    Beautiful cottage,quiet and isolated, good walks and beautiful scenery. The gift of eggs,wine, jam and biscuits was a really nice touch. Mostly ate in the cottage; underfloor heating in the conservatory did it for us. Makes the space so useable in the winter. Would definitely visit again. - Jan 2016 - Cottage Rating 5 Stars

    Beautiful cottage,quiet and isolated, good walks and beautiful scenery. The gift of eggs,wine, jam and biscuits was a really nice touch. Mostly ate in the cottage; underfloor heating in the conservatory did it for us. Makes the space so useable in the winter. Would definitely visit again. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

    A wonderful week at this cottage filled with everything we needed. Watching new born lambs and calves, birdfeeders crowded with birds, a view across lawn and flower gardens to the fields and the occasional Deer. We hiked coastal paths, Brownsea Island and Arne and enjoyed the ambiance of our cottage. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

    The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset

    The Isle of Purbeck is a peninsular of land located in the South of Dorset and is famous for its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. 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 North side of Purbeck is dominated by a wooded and heathland nature reserve and where it meets the water of Poole Harbour it attracts a great deal of bird life. 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.
