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.

Nice cottage in a convenient location for Corfe Castle and the surrounding area. Good sized rooms and plenty of living space. Decor a little basic/'pine' but doesn't distract too much from a nice place otherwise. Possibly a newer to the rental market and have privately made a few suggestions to the owners.

Great location and good size property but let down by standard of cleanliness and maintenance.

Reviewed by E 26th July 2019

It's a lovely cottage, in a quiet village but it is still easy to get to the the beaches, Corfe Castle and the towns and shops. It was also a great location for local walks and the garden was big enough for the children to play in.
