Property code: IC027

Wake up to the glorious sight of Corfe Castle, then grab the leads and head off on a long walk with your four-legged friends. Up to two delighted dogs can join your party of six at this pretty period cottage with its large enclosed garden, at Kingston on the Isle of Purbeck. Make the most of your stunning position to explore the picturesque landscape of the Dorset peninsula, with its dramatic views of the Jurassic Coast on three sides.

 

Enter the charming cottage, which dates back to the 18th century, to find character-filled accommodation, complete with exposed stonework, timber beams and an inglenook fireplace. Return from forays to let your happy hounds stretch out in the lounge in the cosy glow of the wood burner. Prepare your dinner; feed them theirs in the kitchen then dine at the table nearby. While away the evening with a DVD or bask in the last of the sunshine on the patio, as the pups romp on the long lawn. Find a handy washer/dryer on the ground floor. One of your comfortable bedrooms is also at this level and two more, plus the family bathroom, can be found on the floor above. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower room. Enjoy meals out in the garden as often as the weather permits, and take in the beautiful views as you throw balls for your pals.

 

Pack a few treats and walk almost 2 miles to Corfe Castle. Marvel at the ruins of the 1,000-year-old castle; visit the model village where your pals can wander the exquisitely landscaped gardens with you then rest their weary paws in the tearoom. Make the 12-mile trip to gorgeous Lulworth Cove where they can run free on the beach to the left-hand side of the slipway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the beautiful Isle of Purbeck. Views from the cottage are stunning. The garden is large and offers plenty of room for children to play. The cottage is a great place to stay to explore the area.

Clean, bright and well equipped. Comfy beds and sofas. Good showers. Wonderful spot really quiet with fabulous views down to Corfe. Access to the coastal path very close for walking and good footpaths I to Corfe. Studland and chain ferry close by.

The best thing was the view. In most places with names like Castle View or Sea View, you might get a glimpse from an upstairs window, but this was a truly full-on, spectacular view of Corfe Castle set in the perfect relief of the Purbeck Hills and Poole Harbour.

Great location to explore Dorset. Stunning views and easy walk to Corfe Castle. Would have been nice to use garden more and have a bbq available. Cottage allows pets which we missed so not as clean as we'd have liked.

Fantastic location with a lovely big garden and terrace, where we enjoyed meals/drinks outside. Comfortable beds and a small but comprehensively equipped kitchen.
