This pretty Grade II-listed mid-row cottage is the ideal retreat for all the family. With a pub next door and a stunning garden, this is a true countryside getaway.

Located in the tranquil Dorset village of Church Knowle, this delightful and deceptively spacious Grade II-listed property makes a lovely getaway for a large family or a group of friends. Retaining plenty of original features including exposed beams, stonework and a Victorian feature fireplace, this traditional and cosy cottage is a charming base for exploring the idyllic Purbeck Hills and the stunning Jurassic Coast.

This welcoming and comfortable farmhouse-style cottage features a pretty lounge which has been tastefully decorated in neutral tones and makes a great space to relax in at the end of a great day out, with plenty of seating, a wood burner and TV/DVD player. There’s also a traditional breakfast room with an ornamental fireplace, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you may need. You can enjoy a fantastic meal in the light-filled conservatory/dining room which overlooks the garden and contains the cottage’s original exterior. Exploring further, there are four cosy and peaceful bedrooms – two double rooms on the first floor and two twin rooms (accessed via two separate staircases) on the second floor. From the conservatory, you can step out into the charming garden which features a pretty lawn, trees, shrubs and a small patio with garden furniture so you can enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine while admiring the views of the Purbeck Hills.

This is a fantastic base for exploring the Purbeck region, with the quaint village and ruins of Corfe Castle (1.5 miles), the popular Victorian seaside town of Swanage (8 miles) and the thriving market town of Wareham (6 miles) all nearby. Local attractions include The Blue Pool (2 miles), Lulworth Castle (6 miles) and Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve (4 miles). There’s also a choice of wonderful beaches to enjoy including Kimmeridge Bay (3.5 miles), Studland Beach (5 miles), Lulworth Cove (8.5 miles) and Worbarrow Bay (5 miles). In addition, the village playground is just 45m from the cottage.

We had a most enjoyable stay at Primrose Cottage, with three generations of the family being very comfortably accommodated. This is a lovely cosy cottage, with plenty of space and a large pet secure garden. The location is excellent for exploring the area and we can highly recommend the pub next door which serves delicious meals.

We spent a lovely week in Primrose Cottage. The weather was awful with lots of rain so we appreciated the warm, cosy, and very comfortable cottage all the more! The light and bright conservatory was our favourite room and the dogs enjoyed the garden. The cottage is well equipped and the views are stunning when the rain stopped! It was a treat to seRead moree bats and hear owls hooting in the evening. We'd recommend it as a lovely place to relax and enjoy the area. Thank you for the welcome treats! Hide

A beautiful cottage with a lovely secluded garden and good outdoor seating and a super location - right next to a good pub and close to beaches and beautiful walks. A good array of baby/toddler toys on site too. We had a relaxed stay and enjoyed it very much. The kitchen was well-equipped. However, the fittings and furniture is rather basic and getRead moreting old e.g. the mattress in one of the double rooms was incredibly uncomfortable and did not make for a good night's sleep. Hide

Great cottage with loads of amenities. Great for young children as a lot to do in the village with the swings and animal sanctuary. Lovely garden. Although the wall adjoins the pub, there is no noise. Would recommend it.

This was a perfect base for exploring the lovely Dorset countryside and beaches, and we all loved the cottage, which combines comfort and character - it's been renovated very sensitively. Lots of space for a sizable family group (in our case ranging from age 1 to age 86!), and a fantastic enclosed garden - and the large conservatory (adjoining the Read morekitchen) makes a great dining room day or night. Very well equipped too. Hide

Primrose Cottage is a very pretty cottage in a lovely village. The garden is lovely as are the views out of all the windows. Inside works very well, we liked the garden room for eating and playing games. The living room is very comfortable. Bedrooms were fine with decent storage. Would we return, certainly, and we had a lovely few days there.
