Gather your nearest and dearest for a holiday to remember in this stunning cottage. With five bedrooms, a large kitchen and wonderful outside terrace it can accommodate up to ten guests.

If your group is keen to explore during your stay, you won’t be left wanting. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful woodland and is just a short distance from the RSPB nature reserve at Arne, popularised by the BBC’s Autumnwatch and Winterwatch programmes and perfect for bird enthusiasts. A variety of walks are marked towards the coast at Shipstal Point. Arne has a Saxon church while the local town of Wareham has a good range of pubs, restaurants and shops. There’s also the opportunity to take a boat trip around Poole Harbour. The pretty village of Corfe Castle, with its eponymous castle ruins is just a short drive away.

Your base for exploring is a beautiful five-bedroom cottage that dates back to 1863. It’s a charming, expansive, semi-detached property offering comfortable accommodation for up to ten guests. The front door opens into a welcoming hallway that leads to the focal point of the property: a newly equipped open-plan kitchen and dining area. It’s a wonderfully bright and airy spot with glass bi-fold doors along one entire wall, opening onto the outside terrace. The kitchen itself has a generous workspace and comes with two microwaves, two electric ovens with hob, fridge/freezer with ice compartment, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. And when it’s time to break bread, you will find that the dining table accommodates ten comfortably. On the ground floor there is a large lounge with sofa seating for your entire party. Enjoy a board game or two from the wide selection or simply sit back and watch a film on the Smart TV. The ground floor features two bedrooms, a double and a twin, overlooking the garden. The hallway leads to a shower room with WC and further along there is a cloakroom with an additional WC. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a triple room with built-in wardrobes, a double bedroom with TV/DVD and a single room. There is also a bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC.

Outside there’s a pretty, fenced garden with a large rough lawn and small trees. The terrace that adjoins the kitchen has a charcoal BBQ and outdoor furniture that’s perfect if your group fancies dining al fresco. There’s off-road parking available for up to three cars on the paved driveway.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Useful little extras included. Shame towels aren't. A lovely garden. Good cottage. Liked the fact that 2 of the bedrooms were away from the others, like having as separate wing in the house.

Nice position close to RSBP reserve and countryside, quiet and clean, overall very nice. Like everywhere the price goes leaping up during school holidays.

Great property which suited our party, of 8 adults and 2 children, perfectly for a family birthday get together. A well equipped kitchen made catering for 10 a stress free experience! There was also the added bonus of Arne RSPB Reserve being so close.

Lovely cottage, just what we were after. Very comfortable & matched the photos perfectly. Great sound system & smart tv. A few welcoming essentials (tea, milk & loo roll) were supplied for arrival. Close to the beach. Overall a really lovely place to stay.
