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.

Quirky cottage in quiet spot, 10 minute walk to centre of lovely Corfe village. Ideal for visiting Isle of Purbeck and further west. Comfy beds, well equipped. Stairs could be a problem, not only steep but a twist at the top. Parking tight for 2 cars. We love Dorset!

Overall we had a great week, walking from the door on most days to do some of our favourite walks. The beds were very comfortable. The Wi-Fi was great. We had expected soap to be available and had to go to the National Trust cottage to purchase it. We were told that there was no possibility of getting in before the 6pm arrival time, which seemed quRead moreite late to us. Then when we were on the road and couldn't possibly arrive before 6pm we got a text at 3.30 to say that the cottage was ready for us. Hide

Wynott Cottage is a lovely well equipped home and is located on a no through road away from the main traffic going through the village. West Street leads up unto the common where there are a number of footpaths if you want to enjoy couuntryside walks, the village of Kingston is a 30 minute walk away. The National Trust Corfe Castle is well worth a Read morevisit. As the weather was good during our stay we took a few trips to the sandy beach at Studland which is only around 5 miles away. Hide
