Attractive Grade II listed stone cottage offering sensitively updated period-style accommodation for up to seven guests, situated in the pretty village of Corfe Castle, just a few miles from the Dorset coast.

This traditional stone cottage stands at the far end of West Street, a peaceful lane less than five minutes walk from both open countryside, and the historic castle and central square of the picturesque village of Corfe Castle. The attractive square is a lovely spot with a number of shops - these include a National Trust gift shop, a local bakers for wonderful breads, cakes and lunchtime rolls, and a traditional sweet shop; plus public houses and a number of tea shops and restaurants. There is a steam railway linking the village to the nearby seaside resort of Swanage which is renowned for its sandy beach and beautiful bay. The resort has traditional seaside amusements and a variety of restaurants and cafes, plus a Victorian pier, diving school, fishing trips and boat rides. The miles of sandy beach at Studland are completely unspoilt and are also within a ten-minute drive. Corfe Castle sits at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck which offers a variety of scenic coastal and country walks.

Wyncott is an old Grade II listed property which has been furnished and equipped to a high standard to provide comfortable accommodation for six to seven people in four bedrooms. The cottage has been in the same family for several generations and has recently been renovated with great care to retain the essential character of the cottage, but at the same time provide for modern needs. The cottage has original wooden beams, an ancient fireplace, and both flag stone and timber floors combined with fitted carpets, a fully fitted kitchen and stylish bathroom/shower rooms.

On the ground floor there is charming sitting room with a large sofa, arm chairs and pretty window seat, and a wood burning stove set within an inglenook fireplace, plus a television with Freeview and DVD player; a second conservatory style sitting area with French doors opening into the garden; an open plan fitted kitchen with wooden units, an electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer; separate utility area with a washing machine; an open plan dining area with French doors opening on to an attractive paved terrace; a bathroom with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC; a single bedroom with a pull out bed beneath and fitted wardrobe.

Stairs lead up to three further bedrooms; a spacious master bedroom with a king-size bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and beams; a second double bed in a gallery-style room with large windows overlooking the garden and towards the Purbeck Hills, and a wonderful window seat offering a peaceful spot to relax with a book; plus a single room. On this floor there is also a shower room with a large built in shower with a fixed ceiling rainhead shower, basin and W.C. Visitors should be aware that the cottage stairs are fairly steep, and on the landing there are different levels. These levels are highlighted by special sensor-controlled lighting at night-time. Central heating and electricity is at no extra charge. A travel cot and high chair can be provided. WiFi internet is available.

Wyncott Cottage has a spacious and secluded south-west facing garden at the rear of the cottage.

The cottage was perfect for our stay. Its really well equipped and very comfortable. The main living room was fairly small but the kitchen has an ample-sized table for more seating.

Wyncott Cottage is a beautiful old cottage in a wonderful location. We love Corfe Castle and have stayed before with our daughter and her family. The cottage was so well equipped there was nothing we couldn't find that we needed and the granddaughters loved the garden with fruit trees. The staircase is quirky as mentioned in another review but withRead more a stairgate olaced outside the single bedroom upstairs it kept the girls (3 and 1) perfectly safe. So much to see and do, enjoy. Hide

Lovely cottage, plenty of space for the three of us. My 12 year old granddaughter adored her bedroom overlooking the garden. The living room is cosy, the kitchen light and airy, bedrooms spacious, and double beds comfy (didn't use single rooms). We enjoyed the large games compendium we found in the sun room. We would definitely stay here again. TheRead more unusual layout of the stairs could perhaps be a problem for elderly people or very young children. Hide

This is a charming and very well equipped cottage, within easy walking distance of the centre of Corfe Castle village and the start of numerous gorgeous cross country walks. The cottage had everything we needed, a lovely garden, comfy beds and parking for two cars. At night, it was blissfully quiet.

Lovely cottage in a peaceful location with great access for walking. We put the car keys away for the weekend. Good pubs and bakery but advise to stock up on groceries before you arrive.

Very comfortable, clean, well equipped, cottage. Being an old cottage the steps to three of the bedrooms are very steep. Bonus having two bathrooms. Easy walking distance into the village. Quiet road.
