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.

Had a wonderful week in the cottage. Highlight was playing guess the kitchen utensil - an interesting collection for a rental, just a shame we didn't have a mango!

We loved this cottage, we felt so sad when leaving! It's a very welcoming and relaxed cottage, we had a wonderful stay. Perfect for a family holiday with three little children! They loved the garden, downstairs bathroom was very practical and the house was in excellent condition. Thank you!

Bringing my first 3 year old grandchild to Purbeck so she can start to enjoy the holidays our children did 20 years ago. Perfect cottage to start her on. Even the tricky stairs proved to be a fun obstacle to climb!
