Simmons Family - 1st July 2017 - Beautiful cottage, great location and the weather was perfect. The beds are extremely comfortable and the showers and overall facilities are wonderful. We would definitely recommend Wyncott Cottage to family and friends. Thanks for a lovely holiday, this is a cottage hard to beat.

Franklin - 24 June 2017 - Delightful cottage, perfect place for a holiday. Lovely garden, will come again. Tank Museum very good for adults and children.

The Goulds 9th - 15th April 2017 - This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in by far! Wyncott Cottage has everything we needed and is extremely cosy and characterful. Corfe is a very lovely village and if you are eating out we would definitely recommend the Greyhound - they do great pizza! We would definitely recommend, thank you for your hospitality.

The Kingsburys 4th – 8th March 2017 - The cottage is truly charming and well appointed, and very carefully extended/refurbished. You must have had a talented architect and builder. Weather was quite a mixture and allowed us to visit Durdle Door, Studland, Swanage, Worth Matravers (with St Aldhelm’s Head). It’s just the right distance to walk into Corfe.

The Buyans 11th – 18th February 2017 - Our first time staying at the cottage was one to remember. Thank you for helping to make it a wonderful week in Corfe. Just perfect, relaxing week – even the weather was good for February!

The Shepherds 24th – 29th December 2016 - Thank you so much for another lovely stay in this wonderful space, a real delight.

The Johnsons 24th – 27th December 2016 - A lovely place to spend Christmas! The garden room is especially nice and peaceful as a place to retreat with a book.

Judith, Philip and Olivia Horne 11 – 18 April 2015 - "This was our second visit to the cottage and we would happily come again. The cottage is so elegantly equipped and we enjoyed both staying in and going out."

The Butler Family 5 – 12 April 2015 - "Fabulous stay in a comfortable, well appointed cottage – super Easter egg hunt in the garden – kids have loved it."

Andy, Lynne, Lauren and Evan 28 March – 4 April 2015 - "Lovely warm and well-equipped cottage – one of the best we’ve stayed at in Corfe (and we’ve stayed in a lot!) Particularly appreciated the ‘welcome pack’ on arrival.

The Beyer Family Christmas 2014 - "Great cottage for Christmas. Good base for walks, train and castle!"

The Dakin Family 4 – 11 October 2014 - "Fabulous cottage, very cosy and comfortable. Great walking in all directions from Corfe."

The Woodwards and Wharams 13 – 20 September 2014 - We have had a really lovely week, the cottage is beautiful. We felt so comfortable and there wasn’t a thing that we wanted, that we couldn’t find in the cottage – superb!"

Elizabeth and Quintin Allen and family 23 – 30 August 2014 - "The weather has not been the best so this beautiful cottage has been our salvation and we feel sorry to leave."

Phillip and Olivia Horne - 19th April 2014 - We've had a wonderful time! This is quite possible the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in, and it's well located in a lovely village in one of our favourite parts of the world. Perfect for walking out from or just staying in.

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.
