One of Dorset’s best-known landmarks; Corfe Castle is set high on the hillside overlooking this picturesque village. Owned by the National Trust, you can explore the ruins and take in the wonderful views from the top. There are plenty of local amenities to choose from within these historic surrounds and fabulous walks to be had, which wind through rolling countryside. Ideally placed for touring, head south to the traditional seaside town of Swanage, where you can indulge in some fresh seafood or relax on the sandy beach. Travelling back inland will bring you to a choice of popular attractions, including Monkey World and the Tank Museum, which are ideal for a fun filled day out.

The semi-detached cottage is approached via driveway from the residential no through road where it is situated. A step leads to an entrance hall, which is the ideal place to leave muddy boots. Once inside, to the left is an inviting lounge with open fire and TV. Just next door is a comfortable dining room, the ruins of Corfe Castle can be seen across the countryside from both rooms. Set to the back of the property is kitchen with a Range style oven and gas hob, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a handy separate WC here and next door is a useful utility space with washing machine, tumble dryer and American style fridge/freezer. Heading back into the lounge to the front hallway you will find the staircase rising to the first floor. Immediately ahead of you is a separate WC, with the bathroom next door, with a shower over bath. Completing the property are the three bedrooms, one cosy twin and two doubles.

A door from the kitchen leads into the rear garden of the property. A patio area sits directly behind the cottage, with steps leading up to a second area with garden furniture ideal for dining outdoors.

Beautifully situated cottage, especially for dog owners, with the lovely common just behind the house. The house is warm and welcoming. Perfect for exploring the Purbecks. We thoroughly enjoyed being there. The house has everything you need but there could be a few improvements made.

Lovely location, perfect for dog walking, however felt very tired. Couldnt use the barbecue as so rusty the handle fell off. Kitchen had barely enough glassware etc- not enough for 6 people if they were staying, and the units didnt shut. Cobwebs everywhere. From a hygiene point of view there were no basins in either toilet. We would book again, becRead moreause of its brilliant location, but felt it overpriced. Please lower the key safe. We are both 5ft 7in and had to stand on pot to access. Hide

Excellent! This is a lovely cottage in the beautiful Dorset village of Corfe Castle. It is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac about 3/4 mile from the village centre (there is a pretty walk across the common, avoiding the main road); Corfe is very busy in the middle of summer so being slightly away was a bonus. The cottage is spacious, homely, well-equiRead morepped, clean and generally well 'set up'. There is a gorgeous, large garden and patio. Katy, the host, was very helpful and great to deal with. Hide

Very cosy cottage. Ideal for those with dogs as Corfe Castle is accessible directly from the back garden. The centre of the village is just a relatively short walk away on a footpath just opposite the property. Highly recommended. Keith and Mary.

Lovely cottage, super dog friendly with access to common from garden gate, lovely for morning walks. Location is really convenient for Studland and Swanage, but Corfe village has most things you need and is 10 minutes along path without touching roads. Nice enclosed garden with good outdoor seating.
