With its location on a no-through lane which leads to the open space of Corfe Common, you can really enjoy peace and quiet, but with the benefit of shops and pubs within just 500 yards.

When you enter this special property, you’ll be entranced by the traditional low ceilings and stable door. The sitting room is beamed, featuring a flagstone floor and window seats, making this a charming setting for cosy evenings around the open fire. Take a step up and you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen with a door out to the rear garden and a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC. Head up the atmospheric steep, winding staircase and you’ll discover two comfortably eaved bedrooms: a double with a door leading through to the neighbouring twin – ideal for families with children.

Head outdoors and you’ll discover a beautiful and spacious rear garden which affords splendid views over the Purbeck Hills and nearby Corfe Castle. There is a terrace for enjoying those warm Dorset summer evenings, and steps head up to a grassed lawn with shrubs, flower beds and an orchard. To the front of the property, you’ll enjoy a stone front terrace, complete with shrubs and flowers which is reached by a sloping paved path. There is ample parking on Village Lane for your car.

Good location, not the best cottage we've stayed in, owners need to spend some money giving it an overhaul.

Great for a family but awkward if you are two couples as You have to go through one bedroom to get to the next otherwise a lovely cottage with a great location and a fabulous garden.

This cottage is honest and quirky. It's not as shiny as some, but it's location, charm and marvellous garden make it well worth a stay. The kitchen is small but well equipped and all appliances are efficient and easy to use. The living room furniture does look a bit dated, but it's very comfortable, and in keeping with this charming cottage. Since Read morewe last stayed the bathroom has been tidied up. Beds are reasonably comfy. Garden is amazing Hide

We loved the cottage. The location was perfect, so close to the centre of Corfe Castle but very quiet. We could access lots of walks from the cottage and were a 2 minute walk from Corfe Common. The beds were comfortable as was the rest of the cottage. The garden was perfect for our dog as he had lots of space to run around. We would happily go backRead more as the area was beautiful and there we so many great places to visit close by. Hide
