This spacious house is set within the charming village of Corfe Castle, home to one of Dorset’s most iconic landmarks and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful county and the Jurassic Coast

Within a mile of the picturesque Purbeck village of Corfe Castle, this relaxing property makes a lovely holiday getaway for a family or a couple exploring the Jurassic Coast and the unspoilt Dorset countryside. Offering ample space for up to four guests, this bright, spacious and colourful property is an idyllic base for keen walkers and cyclists, and is within easy reach of some stunning sandy beaches.

A few steps lead up to the house where you will find a delightful lounge/diner with wooden floor and feature fireplace. The lounge is a lovely spot for relaxation at the end of a great day – here you can sit back, catch up with a TV show or movie, read a book or chat into the night. A charming dining area is perfect for sharing a favourite family meal, opening into a light-filled sunroom with garden views. There's also a stylishly designed kitchen which is a pleasure to cook in. A short flight of stairs leads up to the first-floor bedrooms: a charming twin room with views towards the hills, and a stylish king-size room from which you may catch a glimpse of a distant steam train. The pretty back garden is enclosed and features a lawn and garden furniture, making it a lovely spot for children to play and for you to enjoy al fresco meals.

Corfe Castle is a picturesque village with a number of excellent pubs, restaurants and independent shops, all overlooked by the atmospheric ruins of the castle itself. Nearby beaches include Kimmeridge Bay (6.5 miles), Studland (9 miles) and Swanage (5 miles) – the latter which you can reach by steam train, and is home to a Victorian pier, traditional promenade and the Prince Albert Gardens. Other attractions include The Blue Pool, Dancing Ledge (both 4 miles) and Smedmore House (5.5 miles).

The Cottage is lovely. It was extremely comfortable, clean, warm and very well equipped. We had a lovely stay. The cottage is tucked away off the main road and as such is nice and quiet but the village is easily accessible on foot. Perfectly located for trips throughout Purbeck. The village has a wonderful convenience store, bakery and traditional Read moresweet shop and several pubs. Hide

Cherry Blossom House was spotlessly clean on arrival. Perfect house in superb location. Dog walks from the door, a short walk into the village with several pubs to eat in. Ideal base for exploring the beauty of Purbeck and important for us - a secure garden for our dog. Have booked again for next year.

Amazing location and house was perfect for everything we needed, even our one year old slept well! The inside has been recently renovated making it feel nice clean and fresh. Even the old boy next door was very sweet, and came out in the evenings to have a little chat and tell us what was going in in the area.
