Corfe Common. Beautifully furnished throughout, with original exposed beams, this tastefully decorated property makes a fabulous base for exploring the spellbinding Isle of Purbeck.

A few steps lead up into this delightful cottage, where you will find the cosy, welcoming lounge.

Exploring this pretty cottage further, the charming dining room is perfect for everyone to gather for a fantastic family meal which you can enjoy cooking in the light and fully equipped kitchen which features a range-style oven. Upstairs are three refreshing, light and soothingly decorated bedrooms: two double rooms and a twin. There’s also a stylish first-floor bathroom, plus separate WCs on each floor. A patio area is directly behind the cottage, with steps leading up to the back garden and a second patio area providing a lovely spot for al fresco dining.

From the garden, the gate leads onto the footpath taking you directly onto Corfe Common. The village of Corfe Castle has a great choice of pubs and restaurants, or you can head up the hill to explore the ruins of the castle. The popular Victorian seaside resort of Swanage is nearby (5.5 miles) and there are miles of wonderful walks to enjoy across the many local nature reserves.

Beautifully situated cottage, especially for dog owners, with the lovely common just behind the house. The house is warm and welcoming. Perfect for exploring the Purbecks. We thoroughly enjoyed being there. The house has everything you need but there could be a few improvements made.

Lovely location, perfect for dog walking, however felt very tired. Couldnt use the barbecue as so rusty the handle fell off. Kitchen had barely enough glassware etc- not enough for 6 people if they were staying, and the units didnt shut. Cobwebs everywhere. From a hygiene point of view there were no basins in either toilet. We would book again, becRead moreause of its brilliant location, but felt it overpriced. Please lower the key safe. We are both 5ft 7in and had to stand on pot to access. Hide

Excellent! This is a lovely cottage in the beautiful Dorset village of Corfe Castle. It is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac about 3/4 mile from the village centre (there is a pretty walk across the common, avoiding the main road); Corfe is very busy in the middle of summer so being slightly away was a bonus. The cottage is spacious, homely, well-equiRead morepped, clean and generally well 'set up'. There is a gorgeous, large garden and patio. Katy, the host, was very helpful and great to deal with. Hide

Lovely cottage, super dog friendly with access to common from garden gate, lovely for morning walks. Location is really convenient for Studland and Swanage, but Corfe village has most things you need and is 10 minutes along path without touching roads. Nice enclosed garden with good outdoor seating.
