    Jane Saunders -
    Afflington Manor Cottage was the perfect property and location for a family retreat. We enjoyed the fresh air, open spaces and the cosy feel of the cottage at night time once the fire had been lit. Lovely warm welcome by the owners and always on hand to help if needed. - Apr 2017 - Cottage Rating 5 Stars

    Sarah Silcox -
    The manor cottage was in a lovely secluded location down a farm track and had a really good "away from it all" feel, yet was within easy reach of Corfe, Kingston and the coast path at Chapman's pool. We took our mountain bikes and had a really good ride out to Old Harry Rocks and then back over Rempstone heath via the cafe on Studland beach... followed by dinner at the Scott Arms in Kingston, which is a really good combination of dining/drinking pub. - Apr 2017 - Cottage Rating 5 Stars

    Hazel Bryan -
    For a tranquil, peaceful and totally magical experience, this cottage takes some beating. Everything had been thought of. The conservatory was such a bonus. The cottage was equipped to a high standard, but you didn't need to be Einstein to operate anything. A pleasure. - Jan 2017 - Cottage Rating 5 Stars

    Afflington Manor Cottage was the perfect property and location for a family retreat. We enjoyed the fresh air, open spaces and the cosy feel of the cottage at night time once the fire had been lit. Lovely warm welcome by the owners and always on hand to help if needed. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

    Sarah Silcox - Apr 2017

    The manor cottage was in a lovely secluded location down a farm track and had a really good "away from it all" feel, yet was within easy reach of Corfe, Kingston and the coast path at Chapman's pool. We took our mountain bikes and had a really good ride out to Old Harry Rocks and then back over Rempstone heath via the cafe on Studland beach... followed by dinner at the Scott Arms in Kingston, which is a really good combination of dining/drinking pub.

    For a tranquil, peaceful and totally magical experience, this cottage takes some beating. Everything had been thought of. The conservatory was such a bonus. The cottage was equipped to a high standard, but you didn't need to be Einstein to operate anything. A pleasure. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

We enjoyed watching the wildlife from the garden and conservatory - deer, birds etc, and meeting Humphrey the alpaca. The steam train can also be seen from the conservatory through the trees. This is a very, very quiet getaway. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

The sea surrounds Purbeck on three sides and nowhere is for from the coast. Apart from the small town of Swanage, the Isle of Purbeck is made up of small rural hamlets and traditional villages.

The East coast of Purbeck is known for the two long sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage but also for the limestone pillars at Old Harry's Rocks. Along the South Coast is the start of the Jurassic Coast which is characterised by impressive coastal formations like Dancing Ledge and Durdle Door but also for quiet coves and peaceful beaches for swimming.

    Much of Purbeck has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the vast majority of Purbeck remains in the hands of nature. This is ideal for walkers and cyclists who are free to explore large areas of countryside and take in a number of wondrous locations.

    The Isle of Purbeck has a number of events which take place throughout the year. To find out more about local events go to our Purbeck Events pages.
