You don’t always get the chance to stay in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. But that’s not the only thing that makes this lovely stone cottage special. It’s just a short walk through the countryside to the charismatic village of Corfe Castle. Explore the dramatic ruins of the eponymous castle before recharging the batteries with some tasty local produce in one of the village’s pretty cafés or pubs. The villages of Langton Matravers, Worth Matravers and Kingston are also within walking distance, and very pretty walks they are too. You are also just a short drive from the spectacular coastal scenery of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and the sandy beach of Swanage.

The stone cottage is semi-detached and dates back over 200 years. It’s lovely and secluded, with incredible views of the surrounding countryside. The wonderfully inviting lounge has comfortable sofas, a wood burner for those chilly evenings and a TV/DVD. You will find a heated conservatory with a dining area against a backdrop of stunning countryside views. The fabulous fitted kitchen is complete with an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. On the ground floor is a large bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC. Upstairs you can expect three pretty bedrooms, one double, one twin and one single, each with garden views.

This lovely stone cottage stands in the grounds of Afflington Manor, surrounded by beautiful farmland that’s home to alpacas, cows and sheep. The lakes in the grounds attract a great deal of bird life, so don’t be surprised if ducks and herons come to say hello. Double doors open from the conservatory directly into the pretty garden. There’s a large lawn and outdoor furniture for al fresco dining. Keen to explore? Open the gate and follow the footpath across a small stream to the acres of fields. Or get the blood pumping with a game of tennis on the AstroTurf court which is available to be booked by prior arrangement with owner. There’s private parking outside the cottage with space for two cars.

Lovely cottage, very peaceful and relaxing. Smashing welcome pack with fresh eggs from the chicken run. With 5 of us we found the conservatory table great for meals and games, lovely space. Everything you could need in the kitchen and elsewhere around the cottage.

A comfortable cottage and one where the view cannot be beaten in terms of wildlife. We watched roe deer and hare in the field opposite whilst buzzards hovered in the sky and bats flew over at night. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting a peaceful stay surrounded by greenery.

We have enjoyed a wonderful week with our three grown up kids at Afflington Manor Lodge. The Owners are very welcoming and we got a lovely insight into life on a farm. We really loved the views from the conservatory on the beautifull garden and the stunning countryside. We did not miss a thing. We hope tu return sometimes.

This is our second year of staying at Afflington Manor Cottage and it is still delightful to stay here. Such a cosy cottage with a lovely view from the conservatory and garden. I like a slightly softer bed so take my own memory foam topper for the double bed. The cottage is well resourced and clean. And it is so quiet - just what we needed.
