  • Charming Grade II-listed cottage in a quiet rural Dorset village, wonderful walks and bike rides right from your doorstep
  • Fantastic views of the Purbeck Hills from the private rear garden, pub next door and Corfe Castle only 1.5 miles
  • Beautiful exposed beams dotted throughout with superb stone floors in the hall, breakfast room and kitchen
Property code: DC125

This pretty Grade II-listed mid-row cottage is the ideal retreat for all the family. With a pub next door and a stunning garden, this is a true countryside getaway.

Boasting location, location, location, the views from this eight-person, one-hound cottage will leave you spellbound. Take in the beauty of the Purbeck Hills from the minute you wake up and watch your pup buzz with excitement at the prospect of all the spectacular walkies. With bags of creature comforts at home, loads to explore nearby and a great country pub within 350 yards (with a dog-friendly beer garden), you can pack your holiday in Dorset with as much relaxation and exploration as you please.

 

A Grade-II listed cottage in the heart of the picturesque village of Church Knowle, this property has four bedrooms and two bathrooms – an ideal size for family holidays or getaways with friends. Exuding traditional farmhouse vibes, your tribe will immediately feel at home here. Start your morning with a hearty breakfast cooked up in the well-equipped kitchen. With plenty of space for dining, meals throughout the day will be a pleasure, rotating from the breakfast room to the conservatory/dining room to the outdoor table and chairs. In the evenings, the best place to be is either in the lounge, where your sleeping dog can lie in front of the wood burner as light-hearted chatter floods the room or the games room which includes a PS3 console and a reading area. To indulge in leisurely mornings and early nights, the bedrooms can be found on the first and second floors and have reduced height at the eaves.

 

Let your dog stretch his legs in the property’s garden in the morning, before heading off to explore the locale. Parading jaw-dropping views all around, there will be no shortage of routes nearby, but you can also head to the coast (2.5 miles) for salty sea strolls. For a trip through time with your pup, head to Corfe Castle (2 miles) and learn all about one of Britain's most famous survivors of the English Civil War. There is parking for 2 cars on the village lane directly in front of the cottage, spaces are not reserved and will be subject to availability.

We visited on the recommendation of a friend & weren't at all disappointed. The cottage is very clean/ spacious - 2 very generous doubles on the 1st floor and 2 twins in the roof, with 2 bathrooms and a downstairs toilet, so ideal for our group of 3 friends. We visited during Storm Isha, so didn't really use the conservatory or garden but it would Read morebe fantastic in the Spring/Summer.

Location is great, garden is lovely and cottage very comfortable. A little rustic in places and we were staying for two nights over a weekend and didn't have enough towels for each person, toilet roll or dishwasher tablets which was a little annoying. We called to ask for the missing towels to be dropped off and they said they would be but weren't.Read more Some small annoyances but overall we really enjoyed the cottage for our girls weekend.
