A lovely cottage in a brilliant location. It was great to be able to leave the car and walk from the door. The garden was a great place for morning breakfast and evening meals with a fabulous view of Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills.

A fantastic well equipped cottage in a fabulous location. Good to have parking in a busy village, easy to access the lovely shops and Corfe castle as they were just a few minutes walk away. A good location for the beaches at Swanage and Studland. We had a fantastic holiday.

Extremely comfortable cottage in a lovely quiet but convenient location. Great to have parking nearby and sitting in the garden with views to the castle was lovely. Island Cottage Holidays were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you.
