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 washing machine and freezer are also provided. There is also a ground floor WC with basin.

Narrow cottage stairs lead up to a beautiful double bedroom and a family bathroom which is newly equipped with bath, walk in shower, basin and WC. 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. It is paved and has a gravel area which accommodates the garden furniture so that meals can be enjoyed in the sunshine. A garden gate offers direct access via a small pathway on to the Corfe Castle Common. Here, children can play games and this provides an attractive rural route to walk to the village centre. There is a small adventure play area for children within a five-minute walk. The cottage is situated on the main road which links Wareham and Swanage.

Lovely cosy cottage with a real fire for the winter months, Corfe Castle has it all, with lovely walks Great pubs with good food. The added bonus for us was having the common at the back of the cottage for taking the dog for a walk. The bed was very comfortable and the shower and bath was very good. Small kitchen and dinning area but how long do yoRead moreu stay in and eat when on holiday but it is a cosy cottage with a nice out door space as well. Hide

Great homely atmosphere, would not be ideal for small kids but well situated with parking in front - not allocated but available

Wonderful cottage in a perfect location. Well equipped and clean throughout. Parking available right outside the front of the property. Plenty of shops and pubs nearby. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely visit again.

A lovely cottage full of character 5 minutes walk from the centre of Corfe and the local sites and amenities. Stone flooring in the living and dining room with an open fire in the living room add to the authenticity. Both bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Cottage location is a good base for exploring the sites around the Isle of Purbeck.

A beautiful location. Cottage was exactly as described and was a pleasure to stay in. It had everything you could need. It was very comfortable and even on the odd rainy day if you didnt want to go out, there was enough to keep you occupied. Having parking outside the front door was an added bonus. This was our third trip and hopefully wont be our Read morelast. Hide

Lovely cottage with pretty garden with access onto the common behind which was great for dog walking. Sadly the main road which the cottage sits on is very busy with constant road noise
